Your Itinerary

DAY 1 – ARRIVE IN LONDON
Welcome to London! Arrive in the history-steeped, cosmopolitan throngs of the English capital and check in at your hotel for a three-night stay. Spend the rest of the day exploring the city. Your vacation includes a London Pass, which will serve as your gateway to the city! Make use of the hop-on, hop-off bus tour to navigate the city, stopping off at Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Trafalgar Square to see some of London’s most iconic sights! Gain entry to the Tower of London, Shakespeare’s Globe or Westminster Abbey and tick off your London bucket list. This afternoon, why not take the Thames River Cruise included in your London Pass? Gaze out at sights like the London Eye and the City skyline from the water as you relax along one of the world’s most famous waterways. There are 60 attractions to choose from, so you certainly won’t be bored. (Overnight in London)

DAY 2 – LONDON
Have a light breakfast as this morning is your secret food tour, the culinary tour lasts 3 to 3 and a half hours, and each one involves some walking, so be sure to bring comfortable footwear. You will have the opportunity to try traditional British food (such as award-winning Fish & Chips, World Famous Sausage Rolls and traditional Bacon & Egg Baps), sample tasters from street food vendors, enjoy English cheeses paired with local beer/cider and try a classic British Dessert alongside a Fresh Pot of Tea. Plus, with all our tours, there is our Secret Dish, which you can only find out about on the day. The tour concludes with a sample of local drinks. (Overnight in London) B
