    Frank was amazing; so passionate and was so informed and articulate about the Abbey, its significance and its history. I loved this tour and would recommend it to everyone. One note, though, his PRIVATE DANCER performances are reserved for a select few Thank you for a fabulous time. The Travel Coven from Nevada.

    Great visit of Westminster Abby with our very knowledgeable tour guide Lucy! Lots of valuable explanations provided. Ample time to see the church and take photos. We were accompanied safely to the London Eye, which was also memorable.

    We enjoyed seeing the Abby and the London Eye. The tour was a bit unorganized with a long wait time. At one point, we were unsure if we had a guide or not. Eventually, we met the guide and was able to go inside. The tour guide was good and provided lots of info, but overall, the organization should have been better.
