Wonderful day trip from London, and relaxing as well. Really enjoyed this. We were a family of 5 me, hubby, 3 teenagers on a London vacation from the US Illinois. Coach station where we met was a little difficult to find but we allowed extra time to get lost, but that is more of an FYI to the traveler, and not a negative to Evan Evans. Our first stop was to Windsor, which took about an hour on the bus. Our guide was Andy, and he was knowledgeable about London, and his passion for London is evident. They pass out little audio guides and ear buds so Andy can give us verbal instructions and information when we're in a group outside. I thought the time at Windsor was ample, and Andy gives you very detailed instructions on timing and even advice. Do follow instructions. Since we arrived at Windsor before it opened, there were not many people there yet, and we were one of the first groups allowed in. Once we departed to go meet our coach, I was surprised at how many more people showed up that were milling around Heads up here, got a little nervous about the changing of the guard situation. They closed the gates earlier than the time given, so we were locked in, as they do not open the gates for anyone. Fortunately, they only close them when the guard comes in, then they reopen it. Would have liked to have seen the actual changing, but we had a bus to run to. So do plan to get out earlier than they tell you. Do allow yourself extra time to get to you re-grouping time/spot. It was then about a 2 hour ride to Bath, and the scenery was green and lush and beautiful. Bath was a beautiful city, and since we opted to do the Roman Baths tour, that did not leave us time to explore the city, so do need to decide what you want there. I'll just have to take a trip back there, not a bad thing. Also, Andy was very specific about the meeting spot and time in Bath, as they the city does have strict stopping rules in Bath so do be sure to get back to the coach early as directed by your guide. It was then about another 90 minutes or so to Stonehenge. Plenty of time to roam around there and take pictures, and we even had time to grab a bite to eat at the Stonehenge visitor center cafe. We had a backpack that we brought along to have jackets/unbrellas, etc on hand. This we could leave on the bus. However, take your valuables - things you don't want to be without, with you at all times. Yes, this was a long day, but plenty of time on the bus to relax in between stops. The WiFi on the bus didn't work very well, but that's not really a complaint, just listen to the guide talk, look at the beautiful scenery, nap, read, whatever. For this trip, our driver was Lorry. Kudos to Lorry, as it takes driving talent to get in and out of Bath, as well as in Bath ! If you have any concerns or questions about this trip or need further details, do reach out to Evan Evans ahead of time. I feel like some of the reviews are unfair to Evan Evans there are things that happen out of their control. I don't have a lot of international experience traveling, and this was my first official coach tour on a trip, and I was very pleased with how the logistics of this tour went. Also, Andy our guide was very responsive to questions as well.
Really nice tour. Really liked the Bath part an Stonehenge
I loved this trip. While the trip leaves very early, it is very much worth it. I did not feel rushed at any of the three stops. The drives between each location were bearable, a good opportunity for naps. I got to see Windsor Castle exactly one week before the royal wedding, which was an incredible experience. The Roman Baths were stunning, and there was also enough time to look through the church and grab an ice cream! The weather was perfect for Stonehenge. There is not much to look at honestly, just some really cool rocks. As a result, I cannot understand who would need more than 45 minutes there. Overall, a great trip.
Nigel was a great guide and Tom did an excellent job driving in the traffic!

Just awesome! It's a long trip but the guide was engaging. I love listening to her interesting stories, anecdotes and facts about the places we visited. The three destinations were simply amazing given the impressive facts behind them!
Experience of the guides was wonderful. VERY full day.
WED 11 APRIL - STONEHENGE, WINDSOR CASTLE AND BATH FROM LONDON
Not only did our well informed guide tell us many interesting facts and stories, she cleverly got us ahead of all the queues. So not much time was wasted. Everything about this day trip is exceptional. You will not be disappointed. Loved it!!

When we booked this tour, I was afraid it would be a tiring day, but there was enough time to rest in between stops. The tour was highly worthwhile. We began at Windsor Castle, where unfortunately we did not have enough time to visit Queen Mary's dollhouse. The castle and St. George's chapel were beautiful. Next stop was Bath, site of the Roman baths, the stunning Bath Abbey right next to the Roman Baths. and a delightful village where there were plenty of small shops where we were able to purchase a quick and delicious lunch. We didn't have time to indulge in the local ice cream, but there were many shops along our walking route. Our final stop was Stonehenge where we had ample time to visit the site and visitor's center. We were dropped off near the Victoria and Albert Museum in the early evening. Our tour guide was EXCELLENT ---very personable, informative and attentive to our needs. Highly recommend!!
