The tour is just marvalous. Very professional and experienced tour guide. Pick up from the hotel and drop off at the convenient locations usually near subway, easy to go back to the hotel. Comfort and cleaned coach Highly recommended.
This was the first time I had gone on a guided tour by bus like this, I usually don't like being in a big group of tourists and was concerned about having to follow a guide around everywhere instead of being able to explore. I was very happy with how this tour went though, the guide was quite knowledgable and provided all of the information on the bus as we went to each stop, then set us free upon arrival and just told us when to be back by. This was perfect, having the free time was important to me and made me feel less like a tourist being herded around. The time at each stop was just enough to enjoy it and see the important parts. I would definitely book through Sightseeing Tours London again.
We went to Stonehenge and although it was a two hour drive, it was well worth the visit. Only thing is the wind was so strong I felt I was in a typhoon when we were visiting those amazing sacred rocks! Wow! An amazing feeling being there. Only wish that there wasn't the road right next to it going by this historical monument. We had an amazing driver and felt very safe and well taken care of. Clean and new bus and all was nice and easy.
It was fun, the tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was nice to be able to see Stonehenge, Oxford and Windsor Castle all in one day, but didn't get to see anything too in depth.
Stonehenge is okay just because you are so far away, it's not as breathtaking as you'd expect. Oxford was really cool, but I do wish we could have got to go inside some of the University. Windsor Castle was interesting, and I was able to get through everything - but didn't really stop too long in any one area. Overall I'd recommend if you want just a quick sightsee of all the different areas!
We picked up the tour bus in Trafalgar Square. My teens and I sat in the back, eating a to-go lunch we picked up in the Square before we got on the bus. The bus was comfortable, and the drive beautiful. When we arrived at Stonehenge, we had ample time to view Stonehenge along with the included audio guide (which was surprisingly entertaining). Afterwards, we perused the gift shop and then got an ice cream while we waited for the bus to be ready. Our only regret was that we did not have enough time to try and pet the sheep that were in a nearby field. ;-) The bus ride back, was again comfortable, and we were dropped back at Trafalgar Square. A wonderful day that my family will never forget.
Generally speaking was ok.the guide was mediocre.worst was: the only 30 minutes allocated visiting Oxford. especially as colleges were open to visitors (free entry), and the visit to Oxford was in fact a quick tour of the center. because I visited a college (for that is actually visited Oxford) breaking my group i had to go back to London with another bus (fortunately was one). Only 30 minutes allocated visiting Oxford??? unfortunately was not a joke..
The Stonehenge experience was AMAZING!!! The driver gave us amazing commentary during the journey there as well as on the journey back. He even took us to Woodhenge, a place I have always wanted to see but until now, was unable to. SOOOO much worth the £29!!! AMAZING!!!! The weather was perfect and it was just an amazing day!
We had the pleasure of James as our tour guide on our tour to Windsor Castle, Bath & Stonehenge. What we thought was going to be a long tiring day turned into a long inspiring day. James passion for England and its history was only surpassed by his knowledge of England and its history. He also gave us the heads-up on what to parts of our destinations would take more time to look at and what takes up valuable time, and where to be at, at a certain time for the most interesting parts (ie, the changing of the Guards at Windsor Castle), as we were in a tight schedule to get to all our destinations in, and with so much to look at at all our destinations, this information was most valuable. The pick-up service was fantastic, and we were able to be dropped back in the city, which was great as we could have tea in the city before heading back to our Motel. Thanks to Tim our driver for such a great day driving us around.The bus ride was smooth & comfortable, which allowed for a quick snooze between destinations.
We took an afternoon trip to stonehenge which was definately worth seeing and it was more than enough time there When i rang to confirm my booking i wasnt informed the pick upspot was changed due to the paraolympic parade. This meant more tube travel and rushing. We then waited another half hr for others who were late- nice for them frustrating for us! I would recommend this trip as value for money.
With only 3 full days in London, every minute counted. Pick up at our hotel was on-time, coaches were clean and comfortable, tour guides were pleasant and very knowledgeable. We chose two tours; Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds, the following day, Windsor Palace, Bath and Stonehenge. The tour guides shared the history of each site and some interesting stories. Everything went like clockwork, loads of great memories to go with the many pictures taken. A thoroughly enjoyable way to see places only seen in books, magazines or TV presentations. I'm ready to go back and take more tours.
A full day tour through the enchanting Cotswolds, visiting medieval Warwick Castle, Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon and a walk through the cobbled streets of Oxford. --- You didn't tell a lie. We went there all the way from Japan hoping high. You didn't betray us. My son loves swords of medieval days and Harry Potter and magic and fantasy. He's satisfied to see the great hall that was used to film Harry Potter at Oxford. As for me, I was happy to take a picture with Henry the 8th and his famous wives at Warwick. Oxford was the most memorable place. I wish I could stay longer to go shopping. I wanted to go to Alice shop nearby.... Phill, the guide was superb. His English was clear and it's easy for persons who don't use English much like us to understand well. I skipped the thing. Z mark on the stone path of Oxford has something to do with Harry Potter who has a scar of Z on his face? Anyway, I loved everything we saw. Cotswolds is the next place we'd like to go. I'm sure we are booking again!!
Leslie was such a knowledgeable, kind, and interesting tour guide. The entire tour today was wonderful, also thanks to the splendid weather. All was well organized and I learned so much about London in just one day! It's worth a semester of class! Also the driver Tome did a superb job in the busy traffic. I felt so safe in his bus!
Had a really good tour to Canterbury Cathedral, Leeds Castle, and Dover. Would have liked to have seen more of Dover, bugt had plenty of time at the other two sites. Due to the Olympics the tour pickup location changed and we did not receive notice, but lucikly the hotel we were at knew the new location and we made it in time.
We were picked up early in the morning from a hotel by a courtesy bus and made our way to the main station where we all got on our individual tour. Our tour guide could speak japanese fluently which was very interesting as she was speaking in 2 languages. We got to windsor castle first, skipped through the long queues and then made it through to bath and then finally stonehenge. It was a care free trip where everything was taken care for us and it would be an ideal way to see all 3 locations!
