"If you're tired of London, you're tired of life," Samuel Johnson said. Our representative will be waiting for you on arrival and we will begin our acquaintance with the cosmopolitan London. We will start from the famous Kensington aristocratic neighborhood, with the homonymous gardens, the Palace (Kensington Gardens & Kensington Palace), continue to Knightsbridge with its luxurious market and classy architecture (there are also Harrods with its spectacular views) we will cross over the busiest and perhaps the most beautiful park in Europe, the Hyde Park.

Continuing on we will see Westminster Abbey and Parliament Square, with the emblem of the city, the spectacular Big Ben watch, the London Eye, the impressive 135-meter wheel.

In the evening you can optionally (individually spending) follow the city's night tour for a different, festively illuminated view of the city. London is perhaps the only European big city with so many different architectural districts.
Day 2: London (Free day for shopping, museum visits, park rides)
Breakfast at your hotel. Free day. The problem is not what to do today, but what to do! Take a stroll to get a feel of downtown Oasis in one of London's many lush parks: Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Regents Park Zoo or St James Park ..

Great London department stores like Selfridges, Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the well-known Marks & Spencer will all offer you reasonably priced. On the elegant Bond Street of the Mayfair mansion you will find shops of renowned designers (Prada, Chanel, Dior, Jimmy Choo), as well as art galleries (where Sotheby's famous auction houses are located).
