Full description
Travel back in time on a 4-hour tour of London. The combined sightseeing tour includes a ride on a vintage double-decker Routemaster bus and a short trip along the River Thames. End your excursion with spectacular views of the city from one of the panoramic pods of the London Eye.

Head off for a tour of the city onboard a vintage double-decker bus. Pass historic attractions such as the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and the Tower of London. Admire Sir Christopher Wren’s iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Swap land for water and take a short trip along the River Thames, looking out for Shakespeare’s Globe, HMS Belfast, London Bridge, and much more. Back on dry land, re-join the bus and head for Buckingham Palace, home to the British royal family. You will arrive in time to see the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony, as soldiers dressed in their iconic scarlet tunics and busbies march to military music.

Complete your London excursion with spectacular views across London’s rooftops as you enjoy a full circuit of the London Eye, the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel. Settle into one of the 32 high-tech glass capsules, which take approximately 30 minutes to completely revolve, and see Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey from a unique, elevated perspective. At the end of your London Eye circuit, you are perfectly placed to enjoy the new live-action, multisensory 4D show, and to visit the Sea Life London Aquarium.
