This is an OK tour but I think you could do it on your own and be just as happy or happier. The guide was nice but so soft spoken and would turn her head when she talked so we heard only about 10 of what she said. Having a tour didn't get us fast tracked unto the Palace at all - we waited in line with everyone else - and once in the three rooms that they have opened up to view, the guide left us so we were on our own to read placards and signs to try to figure out what each room was all about. The Diana Dresses area was nice to see as were the gardens. I would not recommend the Orangery at all unless you go separate from the tour. When we came in to the restaurant, we saw scrumptious High Tea platters on other peoples tables and were excited for ours. Well, on the tour, you get a dumbed down version of this - nothing compared to what others were having that had booked their own reservation. The guide didn't stay with us during this part it was the end of the tour so I understand that she didn't want to sit around and watch us drink tea but there was no recourse of having someone to complain to about how disappointing the tea service was. If you are at all good with booking your own things - do that and skip this tour.

My sister and I found our tour guide 'Jenna' very engaging and enthusiastic with her history knowledge. We were disappointed we could only view Diana's garden from the railings and were not allowed in to walk about and enjoy the plants and flowers up close. The tea itself was lovely and well presented with a friendly waiter by the name of Vincenzo. One little tip, don't be afraid to ask for more tea! We weren't told we could have more tea and were a little nervous to ask. As to the palace itself, it's a shame that many of the rooms have to be kept quite dark and on a warm day we did find it quite uncomfortable at times, but we could understand the reasons why, worth a visit.

Due to the Royal Family's schedule, our tour had to be moved to an earlier time but everything was handled professionally and smoothly. Our tour guide was a very knowledgable and delightful young lady from Australia so sorry that I don't recall her name. She was full of wonderful details regarding the palace and its history and made the tour a pure delight.

April was a wonderful guide, very well informed and considerate to our large group. Very interesting and good paced tour. Afternoon tea in the Organery Room was amazing. All in beautiful surroundings. This was our last tour in London before flying home and was a wonderful way to finish our holiday.

Awesome tour! Our guide made all the difference by telling us all the stories and gossip of the Royal family present and past! The tour of the palace could have been done on your own, but the guide pointed out little things that we wouldn't have done or known. The tea in the Orangery was a great way to end the tour. Beautiful building and lovely tea and snacks no dress code. My 12 and 9 year old enjoyed it, but for my 7 and 5 year olds it was a little long.
