What You Can Expect

Southampton Shore Excursion: Pre-Cruise Tour from London to Southampton via Stonehenge


Leave your central London hotel by luxury coach and relax on the journey west, passing through London’s busy urban metropolis and into the peaceful Wiltshire countryside. While traveling, your tour manager will give you some insights into Wiltshire’s most intriguing relic – Stonehenge – and explain a few of the theories about the building of this Megalithic stone circle.

After traveling for roughly 1.5 hours, arrive at Stonehenge and spend time exploring this incredible site independently. While strolling around this UNESCO World Heritage Site, ponder the tales your tour manager told you earlier, and make up your own mind about how and why it came to stand. Was it built as an astrological observatory, or was it perhaps intended as a sacred burial place? How did the gigantic Sarsen stones get to the site when no machinery existed to transport them?

At the pre-arranged time, meet your tour manager back on the coach and then relax on the journey to Southampton on England’s coast. Your guide will drop you off right outside Southampton cruise terminal in time for your cruise.

Great experience at Stonehenge. It was a great beginning before our cruise

We wanted a reliable transport from London to our cruise ship, which it was. We also got to see Stonehenge which is something I have always wanted to see. Guides were great and very friendly. Be aware that tour does not include the entrance fee to Stonehenge so you need to have some money available for your ticket. I think Viator should make this an option to prepay for your ticket.

Tour director was new, but did a good job. He had a backup on board and was not hesitant to ask him questions or ask for his input. This tour was done with headsets, so you did at your own pace and then gave time for shopping. Would recommend.

there were 8 of us that took this tour together. The driver was very prompt at meeting us, then we had to wait about 30 minutes to go. The drive was very nice, big comfortable bus and the guide was good at pointing things out. They dropped us off and let us stay for just the right amount of time at Stonehenge, then drove us to the ship- very smooth tour!! Would do it again for sure!!

I am not sure my first review went through.
We really liked this excursion. The purpose of it was to get to Southampton to board the Ruby Princess for our cruise. This just made it an easy, easy way to get there. And, it was scenic by stopping by Stonehenge. The coach, run by International Friends, was spacious and the pickup was very, very easy. We have used Viator before and we will use Viator again!
