Our guide Joanne was wonderful! She was very sweet to my girls, shared fun stories and brought us to areas I never knew about like the horses.

We were disappointed as we did not get to see the actual changing of the guards. We only saw the band and we would have liked to see more of this ceremony next to Buckingham Palace.

Response from Richard
Hi Mudhuri Firstly thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and I apologise if you were disappointed that you didn’t feel you saw enough of the guards at Buckingham Palace. However the ceremony is not confined to just Buckingham Palace and as you probably saw it’s a very popular event and often very busy. In over 20 years experience of running similar tours we have adjusted the route to where we think is the best places to get as close to both sets of guards and the Horseguards as possible without having to arrive very early and with the smallest amount of crowds and obstructions blocking any views. We feel like we have achieved this objective, the tour description does state that the tour takes you away from the crowds to the lesser known spots, which is still part of the ceremony. However it doesn’t actually make it clear that the tour doesn’t include any part of the ceremony at Buckingham Palace itself. So I apologise that this is not made clearer beforehand Thank you for taking the tour today andI appreciate your feedback Richard

We had great views of the old guards getting off duty. We also saw horse guards who we probably practicing for colours of the troops.
