Guide (Trudy) was the best ever!! Great day seeing and learning the city. Wish the changing on the guard was at Buckingham other than seeing the guard exit the street. Perfect other than that.

We only had one day but this tour was absolutely perfect. Our tour guide was Trudy and she took very good care of us. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Two thumbs up for Trudy!! Tour included a Thames boat tour and admission to the London Eye. Perfect choice for anyone with a very short visit.

If not a nasty weather it was very good. More specific info on location of the bus in the morning would
be helpful.
