Our tour guide Anna was prompt, professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. The tour was at a good pace and we visited some places where the average person wouldn’t know about. The high tea at Kensington Palace was superb. It should be noted that you have to find your own way back from Kensington Palace as the tour ends there (was not a problem for us). Definitely a recommend.

Great Tour, Guide (david) was very knowledgeable about everything we asked about and the commentary was excellent! Highly recommend. Tour was well paced and the Tea experience was very relaxing.
