Hop aboard a vintage double-decker bus for a comfortable sightseeing bus tour through London! On this fun-filled 3.5-hour excursion, you'll see main attractions like Big Ben and the Tower of London, take a Thames River cruise past Westminster and the London Eye, and watch the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Upgrade to include lunch at a traditional British pub.
Your half-day London tour begins in the morning at Victoria Coach Station in city center. Meet your friendly guide and grab a seat in the vintage red double-decker bus, then sit back and take in fantastic views of the city awakening around you. As you ride, hear interesting anecdotes about passing local sites such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey – the venue for every coronation since the 11th century and for 16 royal weddings!
Next head to the banks of the Thames River, where you’ll get an up-close view of the formidable Tower of London. Built by William the Conquerer in the 11th century, the site has a long and stormy history as a prison and execution site. Before continuing on, hear a bit about the famous Beefeater Guards and the Crown Jewels that are housed in the impenetrable fort.
At Tower Pier, board a sightseeing boat and grab a seat in the glass-encased saloon or on the open deck. Drift in comfort along the banks of the historic River Thames and discover London’s history through lively audio commentary. Relax as the boat makes a short loop under the London Bridge, passing the Houses of Parliament, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the London Eye.
After your cruise, hop back on the bus and head to Buckingham Palace to watch the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony. Marvel at the precision and tradition of the ritual, performed by the Queen’s Foot Guard and a military band. Your tour concludes early afternoon near Victoria Railway Station. Upgrade your tour to include a traditional fish and chips lunch at a London pub!

Good tour, the guide was funny and knew about all of the sights. Boat ride was much needed as the temps were high.
Nice small group tour - guide went out of his way to help us get good viewing for the Changing of the Guard

What a quirky way to see the sights of London. We had a ball. If you want to do something a little bit different then do this tour.
Allen was our guide and did a great job, informative and funny. Great job with the kids also.
Wonderful experience! Would recommend this tour to anyone.
Great tour! The guide was very entertaining, knowledgeable, and friendly! This tour takes you through the main tourist sites in central London, without spending too much time at any one place. It is a great way to get an introduction to the city, and allows you to make note of what you'd like to see again on your own. The boat ride on the Thames was a nice plus. The best part of the tour was the changing of the guard, as our tour guide new exactly where we needed to be, and when, to get the most out of the event. I'd also recommend you bring a jacket as it can get chilly on top the bus, and I took this tour during early July. If you can, try to be one of the first people to get on the bus so you can pick the best seats, usually in the very front covered, or back of the bus. HIghly recommended!
The bus tour was fantastic. We were 40 min late got lost on the way they waited for us and said We wouldn't lead without you!
The bus was a classic double decker. The tour guide Nick was great.mhe was animated, funny and knowledgable. We weaved in and out of London traffic, saw the changing of the guard and many other interesting sites along the way.
I would recommend this to my friends and family.
This was an awesome tour. Our guide was amazing.
Great mix of bus and boat. Fantastic introduction to main tourist sites in Westminster. Highly recommended guide.
