again, palace was great and having a ticket was wonderful, but the tea wait for food was unpleasant.
Reply From Gray Line:
Hello,

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your portion of the tour that was conducted by Gray Line! It is unfortunate to hear that the staff of the The Grosvenor Hotel in Victoria was a bit 'off' on the day you visited. We opt for this location based on their spectacular service and selection, and do apologize on everyone's behalf that there was something left to be desired during this particular visit.

The visit to Buckingham Palace to see the State Rooms was definitely an amazing activity to do in London. However the company gave fairly vague instructions on pick up location- ours was listed as Grosvenor Hotel, but the staff there knew nothing about this. And neither did a Grayline employee. We thankfully made it to the Golden Tours office on time. The afternoon tea at the Grosvenor Hotel was nice, but I would not pay extra to add this to the tour looking back.
