Well organise, met the guide as planned as per the joining instructions. The guide gave a brief overview of the events, as we walked across to the Tower of London. The guide (Rob) was easy going and answered questions from the group, that we could all hear. Tower of Londsn opening ceremony was amazing but what made it was that the tower itself was not open, so it felt really privilege to see this event The crown jewels is a must and cannot describe them other than WOW Tower bridge is for the mechanics and how the bridge works is amazing. The walkway above the road is one to do, especially walking over the glass element in the walkway. Overall for the cost of this private tour it is worth it especially for the Tower of London.

Early access worked perfectly! Tons of people already in line outside by 7:30am and we bypassed them all. The opening key ceremony was good and getting first access to the Crown Jewels was huge! After we came out the line was HUGE! Rob was a great guide as well. Very knowledgeable and easy to listen to.

Great tour! We definitely enjoyed the Early Access to the Tower of London. The tour actually lasted longer than the description and we had to leave before we went to the top of the bridge due to having another tour booked. So, leave yourself time between tours so that you don't miss out.
