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 Nelsons 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 Queens 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 Londons 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. The former prison and fortress, which looks out over the River Thames, was built to terrify potential invaders and Londoners alike. Steeped in centuries of murder and treason, the tower is fascinating to explore with its famous jet-black ravens and Beefeater guides. Should you wish, opt to join one of the complimentary Beefeater tours that run every 30 minutes and hear tragic tales of the royals and nobles who met their end within the towers walls.

  • Fast paced but very informative and comprehensive

  • Our tour guide Sheila was exceptional.. Made the experiences come alive with a light and humorous presentation.

  • Amazing - loved our tour guide and driver!

  • Overall good experience, a good way to see the top highlights on London in a short time.

  • The tour was ok. The tour guide new basics and felt a little like she was just fulfilling her job. Wasn’t the best. Was just ok.
    In retrospect, I would’ve gone with another company as there are many options.

  • ALTHOUGH IT WAS A GOOD TRIP, IT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER. FOR ME IF THE TIME WE SPENT IN THE ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL COULD HAVE BEEN SHORTENED AND SPENT ELSEWHERE, SUCH AS, IN LONDON BRIDGE, VICTORIA MUSEUM, ETC. OUR GUIDE DEBBIE WAS EXCELLENT

  • Great tour! This tour included the must see places. Great tour guide. Would definitely recommend!

  • This was a good day - our tour guide James was great, he was very knowledgeable and very English. The only issue we had for the whole day was that we would have liked to have been in a better position to see the Changing of the Guard. Otherwise all other locations were great, enough time to spend at each without feeling too rushed. The Tower of London was the highlight of the day, we were free to wander the grounds at our own pace and really explore. I would recommend this tour to people who are on a limited timeframe, have a day and would like to see some key highlights of London. We finished the day with the cruise up the Thames and it was a great way to finish off a lovely day.

  • James our Tour Guide did an amazing job. His knowledge of the entire tour was amazing. He did not miss a beat the entire day. James did an excellent job in keeping us on schedule. He had an answer for every question that was asked.

  • Great way to start a vacation to London! We've used Viator.com more than a dozen times and continue to be impressed with the diversity of tours offered and quality of guides provided. This tour started at 9 am at the Victoria Coach Station. That's not a great location, as it's a bit dirty and crowded, but that's not any reflection on the tour or Viator.com. The tour was actually by Evan Evans, and was done professionally. Our bus was not completely full so we didn't feel cramped driving around the city or when we got off and walked around. We purchased the optional London Eye tour also, which fit well into the day. We saw the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace toured St. Paul's Cathedral, walked near but not in Westminster Cathedral saw Big Ben which is under construction, walked through the Tower of London and saw the Crown Jewels which were awesome!. Got to see the Tower Bridge too, which many of us Americans think is the London Bridge, which it isn't! Had a boat ride at the end of the tour, which took us near the London Eye...The boat ride is well worth it, as they point out many sights as well. Overall a wonderful day, which ended up around 7 pm. We went in mid-November, so the crowds were low, and we had to wait only 10 minutes to get on the London Eye. I highly recommend this tour for those wishing to familiarize themselves with the beautiful city of London.
