Know More about this tour

Start your day with a panoramic tour of London! Sit back as your driver and guide take you through the city and past some of Londons most famous sights. Youll stop at Westminster Abbey, so you can get that all-important photo of the spectacular church where William and Kate were married!

The tour will then reach St Pauls Cathedral, the huge domed church in the old City of London. Designed by celebrated architect Sir Christopher Wren, St Pauls Cathedral is full of historical delights. Enjoy time inside St Pauls Cathedral and see the beautiful architecture, stained glass windows and tombs dedicated to important figures in British history.

You will then head to Buckingham Palace for the charmingly traditional Changing of the Guard ceremony. This regular occurrence involves the brightly dressed Queens Foot Guard changing shifts in spectacular fashion. The guards march alongside a military band as they return to the Palace!

Lunch packs will be included.

The 1,000 year old Tower of London has a history you have to see to believe! Youll have plenty of time to explore this incredible fortress during our extended afternoon visit. Enjoy free time to explore the Tower of London as you wish, learning about its fascinating past. The Tower of London has been used as a palace, royal mint and zoo! See the gorgeous Crown Jewels, kept under lock and key in the Jewel Tower.

Meet The Beefeaters, or Yeoman Warders, are the Tower of Londons official guardians! Hear the tales of the Beefeaters during your exclusive tour with one of the Towers working Yeoman Warders. Listen as the smartly-dressed Beefeater recounts stories about their often grisly role in keeping watch over the Tower of Londons prisoners. Luckily, this isnt part of their job description anymore and these important people are all retired members of the Armed Forces.

Break out of the Tower of London for a River Thames Boat Ride. This scenic trip down the Thames will show you some city sights from an entirely different perspective as you cruise towards the London Eye. Finish your London day trip on a high!

  • If I could rate this a 6 I would. Sandra, our guide, brought London and its history to life. She was fun and really knew how to get the best photo and how to enjoy every venue. She gave us a great appreciation for where we were.

  • This tour was amazing. Saw everything we wanted to see in a short time.

  • Ruth was our tour guide for our London Day Tour, and she was wonderful! Full of so many tidbits and very knowledgeable. My husband and I greatly enjoyed our time in the Tower of London, and actually wish the tour spent a little more time there. We were kinda just let off on our own to tour the place at our own time, and we would've enjoyed a little more guidance and information to enhance our time there. The only things we would warn against: make sure to look into when the Changing of the Guard actually takes place at Buckingham Palace...the tour page does not mention this, but they only do it on certain days of the week. And the day we booked our tour was one of the days they were NOT doing the Changing of the Guard. So we were a little bummed about that.
    Also: the Thames River boat ride is nice, and going up to Greenwich is very interesting. However, the boat ride back down to the London Eye was VERY long...over an hour. By the time we got back to the London Eye, it was almost time for them to close. So we had to run inside and get our tickets quickly, in order to be in line for the Eye before they shut the queue down.
    So I would just be wary of those things, but otherwise the tour was fantastic! Very good for an overview of the wonderful city of London!

  • Great tour guide, shared lots of information. Plenty of time to get a good taste of London in one day.as there is so much to see and so many people doing the same things as you, you can't expect to spend hours at every place. We had a great vantage point for the changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Our guide made sure that we saw each group of the guard from a different place. Timing was perfect. Due to us visiting London just prior to Christmas, there were less crowds and not as much traffic - we were on time for everything. The Tower of London had so much to explore, so much history and not crowded...no wait time! The cruise was good, and visiting Greenwich most informative. The skys cleared at dusk 4:30pm for a magnificent 6pm London Eye night flight. Just wow! Can't wait for our Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath tour!

  • We enjoyed this well-coordinated and conducted tour of London. 3 highlights of the tour among the general bus tour of the important tourist attractions were: 1 St. Peter's Cathedral Basilica 2 Tower of London 3 Relatively good speed boat ride all the way from Tower of London to Greenwich and from Greenwich to London Eye. Sandra was very good to provide running commentary while on the bus as well as explaining well the beauty of St. Peter's Cathedral and Tower of London. Although I have been to London 3X before this tour, this bus tour took us away from the main tourist attraction of British Parliament and Westminster Abbey, which we have seen before a couple of times. Ample time was also there in this tour to witness guard procession at 11 a.m. Thankfully, the drizzle has stopped by then. Mention should also be made that delightful vegetarian lunch box was also included in this package. Finally, we had beautiful and clear view of London from the Eye, which we boarded easily as there was no crowd. Overall, a very enjoyable day tour, which we would recommend highly.
    An item to note is Golden Tours conducts this tour. Viator voucher was easily accepted. However, the place to board the bus took us a little while. You actually have to go to inside the building for which the address is provided and go to end for the bus terminal. The bus does not depart from a street, as it normally would in a tour.

  • This is not a tour for senior citizens. Too much walking involved. Prospective tourists should be warned accordingly.

  • See a lot in one day but if you want to spend more time in on site , this tour is not for you . For us , we enjoyed . Thanks

  • Great tour!

  • This tour gives you an excellent overview of London as well as a tasty little box lunch. Highly recommend.

  • Not what we expected. Never planned to spend several hours for a 45 min visit to Greenwich which was not on the agenda. Never stopped at Westminster Abbey fir photos, we just criss crossed the city on the bus. It was a disappointment.
