What you can expect

Zip around London town like a local on one of the city's iconic double-decker buses. Hop off to explore the city's historic sights and iconic architecture on foot, and glide down the River Thames on a sightseeing cruise to immerse yourself in the rich history and culture of the English capital.

Settle into a seat in the comfortable interior or on the open-air top deck of a double-decker bus and set off to tour the city at your own pace. Hop on and off at world famous landmarks including the Tower of London, Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey. Alternatively, stay on for the entire loop, enjoying complimentary Wi-Fi on board and listening to engaging commentary as you pass by the London Eye, the riverfront Houses of Parliament, and impressive St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Get a different perspective on the bustling city with a leisurely cruise along the River Thames, admiring the city skyline and listening to on board commentary for a dose of English history—and humor! From there, stretch your legs on a royal themed guided walk from Trafalgar Square.
