This tour was a highlight of our 2 week trip from Barcelona to London! Our guide Jo was not only incredibly knowledgeable about- Everything!, but she always put us in exactly the right spot at the right time for fantastic access! Did I mention her sense of humor? She had us laughing constantly; her historical remarks were highlighted with humorous anecdotes with perfect timing! The Crown Jewels and armor exhibit at the Tower rival any traditional museum visit, and we saw the Horse Guard change at the palace after a very pleasant river excursion on the Thames. Great Tour!
