Fascinating insight into the workings and history of the RAH. You cannot help but be impressed at the work of the Hall and the way it is run.

A well worthwhile time spent in this wonderful building with pleasant company .
The tour guide was very welcoming and helpful . We were given time and space to enjoy the visit and lots of information without the overload.
Our tickets were at the Hall on our arrival with the tour guide so no waiting around, delays etc.
Enjoy the Albert Hall in all its glory , thanks to all involved , party on London !

We loved it. It’s a beautiful hall with excellent acoustics. In our tour, we were fortunate to see a performer practicing for her concert that evening. Highly recommend.

This is a super, not to be missed, top of the list, tour of an iconic, very historic London institution. We have been here numerous times, spending over four months in total and missed this tour until we stumbled across it this morning. It is so interesting, informative and awe inspiring. Our guide was one of the best we have ever had. Very professional, well informed and very into educating his group about this wonderful venue.

It was very interesting and enriching. The only thing that would do it better for all of us is if the guide could speak a little bit slower because English is not our first language. But again it was excellent and definitely next ti.e I'll be in London i will come to a concert in Albert Hall. Thanks

It was a very informative tour, with a very knowledgeable guide (Jonquil...I think that is correct). It would have been nice to see behind the stage and stand on the stage, but there was a performance rehearsing, so don't know if you would have been able to do this if this was not taking place. Overall great experience.
