I like the sights in London. They describe its greatness, beauty, show individuality. The most famous attraction is Big Ben. The famous clock stands near the Parliament. It has four dials and five large bells. Many people think that this is the name of the clock tower in London, but in fact this is the name of the 13-ton bell that is inside it.

There are many beautiful sights in London. I'd like to see Buckingham Palace.Buckingham Palace is one of the major tourist attractions in London. It is the official residency o the British monarchy.

You can see many different beautiful sights in London, but I like Big Ben the most. The famous clock Big Ben stands near the Houses of Parliament. Big Ben is really a Big Bell. It weighs 13,720 kilograms. The clock has four faces and five Big bells. The English people built the tower and the clock in 1858.

No, I haven't been to London. I would like to visit any city in Japan because I'm interested for its culture, its technology and extravagant food. I also would like to visit Rome for its tourists places.

I haven't been to any of these yet, but I know that these are the best in the UK and in the world to visit. I wish I would have a trip to those places.
At the moment, I'd like to take a tour in Kyoto, Japan’s most beautiful city and world-famous for its refined culture, dining, and charm of rural Japan. Here has sublime Zen gardens, mysterious Buddhist temples, colorful Shinto shrines, graceful geisha.
During spring, we'll experience the city with a backdrop of blooming cherry blossoms. And fall comes with warm hues of red, orange, and yellow from the maple trees that match perfectly with the warm-colored temples. The fact is, Kyoto is the most rewarding city in Japan and a place all travelers should visit at least once in their lives.

It was a very pleasant subject, since London has always caught my attention, for various reasons, one in particular, my favorite boy band. Thanks to this audio, it allowed me to travel through my imagination to tourist places in this beautiful city. I learned interesting things and managed to expand my vocabulary. It is in my plans to visit London someday.

I really want to visit Japan, even if I can just explore it once in my life. There are so many interesting things in Japan, such as kimonos, sushi, mochi, ramen, anime... Or I can visit the amazing Tokyo Skytree, the historical Tokyo Imperial Palace or the Ramen Museum. But the enormous problem here is that I can't speak and write anything in Japanese!

I have never been to these places but my dream is visiting China. Because it's a big country, with a lot of handsome boys and pretty girls. I have learned a bit Chinese, so I think the community isn't too hard. Besides, China has lots of places to visit and of course, there are yummy foods and drinks, too. Especially, milk tea : >

Hi AGoodEnglishLearner! They are both correct, and in most situations you can use either one. But there is a slight difference in meaning. 

  • on the tour = during the tour
  • in the tour = included in the tour / as a part of the tour
