A unique insight into History and the Royal Family. Windsor is blend of old and new, the history of the Royal family and the Castle, coupled with the new since they still use it and were in residence while we were there touring the castle. Stonehenge is close to 5000 years old and the tour provides a peak into history and the archaeologists views on prehistoric man and how the stones were arranged and the meaning behind the sight. Oxford, as a town has such unique architecture, showing the years as the colleges have grown and evolved in the last 1,000 years...Tour guide Patricia provided great insights for all 3 sights...be prepared for long bus rides and a 10 hour day.
We really enjoyed this day trip. We did not feel rushed as this is a highlights tour and had adaquate time to view the highlights of each place. Overall we had a great time and were very impressed. If you only have one day to visit this is a great trip to see a lot in a short amount of time.
Claudia and Paul were great!
I highly recommend this tour. The company is very serious, and the tour guide was completely nice and funny too. We got to see all of these amazing places in one day, and even had some free time to visit stores and restaurants.
This is a sperfect one day tour to see the most famous sights around London. We had a great bus driver and a guide, Deborah who was really nice and flexible. Though we had a terrible weather they managed to show us everything in.
We also had our 12 year-old son with us, who doesn't speak English well and he also enjoyed the tour.
I can suggest the company ant the tour for those who wants to see more around London in a short time and want to travel in comfort.
Overall, a wonderful experience, with alot of stories along the way. The trip was very timely, and the buses left exactly at 8am, so make sure you're there on time!
Our guide Patty was very informative, had alot of stories and very knowledgeable of the history. She went above and beyond to make sure we're all comfortable along the way, making sure our information box worked well before we needed to use it. The only area for improvement, would be to give more precise directions for returns to the bus as a couple of us had to ask for directions at the first stop at Winsor.
We greatly enjoyed this tour that took us all over the English countryside! Be prepared for a long day 11 hours and a lot of driving 45 mins from London to Windsor, 1.5 hours from Windsor to Stonehenge, 1.5 hours from Stonehenge to Oxford, 1.5-2 hours from Oxford to London. However, we didn't mind the driving, as the variety of sites that the tour visited made the journeys worth it, and the bus was clean and comfortable.
Our tour guide, Patricia, was well-organized and provided excellent details for maximizing our time at each site. However, we were not informed that the tour was bilingual--everything that Patricia said in English then had to be repeated in Spanish, which doubled the time that the Oxford walking tour took and severely cut into the time we had to explore the town on our own. I wish that we had been told of this in advance, or given the option to book an English tour for no reason other than to maximize our time at the sites.
Important things to note: if you don't buy the admissions in advance, you will need to have 41 pounds total for each person to enter Windsor Castle and Stonehenge. Also, there isn't time to sit down for a meal at any stop, so plan to buy sandwiches at Windsor Castle and eat them on the bus.
It was a great tour. The only thing that was less was the long queue at Windsor Castle due to extra control but the whole experience was good and the guide gave us extra time so we were able to see everything we wanted to. The experience of Stonehenge was good we had a great audio tour. In Oxford it was our guide that told us everything and she as really great. Overall a great experience.
Three venues and the associated drive time makes for a long day. I would suggest two of the three venues would be better by allowing more time at two sites and less time in the bus. Our travel group of three all rated Stonehenge our 1,Windsor Castle 2, and Oxford 3. Unfortunately, we didnt have enough time to visit the information center while at Stonehenge.
Informative and efficiently run highlight tour of 3 iconic British locations. Tour covers a lot of ground so should not expect to see everything. Emily and Paul were great guide and driver combination. Range on the audio system was weak. It was difficult to manage and maintain connection between guide and large group walking cross long blocks. Boarding at Victoria Coach Station is a bit chaotic.
