Absolutely FANTASTIC TOUR! TOTALLY worth the money to go inside the circle. Our tour guide was awesome! He was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I would have loved to have more time at Windsor Castle, we felt like we had to run though it as fast as we could and not stop to really look around. We could have easily spent another hour or 2 there, but we understand it was a long tour. Long lines from lots of tourists compounded the time issue. Stonehenge was AMAZING!!!! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended!
Loved it. Simon our guide was great. Had plenty of time at all three places.
Enjoyed this tour a lot. We began in the bus from a central spot in London -- it was a big bus, and over 40 people on the tour. Our tour guide was Oliver, and our driver was if I remember correctly Moe. The first stop was Windsor and the Windsor Castle. The tour did not include tickets to go into the castle, but we had ample time to tour the castle if we wished we did, and it was very cool. The town itself is a beautiful royal town. Next up was Oxford. The tour around the Oxford college area was thorough, but truthfully my favorite part of Oxford was being able to get a Guinness in The Eagle and Child pub, where JRR Tokien and CS Lewis would meet along with the Inklings -- amazing to imagine them both there in the genesis of their brilliance. Third was Stonehenge -- and it was every bit as powerful and wonderful as we hoped. Having inner circle access is absolutely worth every penny. We were able to spend time at the stones after the closing of the circle to the general public -- so instead of crowds, it was just the 40 of us, being able to be in the inner circle. You cannot touch the stones, but you can get right next to them. Then the journey back to London about 90 minutes. The tour began at 11:30am and we were back in London around 9:15pm. For those with walking challenges, there is a lot of walking on this tour, and quite a few stairs as well. Oliver was a friendly and knowledgeable guide, and we learned a lot and laughed a lot too. I recommend this tour, and also to bring finger snacks since it's a long day and also a jacket and very comfortable shoes.
Excellent trip. Oliver Simmons was our tour guide and he was marvelous-- full of interesting information about each location and local history and lore. We were able to get up close to the stones-- well worth the price-- and also early in the morning. Although our day was a rainy one, we still found Stonehenge magical. The tour of Oxford was fantastic and the time at Windsor was a great way to end the day. Oliver had us on the bus early and back in London on time. Our hats off to a wonderful bus driver--Jay-- who was kind enough to wait for those of us who tended to be a few minutes late to the bus at each stop and made excellent time. We would recommend this tour to anyone who wants an efficient and informative way to see three amazing places in one day.
Awesome tour guide, well organized and fun!
Charlotte was an excellent guide, and our driver Mark did a great job, too. Our tour was on a very cold day when we even got a bit of snow...but it did not interfere with our tour. We made the best of it and still had the allotted time at each attraction. Stonehenge is amazing and we had it all, including the inner circle, to ourselves on the morning tour. Oxford stop was more interesting than I expected, as Charlotte had a great deal of interesting information to share. At Windsor Castle, Charlotte walked us in and then let us tour at our leisure, using the recorded tour info provided by Windsor Castle. All in all, a long but enjoyable day!
The inner circle access was well worth the extra cost. Touring Oxford was also a pleasant surprise and a great way to spend part of the day. We enjoyed Windsor but be aware that entrance to the castle is not included in the tour and there we felt not enough time to visit the site. Rhys was a very good tour guide. He provided plenty of information, kept the tour on time and also allowed enough quiet time on the bus for other conversations. This tour is a really great way way to see more of the country in a small amount of time.
Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The bus was very nice and the bus driver was good. Enjoyed all the places we went but I would recommend the evening tour of Stoenehenge. It was cold and very foggy, which although added to the mysteriousness of Stonehenge we could not get an ides of what the surrounding country side was like. Plus we had to get up at 4AM. But over all would highly recommend this day trip
Unfortunately one of us got sick and we weren't able to make this excursion. We did notify the group before departure but there was nothing they would do to help us out. Will try this again another time.
