Get around London and see the city's most iconic landmarks with this combination of a hop-on hop-off bus tour, a river cruise, and a themed walking tour!

Make the most of the hop-on hop- off bus to get to the places you choose to visit. The itineraries include lots of conveniently placed stops for exploring famous parts of London.

The double-decker bus will take you to the most emblematic monuments of the English capital: see Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Saint Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, and many more. A knowledgable guide will be on-hand to tell you all about the history of the city.

You'll also get the chance to see the capital from another angle with a cruise on the River Thames, during which you can admire many of London's monuments from the water.

Complete your trip to London by going on a themed walking tour. You will be introduced to the history of London and the royal family.
