Perfect...exactly what we wanted! We're not a fan of touring with a group, so this was perfect for our family of 3 adults. The amount of time we spent at Stonehenge was perfect...plenty of time to walk the grounds and go through the gift shop before returning to the bus.
Definitely worth having someone drive us out from London as it was pretty far plus traffic! Make sure you get in the right line to get on to the shuttle bus. There's one for prebooked groups and another for individuals. Would recommend the audio tour. Our bus driver also gave us good insight and knowledge as he was driving through the city.
We had an absolutely lovely time. The coach driver was amazing and so funny! He had lots of great information for us along the way but also let us rest a little while too. We had the right amount of time at Stonehenge and the go at your own pace was the best. Nice visitor's area for a bite to eat and lovely gift shop. Highly recommend this trip for a wonderful afternoon.
Coach driver was very helpful, tour was great, although it was very cold, the museum at the site is fantastic.
Brilliant - our driver gave us excellent information to follow and once on the bus we had all the information to have a great day
Driver was extrememly knowledgable and friendly. One of the best tours I have been on.
I had the best experience touring Stonehenge with this company! There was a hiccup in my last minute booking so when I arrived they could not locate my name on the list to board the bus. The tour company worked quickly to make arrangements for me to still be able to attend the tour. The bus driver was excellent in getting us to and from London during high traffic times and was beyond helpful in making sure each one of her passenger knew which stop to get off on to get home. The driver was even kind enough to give 2 stray tourists a ride back to London after they missed their bus.
I recommend this tour if you just want to do your own thing. You get almost two hours at the site, which is just about perfect. You get a headset that tells you all you need to know, and you can move at your own pace.
Very good staff and driver. Plenty of time at the stones. Would recommend for anyone who wants a quick trip down the Stonehenge but doesn't want to take the whole day.
Fab tour. On time departure. Nice driver. Neat vehicle.
The stones were something I've seen on television and was keen to see the monument personally.
Great tour! The bus driver gave us all kind of info on places as we passed them leaving the city and he was so funny! The bus took us out to Stonehenge, the driver gave us headsets and a time to be back at the bus. I prefer solo touring so I felt It was the best way to explore and the perfect amount of time. On the way back through the city, the driver stopped at strategic places and let passengers off closer to their hotels.
Great way to see Stonehenge! Very comfortable bus ride. Nice and organized. Company even picked us up directly from our hotel.
Terrific day trip! Tour guide/ driver was great! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour!
The visit to stonehenge itself was wonderful. Only complaints were the disorganization at the bus terminal, a lot of people not knowing where to meet(the gate number we had been given was actually on the far side of the terminal) and on way back we waited over 45 minutes for late people one of which never showed up. Other things scheduled in london so this was a major problem.
I originally wasn't very excited to see Stonehenge, but the trip was absolutely worth it. It was enchanting to be around something so ancient. The new tourist center is really nice. Having a bus take you out there is really nice since the drive is quite long. Our driver was very entertaining which made the hours pass quite quickly.
The Independent tour was great and our bus driver was hilarious. He kept us laughing whenever he was talking about points of interest or highlights on the drive to Stonehenge. He provided us with sufficient quiet time so passengers could enjoy the country side or catch up on some zzz's.
If you truly want to explore Stonehenge on your own, this is a great tour. Easy transportation option. Advantage in getting tickets, audio devices, and tram to go to the actual area.
Aside from the chaos of trying to find the right bus at the bus station (the tour guide operators are very helpful when you can find them), it was really convenient to have the bus take us out there, and I felt like it was a good amount of time out at Stonehenge, which is one of the coolest places I've ever seen. The bus driver had some interesting information along the drive, but he also yelled at passengers to be quiet while he was talking, and really, we just paid for a shuttle bus, not a tour guide. Overall, I would definitely take this bus again, since it's a convenient way to visit a truly amazing place, but would hope for a somewhat less prickly driver.
Tour was awesome, Stonehenge is really cool.. But our driver asking for tips "because its the traditional thing to do in this country" was pretty rude!
