This tour was excellent! Luxury bus picked us up right at the port after our cruise. We went to Salisbury Cathedral, which was gorgeous. Our tour guide gave us an incredible wealth of information prior to getting there and then we pretty much were on our own in the cathedral. He made himself readily available to answer any questions and provide further information if we wanted it in the cathedral. This was perfect as we were able to focus on what we wanted to see rather than him pointing things out to a large group. We then went to Stonehenge. Again, by the time we got there, we knew well in advance what to look for and history so looking at Stonehenge was very enjoyable. When we went to Windsor Castle, we were able to walk around by ourselves but he had advised us very thoroughly what to do and look for. Windsor is an amazing experience and should not be missed! As we were part of a tour, we skipped the long line and walked right in! This tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, quite funny, and made for an incredible experience all the way around. After Windsor, the bus dropped us right at our hotel! It was such an easy, enjoyable way to go from ship to hotel! Would highly recommend it!!

Our tour guide was very informative of the area we drove through. It was what I thought England's weather was like most of the time, even though it was the middle of August....drizzle and gray. It was exploring the area south of London which I hadn't seen in the other 2 visits I've done in England both in June. Enjoyed the castle and catheral which there's a lot of these in England/Europe! Stonehenge was also interesting and it was busy place with tourists, then after walking around, enjoyed the little cafe there.

Will, was our guide and quite funny. It was a wonderful experience. Coming off a ship can be very chaotic so I was a little nervous about finding our guide but there was someone there right when we departed customs.

an exceptional tour. Not enough time to spend at Salisbury and Windsor Castle but certainly an incentive to come back to visit.

If you're going back to London after a cruise, for a bit extra money than it would cost to take a taxi back to the city, you can have a fabulous additional day of touring! The company, International Friends, met us at the pier after we docked, loaded up our luggage into the bus and we headed off to Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge and Windsor Castle -- and then they dropped us at our London hotel! The tour guide was very professional and informative and explained what we could expect at each stop, how much time we would have and where to meet the bus at the end of the visit. The one disappointment was that we returned on a Sunday and Salisbury Cathedral was not offering formal tours and the shop was closed. But I would definitely look into post-cruise tours again given our positive experience with this.

This is a fantastic way to get from the Southampton cruise port to begin a stay in London. The only negative was the lack of time to fully enjoy Stonehenge or Windsor Castle due to the crowds and line for the transport bus to Stonehenge from the parking lot. But that is not their fault! Just bad luck with many buses arriving at the same time. We were thrilled to see the best original copy of the Magna Carta at the church in Salisbury - an extra that was unexpected, but fascinating. Such tiny, perfect writing! Lots of small buses and vans arrived to take us all directly to our hotels in London after the visit to Windsor Castle, and the unloading and reloading of luggage and belongings was a bit crazy - but it all ended well, and each divided group went to different areas in London, to the front door of each hotel. Much better, and cheaper, than any other option, and definitely more fun! A great way to start a visit to London after a cruise.

This was amazing! Our guide was knowledgeable and we were not expecting Salisbury to be so amazing. I seriously thought that Salisbury was just on the way to Stonehenge and didn't have the worlds oldest running clock or a copy of the Magna Carta in a gorgeous cathedral! This was actually our favorite part of the tour. Stonehenge was great as was Windsor never enough TIME!, it was just so hot and humid out and we were exhausted. Definitely do this tour if you have the opportunity and cooler weather!

Very organized with knowledgeable guide. Can you believe seeing these amazing sites: one of the 4 beautifully calligraphied Magna Cartas in the world, written in 1215 and housed in Salisbury Cathedral This document forms a basis for our constitutional law of rights and principles viewing the enigmatic Stonehenge and then visiting the huge Windsor Castle--all in one day before returning to your hotel or the airport. What a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it for all. Wow!

The tour guide was excellent. Robert was very well versed in the history of the area being toured. Very knowledgable, energetic, helpful and spoke clearly. He was an excellent tour conductor. As with all the tours I had taken, the drivers were the best. Drove safely and always cutious drivers, especially since traffic in London if horrific!

A great way to transition from your cruise vacation to a few days in London. The guided tour takes you to Salisbury Cathedral to see the Magna Carta. For history nuts this is just spectacular. Then you head off to Stonehenge for a close up experience of this archaeological site. Next you arrive at Windsor Castle to see all things royalty. What a treat. By the time you arrive at your hotel in London you've been treated to some of the best things Great Britain has to offer. It helped set us up for a wonderful time ion London on our own. The best part was the tour guides and bus driver. They were top notch and loads of fun. I would do it again for sure.

I love this tour. We took it last year and did it again this year with friends who had not been to London before. They loved it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and nice.

Amazing tour with an excellent tour guide!!! Couldn't ask for more! The drop off at our hotel was an added plus for this tour. Thanks, Viator, for such great service.

Great excursion. A lot of traffic on a Friday. Maybe need to rethink the drop off at hotels in London. It took way too much time to get to the
individual hotels. Otherwise the tour was very informative and very enjoyable.

The pick-up at the port was efficient and on time. The tour guide was well informed and full of facts and helpful hints while on the tour. We were transferred to a smaller vehicle to be transferred to our London hotel! great service and very professional. Have used Viator before and will use you again! Thanks again for the great experience.

Wonderful says it all! Very well organized.It made the trip into London a whole day excursion with enough time at Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge and Windsor Castle to check it out. We chose not to go into the Castle, but others did. Her Majesty was there.Her standard was flying. Rob was a FANTASTIC tour guide!!. He met us at the cruise terminal and luggage was loaded according to the order of hotel drop off. Ours was first on as we were last off but even that was great, as when we got to London he was still tour guiding the sites as we dropped off passengers at their hotels. ei:Westminster Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben,Victoria Station etc...! Thanks for making it a fabulous day and not just transportation from the cruise ship to London. I highly recommend it!

What a great way to end our cruise in Southampton. Everyone was professional and friendly. They had 3 people outside the cruise terminal to help with luggage and direct us to the buses. Great stops and Windsor was amazing. I would recommend using this company

It was my first time in Europe and this post-cruise tour was great. I loved all 3 locations we visited, the tour guide was very informative and friendly and it was great that they dropped us off directly in front of our hotel at the end.

The excursion was well organized and the tour director was friendly, knowledgeable and very forgiving of people who returned to the bus late. In addition it was reasonably priced since a cab would have cost over 1/2 of what the tour was priced and we got a great full day adventure out of it.

He made our day so special cant say enough good things about him and this tour THANKS from some very happy travelers !!!!

We joined this tour after the ending of our cruise in Southampton. We were looking to get a good overview of some sites on our way into London. The tour turned out to be a perfect option. The 3 stops we made, Salsbury Cathedral, Stonehnge and Windsor Castle gave us the experience we were looking for. Our driver Paul made the trip into London especially great for me on the way to our hotel so I could walk across Abbey Road. I do recommend this tour.
