My 7 year old daughter and I went on this tour and I was really disappointed. Often times, we were so far away from the point of interest, i.e. Kensington or Buckingham Palace that trying to get a good photo was difficult. We ended up getting off the bus at Buckingham Palace and not finishing the remainder of the tour. Also, the Changing of the Guard didn't take place that day. Honestly, I would not do this tour and I love to do tours. Put your money towards purchasing an entry ticket to Buckingham Palace or something else and skip this tour...you will thank me later :-)

This is a drive by tour not a real tour. It would have been nice to see the inside of any of the historic buildings.

The trip wasn't as we expected and didn't really focus on the Royal Wedding. It was more of a general tour of London with a brief stop by Kensington and Buckingham Palaces. The guide wasn't very pleasant either

Basically we felt as though we sat in traffic for 2 hours,and then saw the parade that precedes the changing of the guard. Not a mention of the "royal wedding procession" during the tour. We also assumed we would see the changing of the guards, as opposed to the pre and post parade. The title of the tour is very misleading.
Our tour guide Rodney was less than enthusiastic,although informative.
Rodney, told us where to stand to watch the parade that leads to the changing of the guard,and said"that,s all you need to know".
A little condescending?

I wouldn't recommend it. This tour is on the same bus tour as an all day London tour. There was limited talk about the Royal Wedding since it wasn't a specific tour for that (marketing makes it appear that it is). Also, the tour was less than 3 hours.

In general it was a delightful tour with a knowledgable and witty tour guide (Trudy). However, as far as the "Changing of the Guard Ceremony" goes the tour was a hoax. We were led to a place were we could witness a couple of guards marching to Buckingham Palace but we did see nothing of the ceremony nor had the opportunity to enjoy the musical aspects of the event. Since for us this had been the main reason for chosing this tour it was clearly a waste of time and money.
