Would not recommend London Day Tour Including London Eye tour. It just isn't worth the money for the following reasons:
1. St Pauls Cathedral - I thought this was supposed to be a guided tour, but read the fine print...Enjoy time inside St Pauls Cathedral. Our guide gave a few facts and then told us to meet in 45 minutes.
2. Changing of the Guard ceremony - I was expecting our guide to tell us what we were about to see but instead told us to find a spot in the crowd and meet back at the bus at 12:15. Mind you, the changing ends at 12:15 and by the time we arrived around 10:30, all you could see was the top of their hats moving. Big disappointment.
3. Lunch - read the other reviews so you know that you are getting a cheese sandwich with no meat. Not much of a lunch.
4. Tower of London - Our guide was able to have a Yeomen Warders speak with us which was the highlight, albeit 5 minutes, of the entire tour. As other reviewers stated, not enough time. We only had time to see the jewels and leave.
5. Thames River - read the fine print...River Thames Boat Ride. This is not a tour but a ride on public river transportation. I wish i read that before booking this tour because I was expecting
6. Our tour departed the boat at Greenwich. Our guide tool us around the area pointing out the Cutty Sark and Royal Observatory. Then waited 27 minutes in line to take the boat to the London Eye. Could have done without the boat rides and Greenwich and spent more time at the Tower of London.
7. The London Eye - we were given a voucher that could be used at anytime.
Tour was supposed to end at 6pm but we arrived at the London Eye at 5:40.
Would not recommend this tour and ended up going back to Buckingham Palace days latter so we could actually see the changing. This tour was simply not worth the money and could have done the same on our own, spent more time where we would have liked, and saved money.
