Some of London's most celebrated features are those relating to the Royal Family. Visit some of the most popular landmarks on this convenient tour. Step inside the inspiring St Paul's Cathedral, observe the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony and visit the State Rooms of Buckingham Palace.

A tour of London's famous sites and attractions is a great way to get your bearings in the city. Pause at the striking Westminster Abbey and snap a picture of its grand façade. Proceed inside the architectural wonder of St Paul's Cathedral, a mainstay of London for over 300 years.

Then it's time for a quintessential British formality, the Changing of the Guard. Marvel at the pomp and pageantry of the display by the Household Cavalry – adorned with their tall bear-skin hats and ruby-red tunics – all set to the tune of a military band. Afterwards, it's time to glimpse what's behind the splendid gates; walk through Buckingham Palace and observe its lavish interior. The State Rooms are open for just 8 weeks a year, so relish this golden chance to see the 19 rooms the Queen uses to entertain.

Stroll along the 155-foot (47 m) picture gallery, stand in the Royal Ballroom and even see the Throne Room. Exit through the idyllic, scenic south garden, the hosting space for the monarchy's famous outdoor tea parties.

Our tour guide, Maggie, was excellent. She was upbeat, interesting, and informative. We arrived at all activities on time. It was exciting to see the Changing of the Guard, but most impressive was Buckingham Palace. It is hard to believe that people actually live amongst such history and wealth. It should be noted that this was a very strenuous tour as it involved a lot of walking, but it was well worth it.

We didn’t get to see changing of the guard due to August schedule. And the replacement view of the mews as an alternative was not even provided. Overall the guide was more like an absent minded professor and often appeared hurried and unorganized. Definitely would not recommend.

St. Paul’s was informative but we didn’t really see the changing of the guards just the new guards marching in. The info given to us was that the tour ends at 12 noon. We didn’t get into Buckingham Palace until 11:45. We had 2 hours to look around but didn’t get to use them because we had to catch a train at 3:30.
