Description
Choose between a half-day or full-day private tour, and then relax as your expert guide drives you around the city for an in-depth look at the British monarchy. Sites visited on the half-day tour are only seen from the outside, so if you’re eager to see more and really follow in the footsteps of the British Royal Family then book the full-day tour instead! Entry to each attraction will be at your own expense, but your expert guide will show you around and explain the history once inside.

See where Britain’s current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, was born, and then visit her residence at Buckingham Palace before seeing Westminster Abbey – the site of her coronation. Look out for the shops and stores that hold prestigious Royal Warrants, like Fortnum & Mason, as your driver heads through the city center streets.

Around the city are various statues of famous royals, and your expert guide will point these out as you pass them. See statues of Henry VIII, Alfred the Great and George V – the king whose famous speech impediment was documented in the hit British film, The King’s Speech (featuring Colin Firth). Visit top London attractions like the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament hear how the royals have influenced them over the ages.

Learn about the Changing of the Guard ceremony, and find out who actually lives in each of London’s royal palaces. Hear how royal etiquette dictates how one should greet the Queen, and about the monarchy’s protocols and famously ‘stiff upper lip.’

During your tour your expert guide will be there to answer any questions you may have about the royals and the Queen’s 60 years of sovereignty: Why does the Changing of the Guard ceremony take place? Why does the Queen have two birthdays? What is her correct title? All these questions and more will be answered as Royal London unveils on this private black taxi tour.

Andrew was a delight! He absolutely filled our tour with historical as well as current data on the great city of London. We would hire im ahain in a heartbeat!

Our private tour was defiantly 1st class. Andrew was prompt, professional and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Andrew used our 4 hours effectively and efficiently. We started near Hyde Park and as we toured all the royal sites, Andrew's commentary was very specific and interesting. We drove through the streets of London, walked the paths of history and all the while, our tour guide was constantly drawing us into the deep rich history of each site. There were stops and views that we had not expected but were delighted to have had the opportunity to experience. If you have little, precious time in London, I would recommend this tour with Andrew. It will leave you wanting to come back to delve even deeper into the rich history and current goings on in downtown London.

We used this tour and cab as a way to get around London in first class. We were dropped off at the door each place we visited. Our driver was very professional and polite.

Bonitos lugares para visitar. El guía se excedio en hablar, lo cual no nos permitía hablar ni entre nuestra familia.
Terminamos mareados de tanto que hablo.
