We especially loved the pub lunch and tour of the Village of Lacock
Meticulously planned trip and the guide was very insightful, sharing the history in a nice narrative of different places, making the entire journey very entertaining.
A very long day and just touching on the sites you see, but done as efficiently as possible with a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. If you want in depth chose another option, but if your time is very limited, this is ideal.
Our guide was very enthusiastic, she made our trip very comfortable always giving us interesting details about the places we were traveling. You could spend a whole day in each place, they are amazing. Obviously we choosed this trip because we had no time left on our agendas.
Arrive early so your group could be the first one to get into the windsor castle, after that just stay in the group schedule and you can reach Bath museum just in time for the last visit.
Very professional driver and guide. Time schedule was well planned. All sites were worth to visit, enjoyed the whole visit .
We actually missed this tour because we were late getting there. We called the number on the paper for our tickets and they told us to go to another gate where there were Viator Managers. We got there and they were able to put us on another tour. It didn't include Lacock but we got more time at bath and entrance to the Roman Baths. Our tour guide TARA was amazing! She told us a lot of great history and stories. The bus was really comfy and I would recommend this to anyone that wants to see all this in one day.
I do recommend to Viator that that they need to make things clearer at the bus station. We were a bit confused about where to go and what to do. We also didnt know there was management there until we called the number on the ticket.

Great way to see a lot in a short amount of time. This was our first time in England and gave us ideas of where we want to return to spend more time on future trips.

This was SO great! John was a great, informative tour guide and made us laugh too! This is an all day trip, fast, but you just have to take into account on what you can really do in one day, and for this, it was well worth it! Definitely good if you have a short amount of time.
We weren't at a hotel where they pick you up, but when we called the day before, the woman was helpful and got us a pick up at another hotel just up the street, so that was great! When John picked us up in the morning, we didn't even have to wait outside, he came and got us.
After we picked up everyone else, we went to the Victoria station, where we departed from there. There were other groups, but they helped us on telling us where to go. You do have to pay for the bathroom here, because there's none on the bus, so be aware.
Also throughout most of the bus ride, he pointed out really cool stuff as we drove by. The bus was a double decker and it was comfortable.
We stayed at all the sights for almost two hours. The first was Windsor, and John got us there before all the other tour groups and we went in first, which was awesome!
The second stop was Stonehenge, which was another bucket list for us and the shuttles that took you there and back were really efficient. We couldn't go to touch the stones because it was roped off, and they only do those in specific groups but you still can get close enough.
After that, we stopped for the Pub lunch at Lacock, and that was awesome! ALSO had a small walking tour, including two Harry Potter film sights! So that was a great surprise. The pub was old and timeless, the whole city was, and the food was great! Because of the time constraints, we didn't stay long, maybe an hour, but it was great. If you finished your lunch fast, you could go look around the town for a few minutes. We got some really good truffles and coffee by the Chocolate bar that was next to the pub.
And the final stop was Bath. We got there just in time for admission to the Roman Baths, around 4:30pm, and they stop at 5pm because they close it at 6pm. Bath was great too! John showed us landmarks on how to get back to the bus and gave us maps to what we wanted to do. The city Bath was beautiful as well! They also have an area where you can drink the water from a fountain because it was known for it's healing capabilities back in the day.
Then after that, a nice nap on the bus for the 2 hour drive back to London. John even showed us how to get back to our hotel from the tube, which was great!
John, the tour guide, and Andre, the bus driver of Premier tours was SO worth it all! I don't know what else to say about this trip. My husband and I loved it and it definitely made our whole Europe trip wonderful!

I was only in the U.K. for a few days, so this 12 hour tour was a perfect way to see a lot. We stopped for an hour or two in each location - Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, and Lacock. While one could spend an entire day at each place, if you are in a time crunch during your trip, this is the tour for you. Our tour guide was very helpful and informative, keeping us on schedule throughout the day and providing us with helpful historical information about each location as we drove to it. Bath was darling and the Bath museum with the Roman baths was fascinating. Stonehenge was amazing it was the highlight of the trip for me. Lacock is a quaint town the food at the pub was average, but it was a fun experience dining there. Windsor Castle was interesting as well, plus I enjoyed seeing their special exhibit this year in honor of the Queen's 90th birthday. I would highly recommend this tour. Definitely worth your time and money!!
Un excelente tour, 100 recomendado. Mucho profesionalismo. El bus muy cómodo.
Highlight of my trip to England! I absolutely loved this trip and every stop throughout the day seemed to get more and more beautiful. Saw a lot and learned a lot in a day and the drive there through small towns was so beautifuk. Would definitely recommend!
Tour was amazing! Guide David was awesome! Decent amount of time spent at each stop except for Bath, where some had to rush to get into the Roman baths before it closes. Late lunch at Lacock but the ciders were great! Lacock is such a beautiful little town with great chocolates and meringues.
Exactly what we expected. Would have enjoyed an extra half hour in Bath and less time at Windsor. Lovely trip. Denisa? our guide was very nice and knowledgeable.
The tour and our guide were both wonderful. It's a very full day, so try to start rested. Also, if you are staying somewhere between London and Windsor Castle, check if the tour may be able to meet you on the way or at the Castle. I can't say enough good about the tour... an incredible introduction to key sites of England and lots of great history.... And very reasonable compared to trying to do it all on one's own.
This was truly an amazing experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable, engaging and friendly. The selected sites were perfect. Windsor Castle was impressive, Bath was quaint and enjoyable, and Stonehenge was breath-taking and awe-inspiring!
This was a FULL day, but if you are short on time, you won't mind the strict 1 - 1.5 hour requirement at each site. This is due to the distance, a total of over 300 miles in one day. Lucy was a great guide, unique experience.
We had a great experience. It was a long day, but it was great to have the opportunity to see all the locations. Lucy was an excellent tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and all her instructions were very clear.
Great trip and our guide, Lucy, was a delight! It is a long day, but you get to see so much in a short time - perfect for a short visit to London.
Our guide was well-informed and provided clear instructions regarding meeting points and times to return to the bus. She was sick during the tour, but was always pleasant to be around and smiling though it all.
The stops were great, Windsor Castle was awesome to do first thing, as I was the first person in the staterooms and it felt like I had the place to myself.
The pub lunch in Lacock was adequate and the small town was frozen in time.
Bath was awesome and the Roman baths were definitely worth seeing. I would like to have spent more time there, as our visit through the baths felt a bit hurried.
Stonehenge was awesome as well, but I think there was a bit too much time spent here, but not by a noticeable length.
The driver's road etiquette was above reproach and I felt quite safe during the entire day. I would definitely recommend this tour, with a tad longer in Bath.
