Description

Looking for a special VIP tour of London? You've found it. See the Changing of the Guard, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and more, as well as taking a cool cruise up the Thames. The best way to see a lot of London in just one morning!

You might get goosebumps hearing about the former prison and execution site of not one, not two, but three Queens of England at the Tower of London - perhaps unsurprisingly rumoured to be haunted. You'll be one of the first to step inside, so there will be no annoying crowds or elbows as you get up close to the crown jewels!

Find out what treasures have been kept here for 600 years. What's the story behind those sparkling orbs and swords, and which special events have meant they've left those glass cases?

On a relaxing river shuttle up the Thames, you'll see the Houses of Parliament and more on the way to watch the Changing of the Guard at either Buckingham Palace or the Horse Guards Parade. You'll have a great spot to watch the royal action and learn the significance of this important cultural event.

Your tour will end at Buckingham Palace, home to Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Snap a photo of the famous balcony, where the royal family appears during major events. We dare you not to practice your royal wave!

This tour is the best way to spend a morning in London – it's educational and a whole lot of fun.

I took my 8 year old nephew on this particular excursion with me today and what a fantastic day we had, our guide Nathan was extremely knowledgeable, professional and had a way with him that Kept you gripped on the information he Was giving whole time, the Beefeaters were both friendly and entertaining, we learned so much, the opening ceremony was such a pleasure to watch, literally from start to finish was fantastic I could go on and on about the day but my suggestion would be to book it up and see for yourself....YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED, a day we will both never forget-thank you
