This tour was very enjoyable and each sight worth a visit. It would have been great too have had more time in Bath with all its shops, parks and interesting buildings to explore. There was NOT enough time.However, the traditional English lunch at the Pub was a great highlight of the day.
This was a very long day----12+ hours----tour which was as an excellent sampler of three major places to visit. Left Victoria Coach Station around 8:30 and arrived back around 9 pm. (The tour does provide pickup at hotels---but much earlier than 8:30---with Victoria Coach Station being last pick-up, you avoid the earlier hotel pick-up by going to Victoria Coach Station). A key component to making this an extremely interesting and enjoyable tour was our tour guide---Nick. He was excellent---enthusiastic, informative, and able to communicate with humor and knowledge. The bus was a modern and comfortable double decker coach (but no bathroom on board). The lunch was very good,and took place in a pub in an English countryside village, which has served as a location for Harry Potter movies. The first stop was Windsor Castle. Amazing place. We were there for about an hour---about 60-90 minutes less than needed to do it well. The hour allowed us to see the most important state rooms, the chapel, and see the changing of the guard, which was accompanied by a marching band. Nick gave good advice what to see and do in this limited time. If you want to spend more time at Winsor, take a tour focused on Windsor or take the accessible train from London. There is a nice village around the castle to eat and walk around after you tour. And you can pick up tours at the castle. The next stop was Bath. We had limited time here---about 60+ minutes. Not enough time to tour the town---which is more a town than a small village, and visit the Roman baths. Nick gave a nice walking tour of the town, which is very picturesque and looks more like an Italian town. If Stonehenge is not important and there is an Windsor/Bath trip to spend more time there, then consider that. We then had lunch. Last stop was Stonehenge, which was very impressive and you wonder "how they do it?". We had sufficient time there. Overall, an excellent tour, but wished we had more time in Windsor and Bath.
The guide was extremely clear, friendly and knowledgeable. I had a great time on the trip,and especially liked how we were always given free time to roam about a new place. The lunch at Lacock was a real treat, and the village is just lovely!
Tour was excellent overall. It was a long day, but a great way to get in a lot of the main tourist sites in England. We had about 1.5-2 hours in each place, and a good hour for lunch. The driver and guide were very strict on when we needed to return to the bus, which was actually nice because it meant no waiting for people. Considering what we saw, it did not feel rushed at all.
Long day - but well worth it to see England highlights outside of London! The tour guide was wonderful, and kept the group moving without being overwhelming. Windsor Castle, and the surrounding town, was interesting - even managed to catch a bit of the changing of the guards. Bath was a beautiful stop, and lunch in Lacock was very good. And Stonehenge - simply amazing!
We actually missed this tour but were able to get moved to another similar tour which was well worth the price.
Tour was great. A little rushed, but we knew that going in. However, getting trapped in Windsor Castle was not fun. Changing of the guards, they would not let us leave to go catch our coach. The "guard" told us that the coach would not leave us. However the coach was just about to leave us. We ran to get to the lot. That however was not the fault of the tour. The tour was great.
this was a long trip but very worthwhile. we enjoyed it very much.
Wonderful tour, wonderful tour guide. Our guide Magnus and his driver Joanne navigated our tour to all four places in a quick and easy manner. On the way to each site he explained the history and background of each place so we knew what we were about to experience. This is a perfect way to get a taste of the English country side all in one day.
The tour was very well managed - tour guide was great! He made sure we are all on time, and made the extra effort of dropping people off nearest to their hotels. The sights were wonderful - must haves when you go to London. The Lacock village was a great stop. The only little downside was the pick-up point - at some point we were not so sure which group was the tour - there were several. The Lacock village lunch was average - anyway, you don't go there for the lunch but that experience of being in a medieval village.
Saw so much. Guide was so informative. Leacock was a suprise. Much to see on this trip with so little time. But we see the high points.
David our tour guide was fantastic!!! Really knowledgable and seemed to have connections everywhere we went so it was pretty magical :)
If this is your first time I recommended these 6 in 1 tour. What a better way to know a place than with a knowledgable guide. Our guide David was full of wits n knows about these places well. He just knows how to make you tick!
