    This was a great tour. Our guide was very informative and provided great history and also great anecdotes on that history. It was great to get into areas of the Abbey that the general public could not.

    Our guide, Nick, was great — he did a nice job of highlighting the history of the Abbey, and was a great storyteller. Access to Parliament was fantastic. I highly recommend this tour,

    We had an excellent tour guide Nick. The tour was very informative and Nick was always ready to answer any questions.

    We, as well as everybody on our tour, expected to have a 3.5 hour tour of both Westminster Abbey and a walking tour around Parliament, the majority of this tour being within the Abbey.This is what was described on the website, but not what was delivered because the Abbey had a function and was not allowing group tours our day. Furthermore, because we did not receive any tour of the Westminster Abbey, we had to pay for this on our own, in addition to what we paid for the Viator/Amigo tour. We got 75 minutes worth of an advertised 3.5 hour guided tour, walking outside of parliament. Both Viator and Amigo (the contracted tour company) initially refused to provide any refund. Eventually, a 20% refund was provided, which barely covered 1 admission ticket to Westminster Abbey. Giving 2 stars because Marian, the tour guide was great (and was just as surprised as all of those on the tour that no groups were allowed in Westminster Abbey that day.)

    Excellent tour of Westminster Abbey, the tour guide offered an extensive background and history of the Abbey. Unfortunately, the House of Parliament was closed. However, I believe doing both tours would have been a bit much for my group.

    Enjoyed the tour inside the Abbey. A lot to see and learn. Very good and experienced tour guide. Only a very brief explanation of the Houses of Parliament.

    You are required to meet at Abbey Store that does not open until 9:30. Rained all morning and got soaked. By the time we got into the Abbey, it was very crowded and groups were muddled in the church and given much too long narration. It took so long that I skipped out on the Parliament tour. It was a bit disappointing. The tour guide was impressed with her own knowledge and did not read her audience who were bored and impatient

    Very informative. Mark, our guide, was knowledgeable, easy to understand and did a great job. I can recommend this tour to anyone wishing to see and know more about Westminster Abbey.

    We had a great tour. Marian was friendly and informative. She had a nice loud voice and was always conscious to have everyone come close so we could hear.

  • 03-Jul-2019

    Our guide, Marion, did an excellent job providing history and background on the Abbey. She expertly guided us from one point of interest to the next. She was also happy to answer questions on other points of interest and even directions. The audio tour of Parliament provided as little or much info as you want.
