First time in London? Visit the capital’s most iconic landmarks on this full-day London tour, including a Thames River cruise and a ride on the famous London Eye. You’ll stop for photos at Westminster Abbey, take a tour of St Paul’s Cathedral and admire panoramic views of the capital from your air-conditioned coach. There’s a chance to get a taste of Royal London too, as you tour the notorious Tower of London, view the Crown Jewels and watch the traditional Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
Really enjoyed our full day tour. Godfrey, our guide, was friendly and informative. During the river cruise, we stopped at Greenwich, which I don't recall seeing in the description. What a great surprise to see the famous Cutty Sark ship and stand on the Prime Meridian location. Topping off the trip with the London Eye made the day even better.
This tour was quite inclusive with numerous activities and sites in a day. Our guide gave good information and answered questions. She was diligent in making sure we saw everything that was expected and that we got to Buckingham Palace in time to find as good a location as possible to view the changing of the guard.
The tour gave us a good insight into the main attractions of London. We spent a good amount of time at the Tower of London and at St Paul's Cathedral. We did quite a lot of driving around the streets and also took the water bus on the Thames to a couple of attractions. The packed lunch was a cheese sandwich, bottle of water and packet of crisps and you could have purchased more food at the Tower of London if needed. The tours ran on schedule and finished at the London Eye. Our tour guide gave us detailed information on how to find our way back to our accommodation. An enjoyable day.
I booked this tour on September 10. Tour was basically as providing the transport and tickets to the attractions. The guide Mr David kept talking to a family in Spanish most of the time while the majority of tourists were English speaking. The tour can be upgraded by providing whispers or similar devices so the visitor can follow what the guide is telling even they are behind. It was very hard to hear what the guide was telling. Also the River cruise was on the commercial passenger water taxi not a cruise with guide or narration with no narration by guide. We were taken to Greenwich 30 minute to go and 45 minutes to come back. We were given only 15 minutes to explore a navy museum children learning center. It was waste of time. I was disappointed in tour.
Very large tour group, guide was more interested in saving time that showing the sights and telling history. The eye of London ended the tour. Tickets were not skip the line and the guide left with little to no instructions as to how to exchange vouchers for tickets.
Started with upper level complaining loudly about not hearing. Got worse when we had to walk a long way to Changing of the Guard. Lost track of the guide. Finally found him. Checked in. He had a phone call to find another lost member. He never came back. We got left there. We were told they had gone on to the Tower of London and we had to make our way there. Couldn't find them there. No one answered the phone. We have yet to see the afternoon stops. Very poorly handled.
the location to pickup the tour was very inconvenient for us and added un-necessary costs . I have been to London a few times and taken tours. I did not find this to be informative or stimulating in any way. I think we would have done better on our own using local transportation. The lunch was in-edible.. too bad since i was hungry. Other tours to the tour London the guide stayed and took us into and explained the history .. we were on our end with no direction as to what to see. We had to meet up 15 minutes early at each stop in order to wait for the stragglers. Did not know this until the end, very annoying. We had intended to book more tours, however I was not doing a Golden Tour and wouldn't recommend. If I didn't ask questions for myself and the group, we just were not provided with the history and local color that is the reason I do the tours. Loved Grayline when they were doing these ...
