Absolutely amazing! Our tour guide Gavin was just awesome. The bus driver Ricardo was excellent. I highly recommend this trip with Gavin. He was funny, had a wealth of knowledge of English History and was so helpful!! He and Ricardo helped get us a taxi from our drop off point at night while we waited in the cold!! Amazing service! Make sure you ask for Gavin. Stonehenge/Windsor Castle/Bath was stunning. The Lacock lunch of fish and chips at the Old George Inn was excellent. Mohammad Khan.
Is a full day tour that allows you to see three important spots of England. You spend the whole day but is worth it!
Our tour guide was amazing, there was a last min change in itinerary, but had a great experience none the less
My wife and I took this tour in December 2019. Be aware that due to winter, it is cold and the daylight hours are shorter (8:00 am to 4:00 pm). By 4:00 pm, it is already night time.
I would say this is recommended for someone who would like to maximize their time in the UK since it touches on Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, quaint little town of Lacock and Bath. However, be aware that because of the schedule, time spent at each location tends to be short so we were rushing through most of the journey in an effort to be on schedule. Here's my review on each location:
WINDSOR CASTLE: Personally, I wish we spent more time at Windsor Castle. We arrived 9:00 am which was early and had to wait in line for the castle to open and because it was in December, it was freezing cold. The benefit of getting in early was that you are one of the first to get in and lines were shorter. Unfortunately, because we had to keep schedule, we only had about 1.5 hours there - not enough to tour Windsor Castle.
STONEHENGE: Amazing to see this heritage structure. It was nice to finally see this in person.
LACOCK: Lunch at Lacock was great and touring the little village was amazing. Seeing structures from the 14th century still standing today was a joy. Lunch options include Mushroom Risotto, Shepherd's Pie, Fish and Chips. I chose Fish and Chips, my wife took Mushroom Risotto. Some of the structures at Lacock had been featured in movies so it was cool to see those.
BATH: At the last leg of our tour, we enjoyed Bath's Christmas setting and shops. We went to Bath Abbey (free) and toured the streets shop by shop. Roman Baths unfortunately isn't free so we didn't go anymore.
RECOMMENDED: For people who just want to see the most in single day who don't mind the hurried schedule.
NOT RECOMMENDED: For people who like to take time to enjoy each location.
I'm so glad I booked this excursion for myself and friend. It was long but so worth it and the tour guide, Clive was incredible. The coach bus was comfy and had a bathroom on-board in case of emergencies but we stopped at each location and used the bathroom so no worries. Lunch was in a cute pub. The driver had us ahead of schedule, smooth driver for the rainy weather we were experiencing.
Hands down the places we visited were breathtaking and so much history we learned along the way. THANK YOU PREMIUM TOURS! This made our trip.
This is a very fast paced tour, that I will recommend you to do it only if you have no choice like us. We were on the rush all the time, except when on the bus. We got left behind at Stonehenge because we were 4 minutes late, and had to caught up the tour at Bath. There are other buses from the same tour company, and one of them gave us a ride to Bath. The places were packed with visitors, I don't think this would have been a doable tour in the summer when there are even more tourists. Missed the lunch at Lacock, but others in the bus told us it was ok. We ate at the Kitchen of Bath restaurant in Bath while waiting for the tour and it was excellent. If I have to do it again I will break this in 2 days, with 2 places per day. I feel we just stop and go and didn't got to enjoy must of anything and missed the visit to Lacock.
Very good value for money, would definitely do this again and recommend to others, the highlight was the way the tour guide brought the trip to life
This tour was very well-executed and allowed us to see some incredible sights! But as with anything else, there are pros and cons.
First the highlights: the driver did an excellent job getting us from stop to stop, and the guide was very knowledgeable. It’s about 2.5 hours from London to Bath, and about 1 hour from London to Windsor, so there’s quite a bit of driving and coordination.
Windsor Castle is stunning and very ornate and regal. It’s truly impressive. The art, the exterior of the castle, the furnishings, all of it is very impressive.
Stonehenge is very mysterious. No one knows how it came to be, and probably never will. It’s truly a sight to see!
Now for the lowlights: it’s not the fault of the tour operator, but because Windsor is so popular on the heels of the recent royal wedding, there are massive lines to get in. As a result, you have to wait outside for about 40 minutes to be amongst the first to get in and to maintain the right schedule (four stops in 12 hours). This would’ve been ok, except it was quite cold outside, about 40F, and a little bit rainy (misty, drizzly rain). And although the guide did inform us of a wait, it was a bit rough.
There’s a pub lunch at the George Inn in Lacock, which is the oldest pub (or one of them), and while the waitstaff did a great job of getting food out quickly (you order in advance from the bus), the food was mediocre at best. Sort of cafeteria style. Not that I was expecting fine dining, but I ate significantly better fish and chips at a random pub by my Airbnb, and it was 10X better and cost about 10£. Also, a beer was not included, but only cost 5£ which is reasonable. But that being said, they could charge you another $5 or so for your tour and include one drink. Only water was included.
Bath is very quaint, but because the sun sets in the winter around 4:30pm (again, not anyone’s fault), by the time we got there it was pitch black. And again, it was quite cold. The Bath museum is interesting, but nothing to write home about. Although seeing the Roman baths is somewhat worthwhile. I felt like there wasn’t a lot to do/see in Bath other than the abbey and museum.
Bottom line: for about $250 per couple, it’s a very good value, and a great way to see Windsor and Stonehenge, but I could’ve done without Bath and Lacock (where the pub is). Also, it’s a very long day, over 12 hours, so keep that in mind when you book this.
We got only 50 mins for the Windsor castle, first stop of the day. The Tour guide left most of the group alone after security check. Had to navigate on one's own without knowing the way, etc. One expects guide to ''guide'' the group as a whole and atleast be visible in each location. She disappeared at every single location after getting off the bus and saying, you are on your own and the bus leaves at what magic time. A guide with the group is more helpful than one not there. Wouldn't advise this tour in this season. FIrst two spots in daylight, Balance two after sunset - the experience wasn't worth the money paid for the additional two spots.
We took the tour on Dec28, 2019
To start the day- The internet is not working. A few people asked the guide about it and the answer varied from "it is spotty so keep trying" in the beginning to "I have other problems to take care of and this is not on my priority list right now".
Through out the journey from Victoria Station to Windsor the guide told us to sit in the same seats as now on return and repeated this instructions twice while we were waiting to get inside. So on returning we went to our hard earned (think getting up early morning and reaching well before time) seats but found an American family sitting there. They were amongst the 12 above and the guide told them to sit anywhere they wanted. We asked them to move bit they behaved in the stereotypical obnoxious American tourist manner. When we asked the tour guide to implement his own policy the refrain was I am trying to get this tour on schedule and this is the least of my problem. Lovely the customer is the least of his problems especially when the cause of that problem is he himself. We kept insisting, so he makes an announcement again but the "entitled ones" don't bother. The driver Nunu (the only saving grace of this tour) tries but the faux royalty gets abusive with him demanding him to drive them back to London immediately. We decided to be the adults and give up our seats.
So we sit in the worst possible seats separated as a family for the rest of the tour of which most is spent in the bus.
The reason I give one star is because of Nunu the driver. He has a calm head on his shoulders, drove us and brought us back safely with not even a jerk. Some of those roads were brutal but he did an excellent job negotiating.
