The best way to explore your new home after settling into your apartment is to take part in some of the most famous tours that London has to offer. This is a city that is geared for tourists and until you have found your feet, you should experience all that this city has to offer from a tourist perspective. Touring can be done in a number of ways and you will get a different view depending on the tour that you choose.

Bus Tours

London isn’t London until you’ve seen it from the top of a big-red-London-double-decker-bus!  Part of the fabric and history here, you can spend the day enjoying the attractions that this vibrant city has to offer by riding on one of the vintage red buses that our city is famous for. Trundle along the streets while taking in the sights of Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. Gaze in awe at the magnificent edifice of St. Paul’s Cathedral, which is where Princess Diana was married and is the final resting place of both Nelson and Wellington. London bus tours offer many opportunities to hop on and off at the top tourist destinations. Take in the crown jewels at the historic tower of London which is over a thousand years old.

Taking a bus tour is a great way to get to know the city. A bus tour will take you past Cleopatra’s Needle and the famous Globe Theatre, which dates back to the time of Shakespeare. A highlight of a bus tour is to stop at Buckingham Palace for the Changing of the Guard Ceremony and the Horse Guards Parade. There are many bus companies operating here.

Taxi Tours

A taxi tour is fun, informative and a great start to your vacation. Get your bearings and see the sights in an iconic London Cab with a personal tour guide; and no one knows the city like a ‘cabbie’ with ‘The Knowledge’. Informative and friendly, these ‘cabbies’ will help you get to grips with London’s roads and the best attractions on your first day. It is a brilliant way to experience it if you’re in a group of up to five people and there are special taxi tours for the little ones.

Taxi tours can also be booked around different themes and specific attractions themselves, so you can be whizzing off into the wizarding world of Harry Potter, or sliding into the scary adventures of Victorian London, full of laudanum and ghostly goings-on! The taxi tours are a safe way to get around and though they are definitely pricier than using other forms of transport, they really add something special to your experience. For a day trip with a difference, you can also book a tax tour to take you to attractions.
