    A must for any Harry Potter fan
    This was an amazing tour, with lots of comedic moments and information we didn’t know about.Benjamin was very enthusiastic during all the tour and made it more enjoyable, definitely coming back. Victoria street do make you feel like you are in Diagon Alley.

    A great walking tour.
    This was a great tour that hit all the highlights and was a great way to begin our time in London. Ari, our guide, was so friendly and informative. She really knew her stuff, and she was happy to answer any questions we might have. She watched out for our safety and made sure we could find her if we got distracted. Had a great time.

    Lovely walking tour of London
    Very good experience with Brandon. We ended up on the 5 hour version of the tour (some people in the group chose the 3 hour version), but Brandon was fun and engaging throughout the duration. We walked all over London and took in the history. Great experience and highly recommended for first time visitors to the city.

    Great waking tour.
    Our guide was excellent. He showed us many areas and gave us interesting stories behind the story. We saw Pall Mall and he gave a great history and current events of the building and the area.

    Amazing Guide
    It was a very informative tour. It touched upon all the important historical sites as listed. Our guide Cleo was lovely. She told many stories of each site that really made everything that much more interesting. We all enjoyed our tour very much!

    Five hour walking tour of London with Greg
    The tour was rigorous, as advertised. We walked 20K steps. The weather was cold and blustery, and we were unable to get very close to some of the sights because of a huge marathon being run. In spite of this, Greg was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide who diverted to some other fascinating sights which were accessible. His knowledge is encyclopedic, and his presentations lively and humorous. We greatly enjoyed and appreciated the tour and Greg, and highly recommend both.

    Disappointed
    Was very deceiving. Showed a big red bus and thought it was perfect. My sister and I are in our eighties. No way could we walk for three hours. Your tour person said to contact you for a full refund. Thank you.

    Great tour and excellent guide
    Excellent tour, our guide John was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and a joy to walk around with. It’s the extra detail provided by John which made the tour experience for us.

    Mark did a phenomenal job providing unique insights during the course of our tour! I highly recommend this tour company. Very well organized and the different team members communicated on best course of action when the Marathon blocked many roads near Buckingham Palace. We loved the tour and our tour guide.

    Great tour to visit the town
    Kirsty was our tour guide and she was highly knowledgeable, very approachable, very funny. You can see that she is someone who trully loves movies, culture, and Harry Potter stuff, and of course... She is a Slytherin, which makes her even better !

The tour for Palaces and Parliament was fully paid for 94 pounds via London Pass. We should be entitled to leave a review of our bad experience if we have a legitimate booking but tour company has lodged complaint with Trip Advisor!

Tour company changed our initial booking 11 hours after confirmation due to London Pass restrictions which were not disclosed. Nary an apology for screwing up our schedule on a tight trip. On the revised date, due to parliamentary schedules, the road leading up to meet up point was practically roadblocked, and we were stuck for 30 mins along one small stretch of road.

However tour company operator was incommunicado, and REFUSED to let us join a tour we had paid 94 pounds for.

This, I believe, is unreasonable.

We (my parents and I) started our tour with Jason and a small group on a sunny Monday in October '22.

To quickly summarize it: It was awesome.

Even though my father is not fluent in English, he was able to follow on nearly everything Jason explained. Jason himself was very authentic, funny and eager to provide as much information, stories and insights as deemed interesting for us. He also took the time answering to questions and having a quick chat on different topics. We saw and experienced much more than we would have doing the visit on our own.

I can only recommend this tour, especially with Jason as your guide!

Thanks for a great day and Jason is a real ambassador for London!

This tour was such a treat! We were broken into fairly small groups (I think we had 12 in ours). Our guide, Adrian, was exceptional and provided a tour filled with history, humor, and a few theatrics. We even got to see the King! I highly recommend this tour, but think it would be of particular interest to first-time visitors or who want to hit a good handful of the key sites in a fairly short period of time.

Mark, our guide for the 3 hour light walk trip around the 20+ sights of London was extremely informative interesting. He answered questions en route on English subject matter/issues easily choosing simple but effective wording. His audience comprised of Americans, Germans and Australians 14 - 50's age range. It snowed for an hour or more during our trip so we were lucky not to have crowded sights:)

We (3) thoroughly enjoyed our 3hr walking tour with Mark.

We took this review because it was included in our London Pass and wanted to get a bit more context about some of these sites. We toured on Sunday morning, April 30, less than a week before the coronation. This created a challenge due to crowds and various closures/blockages of thoroughfares around Buckingham Palace. Our particular tour guide (Anabel) was also challenged because the other guide didn't show up, so she led a tour of 40 people. Despite the cumbersome size of our group and the aforementioned difficulties getting around, Anabel did an excellent job of presenting information about the various sites, and some related context. I'm sure she would have been able to be a bit more detailed if she had a smaller group, but considering what she had to work with, she did a truly excellent job! She was also friendly and social, despite the obvious stress of these challenges. I think this is a worthwhile tour for anyone but the most knowledgeable Anglophile - I am fairly well-read in this area of history, and I learned some things too - huzzah!

Five stars all the way. First, we emailed at midnight the night before to book a 10am tour with our London Pass. We got confirmation at 3:30am via email and it was smooth sailing with all the information provided. We toured Wed May 3 - just before Coronation Day - and out Guide Cleo was fabulous. She got us through the challenges of crowds and gates - she pointed out the unexpected ride by from the King's Foot Guards just outside Buckingham Palace. She was a wealth of fun informationa and an excellent energy. So much fun.

The tour was very good! Jason, our guide, was very knowledgeable and did a very good job getting us from one place to the next while keeping the information flowing, even though there was an impossible amount of people all around us (specially at the changing of the guards site). No one got lost or delayed thanks to him. A bit more history would have been welcome, but all around a very good experience.

Thanks very much to Will for a great tour of Westminster on the Palaces and Parliament Tour. It was during the week after the Queen had passed away and the streets were crowded and many streets were barricaded and closed to traffic. Will negotiated all of these hurdles like a true pro and we were able to see everything that the tour offered, in particular around Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey.

The Palaces and Parliament Tour ended up being an amazing experience for my wife and I! Our guide, Christopher, was a wealth of knowledge the entire way through and kept the tour fairly entertaining as well. As with all walking tours, you’ll want to be sure to bring some comfortable walking shoes and this tour does cover a lot of ground. We found out afterwards that there were actually longer tour options. But I found that this 3 hour tour was the perfect amount of time since we had other plans for the day. The tour does end near Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben) and Westminster Abbey and our guide was able to give us great restaurant recommendations for lunch. But I would definitely book this tour if you’re wanting a more personal guided experience through London, and want to reach places that the tour buses can’t.

Our family of four took this (3 hour) walking tour with Tim the very afternoon we arrived in London. It was a small group - just 8 including our guide - and a perfect way to get oriented with the borough of Westminster and the major historical sites there. Tim's thorough narratives were informative and entertaining. The tour was not rushed and actually went longer than scheduled, but we didn't notice as there was much to take in the entire time. For us, it was a great way to start our trip and provided context as we went on to explore further the sites within Westminster, the City of London and beyond.
