Small-Group Day Trip to Stonehenge, Bath and Windsor from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

All three sites were outstanding. The visit to Windsor is a must see. It is much more accessible and less crowded than many of the other "castles" of Europe. Bath in particular is also a wonderful town that should not be missed. We may return specifically to this quaint town during future visits. The Stonehenge experience was also wonderful but, in the interest of preservation, the site is becoming less and less accessible. They are also building a new welcome center that, I'm afraid, will make it even less so. The tour itself was good and the guide was highly knowledgeable and funny (but got preoccupied and monopolized buy a couple of flirtatiously giggling guests)

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

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Not worth the money. Got on once and got off once. Was never able to get back on. One bus actually passed us by at a bus stop because a metro bus was at the stop. It was raining. We were not happy! There are way to many bust stops as well and it takes quite a while to make the circuit. If you choose this tour, my suggestion is that you get on the bus early in the morning on your first day, take the yellow route for the live commentary, and use it for a general orientation of the city. When you get off, don't plan on getting back on more than once. If you do manage to get back on more than that, consider yourself fortunate. Do NOT use it for transportation!

London Full-Day Sightseeing Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Fairly good tour overall. The hotel pick up was nice (although expect to drive a while around London picking up others). Got us to the Tower of London before the rest of the masses which was excellent. The Tower is a highlight that should not be missed. The cruise was a waste of time from my perspective. It was short (and I spent most of my time waiting for a barrister to make me a coffee). The changing of the Guard was quite fun and our guide was able to tell us where to stand to get some memorable pictures away from the majority of the crowds (although we did not actually see the changing). The entire afternoon was spent at St. Paul's cathedral which was way too much time and the tour does not include access to the Whispering or Golden Galleries (which is the highlight of the cathedral). It would have been easy (I think) to include a visit to the Tate Modern gallery or the Shakespeare's Globe.

Private Transfer: Gare du Nord Train Station (Eurostar Terminal)

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Surprisingly poor transfer. He did arrive on time and got us to the station on time which I am thankful for but spoke very little English (or French - he was Asian!). I actually had to load and unload my own luggage. He was on the phone during this time talking to someone - (in Chinese I think).
