    What to Expect
    Depart from Victoria Coach Station and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach. Embark on a panoramic tour of Kensington Palace and enjoy insightful narration from state-of-the-art Vox headphones. See an array of legendary landmarks en route to Trafalgar Square and then marvel at iconic sights like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament as you arrive at Parliament Square, home to a series of statues commemorating influential historical figures. 

    Next, travel to the magnificent Buckingham Palace, official residence of the Queen of England, to see a colorful Changing of the Guard ceremony. Watch beautifully dressed guards march to drumbeats from a military band and then disembark your coach at Trafalgar Square for your idyllic Thames River cruise. 

    Make your own way to one of two embarking points at either Tower Pier or Westminster Pier and climb aboard your awaiting boat. Take a seat in a choice of enticing areas and gaze out of the window as you glide past magnificent landmarks like St. Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and the Tower of London. Listen to live commentary for a holistic picture of the city’s history and refresh with onboard snacks and drinks (own expense). 

    When your cruise concludes, return to your original docking point and make your own way back to your centrally located accommodation.

    We had an excellent tour with James (tour guide) and Mark (driver). James is clearly extremely knowledgeable about London, and Mark navigated what looked like treacherous driving to me. James also very politely told some noisy tourists to stop talking. Highly recommended!
