Full description
Immerse yourself in the history of the Royal Family and Experience the best of London in just 4 hours, including the Tower of London and a cruise along the Thames River, on a walking tour with an expert private guide. Choose from a small, shared group tour or a private tour.

Begin at the Tower of London where you will explore this 900-year-old castle. Learn about the kings and queens who lived and died in the Tower, as well as its role as a fortress, prison, zoo, and observatory. The highlight of the tour is viewing the famous Crown Jewels, where your guide will tell you about the many attempts to steal these beautiful diamonds.

Next, travel along the Thames on a river cruise and look at some impressive sights, including Tower Bridge and the London Eye, finally docking in Westminster. Here, you will see the Houses of Parliament - the home of the British government, and the magnificent Big Ben.

Continue to see the outside of Buckingham Palace, the home of Queen Elizabeth II, where you might witness the Changing of the Guards ceremony. A short walk on, you will come to the exterior of the beautiful Westminster Abbey, where every English king and queen for the last 1,000 years has received their coronation, and where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married.
