We did the Early Access Crown Jewels: Tower of London Complete Tour with Opening Ceremony on 13th July with Vivian. Vivian was an incredibly bubbly and friendly guide and was incredibly knowledgeable about all areas of the Tower of London. There was only a small group of us that were allowed inside to watch the Opening Ceremony. A lot of the tour is self-guided and we didn't realise that when booking the tour. The guide was not allowed in to section with the Crown Jewels or the White Tower. Visiting these 2 sections made up the majority of the tour. Whilst Vivian was incredibly informative about other areas of the Tower of London I had imaged more insights and stories than the tour included.

My guide Gina was an absolute joy, smart, witty, a pleasure to meet. The tour was informative without being dry. LOVED IT!

Richard was an excellent guide and very able to express his knowledge to others. He adapted the tour to our pace as my husband is not able to walk great distances or very fast. Our son also enjoyed the tour and it is hard to hold his attention.
