The tour was very insightful and fascinating. Despite the rainy weather we enjoyed the tour, even with kids. Our tour guide, Barry, was great and kept it entertaining with his sense of humour. The group was small as promised. I would definitely recommend it

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.

Schöner Spaziergang durch London. Tom, unsere Guide, hat uns kurzweilig durch die Stadt geführt. Man merkt, dass sie ihre Stadt liebt und kennt. Auch als Nichtenglischmuttersprachler hatte ich keine Probleme sie zu verstehen. Fachlich war es absolut in Ordnung. Dafür, dass der Vormittag völlig verregnet war konnte ja auch niemand was. Schade war halt, dass die Gruppe relativ (14 Personen) groß war und die Führung ohne Headsets stattfand. So war es teilweise schwierig dem Vorgetragenen zu folgen. Ausserdem blieben immer wiederl Teilnehmer hinterher, oder gingen verloren, so dass wir im strömdenden Regen auf Nachzügler warten mussten. Dadurch hatte die Tour Längen. Trotzdem für den Preis unschlagbar. Würde ich wieder buchen.
