What People Are Saying About Westminster Abbey
Me and my 7-year old son enjoyed Julias tour very much. I actually liked it a lot better then most tours for adults. Lots of interesting and detailed facts, that Anton is still talking about, now we are back in Berlin.
We very much enjoyed the Tour - despite the frost! The walk by itself is a nice tour past some of Londons sights. The haunted places and it's stories are very interesting and inspire to find out more. Our guide was entertaining and attentive, he made the walk fun!
Be prepared to wrap up very warmly - it was a cold night but added to the overall spookiness of walking in the parks and around the city. Well worth the ticket price to have the expertise of Tom as our guide - he kept things moving but took time to give detailed explanations.
Our guide was awesome! And he made sure didn't let list in the Underground either. Showed us the Muggle equivalents to the Magical world. He really got us engaged in exploring London! Our family had a a fun time and met alto of neat folks from around the world too. Get ready to do a whole lot of walking!
Tom was a brilliant guide & made the tour come alive. He knew all the facts & was very confident in guiding us around London. I would particularly recommend this tour if you wanted to see London while during the tour.
