If you are planning to visit London for sightseeing, you will have so much on your platter that you will find it difficult to plan your movements to be able to see all that the largest city in Europe has to offer. Whether you wish to see London from above while taking a ride on the London Eye, or whether you wish to a celebrity at Madame Tussauds, albeit a wax replica or you wish to see some of the most precious treasures at the British Museums, or meet the dinosaurs at the National History Museum or whether you wish to get a feel of royalty by seeing the Buckingham Palace and seeing the Change of the Guards, you simply cannot do it on your own especially if you are a first-time visitor to London.
The best solution to ensure that you can explore the city in the best possible way is to book a sightseeing tour which will prove to be ideal for seeing the top sights and attractions that the city has to offer. Since it is virtually impossible to see all the attractions of the city, you can tailor your tour to include the places that you wish to see.
Bus tours are one of the best ways of seeing the various important tourist attractions, particularly the open top double-decker buses that set off every fifteen minutes from Victoria Station, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly and from other important places of the city. These tours usually take about two hours but you have the option of hopping on and off the bus as you please so that you can get off if you see something interesting and then get on the next bus on the route.
You can also take a combined bus and boat tour that departs from the London Eye and lasts for about 45 minutes. You can also take walking tours that are guided by local specialists and they combine historical information with interesting tales. Information regarding the various sightseeing tours can be gathered from the London hotel where you are staying.
