Ride through central London aboard a classic red double-decker bus to see some of the city's most renowned landmarks and attractions. Then, sail down the River Thames on a relaxing cruise. After taking in the sights from the water, head over to Buckingham Palace to catch all the pomp and pageantry of the Changing of the Guard ceremony.

Jump aboard a splendidly restored double-decker Routemaster bus, an English icon from the 1950s, and set off through the city streets. Gaze out at views of Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and the London Eye as you ride along, and then by the bustle of Trafalgar Square, the modern architecture of The Shard, and the instantly recognizable span of Tower Bridge. Stop to snap photos of Westminster Abbey, where royal coronations have been held since the 11th century. If you have opted for the afternoon tour, you also have a photo stop at the Tower of London.

Next, swap the bus for a boat as you set off on a cruise down the Thames. Pass beneath Tower Bridge and London Bridge, and the Tower of London. Spot historical landmarks like Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and see the obelisk known as Cleopatra's Needle rising from the urban landscape. Step back onto shore and make your way to Buckingham Palace, where your tour concludes at the perfect location for watching the famous Changing of the Guard outside the residence of Her Majesty the Queen.
