  • Rating: 5 “Fantastic”

    Reviewed by Imran from London, United Kingdom on September 28th, 2014 Excellent

  • Rating: 5 “Once in a Lifetime Experience”

    Reviewed by John from Severn, United States on September 26th, 2014 After seeing scenes of Buckingham Palace over the years on television or movies, it was wonderful to see it in person - and on the inside. The directions were easy as to where to turn in the special voucher for a ticket, and then they let us in a little early. (Make sure you go to the bathroom before you enter because there are none until you get to the end!) You get headphones and get commentary along the way, which is very helpful and informative. The portrait hall was amazing. When you arrive at the end of the tour, you are on the grounds in the backyard. We were confused about how to leave the tour. There were no directions. You have to walk down a long path (beautiful scenery along the way) that takes you far away from where you entered the palace. That was confusing. Along the way you can stop for tea and scones (or other treats) and a trip to their gift shop.

    Reviewed by Andrea from Malvern, United States on August 26th, 2014 This was very easy and very smooth. Highly recommend to make it easy for you especially if you are traveling with children.

  • Rating: 4 “A very enjoyable your. Well organised & fun.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Birmingham, United Kingdom on August 14th, 2014 I went with my 8 year old daughter who thoroughly enjoyed this trip. She particularly liked the interactive multi media kids' guide which offers a lot of interesting facts and stories about the palace.

  • Rating: 4 “Very good trip, well organised too, so no problems picking up tickets.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Burbage, United Kingdom on October 3rd, 2013 Really enjoyed our trip to the Palace and had no problems at all collecting the tickets on arrival.
    A little disappointed though to find we could have purchased our tickets direct and got a twelve month pass for the same price to visit Royal sites at no extra cost !

  • Rating: 5 “Quite superb in all respects.”

    Reviewed by James from Alton, United Kingdom on September 19th, 2013 The organisation was efficient despite the torrential rain. A pleasure to be able to stroll through the state rooms at ones own pace (with the aid of a very good audio device)
    Two hours of grandeur and opulence but it is our palace after all , and what we expect. The jubilee regalia was most interesting and well worth seeing. All in all a great day out.

  • Rating: 4 “Actual tour of Buckingham palace was great.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Royal Wootton Bassett, United Kingdom on September 17th, 2013 Picking up the tickets was a bit of a run around as you have to go to one place then actually queue up again at the palace to get the tickets, think the voucher should be sent to you, then you are able to go straight to the ticket office at Buckingham palace.

  • Rating: 5 “excellent !”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Tyldesley, United Kingdom on September 8th, 2013 Have wanted to go to Buckingham Palace for a few years and am happy to say the visit was more than I expected. The state rooms were beautiful and very stately but also had quite a homely feel.

  • Rating: 5 “an excellent tour”

    Reviewed by John from Warminster, United Kingdom on August 31st, 2013 well run efficient and enjoyable . would recommend this to anyone.

  • Rating: 5 “Absolutely stunning tour of Buckingham Palace!”

    Reviewed by Joel from Woodland, United States on August 20th, 2013 All aspects of this tour were phenomenal. The audio guide, the wardens, the displays. The 60 year anniversary displays of the Coronation were stunning! This is not to be missed. Ordering and check in were much easier than I thought they would be. Probably the highlight of my whole trip.

  • Rating: 5 “Tickets left at the groups counter, went great!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Versmold, Germany on October 13th, 2011 Would do it again, it goes quickly. The tickets were left at the groups counter. Once we'd picked them up we could go straight to the entrance, where there was a bit of a wait, as there were security checks like at an airport.
    After about 10 mins we got into Buckingham Palace and got a fantastic tour with the free audio guides. Really successful overall.

  • Rating: 4 “Visiting the monarch”

    Reviewed by Angela from Nuernberg, Germany on October 13th, 2011 A must for anyone holidaying in London.

  • Rating: 5 “Easy and efficient tour booking”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from San Francisco, United States on September 30th, 2011 Buying the Encore voucher ahead of time helped us save time to do more sightseeing vs. having to wait in line at the palace for a ticket. Seamless process..thanks!

  • Rating: 4 “Very well organised and pleasure to see”

    Reviewed by Omar from Dubai, UAE on September 4th, 2011 I brought my children (12 & 9 years) to see the Palace where the queen lives. It was not overwhelming for them but a pleasure. Will definitely recommend and funnily enough, not many Britishers here in Dubai are aware that one can visit Buckingham Palace in August.

  • Rating: 4 “State Rooms sind sehenswert - mit den Tickets hat alles geklappt! :-)”

    Reviewed by Tanja from Hildesheim, Germany on September 20th, 2014 Die Tickets liessen sich ohne Probleme eintauschen und wenn sich die Gelegenheit ergibt sollte man sich die State Rooms auf jeden Fall ansehen. Auch wenn das nur ein kleiner Teil vom Buckingham Palace ist, aber es ist fantastisch! Alleine zu wissen das diese Räume für Bankette, Treffen mit anderen Staatsoberhäuptern, etc. genutzt werden ist unglaublich! Man muss das mit eigenen Augen gesehen haben!

  • Rating: 4 “hat alles sehr gut geklappt”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Halle/Saale, Germany on September 20th, 2014 Tausch des Voucher war problemlos. Durch den kostenlosen Audio-Guide ist ein individueller Rundgang möglich, was sehr gut ist, weil man nicht an eine Gruppe gebunden ist.

  • Rating: 5 “Reibungsloser Ablauf beim Vouchereintausch”

    Reviewed by Manfred from Wesel, Germany on September 17th, 2014 Alles bestens!

  • Rating: 4 “Alles einfach und ohne Komplikationen”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Deuerling-Hillohe, Germany on September 15th, 2014 Das mit den Tickets hat gut funktioniert
    Nur das wir zum Seiteneingang gehen mussten, wurde leider nicht mitgeteilt. Bei uns stand zum Haupteingang, aber dort ist kein Einlass.
    Man muss , wen man vor dem Schloss steht nach links gehen zur Seite.
    Sonst war alles ganz toll.
    Villeicht auch den Hinweis geben, dass man keine Metallgeräte, Essen , Getränke ect. Mitnehmen darf.
    Kann man aber vor Ort abgeben und bekommtes am Schluss der Führung wieder. Der Audio-guide war super!
    Der Service ist toll

  • Rating: 3 “Etwas enttäuscht”

    Reviewed by Julia from Viernheim, Germany on August 30th, 2014 Also zunächst mal, hat es nicht mit unserem Voucher geklappt, habe diesem nachtelefonieren müssen, außerdem waren trotz £-Kurs, die karten wesentlich günstiger als hier! (6euro ca.), es kam hinzu, dass die Kassiererin erst lam nichts im dem Format unseres Vouchers anfangen konnte. Und die Führung an sich war viel zu voll, man wurde einfach durchgeschoben, weshalb die hier veranschlagten 2-3 Stunden, in schon weniger als einer Stunde vorbei waren. Es war trotzdem mal interessant zu sehen, aber ich wurde es nicht nochmal machen und auch nicht weitempfehlen

  • Rating: 5 “Grandioser Einblick in einen bewohnten Palast.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Erkrath, Germany on August 28th, 2014 Ich bin "Schlösser und Burgen- Sammler" und habe mich im Vorfeld schon sehr auf den Buckingham Palace gefreut. Mit den Vorab-Tickets lief alles problemlos ab. Die Sicherheitskontrollen hielten auf, sind aber nunmal notwendig. Mit dem Audioguide hatte jeder seinen eigenen individuellen Führer und konnte in seinem Tempo durch die Staatsräume ziehen, was ich als sehr angenehm empfunden habe. Der Gärten, das Cafe und der Shop waren ein angenehmer Ausklang. Ich habe mich vier Stunden im Palast aufgehalten. Ich kann ein Besuch nur empfehlen!!!

  • Rating: 5 “Wow”

    Reviewed by Michaela from Graz, Austria on August 28th, 2014 Es ist wirklich sehenswert

  • Rating: 4 “prima Ausflug mit deutschen Audiguide”

    Reviewed by Ines from Dresden, Germany on August 27th, 2014 Leider war der Ticketservice schlecht, auf dem letzten erhaltenen E-Ticket vor der Abreise waren zwei verschiedene Abholstandorte für das Originalticket vermerkt und der Straßenname der Ticketstelle auch noch falsch. während des Londonaufenthaltes kam dann noch eine Mail, die dann nur noch einen Abholstandorte enthielt, aber den falschen Voucher. das Ticket kann unmittelbar vor dem BuckinghamPalace eingetauscht werden, zur Einlasszeit muss man sich danach an der langen Eintrittsschlange anstellen. Toiletten gibt es erst am Ende des Rundganges.
