See British tradition come to life on this fully-guided Changing of the Guard walking tour that ensures you get the very best views of this spectacular ceremony!  Don’t make the same mistake that so many visitors often – and understandably – make, believing the prime vantage point from where to experience this time-honoured tradition is outside Buckingham Palace.

These spectators’ enthusiasm quickly turns to disappointment when they realise that they have waited for hours only to see the very end of this unique performance, their view often blocked by the throngs of people crowding around them. Instead, follow your guide on a dynamic journey that takes in the entire Changing of the Guard from beginning to end as they expertly navigate the crowds to take you to the best – and most photographable – viewpoints.

Marnie was excellent She was very knowledge and friendly Would highly recommend. She was great and no fault to her as the ceremony was shortened due to rain. Tour was still same amount of time as Marnie talked about other relevant aspects. She was exceptional!!

One of our favorite excursions while visiting London.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour a great experience for us both. We were in a great location to see the changing of the guards. We would highly recommend attending on Sundays since you can see both the horse guards changing, as well as, the foot soldiers.
We love “Marnie”, our tour guide and would highly re

Amber, our tour guide, was awesome. Led our small group of 12 or so to the best viewing sights and explained events as they occurred through our earphone pieces. Great experience, highly recommend!

This was the best tour! Phil, our guide, was high energy, told great stories and historical information and took us to the places we needed to be to see the guard, both old and new. I chose this tour because I wanted to be “behind the scenes” for this event. Phil didn't disappoint and was true to his word that we would literally be marching next to the Queen's Band! Thanks for a great experienc

Enjoyed this small group tour with Rosie. She had loads of information to share and knew the best places to take us to see what was actually happening. So glad we did the tour instead of just showing up at Buckingham Palace on our own trying to find a spot to see the ceremony. We wouldn't have gotten nearly as much out of the experience as we did going with Rosie!

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour of the changing of the Guard led by the very knowledgable Nathan. Not only did Nathan direct us to the best viewing locations, but filled the time with wonderful stories of the history of the Royal Family and Buckingham Palace. With a great sense of humor, Nathan made this tour educational and fun!

Sheila M, Jul 2019

We missed the tour because we kept getting conflicting directions to the Statue where we were to meet from the LOCAL people. We walked in circles for about 20 minutes. By that time we missed the group and had to rush to make the Changing of the quard on our own.

I am very glad I booked this tour. It was nice to have a tour guide that new the details of the changing of the guard. We saw a lot more than we would have if we had not have booked this tour. I highly recommend it.
