It was totally worth it! The tickets includes the visit to the tower and medieval dungeon guided tour! All you have to do, reach the tower at around 9:00! At the 3rd floor, you can show the booking voucher and they will give a ticket for the same! Visit the tower and get back to 1st floor, from where the medieval tour starts! The tour has fixed timings! The english tour starts at 10. So reach there by 10 and show the ticket and tour starts! Very convenient option! Totally worth it!
