    We toured the Palace area and saw the changing of the horse guard. Our guide was very knowledgeable - had us in the right place at the right time. We enjoyed a walk through St. James Park and viewed Buckingham Palace
    We ate lunch at The Admiralty - excellent. In the afternoon we toured St. Paul's Cathedral and then The Tower of London. We finished with a boat ride on the Thames.

    Guide (Trudy) was the best ever!! Great day seeing and learning the city. Wish the changing on the guard was at Buckingham other than seeing the guard exit the street. Perfect other than that.

  • 06-Mar-2020

    Really good tour for seeing all the major attractions in one day. I would recommend if you are limited on time. It is a full day and a good bit of walking.

    Leslie and Paul from Tour 4 Feb 29, 2020 were absolutely wonderful. Leslie has a great knowledge of London and was always up for an additional story. Loved the accommodations and the tour.

    We only had one day but this tour was absolutely perfect. Our tour guide was Trudy and she took very good care of us. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Two thumbs up for Trudy!! Tour included a Thames boat tour and admission to the London Eye. Perfect choice for anyone with a very short visit.

    If not a nasty weather it was very good. More specific info on location of the bus in the morning would
    be helpful.
