St. Paul's Cathedral - Exclusive Feature

Towering high over the City of London, the magnificent St Paul’s Cathedral is widely considered to be Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece. Enter the Quire and marvel at the beautiful mosaics inside. (Due to church services, there is no guidance inside the cathedral on Sundays).

Buckingham Palace and Changing of the Guard

A mass of red tunics, bearskins, and Buckingham Palace - an unforgettable experience! Observe The King’s Foot Guard in their regal uniforms march alongside the military band to the Palace and witness the famous ceremony that is the Changing of the Guard. (When this ceremony is not available, you will visit the Horseguards Parade instead).

The Tower of London & Crown Jewels

Meet the Beefeaters -

Exclusive feature

Have your tour with one of the Yeoman Warders and hear what it is like to live within the walls of the Tower. These 'guardians' were once responsible for watching the prisoners of the Tower - they will entertain you with tales of intrigue, imprisonment, execution, torture, and much more.

First of all 5 out 5 to tour guide .. her name was IRA if i m not mistaken.. well informed, active on the toes and she knew a lot about monrach history… we missed change of gaurds due to queens platinum jubilee for that i i think the price was a bit high for £130 but overall it was a very good experience. And i had great company as well meeting people from different cultures. One kore thing to mention. I was expecting hop on hop off buses for better and clear view. But they used coaches instead.

Our guide Tish was a hit!!!!

Day went well. Pick-up at nearby hotel was practical. Definitely a good idea to book the lunch along with the tour. Best part was Tish (our guide). Looking forward to having a tour with her again someday. What a great sense of humor!!! We were a big group - 15 in total - and everyone enjoyed the day. Way to go Tish!!! One small glitch - website claims that we would have lunch in Covent Gardens - incorrect information!!! We ate lunch at a Medieval restaurant near the river. Definitely include the lunch with the booking.

Our guide Morton was sensational. He guided us past all the queues, gave us the best taunt at the “Change of Gards” and organized everything very well. His expertise is “second to none” and he also speaks a little German, which my little daughter really liked
