Great! A must see! It’s a pleasant walking tour for all ages. It helps you attend the sights early before the crowds. Lots of history. Don our tour guide was amazing!
Must do, even if seen Tower before
Paige_M, May 2024
This tour is amazing. We have been to the tower before and this tour exceeded expectations! The knowledge and story telling expertise from our guide was extensive. The beefeater’s meeting was icing and enjoyed by all. Thank you Fia 💕

Don was good but did not pay attention to his disabled group members Walked very fast and started talking to the group before all were there Also did not speak loud enough for the crowded environment- needed to use a mic/ headphones set up
Great, well organized, and informative tour
Korie_G, May 2024
Cleo was an amazing tour guide. We saw everything and it was very well organized. We highly recommend this. Your.
Enjoyable tour
Todd_E, May 2024
We really enjoyed our tour of the Tower of London with Irina. She was a great guide and we were glad to not have to use the “box boxes”
Interesting tour. Large group however.
James_T, May 2024
Meeting and speaking to the Beefeater. The Crown Jewels are amazing. Wish we could have gotten into the Chapel, it was closed.
Tour of Tower of London with a visit with a Beefeater
SarahLauren_K, May 2024
Ben was an entertaining and well informed tour guide, leading us to a great visit with a Beefeater, early entry to Crown Jewels (before big crowds came), and gave breaks for us to personalize the experience (have a snack break or take a little more time to dive deeper if we felt called to). Fantastic recommendations and a very enjoyable time.
History lesson
Michelle_K, May 2024
Lots of interesting history our guide was very knowledgable. Beautiful views of the bridge. Learned a lot about the kings
Great Tour
Lorraine_D, May 2024
Ben was an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. He even recognized us and chatted a bit when we met up the next day as we were walking to our hotel. The tour is a must see if you're visiting London.
Recommend this tour
Mary_S, May 2024
This was a great way to get in early before the crowds and learn about the history of the Tower! Marie was a wonderful guide who had a wealth of information and stories about this place. It’s fun to meet the Beefeaters all around the Tower and learn about their lives and duties. It’s a full day if you decide to go on after the tour and visit the various towers and dungeons. There’s places to eat in there after the tour ends, and benches to sit upon around the courtyard. Highly recommend this tour!!
More than we expected!
Darcy_R, May 2024
Wow! We had no idea what we were in for - in the best of ways! It was so much more than the Crown Jewels (which were stunning!). Maria was a great tour guide. We learned so much from her stories that we now want to look into learning even more about the Tower of London and the Beef Eaters! (she could use a mic when she has such a large group).
Wonderful step back in time
Graham_H, May 2024
The Beefeater who was part of our small group tour was Chris Skaife, former Ravenmaster and star of the TV show “Secrets of the Tower of London.” We had an excellent interaction with him - a highlight of our visit.
Overall Worthwhile
Janice_L, May 2024
Our tour guide Miranda was very personable and knowledgeable. Meeting the Beefeater was fun. We were able to get into the Crown Jewels exhibit before it got terribly crowded. My suggestions would be for the tour guide would be to carry a flag or something similar, as she was short and sometimes difficult to see. Also, the LetzGo company (contracted through Viator) should consider using small group audio headsets, as the guides low volume voice made it difficult to hear her, and several of us missed what she was explaining sometimes. The tour was worthwhile if not a bit long. Would recommend.
Amazing history
Will_V, May 2024
Our guide was great and Tower of London magnificent. No queue for Crown Jewels and beefeaters chat was great 👍
Don’t advise it. Too much money for little understandable info. Needs audio ear pieces
David_M, May 2024
Nothing. Could not hear the guide. Thought it was too much money for what we got. Needed audio equipment
Fun time at the Tower of London
Thomas_W, May 2024
The tour guide was excellent! She was very informative with lots of details. Chris, the beef eater was wonderful. Very cheerful and full of more information and fun facts. There was more than expected to see at the tower of London. Many exhibits to walk-through. Several shops if you like to shop. And some areas to stop for refreshments.
Hit the Tower early!
Barry_T, Apr 2024
Our meet/greet with the Yeoman Warder was very special. He took the time to highlight several Tower unique features. Our guide was friendly and knowledgable.
Worth it
Wendy_C, Apr 2024
Mark was a great guide. Loved the VIP access and the private meeting with the Beefeater. The Yeoman Warder that we met (Wayne) was a delight and made the trip.
Worth every penny!
Lucy_F, Apr 2024
Mark was a great guide. Fun and knowledgeable. Our Beefeater was fantastic. I would have like the tour much better if we could have spent more time with him
Glad I came
Stacie_S, Apr 2024
Mark was an entertaining and lively host that was full of so many interesting stories. It was a great tour even in the cold rain!
