What You Can Expect

London Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

See the Changing of the Guard outside Buckingham Palace

Select your tour option on booking. Then, after pickup from your central London hotel or meeting point, settle into your air-conditioned coach and head for the Tower of London, the 11th-century fortress that looms over the Thames River.
Gaze up at this forbidding UNESCO World Heritage Site, and then head inside for a tour guided by a Yeoman Warder – one of the colorfully dressed ‘Beefeater’ guards. Enjoy early access before the crowds, and stroll around history-steeped sites such as Traitor’s Gate. Inspect the gruesome torture exhibits at the Wakefield Tower, and ogle the Crown Jewels – the magnificent symbols of royal power that are still used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Continue to Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s official London residence, to see the Changing of the Guard. Watch this centuries-old ceremony as the soldiers of The Queen’s Guard, dressed in red tunics and bearskin hats, exchange places with the new guard to military music.
After a short sightseeing cruise on the Thames, passing top London attractions such as Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and St Paul’s Cathedral; break for a traditional English pub lunch, and then stop to see Westminster Abbey.
Admire this outside of this 13th-century Gothic church, the site of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s marriage in 2011, and then drive to St Paul’s Cathedral, the Baroque church designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1673. Enjoy a tour of the awe-inspiring interior, and visit the famous walkway inside the dome, and the Crypt, home to the tombs of Lord Nelson and Wren.
Then, depending on your selected option, end your tour at the start point or drive to the location of your chosen activity — afternoon tea with a glass of Champagne at the Westminster Park Plaza hotel, or a flight on the London Eye for incredible views of London’s skyline. Your day trip then comes to a close after your activity at the location in question. See the Itinerary for a sample afternoon tea menu.
Please note: On days when the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace does not take place, you will simply enjoy a photo stop at the palace.

Full day of sight seeing. I saw all the main attractions of London I especially loved Tower of London and the boat cruise. All the sights were great, only thin is Westminster Abby was cut short and we did not have time to go in the church. Our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable.

John was an outstanding guide on our first full day in London. He was so knowledgeable and friendly. We really felt like we got a great overview of the city to be able to move forward and explore more on our own in subsequent days. He even knew some great strategies for getting to see the top tourist locations at the right times. We had a great bus driver who picked us up at our hotel and drove for our tour as well.

The tour was with Premium Tours. I got to Victoria Coach Station on my own and it was very easy to find where I should be. The tour started on time and everything was just perfect. We had a good guide in Karen and she was a fountain of information. We had enough time in all the locations to really take in everything.
