Description

Enjoy a prime view of the Changing of the Guard, and learn about the history and pageantry behind the iconic ceremony. After this quintessential London experience, delight in the rare opportunity to enter Buckingham Palace and hear about palace life, residents, furnishings, history, and traditions.

Your royal London experience begins with the Changing of the Guard. Your excellent viewing position allows you to see the entire ceremony, and the fascinating commentary from your guide provides insight into the history behind the ceremony.

Afterward, seize the rare opportunity to enter Buckingham Palace—open only 2 months each year—to marvel at sparkling chandeliers, intriguing furnishings, and some of the greatest treasures of the royal collection. Entrance to the royal residence is limited, but your groups' access is guaranteed.

My friend thought our guide Marnie was great. Going inside Buckingham Palace was great. No five star rating as the changing of the guard part of this tour was a bad joke. We saw 1.5 minutes of them as they marched by. Saw nothing of the actual change itself. Save your money and just get the Buckingham Palace tour (if you're lucky enough to be in London for the 10 weeks out of the year that it's open to the public) and get a good spot yourself on a separate day if you want to catch a glimpse of the changing of the guard.

Amber was the BEST tour guide that I have ever had. She was entertaining, knowledgeable, and friendly. 2 thumbs up.
