Simon was our great tour guide, he was very informative, and passionate about all the history he taught us about as we walked through kensington gardens. Most importantly he was very warm and welcoming wanting to learn about each of us on his tour as well. A great man overall making our first tour in london very special.

Very nice for a special occasion But you need £150.00 for a breakfast for Two people !!! The place is lovely but they do pull your pants down re the cost but you are in Harrods so it’s expected 👏👏

Great experience. Be careful of timing! It was a lovely afternoon tea, but it was rushed at the end. The meeting instructions were clear and they were very helpful and responsive when we had other complications with other parts of our trip! I would tell someone they definitely should book this for their own trip, but do not choose the 2:00pm seating (or whatever the latest time is.) Some people in our group were late which made our walk through the gardens late and made us late to tea. 2:00 was when we were supposed to start a tour of the gardens and our tea reservation was at 3pm. We did not get our tea service until closer to 3:20/3:30. Since they close at 4:00pm sharp in the Winter, they made us leave, and I felt like we were rushed through the whole tea service. Overall, very great tour and positive experience but I would watch out for timing. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the gardens and history of the area, as well as teaching us about the history and customs associated with tea service. She was so nice and everyone else in the group was great too!

Meeting Simon and the Palace Breakfast Tea was delicious. We missed the walking tour ( our fault) but Simon came to meet us at our table. We appreciate that he took the time to do so.

Had fun touring around the Gardens. Learned bits about the buildings, structures. The walk was leisurely and at a relaxed pace. Barbara was my tour guide. She was friendly, vivacious and prompt. The tour ended at the pavilion where I indulged in the most heavenly petit fours and scones. Love that clotted cream with Jam. I give this tour a 5 star.
