Description
After an early morning pickup from central London, begin your journey to Southampton where you will board the 10:00am Red Funnel Ferry to East Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Arrive at approximately 12:00pm and travel to Osborne House, entrance is included. Have some free time to explore the palace, which was built between 1845 and 1851 for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a summer home and rural retreat. Then, continue on to Sandown and check into your hotel. The remainder of the afternoon and evening is left to your leisure to discover the seaside town.

After breakfast in the hotel the next day, meet your tour manager at approximately 9:00am for another day of sightseeing. Visit the seaside resort of Shanklin where you will be able to explore the famous Old Village before continuing on to Ventnor, another seaside town, known to be the highest point on the Isle of Wight, built on steep slopes and cliffs leading down to the sea. Then, venture to the other side of the island where you will be able to get some great photos of the isle's famous Needle, a row of three distinctive stacks of chalk that rise out of the sea. After a full day of exploring, travel to the ferry port for a 5:30pm ferry crossing back to Southampton. The expected arrival time back in London is approximately 9:00pm.

Ann was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. She obviously loves her island.

Osborne House was great but some of the other stops were too long with little to see. The hotel was very basic with average breakfast. Being sailors we would have liked to have some time at Cowes.

Anything that could have gone wrong with this tour did. We were late leaving London. We missed the boat. The driver just waited around and didn't try and get the bus on board. The passengers had to find out what was wrong and contact the company. When we finally got on the boat 2 hours late the bus didn't get on board so we then had to walk to the first stop. We missed one of the stops because there wasn't enough time to include it. I would not recommend this tour company at all.

The tour guide wasn't good and acting like a teacher. Didn't get much time to spend on the Needles as the guide was always in a rush and kept shouting. I recommend everyone to check the weather and then book this trip, the place is really nice.
