Day-by-Day

Day 1
Arrival to London

Welcome to the incredible capital of the United Kingdom - London! Upon arrival, your driver meets you at the airport and takes you to your hotel for check-in.

The rest of the day is free so you can start exploring the magnificent city center on your own, dine in one of the local restaurants or take a good rest in your comfortable room.

No meals included.

Day 2
Royal London

Following breakfast in your hotel, you start a full day guided walking tour around the iconic landmarks of London. For your comfort we have booked a day-pass for London tube, so you can experience a famous London transportation system and save time on traffic.

Together with your professional guide, you begin the sightseeing with a visit to the legendary Tower of London. Your tour continues to the must-see of the city: the 700-year-old Westminster Abbey, which you explore from the outside and the inside. You also see one of London's most famous landmarks - the Houses of Parliament's clock tower Big Ben, officially known as Elizabeth Tower and many other tourists attractions.

After the tour, you return back to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to explore London.

Breakfast is included.

Day 3
Day Trip to Windsor

After breakfast, you take advantage of your public transport day pass to arrive at the station. Then you board a quick train running to Windsor.

Upon arrival, your private guide takes you to the picturesque Windsor Castle, which has been the family home to British kings and queens for over 1,000 years.

The size of the Castle (5 hectares/13 acres) is breathtaking. In fact, it is the largest and oldest occupied Castle in the world and it's where Her Majesty the Queen chooses to spend most of her private weekends. During your tour, the guide shows you around the castle and shares all exciting stories it holds!

Today you also visit the magnificent State Apartments furnished with some of the finest works of art from the Royal Collection, take a tour of St. George's Chapel, admire the changing of the guards and much more. Your tour ends with a walk along the amazing parks.

After the tour, you have a return train ride to London.

Breakfast is included.

Day 4
Day Trip to Oxford & Cotswold Villages

After breakfast, you take advantage of your public transport day pass to travel to the meeting point. Today you have the chance to dive into the atmosphere of good old England and join an amazing small group tour to Oxford and Cotswold villages.

Upon arrival, you meet your guide-driver and head northwest out of London, through the fascinating countryside, to reach the legendary university town of Oxford. There you explore the precincts of many colleges, take in the stunning spire-studded skyline of Oxford University or visit the Ashmolean Museum.

The second part of the day is dedicated to the exploration of the charming villages of the Cotswolds. You discover Bampton, famous for the marvelous church of St. Mary, where many iconic scenes from Downton Abbey were filmed. You also travel to the tiny market village of Burford and fascinating Bibury where you stroll along the fairytale-like Arlington Row. After taking in the hospitality of the English countryside, you get back to London.

  • Please note: alternatively you can go on a small group tour to Bath, Avebury & Lacock Village. Contact your travel specialist for the details.

Breakfast is included.

Day 5
Free Day in London

Today is a free day for you to explore London on your own! There is still plenty to see, and one of the suggestions would be to visit the Shard skyscraper, which opens great panoramic views of the city or to explore famous Stonehenge.

Alternatively, you can choose to take one of our carefully planned optional tours.

Breakfast is included.

This is the last day of your amazing adventure! In the morning you check out and have a transfer to the airport. We wish you a safe flight and hope to work on your future trips!
