DELUXE | PRIVATE-GUIDED: You’re invited to discover the wonders of London. Stay in a 5-star hotel in the heart of the city and set out on a range of privately-guided experiences, enjoying key attractions including the London Eye and theatre in the West End.


This 6-day England vacation explores the many attractions of London. It features deluxe accommodations, private transfers and tours, and is a comprehensive first visit to the city.

Your journey takes you to London, the capital of the United Kingdom and one of the world’s foremost cultural centres. For hundreds of years, globetrotters have headed to London to explore its many historical and cultural institutions and to delight in the world-famous pub scene. You’ll have your chance to see what all the fuss is about while based out of your 5-star hotel overlooking the Thames River. Head on the original London sightseeing tour to explore the city’s famous landmarks. Ride the hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus and follow your fancy at the British Museum, Buckingham Palace, and the Tower of London. The next day, you’ll join your driver/guide and head on a more in-depth private tour to see both famous landmarks and hidden treasures of London. In addition to seeing Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and St. Pauls’ Cathedral, you’ll explore hidden tunnels, 300-year-old shops, secret alleys, and historical oddities like Henry VIII’s cow shed and the oldest church in London.

Another day, you’ll head on a private tour to explore Windsor Castle, the home to the British Royal Family and the world’s oldest continuously inhabited castle. On your tour, you’ll visit the State Apartments and St. George’s Chapel, where British monarchs like Henry VIII are buried. You’ll then head to Oxford to see the sights in the world’s most famous university town. On your walking tour, you’ll visit Christ Church College, Bodleian Library, and Sheldonian Theatre.

Back in London, get fast track tickets and skip the line up the Coca-Cola London Eye to enjoy beautiful views over the city. You’ll have half-an-hour to savour the sights from this giant Ferris Wheel. In the evening, take in one of the West End’s latest musicals, And Juliet, a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s famous play. On your final day in London you’ll discover the ins and outs of the city’s pub culture on a historical walking tour. Enjoy an introduction to the city’s gastronomic culture and British beers and snacks in the company of a foodie enthusiast.

At the end of your stay, head to the airport to connect back home.

The Coca-Cola London Eye (Fast Track Entry)

Enjoy the benefits of getting your tickets just 15 minutes before your experience and bypassing the majority of the queue. At 135m, Coca-Cola London Eye is the world's largest cantilevered observation wheel. It was conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects and was launched in 2000. It has already won over 85 awards for national and international tourism, outstanding architectural quality and engineering achievement. The observation wheel turns slow enough for people to embark while it is moving. A complete turn takes about thirty minutes. Thanks to the construction of the glass capsules on the outer side of the rim, you will have a great 360 degree view over London. Many famous landmarks are clearly visible, including Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament. On a clear day you can see as far as forty kilometers (25 miles). Make sure you get your tickets in advance, lines can be very long, both the lines for embarking and for ticket purchases. It's less crowded at night when the views are even more spectacular.

Theatre Ticket - Les Miserables (Evening)

Les Misérables, colloquially known in English-speaking countries as Les Mis or Les Miz, is a sung-through musical based on the novel Les Misérables by French poet and novelist Victor Hugo. The London production has run continuously since October 1985, making it the longest-running musical in the West End and the second longest-running musical in the world after the original Off-Broadway run of The Fantasticks.

Set in early 19th-century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his sister's starving child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him by a tremendous act of mercy, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert. Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary period in France, where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.
