A royal day. Changing of the guard was so dramatic. The state rooms just stunning and the river cruise so scenic. Enjoyed the Buckingham cafe for tea and dessert and picked up a darling welsh corgi keyring.

Totally enjoyed our bus tour on Sunday morning. We were able to see so much of London, in a short period of time. The driver was super spectacular, especially when you consider he had to avoid the bike London. We made it on time to the changing of the guards. Most tour groups missed it ,being stuck in traffic. Our guide had the perfect combination of knowledge and humor. We totally enjoyed!!!!

My husband and I had just 2 full days in London so this excursion was perfect for us. Nick our tour guide made the tour even greater with his theatrical input in describing the history of London and its attractions. We only touched the surface on The Tower if London. Very interesting. We will come back and do it on it own. We feel like we got to know London with Nick’s insite and in deapt knowledge about the city and its attractions. The Changing of the Guards and Buckingham Palace was better than I had expected. It is a very Real exoerience being in the staterooms the Queen uses for visits by head of state and other important events like giving out medals of honors, Garden Parties etc.

Well organised tour, perfect way to see the sights from the top of a double decker bus! It was great to hop on and off the bus to see the sights. The tour guide told various stories on and off the bus and on the river cruise on the Thames: a fascinating way to see London - Westminster, bridges galore, buildings old and new. Fantastic. Buckingham Palace was a highlight - the architecture, the paintings, the ceilings, the carpets, the opportunity to walk through the royal rooms, seeing gifts presented to The Queen during her reign. Highly recommend this tour.

Bus experience was awesome. Kevin drove that big bus like it was a mini-car and Mark ? our Scottish guide provided everything we wanted/needed to know about London !

We had a fantastic tour. Excellent tour of the sights of London with a brilliant tour guide. Getting to see the Changing of the Guard was fun and carried out with military procession enabling us to witness three different aspects of it. Couldn't quite believe how lovely the boat was for the river cruise - after which we were transferred to Buckingham Palace and ushered straight to the entrance effortlessly - we then enjoyed a visit to the State Rooms. Really enjoyed the whole tour experience and excellent value for money. Special thanks to our guide.

It was great !

Excellent tour! Covered lots of sites. Our guide was very knowledgeable! The only thing I didn't like was being rushed into Buckingham Palace at the end of the tour. It was a half day tour and it would have been nice to have just received the passes and then gone in after some lunch!

This tour didn't start too but as the day went along things improved significantly, our guide was pretty good giving us interesting tidbits along the way. The cruise was wonderful and Buckingham Palace was amazing.
