    Tower of London
    Stop: 60 minutes - Admission included
    Your tour will begin just in front of the main entrance, where you will be given a short introduction to the history of the Tower of London before being led in to meet the Beefeater dedicated to your small group. From stories of traitorous plots to tales of royal scandal, the guards of the Tower of London will bring this attraction to life before your eyes. Your small group will also enable you plenty of chances to ask questions and interact directly with the Beefeater as they lead you through this ancient fortress. After your tour, continue to discover the Tower at your leisure including a visit to the infamous Bloody Tower, a tour of the old Royal Mint, or a visit to the home of the stunning Crown Jewels. Because of our early morning start time, you will be among the first visitors into the Tower and will have the opportunity to explore without the usual large crowds. At times an important stronghold, a magnificent palace, and an intimidating prison; the Tower of London is a must-see attraction for those interested in British history. Don’t miss out on the opportunity for a guided tour with those most familiar with it – the Beefeaters.

This is the only way you should do a tour of the Tower of London. You go in early before it gets to crowded. The Beefeater we had was extremely fun, entertaining and knowledgeable. He gave us so many facts and he was willing to answer all of our questions. Never felt rushed.

Essentially, you enter the site at the time the gate opens. You are introduced to the Beefeater at the entrance. The Beefeater portion was joined by about 15 people who payed general admission to the site. No staff from City Wonders stays with you during that brief portion so

Response from CityWondersCS, Manager at Private Audience with Beefeater at The Tower of London
Responded 14 Aug 2019
Dear GeekDad Thanks for leaving a review on Trip Advisor. We are sorry for the tour didn't meet your expectation. The tour is specifically called "Tower of London and Private Audience with authentic Beefeater ", this is held by the Beefeater and not from City Wonders guide. However, City Wonders is aimed to organise the guided visit, from meeting and greetings the clients, escort the clients to the correct spot, offer Customer assistance when needed, and mostly to reserve the tickets for this option which can results very hard if you want to get on your own. The price paid is proportional to the service we offer, as you received the skip the line access, which can really make the difference. We appreciate the time taken to get in touch with us, and we hope we are able to take you on tour in the near future in any of the destinations where we operate. Kind regards Barbara City Wonders team

This experience went above and beyond my expectations. I don't know which was better, being able to enter the Castle with no crowds or having a small private tour by our own Beefeater. It ended up being just myself and one other couple and we were able to ask as many questions
