Pass through Parliament Square, seeing the Houses of Parliament and the Big Ben clock, and then travel past Westminster Abbey where Prince William married Kate Middleton in a lavish royal wedding ceremony. Admire prestigious government buildings at Whitehall and Downing Street, and then see the hustle and bustle that surrounds Nelson’s Column at Trafalgar Square. Travel to Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of the Queen, and walk around in front of the gates to see the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony. Have your camera ready to capture the pomp and pageantry of the Queen’s Foot Guard as they march in their eye-catching red tunics and bearskin hats, and then travel by coach to a traditional London pub in Trafalgar Square. Rest and refuel with a hearty lunch (own expense), and then continue your day of sightseeing with a visit to the City of London, an area just east of the city center where many of London’s banks can be found.

Steeped in centuries of murder and treason, the tower is fascinating to explore with its famous jet-black ravens and Beefeater guides.

Customer Reviews JOSEPH S 20-Nov-2017 Great way to start a vacation to London! We've used La Vacanza Travel.com more than a dozen times and continue to be impressed with the diversity of tours offered and quality of guides provided. This tour started at 9 am at the Victoria Coach Station. That's not a great location, as it's a bit dirty and crowded, but that's not any reflection on the tour or La Vacanza Travel.com. The tour was actually by Evan Evans, and was done professionally. Our bus was not completely full so we didn't feel cramped driving around the city or when we got off and walked around. We purchased the optional London Eye tour also, which fit well into the day. We saw the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace toured St. Paul's Cathedral, walked near but not in Westminster Cathedral saw Big Ben which is under construction, walked through the Tower of London and saw the Crown Jewels which were awesome!. Got to see the Tower Bridge too, which many of us Americans think is the London Bridge, which it isn't! Had a boat ride at the end of the tour, which took us near the London Eye...The boat ride is well worth it, as they point out many sights as well. Overall a wonderful day, which ended up around 7 pm. We went in mid-November, so the crowds were low, and we had to wait only 10 minutes to get on the London Eye. I highly recommend this tour for those wishing to familiarize themselves with the beautiful city of London. Robert B 15-Nov-2017 Really Wonderful tour guide!! Great way of seeing and getting some of the History of London. Very well paced and free time was appreciated. One drawback was that we were not able to ride the London Eye due to the late arrival of the river cruise. Jessica.rodriguez718 30-Oct-2017 Great tour! Our tour guide took us to the best spot during the changing of the guards at buckingham palace. We got some amazing photos and videos! :) Melody G 30-Oct-2017 Our tour guide was amazing very energetic had lots of information to share great tour. Keith H 20-Oct-2017 Would strongly recommend this tour. It covers the high points of London, in an organized fashion, when time is of the essence! Please wait...
