Worth your time and money!

I was very skeptical about the worth of the tour, but it was incredible to see the opening ceremony and enjoy a guided tour before the crowds started getting in. The information we got during the tour was crucial, and I don’t think it would be an experience worth remembering without it. The priority access also means a lot, as the queue for the Tower Bridge was immense! The view was spectacular. Definitely worth it!

Rick

Extremely interesting!

The tour was amazing! Our guide was very informative and told us great stories about the British monarchy throughout the past. It’s incredible to walk through the medieval towers and hear such a rich history. I loved the opening ceremony and the Crown Jewels, and I think it’s definitely worth paying a bit more to avoid the crowds. The Victorian Engine Rooms in the Tower Bridge were also super exciting, and the walkway’s panoramic views were simply breathtaking. Loved it!
