Overview

See the best that England’s capital has to offer on a full-day city tour of London! Explore St Paul’s Cathedral with a guide, then make a photo stop at Westminster Abbey. Watch the must-see Changing of the Guard ceremony outside Buckingham Palace and have some free time for lunch around the UNESCO-listed Tower of London. Finish up with a sightseeing cruise down the River Thames. If you want to see even more, upgrade to one of two activities: an afternoon tea on a boat on the Thames, or a London Eye flight.

Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour of the city
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water


  • What You Can Expect

    Start your day with pickup at the Victoria Coach Station in central London, and then travel by air-conditioned coach to St. Paul's Cathedral. Spend the morning there, then travel to Westminster Abbey where Prince William married Kate Middleton in a lavish royal wedding ceremony in 2011. Pose for photos outside the Gothic crowd pleaser. Head to the Mall outside Buckingham Palace to watch the legendary Changing of the Guard ceremony. Accompanied by a military band, soldiers from the Queen’s Foot Guard march in time to drumbeats, performing a ceremonial ritual that dates back centuries.

    Move on to the Tower of London, a former prison, fortress and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit sites like Traitor’s Gate, the Torture Exhibition and, of course, the glittering Crown Jewels – a collection of irreplaceable and historic items. Spend some free time here exploring and eating lunch.

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

    Finish your tour back at the start point or alternatively, upgrade to finish on a high note with one of two optional activities. Options include an afternoon tea on the Thames River 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.

    Please note: If your tour falls on a date when the Changing of the Guard ceremony is not taking place, you will stop at Buckingham Palace for photos

Too big of a group. Only saw the last part of changing of the guard due to waiting on people that did not meet back at the appropriate time while on the tour!! Not fair to everybody else that was timely! This tour could be awesome if less people and no waiting on stragglers!!

Great tour! Learned a bit about the history of London. Loved visiting St. Paul's Cathedral, it is a beautiful church. Went to Buckingham Palace and had front row seats well, we stood, but were in front of all the action the changing of the guards was fascinating to watch. Tower of London was interesting and seeing the Crown Jewels was WOW!. We also got to see the changing of the guards of the Crown Jewels. It was a long day, but we had a lot of fun!

Tour departed from Victoria Coach Station on time, in a clean, comfortable big bus.
Tour guide John did great job in getting us outside of Buckingham Palace about 15 minutes before the Changing of the Guard even with the crazy London traffic, we were able to stand at the first row behind the guardrail. The entire tour was in a nice pace, not rushed, all the places mentioned in the tour were visited, river cruise was every enjoyable. The line at the London Eye was 'very long', even with ticket included in the tour, had to wait several hours. They offered a 'fast track' service for extra 10 pound that can be 'added' to the ticket on site, but it was a Saturday, tons of people, even with fast track, the 'return' time for fast track is 1 and half hour later, with 10 minute waiting time, so I just left, other than that, it was a great tour.
