Guided tours in London

A boat ride to Greenwich is one of our Top 25 attractions in London. Riding around on an open-top sightseeing bus is another popular tour with tourists. But if you really want to see London’s landmarks up-close then how about putting on your walking shoes and having a guided walk around the streets?
