Awesome experience
This is well worth the time and expense. We opted for the private tour, Becky was very knowledgeable and friendly. She knew exactly where to stop for the very best views at multiple locations.

Very cool
Today was our lucky day, Danielle was our tour guide, ans me and my girlfriend were the only two on the tour. (Probably due to Corona virus stuff). Danielle was super funny, knowledgeable & engaging. She made the tour fun, and kept our minds off the cold. She was full of insight and knew exactly where to stand for the best photos. She preemptively got you in position so you could take an amazing photo, and get the best view of the proceedings. Veryyyy fun! We only regret not getting a photo with our awesome guide!

Christmas Holiday and New Years Vacation
We recently returned from a one week vacation in London and stayed from shortly Christmas through the New Year holiday. We traveled with our three teenage children and had an amazing time staying in London and visiting Bath and Stonehenge as well. I highly recommend the semi private or private tour of the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. Our tour guide, Kathy Harrison was nothing short of amazing. She was extremely personable and nice and went far beyond the call of duty to make sure we were at the right spots at the right time. As a local Londoner she provided great insight into the history, culture and traditions of the Royal Family. Quite frankly, she was a walking encyclopedia and was patient and gracious enough to indulge me in all my curious questions. If you have a chance to take this tour please ask for Kathy. She was simply lovely.

Just Enough Information for Me to Remember
Sep. 2019
Kathy is a wonderful and personable docent. She gave me concise and interesting explanation and stories of the key pieces of art work. Depsite studying art in school and reading on my own, I tend to remember the meanings of paintings by listening to people who care about art. Thank you.
