Description
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 hop out for fast-track entry 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.

Great way to see London on limited time. Our guide was very informative about each of the areas we visited.

A very useful and enjoyable one day tour of London which covers all the important locations. James our our tour guide was very knowledgeable and would patiently explain the importance of a location.The tour ends at the Tower of London where you get to see the Crown Jewels. You are supposed to take a ferry ride on the Thames which is nothing much other than buildings which you would have already seen during the bus ride and various bridges which link either sides of the river. We were told a 20 minutes frequency for the boat ride, we ended up waiting for an hour. People were complaining in the long queue.Please avoid the ferry ride

It was a good tour. We covered several areas. Loved the Tower part the best. The boat ride was jammed

We enjoyed this tour because we had a very limited time in London. I like that we were shown all of the highlights of the city, but it was hard to see everything while passing it on a bus. I would've liked to have gotten out and had a walking tour as well.

Tower of London is worth visiting. The morning walking tour was boring. You can do the same on your own without a guide. He cared more about the lunch than anything else.
