      Fantastic Tour
      Absolutely loved this tour with Lucy. Her pre-tour communication was excellent. The tour itself was fantastic. Really informative without being boring. Her delivery was engaging, the pace was great and her knowledge was amazing. The Tower itself was so great to see and the Crown Jewels were mesmerising. All in all a great tour that I would have no hesitation in recommending.

      Lucy was fantastic. Patient with our two girls and passionate about sharing English history. Gave great advice about how to see the Jewels efficiently while avoiding crowds as best as possible. Well done!

      Tower of London private tour - ideal for families
      I felt compelled to write a review because our experience was genuinely so wonderful. We toured the Tower of London as a group of nine - an extended family with three generations and children the ages 9, 6, and 3. The reservation process was a cinch and felt reassuringly personal and frictionless. Our tour guide, Mehru, was truly outstanding. She was extremely knowledgeable, attentive, kind, and engaging. We learned a ton, covered so much ground efficiently, and she was very mindful in anticipating our needs and going above and beyond to make it a memorable morning. I'd highly recommend this tour company and Mehru specifically, and we certainly intend to seek them out for future travel needs. What a great find!

      Kid friendly guided tour of the Tower of London.
      I can’t say enough about our tour guide Dan. He was an absolute pleasure and really informative. He really engaged both of our girls (ages 6 and 12) which is difficult with the almost teenager. Best tour we had on our week in London. Thanks Dan. Kudos to you.

      blue badge tour is awesome
      Alex was fabulous! The tour was full of info for adults and kids, and she kept my boys (6and 12) engaged in the experience. We dont have time to stop and read plaques. We had a wonderful time and learned so much. And we loved that she gave stories that were beyond what's written in textbooks. Recommend this tour, and Alexandra, at the highest!

      Book Mehru for the Tower of London tour.
      Mehru was our tour guide for 4 adults and 4 kids. We toured the Tower of London with her and she was wonderful!! Our kids range in age from 10 to 14 and she kept them all engaged and excited. She mentioned the gore we asked for in our notes which was impressive because a lot of guides don’t read the notes and give generic tours. We all really loved our time with her! Well done Mehru!

      Great tour - highly recommend!!
      THIS TOUR WAS FANTASTIC!!! Lucy was so knowledgeable on everything related to the Tower of London. My 8 year old had read a book on history of the Tower of London and she was thrilled to see it and the tour did not disappoint. We also had 5 other adults who really enjoyed it. Her stories were great and we could have listened to her talk about the history of the tower all day! Totally worth doing this tour - even if you have no kids with you!!!

      Amazing and massive
      It’s an amazing collection and we are lucky to have Lucy as a guide, very knowledgeable and accommodating to the short attention span of kids. She gave a lasting impression to the inquisitive mind of my grandson, who’s fascination to dinosaurs is limitless. Thank you so much , Lucy 🥰

      Nice Way to Explore the Tower
      A tour of the Tower of London was a the top of my list for our London vacation and a private guide through was the ideal way to explore the tower and its grounds. Alex was very nice and was able to hold our twelve year olds attention throughout, with great knowledge of the history of the Tower and fun stories. We skipped the line in and Alex arranged our day so we didn't have too long of a wait in the cold to see the Crown Jewels. Overall we enjoyed the tour and our day at the Tower. We would definitely recommend the private tour.

      Tour with Tim
      Tim was such a great tour guide. There is no way we would’ve learned as much about the Tower of London without him. He was efficient at getting us in to see all that the tower had to offer while telling us a lot about the history along the way. we have three children ages 6, 9, 11 and he made sure to make it fun and interesting for them as well. Only thing is that the tour is pretty expensive. I’m sure that the price includes the price of admission, which, in and of itself is significant, but it is a lot to spend.

      Brilliant tour of the Tower.
      Ben Jacobs, our tour guide, was terrific. He was great with our 3 year old, 6 year old and the adults as well. We learned so much and had great fun. Highly recommend!

      100% recommended private family tour
      For our kids' (ages 12, 10, and 7) first trip to London, we wanted to make sure they enjoyed themselves while learning. I'm so glad we took this tour! Mehru, the guide, was super friendly and engaging with the kids, and kept their interest over the 3 plus hours of the tour. She tailored the tour to our preferences, and had wonderful stories to tell about the Tower of London. She knew just when to get to each part of the tower so as to avoid the crowds, so we got to see everything!
