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!
Charlotte was amazing! Her knowledge was amazing. Having access to the inner circle was absolutely worth the early morning.Charlotte was so helpful and made the entire day so enjoyable. This tour was a highlight of our trip and so glad we had Charlotte as our guide.
This was an awesome tour that I highly recommend. Being able to go into the inner circle of Stonehenge was amazing!
Definitely worth the early morning start to be able to walk among the stones. Everything was well organized and maximized our time at Stonehenge. Be prepared for a long day and lots of walking at Oxford and Windsor. This was a great way to see a lot of must see sights in one day.
Mystical day at Stonehenge.
The tour was amazing. Stonehenge was breathtaking. Oxford was awesome. And the castle was spectacular!
Getting inner circle access is the only way to see Stonehenge. Very great experience. It would have been a waste of time to view Stonehenge from behind ropes. Being able to walk among the stones was priceless. There was not enough time in the gift shop.
Windsor Castle was OK. Oxford was good and time was appropriate. Also found out tickets would have been 40 cheaper booking directly with Evan Evans tours.... Oh well, it was still work being able to see the Stonehenge inner circle.
