What can I expect on the tour? 

Panoramic bus tour:

Sit back and relax while you travel through the heart of London on board a luxury coach. An expert tour guide will share interesting facts about London´s fascinating history along the way. The route covers some of London´s most famous landmarks, such as the Albert Memorial, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and much more! 

The Changing of the Guard:

No visit to London would be complete without a stop at Buckingham Palace to watch the Changing of the Guard! A historical ceremony, where the New Guard of the Household Division arrive accompanied by a regimental marching band to replace the Old Guard in their duty of protecting the Palace.  Instantly recognisable in their bearskin caps and scarlet tunics, they may not look like standard military, but don´t let the outfits fool you -they are in fact elite soldiers from the British army! 

St. Paul's Cathedral Guided Tour: 

This magnificent domed cathedral is one of the most recognisable sights in London and still a symbolical part of the city´s skyline, even after 300 years! 

Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, it took 35 years to build this masterpiece, and it is one of the largest churches in the world.

Take a guided walking tour through the Cathedral, learn about the history of this 366ft high dome and discover the incredible art and statues that it houses. 

The Tower of London

The next stop on this tour is the fascinating and impressive Tower of London. Explore nearly a thousand years of history at this notoriously grisly castle. Built by William the Conqueror in 1066, this site has been used as a prison, as a royal palace, and an execution tower, with the last execution taking place in 1941. 

Thames River Cruise

After visiting the Tower of London, head down to Tower Pier and board the next available boat to enjoy a scenic cruise down the River Thames. Discover the beautiful view of London from the water as you head to Westminster Pier, next to the iconic Houses of Parliament.
