Stroll past monument after monument for the best photos and views of this stunning city. Don’t just wander aimlessly through a town so full of stories from gigantically important historical moments, follow your guide to hear about world-changing events and little local anecdotes that even many Londoners never knew. Be the envy of all other tourists as your guide ensures you have the best spot to view the Changing of the Guard, skip-the-line-tickets to the Tower of London and a river cruise all included in the tour.
Uncover the stories of legendary figures in British History from Nelson’s victories over Napolean in his iconic Trafalgar square, to Churchill’s defiance of the Nazi as you passed his wartime bunker and the house of the Prime minister. See the center of British Politics at Westminster and follow in the footsteps of royals past and present at the place many are married and all are crowned. March alongside the world-famous queen’s guard and their big band, dressed in their bright red tunics, witnessing the changing of the guard. See the home of the queen before jumping on a river cruise and passing all of London’s landmarks in style as your boat takes you to the infamous dungeon, prison, and castle of the Tower of London. Your LivTours guide will escort you to the entrance where you will enjoy skip-the-line-access to the tower. Join the Yeomen Warders, aka Beefeaters, for a tour inside the tower. These Royal guards know the tower like the back of their hand and are still to this day the only ones authorized to guide inside. See the crown jewels, learn about the mysterious ravens that guard the tower, uncover stories of execution betrayal, and rebellion in this real medieval fortress. All in one day!

- The British authorities reserves the right to change the modify or cancel the Changing of the Guards ceremony without notice in the case of wet weather and other official events. Under these conditions, the British army usually will not give final notice of cancellation until 10 minutes prior to the planned time. In such cases, your guide will modify the tour to include an alternative Parade where possible, and share more highlights of Westminster area.
- In the case of heavy rain, you will see a wet change (guards marching without music).
- For the Changing of the Guard ceremony, we do not stand by the Buckingham palace gates. The crowds swarm there hours in advance, only to find they can only see the very end of the parade all while being crushed by the masses. Instead, we take you to the best spots only the locals know, and actually walk along with the parade! This way you see the absolute most there is to see, and it’s a much more enjoyable experience.
- We highly recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes for this tour.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.

Excellent Full Day Tour
"Jamie was an amazing tour guide, and was very knowledge about the history of London. He answered all of our questions, and he was easy to be around which was nice as it was just my husband and I on the tour. It was a rainy day, but Jamie was very flexible with the schedule. I highly recommend the full day London tour with Jamie and Live Tours!"

Great tour with a wonderful Tour Guide!
"We loved our private tour of London's highlights with Alex, which included our big family of 3 adults and 5 kids ages 7-11. We saw so many of the key London sites during our tour which was perfect for the short period of time we spent in London. Alex knew a lot about London’s history, so he was able to tell us great stories, answers our questions, and give us advice for the rest of our trip. even though tour had a lot of walking, we were always in the right place at the right time, and it was never too much for the kids. As we enjoyed the entire tour, our favorite part of the tour was the Tower of London, which included the Beefeater tour and seeing the Crown Jewels. Make sure you have enough time to explore the Tower before it closes. We were not able to see the Westminster Abbey, because it was closed the day our of tour. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone who is looking into it, and if Alex is your tour guide, you’ll be in great hands and have a fantatsic time!"
