Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A bus tour, Tower of London visit, and Thames cruise make this half-day itinerary ideal for the time-pressed.
Greet your guide in Trafalgar Square and climb aboard your comfortable tour bus. Pop in your headphones and listen as your guide begins a captivating commentary of the city.

First, stop at the cathedral of St Paul’s to see Sir Christopher Wren’s architectural masterpiece. Gain insight into the sacred structure that dominates the London skyline, and hear tales of fiery destruction and romantic nuptials before venturing to your next stop.

Arrive at the Tower of London to explore the ancient fortress. Listen as Beefeaters regale you with stories of torture and treason, and visit the glittering Crown Jewels to admire 6,000-year old diamonds and gilded coronation crowns.

Before leaving, receive a ticket for a one-way River Thames sightseeing cruise, from the tower to Westminster Pier. Continue by coach to the stylish City of London, where you'll see the Bank of England and the impressive Mansion House.

On some dates, St Paul’s Cathedral is closed to the public. When the cathedral is closed, the stop will be substituted with a stop for photographs at St Paul's Cathedral and longer time spent at Tower of London instead.

Norma our tour guide was great, she was very knowledgeable and had a dry wit and good personality. The afternoon tour meant that by the time we got to the tower of London the queues to see Crown Jewels were really long, at least 2 hours long so we didn't wait as we didn't want to miss the last ferry. Ferry commentary was really funny which was surprising and pointed out lots of things on the way back. Only 30 min cruise back to London Eye. Good tour when short on time.
