    Changing of the Guard
    Stop: 45 minutes -
    The epitome of British pomp and military ceremony for which Britain is famous around the world. Elite soldiers from the military have been dutifully guarding the Monarch since 1660. The 7 regiments that guard the monarch, known as the 'Household Division', are so devoted to their duty that they will famously not acknowledge or allow themselves to be distracted by the public. During the ceremony, immaculately turned out guards are accompanied by marching bands playing a rousing mix of military music, whose origins dates back to the morale-boosting songs played before the British military went into battle.

    We took the 3 hr tour where we expected to hear relevant commentary regarding the ‘Royal’ places listed for the tour. We acknowledge that we saw a number of ‘Royal’ areas/palaces etc however our guide Anthony was too busy talking about himself that a number of known significant

    Tour was for Sunday August 4th and there was a 100km bike race (Prudential Bike Race) which has happened every year since 2012 so it obviously is a 'known' factor. Streets and bridges were closed and we were unable to do the tour as planned but not informed ahead of time. I

    Including this one, We have had 3 tours up until this point and out of all of them, this was the most boring. Really did not learn a whole lot from the guide. Difficult to see or take pictures. Luckily we were able to get off bus twice to take pictures but felt rushed. Not

    We booked a 3.5 hour tour with Evan Evans on our first full day in London. We had a fantastic tour guide - Debbie Bardon, who had a passion for the city of London. A combination of walking and tourning on a double decker bus got us around the city. We saw several parks,

    Hi there! Thank so much for taking the time out to provide us with feedback on your tour - it truly is invaluable as it gives us an idea of what our guests enjoy most and also allows us to continually improve our services and products - providing our guests with memorable experiences are what we pride ourselves on here at Evan Evans Tours. We're delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful experience with the lovely Debbie, and sorry to hear that you weren't able to check everything off on your list, unfortunately in a bustling city like London it can be very challenging to have an exact idea of what is and isn't possible to do on any given day due to the sheer number of events that take place and last minute changes and additions. I hope this didn't dampen your trip, we would love to host you on some of our other tours if you decide to visit again! Kind regards, Team Evan Evans
