Our tour guide was especially nice and very amiable. The driver was very good. Got to witness the changeing of the guards at Windsor. Oxford was enigmatic! I'm from the Philippines and this was a dream trip. I definitely recommend. A must try when in London. I left some souvenir Items I bought on the bus. They were returned to me the following day.

Whenever I travel on holiday, I will look at Viator first! Pre-tour instructions could have been better, there was nobody to guide us at the pick up point. Tour stayed on time and kept a good, quick pace to see a lot in one day however expected more time at Windsor Castle. Amelia, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, friendly and had a good sense of humor. Michaelangelo, the driver, did a great job too. I really liked the audio device concept, could hear the guide perfectly however at Oxford there was lot of distortion!

It was a lovely day trip, and the guide Anthony and the driver Michelangelo are polite people who did their job very professionally, along with being kind and patient with the passengers. I was in a big and diverse group of passengers, and that was nice. It is a good option for those who wish to get an overview of the places (about 1.5 hrs each) for a reasonable price. Anthony is a guide with an Oxford degree (so he knows the place pretty well) and a person with traditional values, who is very passionate about history, as well as his country, and he loves to share his knowledge. So if you are looking for something like that- this is a tour for you. You are welcomed to ask all sorts of questions and get great recommendations from a local person with good taste. I would recommend bringing some (cold) food and drinks with you, because you won`t have much time to buy it. Also, when they show you the toilets and suggest you use them, that is the time to do it if you can, because there aren`t many opportunities along the way.

The tour guy Phil is very friendly and has great knowledge about history. He is articulate and turns out that to be an entertaining and educational tour for the family. The driver Mark is also courteous and with safe driving skill. The tour is a little rush though because we hit so many spots in one day. However it provides a great highlight and can always go back on our own when we return to London.

This was an insightful trip packed into one day. Busy and long day but our tour guide David and driver Steve made the day interesting, fun and I left with a taste of all three which made me want to discover more. Definitely a great day

Stonehenge was expectedly impressive and it was that and more, just amazing human feat to ponder. Windsor, if your a Royals fan, was engaging and worth the tour, more time may have been nice to see more then highlights. Oxford by end of the day was very chilly and so we skipped group tour and found a pub for fish and chips and returned to the bus when time was up.

This trip provided a great opportunity to get a taste of three wonderful landmarks. Our guide Chrissy was great and provided some great information. As mentioned in other reviews, the time is limited at each stop so you do have to move quickly in order to see everything. I had a great time and jokingly referred to this as the "cliff note" version of a tour at each stop. If you are a person who likes to take your time looking at everything, this may not be the trip for you. If you are trying to see some of the top landmarks and get a taste of them and at least see if basics, this is a great way to fit it all in one day. I would recommend bringing your lunch with you. I am glad I read this in other reviews. While there are places to buy lunch, it allowed me to use all of my time looking at what I was there to see versus standing in line to buy lunch somewhere.
