      Gavin is the Best Tour Guide!!!!!
      Gavin was amazing! We were running late for unforeseen circumstances and he waited patiently for us. It was quite a surprise when we were the only ones on the tour. It was a perfect day for seeing the crown jewels and the tower. Gavin made it fun and very interesting. My youngest daughter kept saying the entire trip how Gavin was the best tour we had because he remembered her name and no one else. To top it off it was lunchtime and Gavin reserved my family a table at a local restaurant to have lunch before our next tour. I would recommend him to everyone!

      Great way to see London monuments with kids
      We had a terrific private tour with Lucy at Westminster Abbey. Not only were we able to enter through a side entrance avoiding the long lines, but she was able to guide us through the Abbey and highlight the notable features in a way that kept our two boys (10 and 12) attention and interest. Because the Abbey is so popular, it was great having the dedicated guide as there are so many groups and so much to see it could be overwhelming otherwise. We also walked over to Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and across to finish at Trafalgar Square, getting interesting information and highlights along the way. I highly recommend this tour and Lucy in particular for doing an outstanding job!

      Well Worth It
      We had an amazing tour of the Tower of London with Ingrid through Pinocchio Tours! Ingrid was so engaging and knowledgeable. She made the history so fun for our 9 year old through fun facts and a quiz that ran throughout the tour. We would definitely book another tour with them again!!!

      A Wonderful Family Tour of the Tower of London!
      Our Private Family roriented visit with Lucy to the Tower of London was an incredible experience for all five of us. Lucy did a great job of providing the right amount of information to keep it informational and interesting for the adults while super fun and exciting for the kids. Lucy definitely brought the history to life as we walked through each building and area of the Tower! We HIGHLY recommend this tour and Lucy in particular for families looking for a great day at the Tower of London!

      5 Stars for Ben and the Tower of London!
      Our tour with Ben of the Tower of London was definitely a highlight of our trip and the number 1 activity for one of our kids. Ben was fantastic, very knowledgable and kept everything interesting for our wide age range of kids. Despite the rainy day, it was still one of our best days of our trip. I would love to have him give us a tour all around London!

      Entertaining and informative London tour
      Great tour of London historic sites with Dan. It was well-paced, entertaining and kept two kids (ages 10 and 13) and adults engaged. Dan shared lots of interesting factoids about Westminster, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and more. He was humorous and very conversational. Highly recommend!

      Wonderful family tour of the Tower of London
      My family had an amazing experience with our guide Ben during our visit to the Tower of London. Ben made the tour interesting for everyone, and went out of his way to ensure my 11 year old son was engaged and having fun. Our family is in agreement that having Ben as our guide was one of the highlights of our trip to London.

      Perfect family tour
      Lucy was so wonderful and paid special attention to our boys, eight and nine years old. She kept us moving and pointed out all the fun things the kids would like. She also answered adult questions and made everything so easy, fun, and interesting.

      Memorable tour with a knowledgable and engaging guide Mehru
      I was visiting London with my two children (aged 6 and 8) and wanted them to have a memorable experience and learn a little about the history of London. I booked this tour after reading the reviews online, and oh boy what a great choice. A bit pricey but truly worth it! Our tour guide was Mehru and she was absolutely amazing. She kept my children engaged and interested for a solid 3h (sounds impossible but she did it). She had an incredible ability to tell complex stories in an age-appropriate way (with some extra bits for adults). She made sure we avoided the crowds and in the end we managed to see everything and we learnt a lot about the British monarchy and the history of the Tower of London (and the city itself). Time just flew by. Incredible experience and one we will remember for a long time. Thank you Mehru!

      Generally a cool place to visit
      Enormous place with interesting things to see. On the contrary, the temporary exhibitions are a bit expensive. There also many kids around that could bother any concentrate visitors.

      Entertaining and lots of learning!
      This was a wonderful way to visit Westminster. Our guide (Tim) was well prepared, incredibly helpful and very knowledgeable about the history. He pointed out lots of interesting things. We did skip the line and enter somewhere other than general admission. Highly recommend this tour for families.

    I booked a private tour for my 12 year old neice and 70 year old father to visit the British Museum. Daddy has been to the museum several times before where we've had a private tour from cousins who are a docent at the museum. This was my neice's first visit.

    Dominic came with a binder of activities that he adapted to my neice's interests, and he communicated well and clearly with my father. Both were delighted with his kindness and knowledge. Middle schoolers are finicky at best, but when we asked my neice was was her favorite thing we saw during our 10 days in Europe, she told us it was the British Museum! Not many 12 year olds would say that, and we credit Dominic. Thank you!

    It was great for both us adults and for our kids (5 and 9).
    Our tour guide, Denisa, was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour entertaining and enjoyable for all of us. The British Museum was fascinating, and we particularly enjoyed the Egyptian section. We were pleasantly surprised to see our children so interested in the exhibits thanks also to Denisa's engaging explanations. She was really good at bringing history to life and as a result the time flew by. It was a fantastic experience, and we recommend this tour to everyone!
