Know More about this tour

Pop in your state-of-the-art Vox headphones as your tour starts and listen to your guide talking clearly about each site. If you want to wander aside and take photos of attractions, you won’t miss any of the commentary!

First stop is a guided tour of Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece, St. Paul's Cathedral. Crowned by the magnificent dome that continues to dominate the London skyline, the cathedral was rebuilt after the Great Fire of London in 1666. In recent years it has seen the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales, to Lady Diana Spencer and, most recently, the thanksgiving services for both the Golden Jubilee and 80th Birthday of Her Majesty the Queen.

Then it's on to the Tower of London, the ancient fortress steeped in centuries of murder and treason, guarded by jet-black ravens. The splendidly dressed Beefeaters will tell you about the Tower's history, including tragic tales of royals and nobles who met their end within its walls. You'll also see the fabulous Crown Jewels, including the 6,000-year-old Koh-I-Noor diamond and impressive coronation regalia. Before you leave the tower, your guide will hand you a ticket for sightseeing cruise to Westminster Pier. The ticket can be used after your tour, or any other day of your choice (up until March 31, 2016).

You'll then continue by coach to the City of London, that famous square mile where brash new architecture towers above buildings dating back to medieval times. The Romans founded Londinium here 2,000 years ago, and the city's square mile of narrow streets follows the cramped medieval street plan.
You'll see the glorious dome of St. Paul's Cathedral, the elegant Mansion House, home to the Lord Mayor of London, and the nearby Bank of England, known as the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street, at the heart of the City.

  • Good tour. The Tower of London was very interesting. This tour shows only some of what an outsider would call London. Be aware London and Westminster are 2 separate places for this tour.

  • Very good tour and finishing with a ride on the Thames was the highlight to me. A tour like this is ideal for people with a short amount of time to spend in London.

  • Great tour, very very interesting... Boat ride at the end was the best! Tower tour was really good as well. I would recommend.

  • The directions for the meeting place for the tour were not clear. We almost missed the tour. Thank goodness I came early and I had a copy of the important information part so I could call the office for help. There was an extra expense for taxi service to get to the tour meeting place, when we had purchased day passes for the the train and bus. The tour guide and tour was very nice and we enjoyed all we saw. It rained a little but we were prepared for the short shower. The Tower of London tour was accompanied by a River Cruise which we thought was a nice conclusion to the day. We saw even more of the city.

  • Good chance to tour St Paul and #39;s and the tower of London, boat pass at the end was a real delight. Pretty limited time at St Paul and #39;s and we did not get to go up in the tower, sadly.

  • The London traffic was so severe that we could not make it to the rendezvous point in time. The tour guide went out of his way to have us join up, but again, traffic made it impossible. I cannot comment on the tour, but did appreciate the guide's efforts to allow us to catch up with the group. My suggestion for anyone touring in London, plan on at least one hour travel TO GET TO A 15 MINUTE RENDEZVOUS.

  • I picked this tour to hear more about the London as we were riding the bus, but our guide gave little or no information while we were driving. However, she did a nice job in the St.Paul and the Tower of London.

  • Fabulous tours, worth the price. So glad that I did this.

  • Amazing trip

  • Great commentary in St Paul's and around the City of London. Disappointed with the Tower of London tour however. Guides are not allowed in to the different areas of the Tower so we were worse off than if we had an independent entry and bought an audio tour.
