What to Expect
London Vintage Bus & Boat Tour
See the highlights of London via 2 classic modes of transport on this half-day adventure. First, you will enjoy great views of Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, and the London Eye as you meander through the historic streets on board a vintage double-decker bus.
Continue on and see St. Paul’s Cathedral - Sir Christopher Wren’s architectural masterpiece, where Admirals Nelson and Wellington are buried, and where Princess Diana and Prince Charles got married. Proceed to the Tower of London, built nearly 1,000 years ago during the reign of William the Conqueror.
Home to the Crown Jewels, the Tower is protected by the famous Beefeaters, and the imposing palace has been used as a fortress and a prison throughout its history. Your guide will take you to Traitors' Gate, where prisoners entered the Tower for the last time.
Next, take a short river cruise along the Thames, passing Shakespeare’s Globe, Cleopatra’s Needle, and London Bridge, before arriving at Westminster Pier.
