Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Excellent tour, took two teenagers and the guide (Steve) kept them engraved all day. He was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining.

    The jewels in the jubilee exhibition were stunning
    The paintings in the gallery superb
    Balcony photo opportunity at the end certainly a memory to keep

    I took this tour recently with my husband and two teenagers. I would highly recommend. Our guide, Peter, and driver Jermaine (dubbed 'The Peter and Jermaine Show') were excellent - fun and entertaining, full of information and history, and very accommodating. My older one said they were the best guides we'd ever had! Peter actually took the time at the end of the tour to make sure each group understood how they would find transport back to their hotels from the dropoff point, and recommended other things to see and do during the rest of our time in England, which I thought was a nice touch.

    Communication from Premium Tours was good. Note that there is a request to re-confirm 48 hours prior to the tour (we did it 24 hrs and it was no problem). At that time Premium told us what gate to go to at Victoria Coach station, which was very helpful as the station is a very busy place.

    The tour itself covers a lot of ground, but if you haven't seen these sites before, you will get a great intro. I feel that the expectations on the tour itinerary (roughly 1.5 hours at each location) are set very well in the online description, and also by the guide at the start of the tour. The only deviation I noted is we did not drive by the Royal Crescent in Bath, but we had time to walk up there and see it ourselves, which was more interesting anyways. I would highly recommend purchasing any optional entry tickets for the sites (unless you've seen them before), as ticket lines are long and entering as a tour group makes things easy. Note however, that there is not much time built in for eating. We grabbed something quick in Windsor and again some take-away in Bath (based on recommendations from the guide). That worked out well, as it allowed us to get back to London a little sooner than the similar tour with the pub lunch.

    There are a lot of day tour companies in London to sort through, some of which are 'middle agents'. Purchasing from Premium Tours appears to be a direct line - their busses were branded with the company name. I was impressed with how they operated, and highly recommend.

    This was incredible. It is done extremely well. There are lots of things to look at ,read about and try out.
    You wait in a room prior to going into the grand Hall, there is a bit of backstory talking which younger children aren't interested in. But after that it was v good.

    Prior to coming I paid for the audio tour guide packs for our family. Unless you are fascinated about the details of making a movie etc then you don't need this. My children really like Harry Potter but weren't at all interested in their audio tour and gave up quite quickly. There were others, mostly young adults who were using theirs.

    For a family day out you don't need them.

    The staff were helpful and polite.
    The shop is quite overwhelming at the end, so be warned those with children, it is a large area and full of items they will 'need'. The queue in the shop to pay took a long time but it was v busy.

    The buses to and from Watford Junction worked extremely well and were on time, no waiting and the driver polite.

    This was a great trip overall.

    The tour itself was great. But the bus station needs to come up with a better idea. They had many different tours going from the same gate, which caused confusion and chaos.

    Our guide, Karen, and our driver Nono (not sure of the spelling of his name, I'm sorry!) did a fantastic job. They were so accommodating and compassionate and the trip was really fun. We did Oxford, Bampton (village), and Highclere Castle. Karen was so witty and charming and genuinely seemed to love checking in with us and the other passengers. Nono was also very witty and fun. All in all, a great trip that I would heartily recommend.

    A relaxing, information overview of the city makes this a worthy tour. The added short cruise on the Thames River made this even more appealing. My family and I sat up top and enjoyed the lovely summer afternoon, while our driver pointed out many of the great sights. My one caution is to avoid booking this or any bus tour on the day of arrival after flying twelve hours. I have to admit to my wife and I both nodding off several times.

    This guided tour made the whole process very easy, starting with the online booking, then meeting Grace at the train station, who took us via train and bus to the Wizarding World and had lots of info to share, and our private, personalized tour with Kevin M., who gave us a the behind the scenes tour of the movie magic. Observing the other visitors, we felt really fortunate to have the guidance and insight a professional guide provided. Kevin M. had a deep knowledge of the movies and production details, and found details of interest for our tween boy and teen girl. The City Wonders tour guide was able to enter the sets to point details out to us, and other visitors would try to listen in to the presentations.

    Note that once you arrive at the Wizarding World, the tour takes about 3 hours, with a cafe break in the middle. Because this is focused on the making of the movies, it is still fresh and different if you have been to the Universal HP experiences. The gift shop is also tremendous.

    To be clear, our review of the day itself is 4/5; however, our review of our tour guide (Zozo) and quality of the tour is 5/5!!!

    Zozo was dynamic right from the beginning! He was very knowledgeable, but balanced when and what to share instead of overpowering. The chemistry he creates with his tours makes the day fabulous while knowing he is absolutely the one in control. Our family lost our camera along the way and he was very helpful in organizing another tour guide to pick it up and return it to London so we could pick it up the next morning! Thanks Zozo!

    Note: we knew the tour day was going to be long, but the travel through the Cotswolds puts you quite late into Stratford cutting that experience too short (and therefore lacklustre). Still very grateful we checked off so many iconic sights in one day!

    Rob explained everything before we arrived at the Tower of London beautifully, so it was great when we met our beefeater host, who was quite friendly and then we saw the ceremony of the keys. The White tower was great fun for the whole family
