Take a four-hour tour of London to go back in time. A trip down the River Thames and a ride on an old double-decker Routemaster bus are part of the combined sightseeing tour. From one of the London Eye's panoramic pods, you can enjoy stunning views of the city at the end of your excursion.

Take a trip around the city on an old double-decker bus. Pass historic landmarks like Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament. Admire the iconic St. Paul's Cathedral designed by Sir Christopher Wren.

Take a short trip along the River Thames, putting land to water, and keep an eye out for Shakespeare's Globe, HMS Belfast, London Bridge, and other landmarks. Rejoin the bus and travel toward Buckingham Palace, where the British royal family resides, once you have reached dry land.

On the morning tour, you'll get there in time to watch the famous Changing of the Guard, in which soldiers in their famous uniforms march to military music. You will have to make do with a photo stop at the palace in case there is no Changing of the Guard.

The London Eye, the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel, offers spectacular views of London's rooftops as you complete your London excursion.

Take a seat in one of the 32 high-tech glass capsules, which rotate completely in about 30 minutes. Take in Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and Big Ben from a unique and elevated vantage point.

A great way to visit streets and attractions in London that we would never had the time to see on our own. Our guide was awesome and informative.

The tour was great fun. Started with the bus tour where you get off the bus every now and then. The guide was also very funny and told nice stories. Then the tour and finally the London Eye. Really recommended. The complete tour is fun to do, especially if you don't know London yet, because you get a good picture of the city in a few hours because you come to different places.

Me and my family went on this tour 2 adults and 2 children (9+15). I’m so glad we had booked this tour it was really exceptional, we all enjoyed it very much. The tour man was great he was very good at his job. Sorry forgot his name. The cruise down the river Thames was also amazing the guy on there made us all very welcome and pointed out all the different place down by the river. Amazing. Finally we had the London eye booked on our tour. (Don’t be put off by the queue) the queue was really long but went down in no time. This was an amazing experience. I’d highly recommend this tour it’s great. Thanks again for an amazing experience.

Was a great trip. The guide was great, gave a lot of information. There were many sights to see and the short trip down the Thames was nice too. Everything was super organized. The ride in the LondonEye was also great, no waiting. Only the place of departure was unfortunately wrongly described, it started at a different gate. It was a bit stressful to find out, but it worked out in the end.
