What a wonderful tour. Our guide (?David - apologists if I got the name wrong but he’s a retired policeman) was extremely knowledgeable and had many great stories to tell. He was especially patient as several of us were a bit late joining the tour. He made the tour fun. Buckingham Palace was amazing. I liked the self directed tour with the audio and appreciated that I could go at my own pace. So glad I chose the tour even though the weather meant the changing of the guards was cancelled due to rain. But that can’t be helped.

I liked the fast track entrance to inside Buckingham Palace, but I didn’t feel I needed to pay for the Changing of the Guard. I could have seen that by myself.
