    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and open-top, vintage double-decker bus in central London and settle into the comfortable lower or upper deck.

    Then, set off through London’s handsome streets and keep your camera poised to capture the landmarks. On Christmas Day, the streets are wonderfully quiet and free of the usual traffic, making it the perfect opportunity to admire and appreciate the sights.

    View Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, and see Westminster Abbey and the London Eye as the live onboard guide shares interesting snippets about their history.

    Pause for photos by St. Paul’s Cathedral, a masterpiece by Sir Christopher Wren built between 1675 and 1710. This stunning domed cathedral is the burial place of Admiral Nelson and the Duke of Wellington, and presided over Prince Charles' and Diana Spencer’s wedding in 1981.

    Continue to the Tower of London, the almost 1,000-year-old palace-fortress that now houses the Crown Jewels and is protected by the richly costumed Beefeaters. Learn the history of the fortress, a prison to Anne Boleyn before her beheading in 1536, and see the Traitors Gate, the water gateway entered by many condemned prisoners during Tudor times.

    After your bus tour, disembark and step aboard a comfortable sightseeing boat on the Thames.

    Take a seat and admire the riverside sights as you cruise along the famous waters. The river provides a great perspective over many sights, such as the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and London Bridge.

    As you cruise, savor a delicious Christmas Day lunch. Feast on three courses of classic festive dishes as you soak in the scenery and the celebratory atmosphere on board.

    When it’s time, dock back at the original departure pier in Westminster, where your tour concludes.

    My experience with this company was awful. The first booking was cancelled on the day to demonstrations in the centre of London, the second we had to cancel due to being stuck in a cab for over an hour with road closures - they diverted the trip for customers due to my ringing
