Not good.

Energy level of the tour guide was medium. The other tours we booked were dove by enthusiastic louder guides

This tour is insanely overpriced. Do not use this company! The guide was a lovely person but nothing like a professional guide and I doubt they have any such qualification. While, the guide definitely knew quite a lot about the Tower, they could not bring it to life because of a rather limited command of English. They were also not dressed in a way appropriate to a professional guide. Very disappointing and felt like we had been ripped off! The Tower is brilliant though.
