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.

Love the places that I booked, Katya is very knowledgeable of the places where we went. She had a lot of patience when a passenger was left behind and communicated with other tour guides for assistance.

The bus terminal in Paris is quite large with two different buildings so it took us a while before we located the right tour bus. It would have been helpful if the tour instructions included the gate number. Other than that, we really enjoyed the trip. Phil our tour guide was so knowledgeable and interesting. He kept us entertained with facts and stories for the whole day especially during the bus ride to our destinations. The line at Windsor Castle was quite long but while in line Phil told us in detail about the first few audio stops so we were able to skip those and quickly move on to the heart of the castle. The tour instructions told us to bring a lunch but this was not necessary as it was easy to pick up sandwiches and snacks as we left Windsor castle and walked back to the bus. Only disappointment was that we arrived too late in the day to go to King Cross college in Oxford. But Phil gave a good walking tour with time to stop at a few shops. Riding back to London, the driver navigated us easily through the streets to give us a bit of a tour of different areas around London such as Notting Hill. To end a great tour, Phil recommended SeaFresh restaurant and told us how to get there from the bus station. It was an awesome meal. Phil was the perfect English tour guide and he definitely made the day trip enjoyable and memorable.

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.

This was a great way to see the three attractions we wanted our granddaughter to see without renting a car. Windsor Castle was first but the line and wait was very long so our visit was shorter than expected which was disappointing. Stonehenge was an on-your-own adventure with long lines but enjoyable. Oxford was more personal and informative. Overall, a good tour with a good tour guide.

It is a jam packed day and very rushed. I was very disappointed in the lack of time at Windsor Castle. The other thing that they should have said was that the tour was in English and Japanese. You felt like there was no down time to absorb what the tour guide was saying because she was constantly talking in English or Japanese.
