Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Golden Tours, 4, Fountain Square, 121-151 Buckingham Palace Rd, Victoria, London SW1W 9SH, UK

This wonderful day trip will take you to two of the UK’s most iconic attractions and one of the world’s most famous – and charming – cities. Make sure you are in Victoria for 8am as your coach will be leaving at 8:30am sharp!

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Windsor Castle, Castle Hill, Windsor SL4 1PD England

You will get to the first stop of the day, Windsor Castle, for about 9:30am. This 900 year-old castle perches proudly on a lush wooded hill overlooking the Thames. With its sweeping landscaped gardens and imposing turret, it’s easy to see why it’s Queen Elizabeth II’s favourite weekend residence.

Duration: 1 hour 50 minutes

Stop At: St. George's Chapel, Castle Hill, Windsor England

At Windsor Castle, enjoy a fascinating through–the–keyhole peek at the lavish State Apartments, home to priceless artworks by Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci, and visit the beautifully gothic St. George’s Chapel, the atmospheric final resting place of former monarchs including Henry VIII.
The coach will leave Windsor Castle at about 11:30am to move onto the next part of your adventure.


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Stonehenge, Amesbury SP4 7DE England

From a 900 year-old castle to a 5,000 year-old monument – you’ll be taking a step even further back in time when visiting Stonehenge, to which you will get to for about 1:15pm. The true meaning of this ancient, awe-inspiring creation has been lost in the mists of time. Was Stonehenge a temple for sun worship, a healing centre, a burial site or perhaps a huge calendar? How did our ancestors manage to carry the mighty stones from so far away and then, using only the most primitive of tools, build this amazing structure? Surrounded by mystery, Stonehenge never fails to impress.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Pass By: Golden Tours, 4, Fountain Square, 121-151 Buckingham Palace Rd, Victoria, London SW1W 9SH, UK

Free lunch pack – more sightseeing time
To save you time, money and the struggle of finding somewhere to eat, our tour also includes a free lunch pack! Avoid wasting time waiting for a meal in a restaurant - it means you can make the most of each stop and won’t waste valuable exploring time.


Stop At: Radcliffe Camera, Radcliffe Square, Oxford OX1 4AJ England

For your last stop of the day – see the beautiful town of Oxford, known for being home to the English-speaking world’s oldest university. On this walking tour of Oxford, follow in the footsteps of Oxford’s famous students (such as C.S.Lewis and Bill Clinton) as you stroll through the captivating college courtyards and cobbled lanes of this historic university town.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Bodleian Library Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BG England

Take in the famous ‘city of dreaming spires’ and see the Bodleian Library – one of the oldest libraries in Europe – on your visit. You’ll be captivated by the unspoilt narrow alleys and ancient squares of this charming place.
Your coach will leave Oxford at about 5:45pm. The estimated arrival time back in London is around 7pm.


Duration: 15 minutes

Pass By: Golden Tours, 4, Fountain Square, 121-151 Buckingham Palace Rd, Victoria, London SW1W 9SH, UK

Oct 2019

Every part of this was excellent. The problem is it’s too much for one day. 2 sights in one day is a better choice

Apr 2018

The tour guide was excellent and the tour hit all the highlights at each of these areas.

Feb 2018

This was the best tour I’ve ever been on. The guide was so sweet and funny, and her knowledge of the three areas was priceless. We had a nice lunch provided and the tour bus was super comfy. Would recommend 10/10!

Such an amazing tour.

I brought a strong lens for my camera thinking we would be very far from Stonehenge but boy was I wrong. We were so close that my phone was suitable enough for photos.

I felt like it was adequate time at each of the three locations so no complaints there. Also something about the bus driver's skills or the comfortable seats made it impossible to stay awake between cities but much needed rest is nothing to complain about!

Also I have to give kudos to our guide. He was hands down the BEST part of our tour! He was funny and cheeky in a way that only an older British man wearing a hat with a flower in it can be.

I would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone who has a day to spare in London!!!

Oct 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The tour guide's knowledge was amazing and he was very entertaining. I would highly recommend tour. One drawback. I wish we could have stayed at least another hour in Oxford. So much left to see and explore there.

first of all we would like to commend our tour guide, the very eloquent and engaging EUGENE aka “EUGE” and our equally very good driver MARIUS. if not for them, we would not have rated the tour as such. The time allotted for the Windsor Castle (around 2 hours) was enough for a tour like this but because of the vast places to see inside the area, one will be overwhelmed and will get carried away forgetting the time allotment given for each tourist. The Stonehenge part was given enough time (around 40 minutes). The last part of the tour was the Oxford part and the time allotted for this walking tour is not enough (around1 1/2 hours). I guess you have to have another separate tour just for Oxford alone!Despite the limited time we had for Windsor Castle and Oxford, our tour guide gave us very extensive information which have compensated for the inadequate time we had for the tour. i would still recommend this tour highly to others and if they get the same tandem of tour guide and driver like ours I bet you are indeed in such good luck like ours!There is just one thing we forgot to ask them, how many years did it take for them to master their each craft (tour guiding for Euge and driving for Marius). We had such a good time and it was an early Christmas gift for us indeed!More power to you guys!Family of four, PhilippinesDecember 2018

The views and locations of the trip where incredible! As they would have been had we gone on our own without a guide. Other than the easy of transportation our guide was not very good. Within the first 10 minutes of the guide he had called New York a liar, the USWNT cheaters and Americans traitors. I’ve been on a plethora of other guided tours and this one by far was the worse. In addition to the insults, the mic on our first bus was broken so after Stonehenge we switched buses. Our bus drivers awful driving causes a member of my party to feel ill and when we were actually guided through somewhere (Oxford) our guide really only showed us the stuff he found interesting. Stonehenge, Windsor castle and university of oxford were incredible to see and explore!! I only wish our guide was more enjoyable.

Jul 2018

Horrible experience. Will not recommend Viator or Golden Tours the subcontractor. Very disappointed. Horrible! Horrible! Horrible!

Jun 2018

Windsor castle was closed the day we were schedule for tour. I think we should of been told before hand andnot as we boarded the bus. We should of had the chance to change the date of our tour if given notice of the closure. Hampton Castle was the alternative which in no way is compared to Windsor castle. Very disappointed.
We were more in the back of the bus and the tour guide would get out of the bus and start walking and talking before we ever got out of the bus. The group had no headsets so missed half of what she was saying by the time we and others caught up to her. She was not aware of the group as a whole and showed no concern that everyone was not together.
Oxford was an interesting town but she lead us on a half hour quick tour then we had a half hour on our own. It was not nearly enough time. I would advice anyone with the time to do them separately. There was enough time at stonehedge.

The tour guide seemed very knowledgeable but we didn't get to spend much time with him-so it was like he was a chaperone instead I'd guide. The tour felt rushed and I would not recommend it, especially to anybody with disability. The lunch was also not very good
