Excellent trip, Richard and Nadia were excellent. I don't know how Richard remembers so much information, but he's an excellent guide and kept us safe and happy. Absolute gentleman. The buses were very nice with phone charging abilities, and the sites themselves were great. We got a lot done in the time allotted, and I would highly recommend a go!

The tour was fabulous. Our guide, Patty was awesome and knowledgeable. It wasn't very crowded so we were able to really get a good look at everything. We even saw the Changing of the Guard. Our driver, Michaelangelo was friendly and most importantly relaxed and safe!

Sacha, our tour guide, was funny, very helpful, very knowledgeable and passionate about her job. She even gave us history information while in line outside the Windsor castle while waiting for it to open, compared to the other tour guides from other companies who were around who were quiet.

Each stop was rushed and the weather made it unpleasant - don’t go in February. But Nicholas, our tour guide was wonderful which is why I gave this 4 stars. He was entertaining, funny and very knowledgeable. He made the 6.5 hours in the bus enjoyable vs the 4.5 hours we spent at the sites (yes, that is how the time was split between travel and touring)

The tour was safe. Safety is the most important thing. The guide and the bus driver are very nice you can count on. But it’s kind of rush to visit three places in one day trip especially when these places are far apart. We ended up only an hour or so at Oxford and had to turn back after driving two hours on the road from Stonehenge, while an hour was wasted waiting for the door open At Windsor in the morning. Maybe a better time planning should be considered.
