Richard, our tour guide, had very little to contribute to the tour other than to tell us that we had a lot of things to do and very little time. This seemed to be his "go to" mantra. His enthusiasm was lacking and that was felt by the whole bus. Another member of our tour called it the "gloom and doom" tour. Not a very pleasant day.
We had a terrific time! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The bus driver was very nice too. Other than a bit of a late start due to the bus not arriving in the station on time, the whole tour ran smoothly. The only surprise was being dropped at the train station (at the end of the tour) and not our hotel. We had been riding the Underground so knew how to get back so not that big of a deal for us! I would highly recommend this tour!
The guide was great. Very organised and clear w her. And pleasant.
The programme was planned very well.
Most of all, there was very good communication between the operator and the tour because I didn't manage to get in touch til the morning of the tour itself.
I would recommend to my friends.
Our your was great!, amazing your guide he knew absolutely everything a full day but well worth doing
Dave the tour guide was funny, dramatic, informative, eclectic and did his best to fit in all he could into a very busy tour. Thanks to Steve the driver, job well done.
Ross was an amazing guide, he was friendly, knowledgeable, dynamic, entertaining and you could see he loved his job. The tour was amazing, we learned a lot and saw a lot. The coach bus was a 2-story bus and was comfortable. Ross made sure everyone was comfortable and was enjoying themselves. The only negative aspect of this tour is that you are quite in a rush to see everything since you are seeing 4 places in only 1 day AND you have to count the driving time... I think Windsor Castle is the place where we were the most rushed.
A long day but a great day. Would definitely recommend this trip. Alan was a wonderful guide, very entertaining and really knows his stuff - he had his group of 73 so well organised!
The tour itself was a good one. The guide was really nice, told us a lot of interesting things and did a great job to organize our large croud. Unfortunately, sometimes we had a real rush, but it's never enough time for anything: so said the guide, and so shows my personal experience.
A huge disappointment was that heavily-raining hour in Bath, but it's not an issue to be dealt with.
I expected more from some of the sights, but everything still seems perfectly nice.
Stonehenge was fabulous, audio tour great.
Lacock was a joy; the walk and lunch superb.
Bath was lovely, and the walking tour very fun.
Too little time at Windsor Castle. By the time we made it through the entry line, and since we had to be out before the changing of the Guards... we had 45 minutes. Barely enough to run through the grounds.
Although the places are amazing, we were rushed beyond belief. My 73 year old mother was running down the streets of Windsor, for fear of being left behind as a "magic act"courtesy of our tour guide Alan aka "Handsome?". We did not really care about his personal life or the crude jokes
I have to say that this tour was very disappointing some parts were in the tours control and some weren't. Our tour was delayed by 10-15 because the tour company had overbooked the tour by tour people. That delay put us behind all the other tour groups that we're arriving at Windsor at the beginning of the day. When we were leaving Windsor a person on our bus was 10 minutes late. Remember that we've now lost about half an hour of touring time. Unfortunately, there was an accident that day which delayed us another 30 minutes which gave us about one hour in Bath and about an hour and a bit in Lacock to have lunch and explore.
I was extremely unimpressed with our tour guide who just seemed overwhelmed. I think this may have been his first time on this tour route. Given that we had such little time in each location, he could have had a
map of Bath for us and suggestions on where to go. We got off the bus and we were on our own. We walked to the tourist information office for a map and suggestions. Ridiculous. In Lacock, the pub lunch was delicious and well organized. Again very little time there which we understood but it would have been nice if he knew where the Harry Potter film sights were. Again, we were on our own to figure it out. Also lunch wasn't until almost 4 o'clock. He should have told us this at the beginning of the day so we could have grabbed a snack at Windsor, our first stop. He was very knowledgeable but in an professor type of way. I don't a comedian but a little humor would have been nice.
We stopped at Stonehenge at the end of the day which was nice because almost all the tour groups had left for the day. So there were very few people there.
It was a very large group with 78 people. It felt like we were just driven from location to location rather than on a guided tour. My sister did the Windsor, Bath, Stonehenge trip a couple of years ago and she was shocked when I described our tour.
