It is important to arrive at the tower 15 minutes prior to the tour start time to allow yourself time to get through the mandatory security check. We do start the tour promptly and it would be unfair for the others if we need to wait for those that are late. We cannot guarantee you’ll be able to find your tour group if you are late.
Tips are always appreciated by our guides, but never expected. They should be given if you believe your guide did an outstanding job, and further, if you as an individual want to demonstrate your appreciation to the guide for that job well done.
