Description
Depart from London and travel out of the city in your air-conditioned coach toward the majestic Windsor Castle. Home of the British Royal Family for 900 years, and location for the 2018 Royal Wedding, Windsor is the world's largest and oldest occupied castle and widely considered one of England’s finest. Explore the lavishly-decorated State Apartments and St George's Chapel with your guide and hear of the castle’s fascinating history and heritage.

Continue on through the rolling green Wiltshire landscape to Stonehenge, a collection of stones dragged to this lonely plain near Salisbury 5,000 years ago. This ancient stone circle is still a place of strong spiritual significance, and continues to capture the imagination of the many visitors it welcomes each year. Why the stones were placed here and what purpose they served remains a mystery though, so wander around the site at your leisure and decide for yourself why these age-old rocks have found themselves here. Take a look around the visitors’ center and learn the history of this ancient, mysterious site. During your visit enjoy a free interactive map and VOX personal headset that is exclusive to this tour.

Next, hop back in your coach and continue onward to Bath, famous for its elegant Georgian architecture and widely considered one of England’s prettiest cities. Follow your guide on a panoramic tour of Bath and be enchanted by the town's beautiful streets and alleyways, capturing the sites on camera as you go. You'll see Bath Abbey and the much-photographed Pulteney Bridge, modeled on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. During the tour, you will see the city’s famous Roman Baths — the best preserved Roman spa from the ancient world.

At the end of your time in Bath, travel back to London’s Victoria Coach Station where your day trip concludes.

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!

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!!

What a wonderful day our group had on this tour. Visiting Windsor Castle a few days before the Royal Wedding was so extra special...it had such an awesome feel to it and getting to see the actual place the wedding was going to take place was amazing. Bath was spectacular and the Roman Baths were so awe-inspiring...the history is indescribable. Stonehenge was just as mind blowing. Truly unbelievable.
Our driver Graham was entertaining however our guide Oliver although knowledgeable and likeable came across at times as insulting. In the words of one of my travelling party companions: 'Insults do not equal being cheeky thanks Oliver!!' I will add that a few people on this tour didn't seem to understand the enormity of the day and how long the day would be, but I believe that is a failure on their part and not on the booking process. Our party fully understood this was going to be a very long day...but it was so worth it. A small bit of advice...you get very little time to enjoy the wider offerings of each place, however, this tour is designed to give you the briefest yet comprehensive overview of each highlight..and it succeeds admirably in giving you this. If you wish to spend more time in each place...book another tour. Overall I would certainly recommend this tour...great value for money!

This was a great tour if you are short on time and want to take in as much as possible in a day. From the beginning the tour guide mentioned that the only complaint that people have is that there isn't enough time - which is true. There is a bit of driving the longest was about a 2 hour drive but the guide filled the long distance with great commentary.

What I liked most about this tour was that the guide gave the commentary on the way to the places and then let you off to explore. Unlike other tours where you have to follow the guide and may miss certain things. Bath and Windsor are areas that you could seriously spend a whole day in and explore, but if you want to take in three major sites and tour them on your own free will - do this tour.
