“The Shakespeare Theater is worth visiting.”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from glewitz, Germany on June 9th, 2012 More attention should be drawn to the exhibit before the tour, so that you can schedule time in for it. All of the employees are very friendly, speak clearly and relate information in an interesting way.
“A fantastic, exhilarating and exciting historical place to visit.”
Reviewed by Winsome from Hoddesdon, United Kingdom on June 5th, 2012 The Globe was an awsome place to visit regardless of wheather or not you like Shakespeare. The guided tour was fabulous, she was very knowledgeable and funny. It was also good to see so many children/ school groups enjoying the tour and exhibition.
The only down side is - it is a very expensive place to shop or buy lunch, and this was also the case at Kensington Palace. I suppose its the price you pay for spending a day in London.
“A very interesting and informative tour and the guide was really good.”

Reviewed by Laura from Dorchester, United Kingdom on March 23rd, 2012 A very good tour of the theatre, our guide was very knowledgable. The exhibition was ok, would've prefered more information on Shakespeare
“fun and informative tour”
Reviewed by Ronita from Maryland Hts, United States on August 29th, 2011 Our tour guide was just adorable. We learned so many little tidbits as we walked around the theatre. She knew her stuff and I left knowing so much more about the theatre and people of Shakesphere's time. The museum is nice but it is even nicer to get outside into the actual theatre. The day we visited was perfect 70 degree weather with the sun shining. I was sorry we didn't have enough advance time to book a play there. I imagine the experience is beyond fun. Maybe next trip.
