  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Will was an incredible tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable of the sites and their history… while also throwing in a bit of humor. He made the experience so much fun even though we had very unpleasant and wet weather. I walked away gaining so much more knowledge of the history. We were even lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Queen Camilla while outside the palace thanks to Will’s good ear for the whistles. I also appreciated that it was a small group so it made the tour much more private. All in all an amazing experience!! Thanks for everything, Will.

    There were so many sights to visit and tours to take you there, but my teenage daughters and I chose this walking tour and couldn't have been happier! Nathaniel was our guide and he was so kind, approachable and extremely knowledgeable!! We learned so much history and fun facts as well. This was a walking tour and you did not go into any of the sights, but Nathaniel's all encompassing history made you feel as if you were inside and experiencing the venue! Great experience...and 21,000 steps later, we highly recommend it!

    It was a really nice trip in February 2024. The minibus was nice and comfortable and our guide Francis was great: an excellent mix of pleasant humor, great tips and information, conversation and silence at the right time (his playlist was very nice as well). The places were what we had expected only slightly busier; the architecture, the atmosphere and luckily the weather did not disappoint.

    Excellent tour. We were in a small group (8 people) and had exclusive access to the Crown Jewels and the key ceremony before the tower was open to the public.

    Damiano was our guide and he was very knowledgeable. He was great about taking us to see the most important things (e.g. the Elgin marbles) and telling us their stories.

    It seemed short, because there’s so much to see, so clearly we didn’t see everything. We had the feeling that we could take the same tour several times with Damiano, and we’d see different things each time. He would not have run out of things to tell us.

    Expensive, but recommended.

    Julie was very knowledgeable and patient with our family which includes a disabled person. Very friendly and full of backstory for the tower itself and the various museums within

    We had a wonderful 4 hour dive into the history of England with our guide Ray. He was a font of knowledge about the Monarchy, the buildings, the bridges, Twinings, and, of course, The Ministry of Magic! We could not possibly have seen all of the sites we visited without this remarkable tour and Ray's indepth knowledge of each site brought it to life. Thanks Ray! And thanks to Angela for your quick responses to our questions and requests. Kind Regards, Steve and Sheri

    My husband and I booked this tour to be able to cover a lot of ground in one morning in London. We definitely accomplished this goal, and we could not have asked for a better tour guide than Marc. He was fantastic, and had the answers to every one of our questions. If you read this, thank you Marc, from your San Diego tourists!

    We covered a lot of history in one tour. The Thames boat ride was a cool way to get around town. I wouldn’t have thought to use Uber Boat prior to this, but we may continue using it the rest of our trip, because it was so convenient to get us from the Tower to Westminster.

    Marc also gave us some ideas for restaurant recs in the area for the rest of our trip, which was very helpful. Even though we went on a rainy day without a changing of the guard, we were very happy with the tour.

    My friend Val and I went on a small bus day trip from London to the Cotswolds. Our driver/tour guide was extremely entertaining with a plethora of historical facts, impersonations, jokes and kept the driving time of 1 and 45 minutes casual and fun filled. He was as enchanting and charming as the towns we visited…Buford, Bibury, Burton on the water and Arlington row. David T is surely an asset to GoTours! If you go with Go tours ask for David T and you will have a great trip!
