London's most famous sights in just three facinating hours - including River Thames Cruise

A private walking tour with expert guided commentary of London's most famous sights including a River Thames cruise from the Tower of London right into the heart of Royal London.

Starting by the notorious Tower of London, we take a look at Tower Bridge before catching a Thames River cruise to Westminster and Royal London, watching the City of London unfold as we cruise right into the heart of the nation's capital. You'll see London bridge, the Shard - hear about the river's role in establishing London as a great trading capital, then as we approach Westminster, the sight of the Houses of Parliament with 'Big Ben' will provide a first-class photo opportunity.

Other visual highlights on the walk include - Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the Mall, Trafalgar Square. . . so much to see and talk about.
