Jeremy who was our tour guide was informative, engaging and funny. It’s true the there are places to see the changing of the guard that the average tourist wouldn’t know about.

I had read so many reviews about how great it is to pay for a tour to get a more up close and personal experience. Unfortunately we could not locate our group at the designated meeting point AND it was raining so they did not change the guards.
