This tour was the best thing that could have happened to us. A true English gentleman showed us around the building with great skill. His clear pronunciation and pleasant way of conveying many interesting stories made the time pass too quickly. This tour is a must for any Royall Albert Hall fan. A big compliment to the nice guide!

We had looked at something different to do while visiting London and decided to take this tour. It was fun and informative and with the bonus of an orchestra rehearsing we experienced what it would be like during a performance. Well worth the cost of the ticket and very enjoyable way of spending sone time. Our tour guide was Iran who was excellent. She was informative and fun and full of interesting facts about the history of the hall. She made the tour worth the money.

The tour of the Royal Albert Hall was an unforgettable experience. Very educational, it was great to learn more about the historic building. Being in the empty hall made you appreciate the set-up and incredible acoustics. I now want to attend a performance to see what the Royal Albert Hall is like in action! My only complaint was the toilets! Located beside the cafe, the laboratories were small, with no hooks for our heavy winter coats, and not very clean.
