What To Expect

Your tour begins when you greet your guide in Convent Garden, an area shrouded in history. From here, you’ll stroll to iconic attractions such as the Houses of Parliament — home to the famous Big Ben bell — and Churchill’s War Rooms.

As you explore, your guide provides engaging commentary that spans London’s 2,000-year-old history. Wander down Whitehall towards Trafalgar Square and see 10 Downing Street, the residence of the British Prime Minister, before arriving at Buckingham Palace.

Marvel at the elaborate façade of Her Majesty the Queen’s official residence and watch a Changing of the Guard ceremony — a performance steeped in regal tradition.

Finally, make your way the British Museum to visit a carefully curated selection of the museum’s highlights. Observe artifacts that date back to the prehistoric ages and see the world-renowned Rosetta Stone, the key to understanding Egyptian hieroglyphics.

After a comprehensive tour, bid your guide farewell in the British museum and continue exploring independently.
