Upgrade to include a flexible London Eye ticket to be used on any day you wish.

Highlights

  • Led by a Blue Badge guide
  • Great overview and orientation of the city

Meet your guide on board your air-conditioned coach, and then relax as you travel around central London to see the sights. 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. Look out for the sights as your guide explains their history and a guided tour of St Paul's Cathedral.

Continue to the Tower of London, and head inside to explore at your leisure. The former prison and fortress, which looks out over the River Thames, was built to terrify potential invaders and Londoners alike. Steeped in centuries of murder and treason, the tower is fascinating to explore with its famous jet-black ravens and Beefeater guides. Should you wish, opt to join one of the complimentary Beefeater tours that run every 30 minutes and hear tragic tales of the royals and nobles who met their end within the tower’s walls.

Before your tour finishes, receive a ticket for a sightseeing cruise along the River Thames, from the Tower of London to Westminster Pier. Upgrade to include an flexible ticket for the London Eye, to used any time you wish.

Our guide, Emily was absolutely FANTASTIC! She was very knowledgeable, kind and did an incredible job of answering everyones questions while keeping the tour on track. The coach was very comfortable and our driver, Mark was wonderful as well. 9 hours sounds like a long tour but it felt like it went by so fast. We learned so much about London with Emily and didn’t even feel the need for another city tour!
Thank you Emily!

My wife and I booked this tour without being sure that we wanted to be tied to a tour group all day. This was our first trip to London. We had been told that the Changing of the Guard was overrated. We didn't know much about the Tower of London. But, we wanted to see St. Paul's Cathedral and Buckingham Palace. We loved the entire tour! Our guide, Trudy, was great! I doubt we could have seen all of this on our own. Going on Thanksgiving was a good idea because we could see Buckingham and the Changing of the Guard very easily with not much crowd. Also, there were not many people in line to see the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London either. One tip: if you have never been to London before and are not being picked up at your hotel for this tour, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to find the meeting point. It is not easy to find if you take the tube to the bus station. We almost missed it and another couple did miss it, but met up with our group later on our lunch break. Still highly recommend this tour if you want to do all of the touristy things in one day and request Trudy!

We had James as our tour guide on October 19th and he was very knowledgeable of history and geography. He represents your company very well!

We had the best experience on this tour! Omar and Derrick were great! Omar is so knowledgeable about the sites of London and had great insight about each site! Derrick was a pro at maneuvering that bus through the craziness of London! It was so nice to sit back and check out the sites in such a manner! We only had 1 day in London and felt that we got the most we could out of this tour. I enjoyed being left at the Tower of London to explore as long as we wanted. The river cruise was the icing on the cake at the end of the day. Drops you off right next to a tube station. I would highly recommend this tour!!
