    What to Expect
    Your half-day London tour begins in the morning at Victoria Coach Station in city center. Meet your friendly guide and grab a seat in the vintage red double-decker bus, then sit back and take in fantastic views of the city awakening around you. As you ride, hear interesting anecdotes about passing local sites such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey – the venue for every coronation since the 11th century and for 16 royal weddings!

    Next head to the banks of the Thames River, where you’ll get an up-close view of the formidable Tower of London. Built by William the Conquerer in the 11th century, the site has a long and stormy history as a prison and execution site. Before continuing on, hear a bit about the famous Beefeater Guards and the Crown Jewels that are housed in the impenetrable fort.

    At Tower Pier, board a sightseeing boat and grab a seat in the glass-encased saloon or on the open deck. Drift in comfort along the banks of the historic River Thames and discover London’s history through lively audio commentary. Relax as the boat makes a short loop under the London Bridge, passing the Houses of Parliament, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the London Eye.

    After your cruise, hop back on the bus and head to Buckingham Palace to watch the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony. Marvel at the precision and tradition of the ritual, performed by the Queen’s Foot Guard and a military band. Your tour concludes early afternoon near Victoria Railway Station. Upgrade your tour to include a traditional fish and chips lunch at a London pub!

    We dragged ourselves to the Victoria Coach Station early on a rainy Sunday. Don’t worry there is a Starbucks if you need a wake up Coffee. They had the open top vintage bus (on really rainy days they have a closed double decker). Mum (75) couldn’t negotiate the stair to the top

    An EXCELLENT value for money tour for families / couples / or single. Simply this tour will suit all and everyone. What made this event memorable was the tour guide, and this is Gavin with a G, NOT Kevin with a K. Gavin used his obvious knowledge as a 5th generation Londoner
