Marc was a great guide!

We did the Tower of London tour. There was a lot of standing around on the grounds, vs going into any of the buildings. By the time the tour was over, the crowds and queues had grown. Seeing the Crown Jewels first thing was nice. I don’t understand why we didn’t make better use of the actual tour time. Expensive for what was provided.

I didn't realize this would include VIP access to the Tower of London - we were front and center in a small group of people watching the opening of the Tower. Ben was very entertaining and informative. We highly recommend this tour!

We toured the Tower of London with two of our young teenage children and the experience could not have been better. Ben was such a great host! He was truly knowledgeable, engaging, and warm. We have used Walks several times in Rome, NYC, Paris, and now London. We have always had excellent guides and a great experience!
