Our guid Mehru was the best guide - she was such a wealth of knowledge and catered the tour to both of our kids (10 & 8) and the adults as well. She was so friendly & kind and we couldn’t recommend this tour more to anyone! The perfect way to spend your time and learn a lot about the history of the tower and english royals.

Lucy texted us the night before to answer any questions we had. She had a tough audience with my shy 7.5 year old twin boys, however she did a brilliant job of keeping both the kids and us (mom and dad) thoroughly engaged and entertained. The boys were talking about their Tower of London trip non stop. Lucy got them excited and told great stories for them which we were able to learn more about after we got home and investigated even more. We saw what we needed to and for our family this would’ve been difficult to do on our own. For example, she went into detail about the Crown Jewels as we were waiting in line so when we went inside we really knew and understood what we were looking at. The kids were super excited to see them when they otherwise may not have been. I highly recommend.

Mehru really connected with our kids — ages 7 and 11 — and turned the Tower into a place they could imagine people living in. She also has a wonderful way of delivering complex history understandably. We loved our tour and want Mehru to come with us to show us everywhere else in Europe.

Lucy was our family tour guide for The Tower of London and she was fantastic! She was so knowledgeable and made the entire 3 hours interesting for all ages (7 year old, 14 year old and 2 adults). I highly recommend the tour and Lucy as your guide! It was truly the highlight of our trip!

Hamish was so great! He was funny and knowledgeable and kept our 6 and 9 year old engaged. They said it was one of the best parts of the trip. He even helped us find a taxi when it was over.

Our guide Lucy was fantastic! Extremely knowledge, friendly, ready with an exciting story and bits of history. Also very flexible as we were freezing we went into the cafe to warm up and she continued the history lesson from there.

An excellent tour. Very informative and great storytelling by our guide Aaron. My 10 year old daughter was fascinated by the history and the bling!

We could not have been more impressed with our tour guide, Mehru. When she is not guiding tours, she is a regular member of the staff at the Tower of London so her knowledge is top-notch. That alone would have made this a great tour. On top of that, however, she was so wonderful with my children (ages eight and 10). She never failed to find the sweet spot in the information she delivered to keep me and both of my sons interested the entire time. She’s easily the best tour guide we have ever had, and we have been on many, many tours!
