This tour was fantastic and well worth it. Like all tours, the guide can make or break, and David was remarkable. From the Magna Carta to today he made history and procedure very interesting.

Melissa, our guide, was amazingly engaging and informative and has really inspired me to continue to learn more about British politics and our monarchy. At no point did I feel unengaged or disappointed with the tour and the factual information we were given and the amazing places we were guided through! Our only disappointment was not being able to take photographs in order to capture this memorable experience!

I really enjoyed an opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament. It is always good to see something in person that you only see on TV. It is unfortunate that photos are not allowed during the vast majority of this tour. I did find some photos on line to remind me of what I saw.
