False Information
dll93547
, Sep 2019
"Globe 30 minute tours from 9:30 am", "Globe hours 9:30-5:00 pm daily". This information was FALSE for the day we booked our ticket; tours ended at 12:30 pm and it wasn't the first time the Globe Staff had heard of this misinformation being spread. This booking company needs to update their information and stop misleading tourists. These times are not an unexpected change in The Globe's schedule and should not be disregarded in the booking information. Please Book cautiously! Misinformation like this should be refunded!

Great package if you're Prepared to walk

The Globe and globe tour was most excellent, no complaints.The tour guide on the boat was likewise informative and entertaining.I take off two full stars b/c the write up advertises that you can disembark on the pier right outside the Globe and YOU CANNOT. We had to get off at the tower of London and hoof it back to the Globe, not exactly a short hike. Otherwise, I'd rate 5/5.

The Globe Theater was a great tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He included many a history lesson on London while showing us the theater. We purchased this tour in conjunction with the hop on/hop off river cruise. LOVED the river cruise. We boarded at Westminister early in the morning and our crew was lively, informative, and kept up a commentary on the places we passed. Very interesting history. It should be noted that the river cruise no longer stops at the advertised location that is close to the Globe Theater so we actually had to exit at a different stop and call an Uber to take us to the Theater. Minor inconvenience, but not what we had expected. We rode the cruise all the way to Greenwich and stayed there for about 2 hours exploring this wonderful little town that we really knew nothing about. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer, but we had other things to do that day. The crew on the return cruise was not as involved with the passengers and did not provide much commentary on the sights. I highly recommend the cruise and that you take advantage of the stops along the way to explore the areas.

There were some glitches. The print out from Viator was not recognized by the folks on the ship. After wandering from ship to ship we were directed to a ticket area. The host did not, in fact, stop near the Globe. No one on the boat had heard of our particular ticket. We got off at the Tower slip and walked to the Globe. Trying to return we were told the boat slip by the Globe would not go back to Westminster. Threw in the towel and walked to the tubes in Blackfriars. Globe tour was awesome. Boat was nice. Do them separately and buy them on the day when you are there.

The Globe was impressive and the guide, they provided, was a bit pretentious, but maybe that was to be expected.It is a place to see if you love the theater. The bad part was that no place in the booking process did it say the Themes Cruise didn't stop at the Globe until later in the season and after our trip. That should have been made more clear! Susan
