Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Select your tour option on booking. Then, after pickup from the central London meeting point at Victoria Coach Station, settle into your air-conditioned coach and head for St. Paul's Cathedral, where you'll spend the morning exploring. Make a photo stop to see Westminster Abbey, where you can admire the outside of this 13th-century Gothic church, the site of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s marriage in 2011.
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.

Move on to the Tower of London, the 11th-century fortress that looms over the Thames River. Spend some free time in the area exploring or having lunch, then meet back up with your group for a tour of the forbidding UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll around history-steeped sites such as Traitor’s Gate, inspect the gruesome torture exhibits at the Wakefield Tower, and check out the Crown Jewels – the magnificent symbols of royal power that are still used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Hop aboard a sightseeing boat for an extended trip down the River Thames. Cruise down the river, looking out for the top London attractions such as Tower Bridge, Shakespeare’s Globe, and then step out onto dry land. 

Finish your tour at London Eye or alternatively, upgrade to finish on a high note with one of two optional activities. Options include a cream tea with a glass of sparkling wine at Harrods restaurant or a must-do London Eye flight, for picture-perfect views over the capital. Both activities include transport to the attraction, but no transport back. Harrods cream tea includes Home-baked English Scones served with clotted cream and preserves, choice of tea from Harrods own tea gardens plus a glass of sparkling wine.

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.

If your going to London , you need to see the Tower of London ! So Much to see, so much history ! Great
day tour with a great Guide!

Changing of Guard was a complete flop. The best part was tower jewels, london eye and thames cruise. Westminster abbey and St. Pauls were only visited from outside.

London city tour was great! Guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Wished the tour used audio set during the walk around the sights, difficult to follow and hear guide when many tourists are doing the same thing with their guides. If you don’t stay at front of group you’ll miss what guide is explaining.

Our guide John was amazing. He knows so much of the history from everywhere that he took us. Best tour guide ever!!!

Ok, we sat a lot, we sat a lot waiting to leave the train station, we missed the changing of the guard. The instructions werent very clear often when we got off the bus, I left my jacket and went to get it the next day, said they had it, they didnt. Wasted time going there, Uber to get there, no one to help me. They said they were open early, no one in the office.

This tour was long but covered a lot of territory! We only had one day in London and this worked perfect for us. The guide was professional and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend

Tour was Ok, but you did not actually see the changing of the guards!! Overall the tour was ok on the bus, but the bus was not always on time and we were late.
