London – Down the River Thames
Where do you start with a secret agent who has saved the world in 24 movies? This handcrafted Bond itinerary first takes you onto the River Thames, the famous London River that you should recognize from the opening scene of Spectre. Strap yourself in for a private speedboat tour and an exhilarating introduction to London. The famous sights whizz past, like London Bridge, the homes of MI6 (from the movies), Westminster, and various world-renowned sights. It's fast, furious, and a stunning introduction to both London's sights and Bond's thrills.
The speedboat ride follows a private airport transfer and a relaxed check-in at your five-star accommodation. Keen Bond followers will recognize this 19th-century hotel although the location isn't quite what you'd expect. Constructed in 1865, The Langham appears in Goldeneye as St. Petersburg's Grand Hotel Europe. It reflects the glamour and glitz of 007 and is amongst England's oldest five-star establishments. Plus the central location is ideal for easy exploration of the heart of the city because it stands at the top of Regent Street in the West End. So for the evening, get dressed up for one of the hotel's restaurants or spend an evening at a show at any of the nearby theaters. Consider learning more about your travel agents for England tours, who work meticulously to provide you the essential information to ensure your England mission is an outstanding success.

He's suave, he's glamorous, he's full of action, and he always travels in style. Ian Fleming's iconic creation has perpetuated an idolized image of England, the action hero who blends elegance with loyalty. This tour can't quite deliver exploding pens and bad guys throwing a steel-rimmed bowler hat, but it does allow you to experience essentially everything else you can imagine from James Bond. Drive an Aston Martin away from a stately home, speed down the Thames on a speedboat, drink London's best martini, and dine at some of the most famous filming locations. You even get to stay in the opulent hotel that's used in countless scenes from Goldfinger and Tomorrow Never Dies. Part exhilarating adventure and part stylish luxury, this James Bond tour of England invites you into a premier peek in the legendary character’s lifestyle.
London is your base for the first five nights, and it's hard to go two miles without a slice of Bond reverie. Start by recreating the opening scene from Spectre, then brush off the tuxedo for some dinner at London's most glamorous restaurants. You'll explore the famous movie locations, with beginning the first of many England tours with a motorbike tour taking you down the city's alleys to a succession of sights. Then there's a behind the scenes tour that takes you into the lesser-known locations, like the hotel where Bond made his first ever appearance in Dr. No and the gentlemen's club you'll recognize from half a dozen films. “Shaken not stirred,” was Ian Fleming's motto, and the Duke's Hotel is where the author would scribble down notes with his martini. Naturally, you'll try one. Or a few. With five days, you can absorb the luxury of London, so put on your best Sean Connery accent for high tea at Claridge’s and a tasting menu at the Duke's Hotel.

Head east through the countryside to Blenheim Palace, a sublime stately home that recently graced movie screens in Spectre.

In the hotel's ballroom, you're almost expecting a Bond girl or iconic villain to emerge. Don't forget to make a stop at Windsor Castle, home of the Queen, and the one whom 007 is secretly doing it all for. From historical locations to energetic adventures, fine dining to stately fortresses, this tour celebrates all things English and the quintessential James Bond.
