Tour/Activity

Cambridge and Oxford Historic Colleges of Britain Day Trip

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

There is a lot of travelling on this trip, but I enjoyed it regardless. The guide was knowledgeable and pointed out sites of interest, Cambridge was picturesque and definitely worth a look. After the guided walk through there was time for a quick look in one or two of the other colleges. Oxford was also lovely but was much more structured, so less free time. Well worth seeing, and brilliant if you have limited time.

My Review

Started with Windsor Castle. The price included a headset tour, but had to skip through it to be back at the bus on time, so all we saw were the state rooms and dolls house, and didn't get to listen guide tell us about them. Then on to Stonehenge, which is excellent (headset tour guide as well). Then on to lunch at the 15th century pub, all good so far if a bit rushed. The bus driver didn't come to get us and ended up being half an hour to three quarters late. We finally get to Bath at 4.30. By the time we walk to the square and listen to the guide about pick up times and places, everything is closed including the pump room and the baths themselves. Had great difficulty finding somewhere to use the bathroom. They tried to do too much in one day... I was very disappointed as I chiefly went on this tour to see Windsor Castle and Bath.

Leeds Castle Private Viewing, Canterbury and Greenwich Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Brilliant day out! Knowledgeable guide, Highly recommend seeing Leeds Castle if you get the chance. Plenty of time to wander around after the guided tour. Canterbury Cathedral and Canterbury were also very interesting. Had time for a wander in Canterbury as well. And then on to Greenwich, which was mostly closed, but our guide took us for a walk around the town and then gave us a guided tour on the boat up the Thames. I didn't realise that most places would be closed on the final leg of these day trips, but it was a great day out and I highly recommend it!

The Lion King Theater Show

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The show was stupendous! I just loved it. The music and dancing was brilliant and the costumes were wonderful. However I thought that I had paid for a good seat and what I got was about 7 rows from the front in the stalls, about three in from the left end. So although I could see most of the stage, I couldn't see the left rear and I could see into the wings on the right. Won't buy on line again.

Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick Castle Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was the best of all the day trips I took. Oxford was cool and the guide knowledgeable. The drive through the Cotswolds was lovely, and Stratford on Avon was beautiful. Warrick Castle was impressive and so was the town. We seemed to have plenty of time all the way along and Shakespeare 's cottage was cool. A word of warning, Warrick Castle is very commercialised and sort of like a theme or amusement park. We got there late in the day so (luckily) most things had ceased or closed. The outside was brilliant but inside they had talking life sized dolls (?) Which put me off. Regardless I would do this trip again if I got the chance.
