This was a great way to get to see the Tower of London and the Changing of the guard. David was funny and knowledgeable about London. He was spot on with timing to make sure we did not miss anything. He took us to the best spots and it was a nice easy pace.

Our tour guide was brilliant, cheeky and gave loads of local knowledge as well the touristy history. I would suggest anyone on a trip to London (your first or 100th time) should take this tour. But wear comfortable shoes!!!

We did not realize from the Vitour description that the Guard did not change on Saturdays. We purchased this tour specifically for that reason and were disappointed. But the Tower of London was interesting.

Tour guide was brilliant and very knowledgeable, however everything felt very rushed. You’re only allowed an hour to explore the Tower of London. Also I feel like the word “cruise” is misleading in this. You literally just ride a boat down the river for not even 20 mins and you’re seated in a part of the boat that makes it difficult to photograph anything as it’s through glass. Eat your wheaties and wear comfy shoes for this tour because you’ll be walking A LOT. (and, most of the way, on uneven ground, so that doesn’t help) The coolest part was the horse parade in my opinion
