Full description
Take a full-day tour of London’s most iconic sights on this 9-hour panoramic guided tour. You will soon be on your way, enjoying the city in all its glory as you drive past some of London's most famous landmarks. Visit St Paul’s Cathedral exploring the masterpiece designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1673, taking time to listen to the 1695 organ that Mendelssohn once played and visit the tombs of Nelson and Wellington.  Continue to The Mall to watch the Changing of the Guards, as one of the Queen's Foot Guard Household Regiment march from St. James Palace to Buckingham Palace to military music, dressed in their famous tunics and busbies. If the Changing of the Guard is not taking place, you will still stop at Buckingham Palace for photos. Next you will visit the historic Tower of London where you'll gain fascinating insights into the history of this Royal Palace and fortress. Ample time will be given to view the Crown Jewels and the White Tower and to wander around this imposing fortress. Then enjoy a private River Thames cruise and see top attractions such as Houses of Parliament, London Eye, Shakespeare’s Globe, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London. To round off the day, enjoy a delicious cream tea at The Georgian Restaurant at Harrods. Your cream tea includes home-baked English scones served with clotted cream and preserves, choice of tea from Harrods own tea gardens plus a glass of sparkling wine. The tour ends here leaving you the rest of the afternoon to explore the world’s most famous department store.

Good tour, really well organised

The tour was very well organised. One minus is that you get completely bombarded with information. You also have to stand up for too long at the private entrance to the Tower of London, which leads to a lack of time later. Lunch was the same, too stress, the quality was great but you couldn't enjoy it. I'd like to ask the organisers: please incorporate Big Ben into the photo shooting of Westminter Abbey, it's right next door! All the same I highly recommend the tour.

The guide did not let us watch the actual changing of the guards just the parade. There is no proper turn over from our city tour guide from our guide going to harrods. When we got to the place where the guide going to Harrods was suppose to be there he was not there so my family and I went o Harrods by ourselves by taking a cab. VERY DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE

FRUSTRATING

PASSENGERS WERE NOT PREVIOUSLY IDENTIFIED, THERE WAS NO SNACK AS DESCRIBED ON THE VOUCHER. REQUEST FULL REFUND OF PAID AMOUNT. The experience was really bad!
