Nice overview of sites in London. Too much time at St Paul’s and time waisted at Tower of London waiting for tour guide following viewing the Crown Jewels. Guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand

Great itinerary, excellent guide (john). Great way to see the "must see's". If you take the tea at Harrods option, you might want to dress a little nicer as it is very posh.

What a great way to see so much history in one day! Frank was a phenomenal guide with so much knowledge and quite fun. I must say it was a bit more active than anticipated—which was fine for us as I earned 12000 steps! So, anyone who is not as mobile should consider this. Additionally, the Harrod Tea wasn’t an option on Vistor when I booked but really wanted to do. Otherwise, I highly recommend!!

The best part of the tour was the commentary offered by our guide John. He added a great deal of side stories and information above and beyond what was expected.
