Fantastic tour and a very creative way to see the changing of the guard. Ben was awesome at delivering history and anecdotes, and knew the best spots for guard sighting. Highly recommended!

Gareth is a great raconteur and enthralling guide!

Paul adapted very well to changed conditions and timings that arose due to Trooping rehearsals. We all felt privileged and well cared for.

Paul is fantastic

This was a fun tour with Scott, who was full of interesting facts and songs to keep ones interest up. Seeing Buckingham Palace, St James' Palace, the Horse Guards Parade, the old and the new guard marching along with the horse guard also was a real treat. It felt like you got to see the most possible opportunities for royal guards and all the pomp and ceremony you can cram into a 90 minute tour.
