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.

This was our first trip to London so we wanted an overview to see as much as we could in a short period of time. Our guide, Danny, was great. He was kind, knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend it to others.

Tour guide frank was great. Did this tour the first day here. Highly recommend that just to get a feel for the city. We are here in sept from 21-25. After this we did the hop on hop off. Reason why, the first tour is done early before the regular tourist get up with the kids or the hard to get up in the morning.You see all the hot spots and you can go back and either see then again on the hop off , hop on. Crown Jewels and the eye where the hi-litres. But all was fantastic and put together very well.

Our guide Karen was awesome: knowledgable, friendly, and funny! The tour was perfectly timed so we saw a LOT but were not rushed. i would highly recommend this tour.

By the way, should you have Karen as your guide, her voice and quips will remind you of a charachter from an American comedy from 1968, starring 2 mismatched bachelors trying to not murder each other. Hint: the movie was spun off into a long running TV series in the USA.
