Why We Love This Holiday:

holiday overview

Highlights / General details

With smaller groups, a route along the River Thames and a focus on the people's history, this tour is the perfect complement to your time in London. Our tour guides offer legend and fact about a city that has united against Great Plagues, Fire and War, while developing into the cradle of modern civilization and commerce. For lunch, we invite you to wander through the aromas of London's oldest and largest food market, the Borough Market (cost not included) before cycling across Tower Bridge and embarking on an incredible adventure.


The London Eye - Despite being widely ridiculed when it first opened, the London Eye is now one of the most recognizable and loved structures in London. On a clear day, it offers you a truly unparalleled, panoramic view of the city.


St. Paul's Cathedral - St. Paul’s Cathedral is the defining masterpiece of Sir Christopher Wren’s architectural genius. The ground upon which it is built has been considered sacred for thousands of years. In more modern times, this is where the world mourned the loss of Sir Winston Churchill and celebrated the fairytale wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. It was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War but was saved by a courageous group of volunteers called the Church Watch.


Shakespeare’s Globe - Have you ever used the expressions: to kill with kindness, one fell swoop, or dead as a doornail? Those and hundreds of other expressions and words (excellent, critical, lonely to name a few!) are attributed to one of the greatest Brits that ever lived. In the shadows of the historically accurate recreation of the Globe Theatre, learn about the less trumpeted side of William Shakespeare and his direct impact on our 21st century lives.


Borough Market - A hidden, culinary gem in London, with a history going back 900 years, Borough Market offers the finest food from all over the world. We’ll break for about an hour, giving you time to explore on your own, grab a snack from any number of food vendors, and still enjoy a pint at a local English pub with your guide.


Tower Bridge - One of the most stunning and iconic bridges in the world, Tower Bridge was built nearly 60 years into the reign of Queen Victoria, and during the height of the British Empire. You will have the opportunity to take photos at its most spectacular vantage point then actually get the chance to cycle across it.


The Tower of London - Originally built by William the Conqueror, this World Heritage site has been used as a royal residence, prison, observatory, treasury, mint, and even a zoo. The top of the list of recognizable prisoners includes: Saint Thomas More, Sir Walter Raleigh, Guy Fawkes and Anne Boleyn. Thames Clipper Boat Ride - After cycling along the South Bank of the river, we cruise back into Central London in style on a Thames Clipper.


Also See... Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, the River Thames, the Tate Modern, London Bridge, Southwark Cathedral, the HMS Belfast, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.
