London is one of the most popular cities in Europe, not to mention the world, for tourists to visit. It is an ideal destination for first-time travelers who are English speakers and want to get their feet wet in a city that makes it easy to get around and explore. But there is so much to see in this capital city, and it is so expensive to visit, that planning wisely is a must and booking one of these London tours is a great idea.
There are lots of London tours you can choose from here, including some that cover the city's highlights and some that get you out of the city entirely. Your toughest choice may be picking only one or two of these guided tours to do! But the good news is that you do not necessarily have to choose only one - since most of these are, at most, a day-trip, you can string a few of them together during your visit to London.
To get your bearing in a city this size, it can be really smart to book one of these city-based London tours early in your visit. Then you can learn your way around, check the major sights off your to-do list, and know which attractions you will want to explore further later on. There are one-day sightseeing tours, and hop-on/hop-off tours - the latter offer the ultimate in flexibility, although the former usually offer more guidance.
But to get out of the city, all you need to do is book one of the London tours listed here that gets you beyond the metro area. You can visit nearby Windsor Castle, soak up the history at Stonehenge, check out historic Bath, feel educated in Oxford, or even take a long day-trip to Paris! Your choices are nearly limitless, so you will just need to pick the tour - or the tours - that best suit your budget and travel style.
