We are celebrating our 40th anniversary with a cruise-tour in Europe early May which will end in London for the final 5 days when we are on our own. We would very much appreciate advice on accommodation for our stay and best touring within London for 3 full days (Thurs.-Sat.). Particulars to consider would be
1. Flying in from Venice: best airport to choose, closest to popular sites,
2. Would prefer central London hotel if we could find a room for under 115GBP per nite, otherwise closest by subway, 3-4 star rating,
3.Best tour company offering guided tours, preferably coach. We still have good legs so don't mind walking and would prefer full days out so as to cover max sites.
This is our first venture into Great Britain and plan on returning, so we would prefer to stay central and leave the out-of-town travel for our next visit. Any help would be appreciated as a google vacation lacks the personal, experienced touch.
