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.
My two friends and I had a wonderful time on this tour. The guide gave us a lot of great information as we drove along, and pointed out many points of interest along the way.
Excellent guide and itinerary. Every site was an excellent venue. The only negative was that it was a very long day. Lacock was a very special surprise. Food was slightly above average.
It was a really good day trip, we met some new friends and had a really good time. The bus driver was excellent and our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. I liked when we were on our way back to London she came around and made sure everyone knew how to Gary back to there hotel and even gave us a tub map. The tours were fast but fun. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to see a few major sites outside if London.
Leon was really knowledgable and entertaining. I felt the time at each attraction, although short, was enough to see everything. Leon's commentary on the journey was interesting and topical.
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.
Enjoyed the tour . Didn't get to stay each place long but still had a good look around.Bit disappointed that by the time we reached Bath everything including the Baths were closing. Not sure if this was because it was a Sunday but ended up sitting in the cold and dark waiting to reboard the coach We left Victoria station just after 7-30 am and didn't get back until 10-00 in the evening. Bit long for us. Our tour guide Gavin was great .
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.
What didn't go wrong?! Tour departed late, so we didn't have enough time at Windsor Castle. Tour at Bath was limited to 45 minutes due to late departure, which didn't leave enough time to tour the Roman baths. Upon reboarding the bus in Bath, we were informed that the transmission was defective. Bus speed was limited to 15mph, so it took us 2 hours to get to lunch that was scheduled for 2:00pm, but got there at 5:00pm. On top of it, I didn't get what I had preordered. Got a replacement bus at pub where we ate lunch, but barely made it to Stonehenge before it closed. When I called Viator when I returned from my trip to England, they did nothing to rectify this nightmare. I will never use Viator again.
