About the Tour

If you come to London for a few days and do not know where to start touring this magnificent and at the same time gigantic city, this tour is for you!

It will be an incredible and very complete walk where those who have little time will be taken to the most iconic on a 7-hour walk (6 hours plus an hour for lunch break) including the Changing of the Guard, as long as the official agenda allows.

From Trafalgar Square, considered the central point of London, we will cross the Admiralty Arch to make way for the ceremonial part of the Westminster district. Center of the monarchy and the nobility from its origins, our tour will visit aristocratic residences and royal palaces while we will tell you the story of the illustrious members of the English monarchy. Whenever the official agenda allows, we will observe the changing of the guard and reveal when and why this ritual began.

We will discover what changed the religious direction of the country during one of the most renowned monarchies in English history and how this change encouraged the arrival of palaces and mansions in Westminster.

After strolling through one of the most beautiful royal parks in London, we will reach the center of power: Westminster Abbey, the Supreme Court of Justice and the Palace of Westminster, better known as the Parliament with its internationally misnamed Tower "Big Ben " From there we will approach the River Thames for the first time, the commercialization and navigation axis that will allow London to become the prosperous and cosmopolitan city since the time of the Romans, to appreciate beautiful views, the famous London Eye and continue walking Until lunch break.

We will resume the journey to go to the origins, where curious dragons will welcome us to the City of London. Prepare to discover an area of ​​architectural contrasts between the most modern and oldest buildings in the city. From the Royal Courts of Justice, we will advance on Fleet Street, where we will begin to glimpse the St. Paul's Cathedral with its emblematic dome. Then we will visit the power center of La City, where the Bank of England and the City Hall are located, to continue the tour of contrasts with the Leadenhall Market and the skyscrapers of the finance center.

Thanks to the Monument of the great fire we will discover the reason why London lost its medieval historical center and how thanks to its economic power it managed to rebuild itself very quickly. And at the end of our walk we will return to the river to be able to contemplate a unique and wonderful view of the London Bridge, the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London with its 1000 years of history!

El tour con Explora Londres, ha superado nuestras expectativas, veníamos de visita por poco tiempo y hemos logrado conocer los principales lugares turísticos acompañados de Andres que fue nuestro guía, un joven muy entusiasta, que nos explico sobre la historia, cultura y política de esta hermosa ciudad. Desde el momento de la reserva todo esta muy claro, se recibe un correo con la dirección para encontrarte con el guía, y también inicia muy puntual, se recorre la ciudad según lo especificado en la reserva. Muy recomendado!!!! Gracias por todo Andres.
