Royal London Sightseeing Tour with Changing of the Guard Ceremony

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Our guide was knowledgeable and funny. She had great background stories and tips for spending our time when the tour was over. Our guide did a great job getting us placed for the entrance of the guards at Buckingham Palace and then taking us to the general area for the actual changing ceremony. The place is complete chaos and only for dedicated fans but it's exciting to have been where so many people aspire to be. The only disappointing part was that the description of the tour mentioned Westminster Abbey and Big Ben and we never got close to these sights. In fact, we didn't get close to the river at all. We did, however, have a bit of time outside St. Paul's Cathedral with great tips from the guide regarding the best vantage point for photos. Overall, a great tour worth doing if your time in London is limited.

My Review
I'm not usually one for doing tours, but my mother and I had two and a half days in London and wanted to see as much as possible. Our tour guide and bus driver were a superb team and we had a lovely day outside London, seeing Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath. We covered a lot of territory in 12-13 hours but the guide kept us informed along the way so we always knew what to expect. We made lunch selections on the bus between tours and the guide called our orders in to a local restaurant so we had a hot meal prepared quickly upon arrival. No wasted time there! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and offered plenty of details and background information. I felt that we maximized our limited time and we were able to enjoy much more than we could have on our own.
