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. 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 tower’s walls.

Before your tour finishes, receive a ticket for a sightseeing cruise along the River Thames, from the Tower of London to Westminster Pier. Upgrade to include an flexible ticket for the London Eye, to used any time you wish.

    This was a very location packed tour that included a great deal of the London sites. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and the driver did a great job getting us around town amongst all of the London traffic. The only drawback to the coach tour as opposed to a walking tour is that it is sometimes difficult to see particular sites due to the moving coach and where it is relative to where you're sitting. I took the next day to go back to some of the places we drove through so that I could spend more time but without the tour, I wouldn't have known to do so. Very good tour. Highly recommended.

    This is a long day of on and off the bus but a great way to hit the highlights.

    My kids tease me that I'm too frugal. I'm the guy on vacation that tries to go on the cheap. I cannot urge you enough to SPEND THE MONEY. A vacation in London without this tour is a major loss. I was totally blown away and the quality, and yes, the VALUE of what you get. It's just one of those decisions in life you'll be extremely glad you made. Period.

    We spent more time in traffic which is not the tour company fault. But we ended up running out of time out various stops like in the Tower of London.

    It was a great way to an overview of London. I recommend it for people coming to London for the first time.

    Nice tour to do, when you go for the first time to London, because we see almost the importants places to visit.

    This was money well spent. Great guide and driver and they worked well together. I would not have seen as much attempting this on my own. A long day but it was broke up well. Highly recommended.

    Get your walking shoes on and enjoy the day! We did this on our first full day in London, and it was the perfect combo of walking and being transported to many of the sights. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and funny. This was very helpful to get an idea of what we wanted to go back to and spend more time seeing, as well as getting a quick reference on mapping out London. We did both the morning and afternoon tour, and were very happy with both parts of the tour.
