London, United Kingdom
Our cruise disembarked in Southhampton and our flight back to the states was not until the next morning. Our travel agent recommended taking a Viator tour on the way back to Heathrow. We were not disappointed. While we were looking forward to Stonehenge (closed due to the summer solstice), the substitution of Winchester Cathedral was acceptable.
We were met promptly at the cruise port. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. After reading about long queues at Windsor Castle, we bought tickets on line in advance. This gave us some extra time at the Castle. Our only complaint, was that our guide should have told us to grab something to eat at Winchester. From reading the write-up, we were under the impression there would be lunch time at Windsor. This was not the case and time was very tight at the Castle if you wanted to tour it.
We were dropped off at the front door of our hotel and our guide kindly assisted us with our luggage.
Aside from the lunch matter, it was a delightful and interesting day, permitting us to see places we had not previously. We would highly recommend this tour, but just check with your guide about the best time to grab a bite to eat.
