The original Tour

This was a very comfortable way to see the sights of London. I am so thankful my friend recommended it. There are so many sites to see that I am glad I only bought one optional tour on the London eye. I almost purchased a tour for the Big Ben Clocktower. However I would not have had time for that one also. In March 2013 the changing of the guard at Buckingham palace is on even days at 11:30. Boy what a crowd. If you want a good view you should be there early and I read that the best of view is from the statue across the road. By the time I went down to Buckingham palace for the changing of the guard and then took the ride on the London Eye, walked around the Parliament buildings and West Minister Abby and took the boat cruise on the river I was pretty well done. Then it was nice to ride the bus and see the other sights of the town.

The arrangements were very easy to make both online and on the street. The buses were very comfortable but the best view is on top. It can be pretty cold up there but there are some covered seats
