Guests Love Our Tours
London Tailored Tours organized a tailored tour for the 3 of us with the focus in both Queens (the Queen and the Band Queen). Our guide was Glenn, a cool guy, musician, boxing fan, multi-talented and very accommodating guide. He inserted some quiz questions during the 3 hours walking tour, because he figured that our 11 year old Izzy likes making quiz. He asked questions related to the locations we visited. GREAT! We saw all the key locations of the Queen and then visited some spots that are connected to the Band Queen. We finished at a pub near Trident studio, where Queen used to have some pints while recording Bohemian Rhapsody.
I did not feel like I was on a tour but rather being shown around town by a long lost friend. Definitely worth every pound.
