See the best that royal London has to offer in a single morning! Begin your day at the famed and somewhat 'infamous' Tower - former prison and execution site of three Queens of England. Be among the first to enter the Jewel House and view the spectacular crown jewels, which have been held here and locked up for safekeeping every night for the last 600 years. During your visit you will also be able to see the famous white tower, where it is said that the 'Princes in the Tower' were held and supposedly murdered by their Uncle Richard III to claim the throne from their father, King Edward IV. Then step aboard a relaxing river shuttle as the tour heads up the Thames. Enjoy the sights as your guide points out major landmarks as you coast by. Arrive at the embankment and follow your guide on a short stroll to see the changing of the guards. This world-famous ceremony takes place either at Buckingham Palace or at Horse Guards Parade, depending on the day. Be in a prime position to enjoy the best views at this crowded event. Your guide will bring this experience to life with colorful commentary regarding the history and pageantry behind the ceremony as the Queen's Foot Guards, with their red tunics and unmistakable bearskin hats, march to Buckingham Palace. (Please note that this experience is subject to weather conditions.) Tour ends at the Buckingham Palace, the residence of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh.
