Me and my partner did this tour in October 2020. We were the only 2 people on this tour. This was a shame to the tour guide as he deserved a bigger audience but good for us to have such a personnel tour. The tour provided a good insight into the subject matter of palace history and in the latter part of parliament history. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in this subject.

Informative walk

Nice walk through London. Tom, our guide, gave us an entertaining tour of the city. You can tell that she loves and knows her city. Even as a non-native English speaker, I had no problems understanding them. Technically, it was absolutely fine. Because the morning was completely rainy nobody could do anything. It was a shame that the group was relatively large (14 people) and the tour took place without headsets. So it was sometimes difficult to follow what was said. In addition, participants always stayed behind or were lost, so that we had to wait for stragglers in the pouring rain. This made the tour long. Still unbeatable for the price. I would book again.

Very good guide but speaks very fast

Very nice and helpful guide for photos or other questions ... Only downside speaks very quickly, I did not understand everything if you are beginners I'm not sure that you'll be fine, but really a guide he knows what he is talking about and explains very well things and thinks about the toilet pose and also allows us to rest.
