Hi AGoodEnglishLearner! They are both correct, and in most situations you can use either one. But there is a slight difference in meaning. 

  • on the tour = during the tour
  • in the tour = included in the tour / as a part of the tour

Hi meomeomeo. You're right, Big Ben is under repair at the moment. I heard it's going to take about four years before it sounds again. So, look out for any news about how the repairs are going. :)

Yes. I have been to London. The Big Ben and Westminster Eye were the real highlights according to me. I have also been to Oxford, though not for study, and I have seen Buckingham Palace too. Now Big Ben will be renovated. I would like to go to the United Kingdom again as I have not seen the countryside. I would like to go to Northern Ireland too. I have been told it is a beautiful place.

Yes I have. I haven't been to the London Eye, or to Madam Tussaud's museum but I 've been to the other places, like Tower Bridge and Big Ben. I'd like to visit New York City because I'd like to go up the Statue of Liberty.

No, I haven't, unfortunately. I would like to visit Madrid city and Buenos Aires city too. I would like to visit Madrid because I have been listening a lot of the big fountains and streets there. In my view, I read that Buenos Aires city has a lot of restaurants and tours to enjoy in family.

Hi anwar2000,
The difference between famous people and celebrities  -  when you speak of celebrities you think about people that are on the television or maybe film stars. Whereas famous people can be television or film stars but can also be known for other things such as being a president, a painter or an inventor etc.
For your second question, wax is the substance that makes a candle.
I hope this helps ... best wishes, Tina (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

No I havent been before. Also I havent gone abroad yet. But ı want to start a journey after my graduation at the end of this year. Because i studied my lessons, entered good schools but i forgot to live. I want to meet with different cultures and travel around Europe and Asia alone. Life is not only getting a job and earning money. Life is more than this. I will live.
