    This was the best tour I’ve done in London. My tour guide Mark was knowledgeable and fun and I learned a lot from him.

    A terrible, expensive mistake
    If I hadn’t prepaid I would have walked away within 5 minutes of the start of our tour. She started off by stating it was a two hour tour until I reminded her it wasn’t. She brushed aside my comment. Our tour guide just started in giving us random facts about the Tower never asking us what we wanted to learn or discover. She had a set speech in mind whether we were interested or not. She ignored our questions. Kept talking when we were obviously trying to read something or trying to ask our questions. Just rude. Repeated, inappropriate personal opinions about Arab sheik money invading London; the current generation and their views on LGTBQ+ and sexist comments made towards me (male). I have been traveling around the world for 35 years and this had to be one of the top 5% wastes of money when it comes to tours. Shameful. She was knowledgeable but disconnected, arrogant, condescending and could not care less about whether we had a good tour. She did her thing and got paid. This is the first time EVER that I didn’t tip a guide. This was my partner’s birthday. As well as her first full day ever in London. A terrible disappointment. Do yourself a favor and book another tour or just listen to the beefeaters and save your money. Oh and she badmouthed her own tour owners/managers. You can read my reviews. I very very rarely post a bad one but I do not want others to experience the same disappointment or incredibly unprofessional guide.

    Do it
    Private tours in London on the way to go. If you have anything that you are really excited to see that might have really long lines just spend the extra money and booked us because you will be thankful later. Some of the lines to get in to see the crown jewels and other attractions were so knowledgeably long that we were really glad that we did this

    Don’t be fooled!
    Don’t be taken in by this scam. The Victoria and Albert Museum is free (except for temporary exhibitions which charge for admission). More to the point the museum has a team of expert voluntary guides who run FREE tours throughout the day (see V&A website for details and reviews).

    Fantastic Tour
    Stephanie of Babylon Tours provided an amazing tour for our party of four adult family members. She was inspirational, knowledgeable, and great fun! She answered all our questions and made sure that we saw everything we wanted in the time with her. This experience was the highlight of our week in London.

    Tower Bridge, London, UK
    Tower Bridge, London, UK :- It can transport you to Victorian London, telling the story of the city’s defining landmark from the very beginning. One can observe, architecture and engineering, watch city life unfold in panorama from its high-level Walkways and Glass Floors. During the visit you’ll even get to experience the magic of a Bridge Lift beneath your feet. Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London.Taking photographs of the Tower bridge is a favorite London tourist activity, but you can also go inside the bridge, where you'll have a magnificent view over London from the walkway between the two bridge towers. Inside the bridge is the Tower bridge Exhibition, a display area that encompasses the walkway and the two famous towers where you can observe the Victorian engine room. The bridge is movable. The large vessels, Cruises going to Thames river, can cross the bridge after pulling two parts of bridge in upward direction. Near about 48,000 people cross Tower Bridge each day.

    Place of wonder
    I want to first start off by saying if you plan on visiting the museum this is the way to do it. We got in to the museum before the public and got to take pictures unobstructed by crowds of folks. We took the enlightenment tour and while the guide was a lovely woman she was a bit boring or should I say speaking too long on various subjects. This is a general tour and should be handled in that fashion, while experts are amazing folks they tend to not make good guides or speakers as they rarely discern the temperature of the audience and change their approach and cadence. I did learn a lot but would have wanted more area covered and "facts" or "stories" breifened as to not lose your audience. There was so many things that we missed just in the first section. This is a fantastic institution and excellence should be the order of the day. TIP: After leaving the museum (about 15 mins of opening) the lines were crazy. It was Easter so maybe that was the reason!? They have a queuing area that did seem large and it appeared it was used all the time.

    Good history tour
    Was a good day out. The beefeaters have a lot of knowledge and we learnt a lot of hidden history from them as the tour went on. Was good to walk around after and learn more. I would go again

    Lovely day at the British Museum with Maria
    The depth of material at the British Museum is overwhelming. We were grateful to have a guide that gave us an amazing overview and we left with a greater perspective of the great ancient societies that preceded ours. Maria helped us link the Egyptian, Assyrian, and Greek & Roman collection in a meaningful way.

    Frida Kahlo exhibition
    The V&A put on some great exhibitions and this was one of them. I learned so much about this amazing woman and I had no idea what a challenging life she had with her health. The V&A is a fantastic venue and was able to cope with the mass of people who wanted to go. The staff really got into the mood of Frida and dressed in some of her signature pieces, which was a lovely touch.

    Private tour: discovering the British Museum
    The presenter of this tour was correct, most of the time. I did have to correct her when she dated the famous Rosetta Stone to 196 AD. It was , in fact, made in 196 BC. But otherwise, a good, informative tour, from which I learned a lot. Little mistakes do happen, we are human, not computers!

    Good History Tour
    We took a guided tour of the Tower of London in the early morning to see the official opening ceremony and to see the Crown Jewels before the crowds showed up. It was worth getting up early to do. We had an interesting guided tour and our guide told us some history behind the historical landmark, the Crown Jewels and the various artifacts displayed as we walked through it. There are several flights of stairs to climb to see all the rooms and museum pieces. If you are in average physical shape, it shouldn't be a problem to climb the stairs. The Crown Jewels are spectacular. They were much more than we expected. It's amazing that this landmark has stood for about 1,000 years. Actually, there was a Roman fort there before and there is a wall from that fort still standing. After about an hour of walking around the crowds were pouring in and the site started becoming really crowded. However, we were about finished and ready to walk over the the Tower Bridge part of the tour so it worked out nice for us. The Tower Bridge is not really a tour as you will just have a pass to explore it yourself. It's an interesting structure and an iconic landmark in London. Compared to other landmarks in London, it's rather young being built in the late 19th century. You can get some good views of the Thames River and London while exploring the bridge. Mostly, the Tower of London is the high point of the tour. If you go in the morning, it will be lunch time when you are done exploring and there are several places to eat in the area. If you visit London and you are interested in any way about the history of London, you must see and explore these landmarks.

    A sublime place to visit - but join to save money
    Not every exhibition here is up to scratch - but when they do one well - its momentous and memorable. Winnie the Pooh for a recent example was divine- though what on earth those stuffed toy monstrosities in the shop have to do with the original drawings is somewhat of a mystery. Given that the VnA prides itself on being a shopping destination it needs to step up on the exhibition shops. The dining rooms - are wonderful but why oh why did they put a plastic white anonymous cafe running alongside them. I pity the poor visitors who have never discovered these rooms. You get discount as a member in the shop and cafe. The permanent exhibition of tapestries is a really great place to find a soulful peace, as are the miniature paintings.

    Lots to see but a feeling of a city devoid of its inhabitants and overrun by others.
    On a wet Sunday morning, I travelled to Hampton Court. Walked up to the main gate of the palace along the river path, then had to go back along the main driveway to buy my ticket. Off to the Chapel Royal for the 11am Sung Eucharist. Then I went round all the various sections of the palace. The Young Henry exhibition made use of video played on to the wall. Having sets of three chairs, one each for Henry, Catherine of Aragon and Wolsey, was a novel idea. HenryVIII's apartments were busy. A woman in Tudor costume was conducting a lesson for a mixed group of visitors. ' Put up your hand if you can tell me what heresy is!' Excellent mock up of a discussion in council of the problem of the succession, seen from contemporary eyes in Henry V111's reign. Can a woman reign? ' We shall have to pray that young Prince Edward grows up as strong and healthy as his father was when young!' On to the later royals, and a palace with a different feel, William and Mary, then the Hanoverians. In the Hanoverian displays, many headless costumed paper figures , and paper sculpture food, very effective. Art gallery excellent. The palace gardens seen through the window looked impressive, but not for exploring on a wet day. Many different courts and passages. Lots of pushchairs and umbrellas, and people sitting under cover, waiting for the rain to stop. Plenty of toilets, a big plus. Snack lunch in Tiltyard cafe, scone and jam, and a cup of tea. Then the long wAlk back to the station in the rain. On a fine summer's day it would be nice to take a boat trip on the river. I hadn't realised that most of the Tudor interiors except for Wolsey's closet , had been stripped out when the palace was remodelled by later monarchs. A worthwhile visit, costing £20. Various shops, selling souvenirs.
