A small group tour limited to 30 people and a glass of champagne - that would be great for anyone in the city on those specific dates.

Wonder if it is going to become a regular thing . . . . .

It's not exactly a bargain, but we're celebrating our anniversary and are booked to do this. We've toured in the summer, but look forward to having the small group and imagine Buckingham Palace to take on more of "magical glow" at night. We can't wait! Missy

For that price, I'd expect a very magical glow from the champagne....

I know, Patrick. I wasn't for it. Hubby wanted to splurge. Otherwise, it's a budget trip of fave London walks, free musuems and pubs. We're not seeing any shows this trip and it's cheaper than that. So, to each their own. We'll enjoy it. Still, I agree with you on the price! Missy

For $130, I'd ask to meet the Queen....or maybe not ;-)

hehe....maybe she'll show up? NOT! Seriously, we've spent much more than that seeing several shows in London on trips. You could drop more than that on some Evan Evans tours, too, and darn near that much on afternoon tea. I'll be sure to not wear white tennis shoes. hehe Missy

I'm reviving an old thread to ask if anyone has taken the "private" evening tour of Buckingham Palace and, if so, what you thought of it. The tours are being offered this year (2012), and I'm considering doing one in September.

By the way, at the current exchange rate, the cost is about $100, not the $130 mentioned above (still pricy, just not as pricy).
