We had a really great tour with Sacha, an anthropologist with a cool Catalonian accent who knew a ton about the places we went, and who also was very good at running a coach tour. Certain elements like knowing when to talk, when to let people sleep, how to wake them up softly with music, and how to keep people in line, were handled perfectly by her, better than any other coach tour I've been on (and I've been on a lot). And, she did the whole tour in both English and Spanish! Truly a remarkable tour guide.
As for the tour itself, Windsor Castle is the place to see in southern England. It has the pomp of Versailles, except that it's a real medieval castle and not a fake new palace from only a couple hundred years ago. Stonehenge is what you expect. Not worth spending a ton of time at, but we got the right amount of time to see it, stuff our faces with a sandwich, and buy some souvenirs for friends. And then Sacha really came alive for our walking tour of Oxford, which she clearly loves. We then got free time at Oxford, which me and my wife spent entirely in Oxford's famous book shop, where we got like five books. This was an amazing tour, and probably the best day of the six we spent based out of London!
Saul was amazing. He communicated all highlights and information in an excellent manner. Saul and Brian (our driver) were both very professional and timely in getting our group to all of the destinations and meeting points.
The bus was comfortable and clean. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
My mother and I had such a great day. Seeing such different sites, Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford. Robert was a wonderful guide, he had great stories and it was amazing to see and hear the history simultaneously. It was just a wonderful day. It's important to know you're really just getting awesome tastes of these places. If you want to really spend the day at one of these sites I would def plan accordingly because time is short at these visits, but if your goal is to see as much as you can over the course of a day, this is the tour for you. Wonderful day.
Loved every minute. Catia our guide was wonderful, so much knowledge. She was a non stop source of information with a great sense of humor.
We had a fabulous day touring Windsor, Stonehenge and Oxford with Claudia as tour guide and Kevin as the bus driver. Claudia was wonderful historian well organized and a pleasure to deal with! Made our day of touring very pleasant!
Three classic — must see — sights in England in a single day trip. Early start assured us of early entry to Windsor Castle avoiding long lines later in the morning. Stonehenge visit was made most informative by our archeologically trained guide! Very knowledgeable. Walking tour of Oxford capped a fun-filled day. This is a tour worth scheduling; unlike some, you cannot do this on your own. We had a large group and they handled it well. Only negative comment is that tour organizers need to plan for odd family groupings by not trying to fill EVERY seat on the bus. With NO flexibility, and every seat filled, some family groups and couples were unable to be seated together. For what the tour costs, the tour company doesn’t need to squeeze every £ out of each tour by filling every seat. I hope they are listening and not merely future tour participants.
This tour was every bit of 12 hours which except for no lunch break was a very enjoyable day. Peter and Andras were a great team getting us around and keeping us informed with rare style and humor. We had just enough time to visit Windsor Castle (keep in mind no photos on the inside) Stonehenge we had plenty of time and Bath instead of Oxford plenty of time. It was never explained to us why we did not go to Oxford. At each location Peter got us started and then we were off which if we had stayed as a group of 50 or more people we never would have seen anything. There was no time for lunch and hot food was not allowed on the bus so bring plenty of snacks. The only extended drive was from Bath back to London. Each of these sites are easily accessible on your own which made this tour a great appetizer for future visits.
I really enjoyed the visit to these three place, especially Stonehenge. The time that you have in each plave is enough, and the guide Saul Zamora was great.
The only 'but': The coach (bus) was not very comfortable.
Not sure I would take this type of tour again as three sites is a bit too much for one day. We arrived very early to visit Windsor Castle and had to stand outside in the cold as it wasn’t open yet. Had to rush through to get back to the bus which was parked quite a distance away. The tour guide, Sasha, was very flamboyant. I enjoy her energy but some members of my family thought she was very silly and difficult to understand. For the two older members of my family, there was a lot of walking and rushing. That should’ve been noted in the description of the tour.
Not nearly enough description on the website as to where to meet up with the tour group at Victoria Coach Station.We arrived at 750 and were still left behind.Had to catch up on another Evan Evans bus.
