    Worthwhile of time and cost!
    The tour was just as advertised: informative and entertaining. The guide, Tim C., was full of information and humor. I really enjoyed the tour from the beginning to the end. It could have been better if: 1. It were not so cold and damp, and 2. There were some places to sit down to rest once in a while, but of course, those were not under the tour's control!

    Knowledge of the British Aristocracy
    Well planned and carefully managed by Adrian. For foreigners, a better historical framework of the British aristocracy would be important.

    BORING AND COMPLETE RIP OFF
    This was DREADFUL - we went with 3 children aged 8,10, 11 and it was so boring that we left halfway through. I simply do not believe the review I read that stated how much children had enjoyed it. It was a complete rip off - a boring script with irrelevant details.

    Excellent walking tour of London.
    The walk we did through London lead by Cleo was excellent. Cleo’s knowledge & passion for history & the way she imparted her knowledge was very entertaining. Would highly recommend this walking tour especially if you are lucky enough to have Cleo as your guide.

    Thanks Cleo
    Our guide Cleo was chilled, helpful and very informative. We did the Churchill War rooms as well and we were surprised how quickly the time went by. This tour was pricier than some others but well worth it. Cleo was great.

    London city walking tour
    Brandon was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic to get everyone to enjoy his walking tour. He shared London attractions in a fun and interesting approach. The 4-hr walk covered much ground and enabled me and my spouse to have a better appreciation and understanding of London history, attractions and facts. He was very jovial, friendly and chatted with participants to understand the country they came from. He also shared which London musicals and shows are worth watching. Well done Brandon B! Lui

    Entertaining walking tour
    The walking tour was educational, interesting and enjoyable. The stories were entertaining and the pace was good. I especially enjoyed the changing of the guard which can only be seen on the 10am tour.

    Greta insight into London’s history!
    The tour was excellent and really gave us a nice peek into London’s historical buildings and the Monarch history. Cleo was incredibly knowledgeable and gave us recommendations for the area as well. Presentation was perfect and well timed.

My husband and I did this tour today, and we had a wonderful time! Our guide, Christopher, was very knowledgeable and witty, and he provided tons of both traditional and modern British history, with many good stories and funny tidbits embedded throughout. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting London and wishes to know a more about the history of Westminster. Thank you Christopher for an enjoyable day and for allowing us to get the best views for the traditional changing of the guard! The Westminster Abbey add-on at the end of the tour was well worth it.

My mother and I came from the United States to celebrate her birthday and this tour was disappointing in the end. We get to the location to meet the tour guide and the line had 30+ people trying to check in with one person for several different tours. Once we finally got in our groups, our tour guide John started off great with speaking to us about the history around Buckingham Palace before we head to Westminster Abbey. Once we stopped for a rest break, the tour guide told us to wait across the street for him so we could watch the guards walk by and wait for the other group members to use the bathroom or buy a snack. Our tour guide disappeared and left us. We walked around the specific area of the park for 15 minutes trying to find him and he, and our group, weren't anywhere in sight. We were extremely upset considering we aren't from here and didn't know where to go. Luckily, we had our tickets so we could go to Westminster ourselves. However, as a tour guide it's your job to make sure the group stays together and not leave anyone behind. Extremely disappointed with how it ended up.

My wife, daughter and I had an absolutely outstanding time on this tour of Westminster. Our tour guide Christopher was most insightful in sharing his knowledge of the places we visited, and pegged the best times to see the Changing of the Guards. The pace was perfect. We particularly appreciated Christopher’s enthusiasm and rich sense of humour which presented a wonderful vibrance, captivating the attention of all those on the tour.

The tour was exceptional, and Jason was the highlight. The tour makes it exceptionally easy to meet the morning of and it just gets better from there. Jason led us on a wonderful historical journey, seeing the changing of the guard (perfectly positioned) and then the sights of Big Ben, parliament and the Westminster area, before ending at the Abbey. It was perfect and we would not change a thing. Highly recommend the tour and Jason!!

We did this tour after booking in Australia for a small group 5-10 persons, there was 23 which was disappointing however our guide Christopher made up for the minor issue. He was very informative and was the highlight of the tour, the sights he presented with interesting details and overall made our experience very enjoyable. Advice to future travelers, beware the queue for Westminster Hall can be very long so bring your queue patience along.

Christopher of Top Sights Tours made this fun, memorable, and very informative. We started at The Ritz and worked our way down through Royal Parks, past Buckingham, into St. James and eventually ending at Westminster Abbey.

The tour guide really makes these experiences: imagine someone possessing the quick wit of Ricky Gervais giving you both deep history and dishing recent gossip an anything remotely related to the royals and Londoner culture, and you have Christopher. Great experience for adults and children.

I unfortunately was not able to make my tour because the traffic from our hotel took us over 1 hour to arrive, with street closures along the way so plan accordingly. Once I arrived at the meet up location, there was another couple who was there and did not make the tour either. They were in constant communication with the company via email about where to possibly meet up with the group, however, they were not able to assist us because they reported that the tour itinerary changes and never follows the same route. So I’d say that was definitely the downside because we really wanted to join the group. Fortunately, when I emailed them for our vouchers for the tickets to the Westminster Abbey, they did send them to us and we were able to go on our own. I recognize we were the late ones but I would’ve appreciated for them to let us know where they were to join the group. Anyway, in attempting to look for the group we saw pretty much everything that was on the schedule so do with that information what you want.

Actually the tour was in Jan of 2023, but still we want to write the evaluation now, as it was so good, the tour guide was vert helpful, funny, and wonderful!
We started at Green Park, then to the Queen Victoria Memorial, Buckingham Palace, Saint James Park, City of Wesminster, Charing Cross, Trafalgar Square, and lastly is the Westminster Abbey, since inside the tour we received 2 tickets for this, and we visited the Westminster Abbey by ourselves!
It was a long day walking that day, but we could tour around many nice main area in London, and could also see the Big Ben Tower… with the final was Westminster Abbey, so this is the tour we really recommend to other people!
Thank you for the nice tour…

Couldn't have asked for a better tourguide than Chris, who clearly enjoys his task of sharing his immense wealth of historical, useful, and frequently amusing facts about Westminster and beyond. He knew when to be at the right place at the right time, for example for the Buckingham Palace changing of the guards. The hours flew by so the next day I went back to further explore some of Chris's recommendations for food (such as the fish and chips as well as the mulled cider at Burrough Market) and places to visit (Churchill's War Rooms and the Clink Prison for example). All were spot-on recommendations. It was also great to be able to use my Westminster Abbey ticket the following day in order to have more time there than I otherwise would have had ample time for on the original issue date. This was the perfect guided tour for me.

Went with my cousin. We both so enjoyed Mark, our guide, who so reminded us of our uncle in his depth of knowledge, enthusiasm for what we were seeing and dry sense of humor. The 3 hours absolutely flew by.

I would definitely recommend this tour. The pacing was perfect in that things moved along without ever feeling rushed. I think Mark has some drama experience. He really knows how to tell a story!
