The London Day Tours are essential to any visitor wanting to truly discover western Europe's largest city.
The tour takes you to the main sightseeing locations of both Royal London and the eastern City of London, including many of the hidden streets and squares which the tour buses miss.
Unlike other tours, this is not just an orientation service with free time "to wander". Our tours are fully escorted with your own professional tour guide so that you never miss a beat. With your own chauffeur there are no parking problems or walking long distances to see the sights. The curbside service stops right by each attraction: there is no better way to avoid delays and help make the most of your valuable sightseeing time.
Your private London Magical Tours team will take you on a fascinating look at the capital, with stops being made at all the major sights for you to go out on walking guided tours with your own London expert to truly enjoy your day.
Forget parking problems as your chauffeur driven vehicle stops right next to the London sights away from the masses, leaving your guide free to take you out to share anecdotes and stories about London past and present.
Enjoy a guided visit to the world famous Changing of the Guard Ceremony** and discover over 1000 years of history with guided tours of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the City of Wesminster, followed by an introduction to the original eastern City of London.
The 5 hour London Day Tour covers all the sights of the 3 hour London Half Day Tour but also offers an introduction to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, additional little secret extras and a short refreshment break for lunch/shopping.
