Capital of the United Kingdom, home of the royal family, and a cosmopolitan city at the crossroads of history, London has much to offer both seasoned travelers and first-time visitors. Seeing the best of what this bustling metropolis has to offer shouldn't consume your entire vacation, however. That's why we've designed a quick yet comprehensive walking tour of London's most popular attractions.

See the best that royal London has to offer in a single morning. Begin your day at the somewhat infamous Tower of London, former prison and execution site of three ill-fated queens. Our early morning arrival means you will be among the first to see the spectacular crown jewels, which have called the Tower of London their home for the last 600 years. These magnificent orbs, swords, rings, and of course, crowns and sceptres are the official regalia and vestments used by the Sovereign of the United Kingdom during the coronation ceremony and other events. We'll also visit the White Tower, where Richard III allegedly held and murdered his nephews as part of a scheme to usurp the throne from their father, Edward IV.

Then we'll change tack and go on a relaxing cruise up the Thames. Enjoy the ride as your guide points out all the major landmarks. We'll get off at the Embankment and take a short walk to see the Changing of the Guard, which takes place either at Buckingham Palace or Horse Guards Parade, depending on the day of the week. Your guide will make sure you are in a prime position to see this hugely popular and very crowded event, while filling you in on the history and pageantry behind the changing of the Queen's foot guards with their red tunics and unmistakable bearskin hats. Please keep in mind that the weather often dictates the schedule for the Changing of the Guard, which does not take place in the rain. Our tour will end at Buckingham Palace, the residence of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh. See the famous balcony where the royal family appears during major events!

This tour is the best way to spend a morning in London, learning and laughing with your local expert.

This tour will end outside Buckingham Palace.
