What to expect

With an enormous city like London, full of iconic landmarks, parks and buildings, it's hard to know where to begin your adventures. Luckily, on this tour you can experience all of London's best, biggest, most beautiful sights all in one day. With your fantastic guide on board with you, you'll never be left wondering what you're seeing: they will regale you with stories of London's fascinating history, varied culture and beguiling intrigue. Without ruining all the surprises which this tour entails, you will see the Albert Memorial, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and much, much more!

One of the most exciting parts will be witnessing the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, where the guard keeping watch over the Queen takes leave of his post and is immediately replaced by another. You can expect fantastic regalia, marching, and a band: the best of British pomp and ceremony. You will also get to visit St Paul's Cathedral and explore its enormous dome, hearing how Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece took 35 years to complete. Next you'll head to the formidable Tower of London which was built by William the Conqueror in 1066 and which holds a whole host of gruesome and fascinating history.

To top the day off, you'll head on a gorgeous cruise down the infamous River Thames, allowing you to see the city from a new perspective and to relax on the water. There's no better introduction to this vast and beautiful city than this full-day tour.
