Full description
Your journey starts by Kensington gardens. The first stop in this beautiful Royal park is Kensington Palace. Next, you cycle to the Royal Albert Hall, London's most classic venue, built to memorialize Prince Albert and the now the host for everything from the Miss World contest to rock concerts. Feel free to do your own "Last night of the proms" or stand back and listen to one of your guide's anecdotes and stories about the British Empire. You then follow the "rotten row" and the Serpentine in the amazing Hyde park to the statue of one of England's greatest war heroes. From here, you head downhill on Constitution Hill along the Green park, (the route where Queen Victoria had three assassination attempts on her life) to visit the official residence of the Royal family, Buckingham Palace. Maybe you will be invited in for a cup of tea? Your next stop is Trafalgar Square, right in the heart of London. Find out what happened to Lord Nelson in Trafalgar and all the pigeons that once lived here? Then it is time for 250 meters by foot down to Whitehall, the political center of England. Next up, take some selfies at Big Ben before you go back through the Royal parks to the meeting point which is also the end of the line. But please don´t rush off without challenging your guide with any questions you may have about museums, markets, shopping, sport or other ways to enjoy this fantastic city.

    A great moment under a blue sky and generous sun in the middle of April for my 11-year-old nephew and myself. The opportunity to take the temperature of the place at the start of your stay in London in a fun and dynamic way. A breath of fresh air for us Parisians, it's amazing and so pleasant to enjoy so much nature! Ola was an extra guide through a good historical refreshment (around the royal family, of course) spiced up with his share of anecdotes, all washed down with musical accompaniment!!! We had a great afternoon!!! Thank you !!!!

    I’m a Londoner and have been to a lot of sightseeing tours but this was the best so far. I really enjoyed the wealth of information and fun stories. Our guide (Ola) was very knowledgeable, up to date, easy going and friendly. Its easy to see that he loves his job as a tour guide.. Thanks for the experience and i’ll book the longer tour in a near future.
