Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford Custom Day Trip

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A lot to see in one day! Guide was informative. Travel time between towns is long. Would prefer to only see 2 out of the 3 and spend longer there. Meant to have 2 hours at Windsor but by the time bus parks away from centre of town, walk in, line up for security and you get in, there's only an hour and a half left before you have to be back at bus....also need to find time for a toilet break ( none on bus) and buy something to eat (no lunch otherwise). Does limit the amount that can be seen. The queue to see the dolls house meant we had to skip that and wizzed thru chapel without time to listen to recorded commentary.
Bus seats are narrower than others I've been on, without lots of leg room ( and no recline). This tour was operated by Evans Evans.
As long as you are aware you are only getting a taste of these places in the amount of time then do it. We did enjoy it all but would have loved more time at Windsor and Oxford. 45 minutes at Stonehenge was plenty....especially as it can be particularly cold there! Only had 40 minutes free time in Oxford (again toilet break included.....not many loos about!).

The Original London Sightseeing Tour: Hop-on Hop-off

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great! Some days and some routes have a live commentary....brilliant! Lots to see. My elderly mother and I just sat for a couple of hours and did the full circuit of one route. There were 4different routes to choose from. We then went to the river and jumped on the boat at Wetminster and travelled to Greenwich and back. Able to buy drinks and snacks on boats, so we just sat back and enjoyed the view.
Saw so much of London ( and learned so much!) in one day. Highly recommend.

Paris to Bruges Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Wonderful day out! Comfortable coach (no toilets on board though). Half hour stop gave time for toilet and food break. Trip went faster than expected. Plenty of time to wander, eat lunch and do boat ride which was fantastic. Only negative was it ended up being a bi-lingual tour with 2 guides. I just find that by the time one guide as spoken about passing sites and 2nd guide speaks, we are long past what they are talking about. Minor issue though. Would recommend this tour. Someone else told me about this tour and I'm so glad they did!

Not bad. Thought walk would be more in Latin quarter small streets and hidden places. More just main sites and included walking down to Notre Dame Cathedral and back up hill again.

Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

2nd time I've used and will be the last.
The wait for driver is ridiculous! Why they even bother asking arrival time is beyond me! Once a shuttle arrived we then had to wait for other people on other flights. It was an hour from when I phoned for shuttle to the time we were finally on our way!
Customs was quick....baggage was quick....traffic peak hour (expected that)....dropped off other passengers who boarded shuttle after us.... so by the time we arrived at our central hotel (2nd arrondissement ....near l'Opera) it was 3hours after the plane landed!
Shuttle cramped seating and slow to pick up. Spend the extra for a taxi.
