Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Tower of London, Changing of the Guard, Thames Cruise with Harrods Cream Tea or London Eye Upgrade

See the Changing of the Guard outside Buckingham Palace

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.

What a perfect introduction to the city. We covered a lot of territory and saw so many of the major sights and our guide was very knowledgeable. We were really pleased that there was a good amount of walking involved instead of just riding round on a bus. Speaking of which, kudos to our bus driver navigating narrow streets with LOTS of traffic. Nerves of steel!!

Amazing full day of the wonderful London sites! Our tour guide, David, was an absolute pleasure to be with and provided us all with the history and special facts for each and every stop. Our family of seven from 11 years old to our 3 seniors enjoyed every location and felt that there was enough time at each to enjoy and take in all the beautiful sites. Would highly recommend this tour to first time visitors. Remember to ask for David....he was wonderful!
