Buckingham Palace and Changing of the Guard

Tower of London and Crown Jewels
During its 1000 year history this impressive fortress has been a Royal Palace, prison, mint and even a zoo! Be dazzled by the Cullinan diamonds and the spectacular Kohi–i–Noor at the Crown Jewels.

Exclusive feature
ATTACK THE TOWER – Join a Yeoman Warder (‘Beefeater’) for an exclusive and very different view of the famous Tower of London on this guided tour. You will hear the story of the peasants’ revolt and attack on the Tower of 1381, the military cunning used to ensure the safety of the Monarch within, and how the Tower’s very architecture protects it from attack.

River Thames Boat Ride
Setting off from the Tower of London, take to the water on a River Thames boat ride and enjoy a tour of the London sights as you head towards the beautiful Greenwich.

Walking Tour of Greenwich
Explore the quaint beauty of Greenwich on this professionally guided walking tour, covering the iconic tea clipper Cutty Sark and the Old Royal Naval College, designed by Christopher Wren.

After the walking tour, get back on board the River Boat and take in more of the city sights as you sail towards Central London. Choose to alight at either The London Eye or The Shard, both icons of London and very centrally located.

This tour will finish at approximately 5:30pm, when you get off the boat.

  • The complimentary hotel pick-up service will not be operating from 1st April 2017, guests will have to make their own way to Golden Tours Visitor Centre in Victoria.

Some confusion at the start. Info states we were to meet at Bus stop 3 and it was really Bus stop 1. Morton our guide was informative and went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience.There was no box lunch provided. ( hasn't been in a long time). Hope I didn't pay for that. Was under the impression the river portion was a guided tour in the afternoon. We were crowded on a boat with other passengers on a routine Uber stop and go down the river with no commentary to what we were seeing. Since we arrived by cruise ship at Greenwich, we did not need to return, and the stop was a mere 20min before we had to board another Uber boat to get back to the start. Waste of an afternoon of the only day we had in London. I would not recommend this tour. Paid too much for what the tour consisted of. Also told Viking cruise rep not to recommend this for other passengers.

We very much enjoyed our tour with Mark as tour guide, and many monuments and attractions were included in the day. He was very organized and gave us great suggestions and instructions as to regrouping meeting places. We were thoroughly exhausted at the end from having seen so much!
