Very long, detailed tour. It’s a 3 hour tour of extensive English history while standing on hard floors. We agreed we couldn’t absorb half the information. Would prefer a tour with less history. The Houses of Parliament tour just passed us off to use recorded guide.

Terrible rigid staff who are not interested in customer care

This is an awful tour operator- we had our train delayed and despite the fact that I tried calling texting and emailing for an hour and a half prior to our meeting time they did not return my calls or texts and refused to rebook my tour and refused to do any kind of effort to allow us to at least partially experience the tour we had paid for
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Dear Amig@ Bita_E Unfortunately, we could not reschedule or allow you to join the tour that has already started, out of respect for other clients, as this would lead to coordination with our guide and this would distract him. We know that the delay was not his fault, but neither was Amigo's, and expenses have already been made to secure his place and a pleasant experience. An apology for the inconvenience caused.

Should have been better

We started our tour of the abby by meeting in front of gift shop which was a good place to meet. Upon arriving my wife and I along with other families were advised that although the tour is called Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament Tour in London we apparently only chose the Westminster abby portion which I had actually chose both options. Our tickets stated that the tour was to be over at 13:00 hrs which meant that it was 4 hours which was both tours. The tour was supposed to start at 9:15 but we remained in front of the gift shop until 9:45 and then had to wait for the guide to get the tickets for us to go in which cut down n the tour because the guide and to move on with the other people to do the parliament tour. After starting the tour 45 mins late we were rushed when inside the abby. In the mean time the guide was knowledgeable however kept moving the tour along as quickly as she could because they had clearly started late. The guide didn’t provide any head sets so you had to move very close to hear her with all the other people inside. If I had my time back I would have paid the 25£ each for me and my wife and gained access the normal way which included audio head sets and you can take your time and actually hear and see all that should have been included in this tour. Needless to say this is thus far the only negative experience I’ve had using viator and it won’t keep me from using them as I have had tons of good tours that have exceeded our expectations in the past however this isn’t one of them. After emailing Amigo Tours there only response was “please take note that your booking is confirmed for only Westminster Abbey. Please recheck the inclusion of your tour”. I think the advertising of this tour is misleading and I would not recommend it however I do recommend going into the abby either with another group or on your own.

Very informative tour and guide was excellent. Being part of a tour group gained us quick entry. We would have overlooked or not understood a lot of the Abbey’s contents without a guide.

I enjoy studying the Plantagenets and the Tudors. It was so exciting to see the tombs of the royals and to hear about the lives of the monarchs. It was so interesting to see the Houses of Parliament and to hear how each house functions.

Won’t get to see parliament.
Chris_M
, Jul 2022
We signed up for tickets for both the Abbey and Parliament buildings. At the end of the Abbey tour we were told that we were not on the list for the Parliament tour, when we had absolutely paid for it. In addition, that part of the tour was only going to be walking around the outside of the building and not inside. The tour clearly states going inside. I am going to ask for a partial refund. Very disappointing.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Dear Amig@ Chris_M We have reviewed your case, within the contracted tour we have different modalities, one includes the tour in the abbey and the parliament. Another modality includes only the abbey and others only the parliament. Reviewing the service you hired, it included only the Abbey, you can verify the information in your voucher. We are sorry for the confusion and hope that in the future you will give us the confidence to serve you again. Dulce, Amigo Tours

Didn’t see parliament, misleading description
Mette_B

The guide was great, but we were looking forward to seing the parliament and Westminster. We spend almost 3 hours in the Church and 15 minutes sitting outside being told about Parliament. A Big disappoiment and must say that the description of this tour is not reflecting what happend.

Westminster Abbey Beautiful but tour was Unorganized with not Toilets available.
Scott_S
, Jul 2022
I was there promptly early although there was confusion on where to find the right group for tour. We were divided into 2 groups and there was difficulty in deciding who would go in what group. I needed to use toilet. and no chance of getting to one for at least 90 minutes. right off that ruined the tour. I was uncomfortable the entire time needing a toilet. That was unacceptable.

Westminster Abbey and Parliament Tours Well Done
Julie_B
, Jul 2022
The Westminster Abbey tour was led by a tour Guide. He provided many details about the Abbey and respectful of our time. He also provided an overview of Parliament in person, but this tour was an audio tour. At first we were disappointed, but the audio tour was well done. We enjoyed both tours, but the Parliament tour was our favorite

Jane was a great tour guide with some wonderful facts, a fun attitude, and a quick wit. Note most of the tour is not about parliament, but Westminster abbey is rich with history (far more than I would have guessed). Jane so kindly also let us know you could go in and watch parilement during the week without problem. Which was great.

The tour guide was great, but the tour only included Westminster Abbey. Very misleading and quite expensive compared to other tours. Definitely select another tour which includes both for the same price.

Tour title needs to be renamed!
Ruth_M
, Jun 2022
The tour inside Westminster Abbey was good, but the title of the program is VERay misleading. We thought we were having a tour inside parliament which is why we signed up and it’s really a go lol at it yourself from the outside. I would not have paid the money for this tour knowing that. The tour title needs to be renamed!

Beautiful Abbey and great tour by Richard
Carolien_R
, Jun 2022
The Abbey is beautiful and Richard is a great guide. You can walk through tge Abbey yourself and see the statues and memorials, but his explanations of how it all came about brings it to life. I learned a lot about history and Richard tells it in an engaging way. I'm very happy I took the guided tour.
