The Eurostar is a train service that connects London to Paris via the Channel Tunnel – a railway line that runs under the English Channel.

Also see Buckingham Palace; the official residence of the queen and the Palace of Westminster where the house of Parliament and the house of Lords are united.

See the famous Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, the Gothic Church where traditionally coronation ceremonies are held. It was also the final resting place many of the UK’s most influential figures.

Westminster is an ideal place to "hop-off" as here you can join a Thames River Cruise, a ticket for which is also included in the package.

Doreen L Emmerson

This tour is amazing, but one day is not enough. The time leaving London for Paris,could have been a hour later on the train. The extra hour would make a difference. Also not being met in London by some Representative to guide us to the hop on - hop -off bus should be a must. The letter from Cityrama informed us if we missed the 10:07 bus the next one was an hour later, Not true, but a group of us finally found the bus with help again from people on the street. Does not include return to the hotel or lunch which we thought we had booked.We also thought when we booked the tour we had booked a guided tour, did not get. Hope this be looked into.

The train experience was good. I enjoyed being handed tickets and left to do what we wanted in London. However, up on arrival in London after 30 minutes of waiting, we were informed that some bus drivers were on strike that day. My friend and I decided to take a cab instead of wasting more of our limited time in London. We were told by other group members that they were led walking to the city center. Poor communication between guides as to how our day should have gone. We loved London and definitely do not regret going there, just disappointed that some of the great cost of the tour was offset by what we had to pay for cab fare.

A well organised day trip to London from Paris on the Eurostar rail. Gave us a taste of London in view of a future trip to the UK. Please note; 'travelled as' needs to include : friends
