Full description

Take in some of London’s most famous sights during a day filled with a private tour of the Tower of London, a river cruise on the Thames, and a visit to St. Paul's Cathedral. Along the way see city highlights including the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

The morning part of the tour begins with a visit to St. Paul’s Cathedral, where you enter as its doors open. Listen to the 17th-century organ that Mendelssohn once played, see medieval relics in the crypt below, and visit the tombs of famous historical figures.

On Sundays, when viewing is restricted, you can enter the cathedral for one of the services. After leaving St. Paul’s Cathedral, the tour heads to Buckingham Palace, the London residence of the Queen, to watch the changing of the guard. If the changing of the guard is not taking place you’ll still go to Buckingham Palace for a photo stop. In the afternoon the tour continues with a visit to the Tower of London, built in 1066 by William the Conqueror. Your guide will regale you with 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.  Next, enjoy a guided private boat trip on the River Thames and admire excellent views of Tower Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral, London Bridge, and Shakespeare's Globe from the river.  The spectacular finish to the day’s tour is a flight on the London Eye.

Our tour was the day after Her Late Majesty’s funeral and We had Frank as a guide. The tour was exceptional!! Frank took us on a tour of all the locations the funeral procession had been through. His stories were entertaining and he was hilarious. I took my mother in law to London for the funeral. We were a block away and missed seeing anything however the tour with Frank made her feel like she was there. This tour was worth every penny and then some!! Thank you Frank!!

The trip was good but felt a bit shortchanged as the cruise was with uber boats not private. We just got onto a boat that had many others on it and we had to find seats in different places and some families had to separate. There was no commentary from the guide obviously so its just getting on qn uber boat and then drop off at your stop. Would advise booking this separately maybe. Also the bus was like the national express bus not those open rooftop buses for tourists so that was also on the downside. The guide was nice and friendly, Derek if I remember well

I chose this tour due to the emphasis on air conditioned coach tour yet that wasn't the case. I appreciate most things to see in London must be carried out on foot but with my father not being great on his legs our trip soon turned in to one that had to be abandoned. The requirement for people to be able footed was soon made aware to us and we were not able to keep with the pace and got left behind on several occasions so sadly we left the tour with half of it remaining.
