Well worth the money. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and super diligent in telling us all the details about the tower and the bridge. And it's super nice to get in before everyone else with the early access and have the rare opportunity to watch the gate-opening ceremony (pretty short). This was our second time visiting the tower and the bridge (our first time was a guided tour too). But the amount of information this tour guide provided us is 10x more, and above all, she was also super nice and thorough. The tower bridge was fun to walk on the glass floor and take pictures on both sides of Thames. All in all, a very good experience. I would have given this tour a 5-star rating, if the tour guide hadn't arrived 10mins late (we were quite confused as to what happened to our tour, until we made several calls and saw her arrive). I'd definitely recommend this tour and our tour guide (unfortunately I couldn't remember her name).

What an incredible experience with a guide. Would highly recommend especially early to watch the opening of the tower key ceremony. Our guide was excellent and explained all the history of the tower good & bad. To see the Crown Jewels in person and the ravens was awesome and all the stories of the White Tower. Definitely don’t miss this, was the highlight of our trip.

It was great to go on a small group early access tour. Our guide gave us a lot of history and insight before we entered so we know what we were looking at and important things to look for. He was also available throughout the self guided portion of the tour for questions. It was especially nice to see the Crown jewels without large crowds around. The tower bridge was wonderful. By the time we got there it was about 11:00 and many other visitors were entering but it was still good to get there earlier than we would have on our own and walk across the bridge. A definite must see! I highly recommend this to tour, well worth the money!
