What people are saying about Tower of London

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Protesters & rain but still great thanks to Shane
Dissenters in London caused all Tour Buses bunches of issues on our excursion. However, the staff that welcomed us at The Aldwych were proficient and productive. When the transport showed up Shane dominated and he was phenomenal. What an incredible advantage for your organization. He was sorry ordinarily for functions that were thoroughly out of his control (dissidents/redirections) We were on the transport any longer than we expected and missed a couple of things because of the redirections. The climate changed in a moment from blue skies and daylight to hefty downpour yet my companions and I waited with Shane on the top deck, he stood up all through. He engaged with incredible data and humor and even played “Its Raining Men” for us when we were completely drenched. He was sorry again and kept us educated when he got off it was so altogether different. We couldn’t generally hear Luke and didn’t really observe him – he sat some place yet we didn’t have the foggiest idea where. It was frustrating that our £34 each outing was so severely upset yet Shane made it extraordinary fun!

Early Access Tower of London, Royal Walking Tour & Cruise reviewed by Sharon

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Spent seven hours wandering and loved it!
My sweetheart and I purchased tickets for Saturday and my plane wound up landing late, the trains were deferred and tracks were shut, yet they were sufficiently decent to let us utilize our tickets the following day instead of let us quickly to close! We wound up going through 7 hours meandering around the following day. Dress for the climate since a lot of it is meandering outside on the bulwarks taking a gander at engineering. We purchased the sight and sound guide and the visits were fascinating and self-managed. We took in an entire rich history where before we’d just known small amounts. We ate fried fish and French fries in the Royal Armories Cafe (flavorful.) Plan to go through the entire day at the Tower of London!
