Know More about this tour

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.

  • We truly enjoyed this excursion!! Since we only had one full day to sightsee in London, we felt that we got the most for the money on this excursion. The guide was delightful and really explained things very well!! The day before, however, was a different story. We were to be picked up at Gatwick for our ride to our hotel in Central London. When we got there, no one was there to pick us up. We went to a nearby kiosk and explained our dilemma. Unbelievably, he knew the name of the company that wasn't there immediately!! He said they were NEVER there on time. I was very angry that I paid decent money and no one was there to pick us up. Once the man at the kiosk made a phone call for us, we found out that the driver was at the wrong terminal!! Since you had our flight information, i thought that was unacceptable. If you relied on this company for your income, you would have none!! I really don't feel we should have to pay full price for this service since it was poorly done! If this was my only experience with Viator, I would probably never call them again.

  • Really Wonderful tour guide!! Great way of seeing and getting some of the History of London. Very well paced and free time was appreciated. One drawback was that we were not able to ride the London Eye due to the late arrival of the river cruise.

  • Our tour guide was amazing very energetic had lots of information to share great tour.

  • Great tour! Our tour guide took us to the best spot during the changing of the guards at buckingham palace. We got some amazing photos and videos! :)
