Phil our guide was fantastic! His stories and knowledge we excellent and he was hilarious. He also got us to just the right spot for viewing changing of the guard. Really recommend early entrance to the tower to skip the lines.

The tour was great. Nathan was informative and funny. We are a Family of 5 with 3 teenagers, and it was just enough length wise and there was plenty of things to see that held everyone’s interest. My favorite part was The Tower of London. Only complaint is that we could of used 30 minutes more there. By time the opening ceremony is over you only have approximately 55 minutes to see everything at the tower until you meet for the next place.
