The tour was very enjoyable, Thought we were going to pass Kennington Palace, but was aware of Road closures. Would have liked more time to get out and see the wonderful buildings and land marks but assume a morning tour is not long enough. It did give us an insight into what we found interesting and will use this as a guide to visit these places more fully. Would certainly recommend as coach very comfortable and guide very knowledgeable. Many thanks
I felt comfortable on this tour. We were mostly on the bus and visited different districts, buildings and sights. Good to get a great overview. We are held 2 times to watch a park and the changing of the guards of the riders. In retrospect, I should have opted for the extended tour, which also includes the afternoon.
Recommend a Sunday tour for tidbits of trivia. Our guide was awesome and kept us well informed during the changing of the guard. Fun facts and history came alive.
THEY DID NOT TAKE US TO THE CHANGE OF GUARD !!! I STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED
Book this tour it gets you up close to the changing of the beautiful horse guards!
