What to expect

On this two hour semi-private tour, you and up to eight guests will discover together the typical London phenomenon of the Changing of the Guard in a way that few other tourists ever will. Expect to nab a few amazing photos along the route!

You'll begin at iconic Trafalgar Square where you'll discover the history of the regiments before making your way to the Horse Guards Palace where the Calvary on Guard includes more than a few impressive steeds that take part in the ceremony.

Head up the Duke of York Steps, near the monumental Admiralty Arch before learning about various monarchs like George VI and Elizabeth in front of their statues. Stroll the Mall to St. James Palace, but be mindful to arrive on time to witness the inspection of the soldiers.

You’ll then follow your guide and the new regiment along the Mall to the monumental Buckingham Palace and watch the entire spectacle unfold before your eyes, without getting lost in the crowds. Follow the now-off-duty troops to the Wellington Barracks to end the tour, and continue your London adventures knowing that you have participated fully in one of the world’s most famous rituals.
