London, United Kingdom
My husband and I visited London with another couple this past week. I was in charge of making up an itinerary for us so I thought it would be fun to do a day trip. We chose the Stonehenge, Bath and Windsor tour in a small group coach (15 people plus the guide)
Our tour guide was Tony and he had us laughing immediately. This guy had a world of knowledge and it was very interesting hearing some of the back stories you don't always read about in the history books.(not to mention his knowledge of cars which was the subject of much conversation with the men!)
We visited Stonehenge first thing in the morning, which was perfect because the crowds had not yet arrived... You are given a hand held tour recording to listen to while you circle around the site but we never even turned ours on because Tony led us around and gave us his own tour. It made it so much more interesting!
Next... we went to Bath. We toured the ancient pools and tried to imagine what it was like in it's days of splendor! Afterwards, a few of us met up with Tony for a walking tour of the city. He led us around and pointed out some amazing historical sites with a full commentary of what we were seeing. It was a much more personal experience rather than being herded around like cattle.
Last but not least, we headed to Windsor Castle. The Queen had a luncheon for her diamond Jubilee celebration so the castle was closed to the public... There were a lot of great shops for finding some UK treasures though!
All in all, it was a wonderful day... I would HIGHLY recommend this company!
