We had a great experience with our guide Neil, we started early in the morning and went directly to Windsor, since our trip was in months with low tourist season, we had no problems on entering very early we had time to visit the whole Castle and even the Windsor surroundings.

After that Neil took us directly to Stonehenge, its a quite long trip but we had time to chat and Neil explained us many things we didn't understand about the castle, Stonehenge and other pieces of British history we didn't knew, we stop for a Sandwich and we took our sandwich with us in the car.

Stonehenge was magnificent, Neil saves us there approximately an hour thanks that we brought us to the front gate instead of using the coach provided by the Royal Heritage. He knew everybody there and he showed us a couple of things you could not have notice if you go by your own or without a very professional guide like Neil.

After that we headed our way to Bath, getting there was also a little long but worth, Neil is an incredible nice person very well instructed in many fields of British History. Once we where in Bath he took us to a large Church and the to Bath, again showed us some spots you could not have notice unless traveling with an expert like him.

With his advise we did a fantastic shop in the area and after that he took us to dinner to a magnificent place, where we enjoyed a very nice meal.

Please be advised that will be a very long day, so dont plan nothing for the evening since you might not have time or energy for anything else this day.

I can not say enough good things about Neil and his kindness.

Booked a private tour to Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath. Ended up skipping Bath as we felt the tour would be too long. Lynton was our tour guide and driver. He picked us up on time and was very knowledge on all matters. Really enjoy his company and really enjoyed the tour.

This tour was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Linton our guide. He was knowledgeable and professional. The day was well paced, we got to see all three attractions and didn't feel rushed. Linton provided a wealth of information on Stonehenge and Bath and really added to the experience.

I have Neil as our guide as it seem he was highly recommended. It is true and confirmed Neil was the best guide He ensured both me and my son have a god and relaxing time. Neil is indeed full of knowledge of the history of each site and we are especially loved how he explained Stonhenge is such details to us and we truely learned from him and he is so patient and never rush us from site to site.
Now I can fully understand why everyone recommended Neil for this tour cause he is a amazing and fun guy. Most important of all
we feel totally safe under his care.

I chose this tour because of reviews. It was even better than expected. I thought 3 sights would be too much but the whole day and countryside drive was amazing. Linton is an excellent guide. He is too nice (just ask him), fun and professional. His enthusiasm and knowledge made all the difference.

The BEST tour we have taken, and we have taken MANY tours. Our guide, Neil, was professional, friendly and EXTREMELY knowledgable. Who needs a guide book? All of our questions were answered accurately, promptly and in detail by Neil. He is very passionate about this beautiful country and it shows in the care he takes to ensure you get the most out of your tour. He made every effort to ensure our family two adults, a child and a senior were all comfortable, safe and having fun! The best day that we spent in the UK was spent on this tour. Thank you for making it such a wonderful experience!

We had a great tour and wonderful tour guide! Definitely book directly with the vendor on this trip because it's a lot less than on this site. Even though the site has a low price guarantee, they don't honor it if the vendor sells in a different currency - so buyer beware! Other than that, I though it was a great tour and would book with the vendor directly again.

The only reason I am giving a four star review is that it is almost impossible to see these three places in one day. I give our tour guide Neil 5 stars however because without him we would not have even made it to Windsor Castle before the gates shut for the day. We were rushed from the beginning by terrible traffic on the way to Bath. We were also limited by theater tickets in the evening. Each of these places is worth a visit, but I strongly suggest you limit yourself to two out of the three. One could happily stay in Bath for a full day and even overnight. It is a fantastic medieval town with loads to see. Stonehenge and Windsor Castle are very doable in the same day, and one would have plenty of time at each site. As it was my daughter and I practically jogged through each place. Our guide Neil was a miracle worker with the time he had. He was knowledgeable and charming, and a perfect person to spend the day with. Lastly, he got us to our theater in time for the opening act!

These were 3 great locations to visit and tour. Also the Van was clean and we had an excellent, leisurely, expensive lunch we paid for but thats not why we were on the tour. The tour guide, Neal, however was terrible! We would not do a tour with him again. He was repeatedly late: 15 minutes late to pick us up from our hotel lobby, then 10 minutes late from time he told us to meet him after our 1 ½ hours at Windsor Castle, then 10 minutes late from the designated meeting time after our Bath tour. and then we arrived nearly 10 minutes after the Stonehenge 6 pm time closing time to start our tour there! For the last one he parked in a handicapped parking near the entrance because he wasnt sure wed even be able to get into the venue to start our tour. He did successfully cajoled the entrance staff to let us go in for our tour there, however, despite being late.

He is opinionated and not an informative, neutral tour guide while traveling with him. Much of the often 1-1.5 hours traveling from site to site with him were either in silence or him telling us about his storied military history, the 50 dogs on his farm, and his political views. Instead, we believe he should have been telling us about the areas we were driving through, the history of the area and/or contemporary information about the area we were in.

He took us to a secret lunch venue where no one else was and where we spent 1 1/2 hours in the countryside. But then he only gave us 30 minutes to do the Bath tour, our next stop. He also didnt accompany us on the tour of Bath. The times should have been reversed with only 30 minutes for lunch and 1.5 hours at Bath. Lunch was excellent but we didnt pay 700 for this tour for 4 people for an excellent, leisurely lunch that also cost us significantly. We also only went in one church in Bath and didnt have a tour of Bath as the tour overview promised. It obviously wasnt the 2-hour stop in Bath as your Overview indicated it would be.
Instead of having us use the free audio tour handsets at Stonehenge he insisted on leading us and explaining everything about Stonehenge himself. Then he gave us his own personal theories about how Stonehenge came to be. He repeatedly said that he didnt have anything specific research or experience to base them on. From our own tour books we know what he was saying was patently not true.

Water bottles were scattered on the floor of the back of the van, not in a cooler or cold. He offered water when we first got in the van at our hotel but never again. No snacks were offered either which we thought might be. We had to ask repeatedly about his Wi-fi as he never turned it on or offered it without prompting we knew from the information about out tour it was to be included.

Entire tour took 11 hours. The order was: Hotel pickup, Windsor, drive for 1 ½ hours to Lunch, drive another hour or so to Bath, drive 1 ½ hours to Stonehenge, drive to Woodhenge, and then drive 2 hours back to hotel in London.

Had he ever given this tour before? He truly was terrible. Unless someone teaches him otherwise, we would not recommend you use him any more.
