  • From London: Windsor, Oxford & Stonehenge Full-Day Trip

    2. From London: Windsor, Oxford & Stonehenge Full-Day Trip

    The first stop on this tour is Windsor Castle. With its sweeping landscaped gardens and turreted Round Tower, it is easy to see why the castle is the Queen’s favorite weekend residence. Enjoy a fascinating through-the-keyhole peek at the lavish State Apartments, home to priceless artworks by Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci. You can also visit Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House and St George’s Chapel - the final resting place of the monarchs of old, including Henry VIII. The tour then moves onto spectacular Stonehenge. You will never forget your first glimpse of the monolithic rock formation rising up against the skyline of the Salisbury Plain. Theories abound as to Stonehenge’s mysterious origin?

  • From Oxford: Stonehenge and Bath Small-Group Tour

    3. From Oxford: Stonehenge and Bath Small-Group Tour

    Bath has been described as the Monte Carlo and the Las Vegas of Georgian England, and this tour gives you a comfortable morning to explore the city. Everything about the town’s imposing Palladian-style architecture was designed to make a striking visual impact – something that it still achieves today, hundreds of years after its construction. This UNESCO World Heritage Site never fails to wow visitors from around the world. Explore the best of the city, starting with Pulteney Bridge, the Circus, the imposing Royal Crescent and a wander inside Bath Abbey with its huge vaulted ceiling. Your knowledgeable guide will also point out the Celtic links between Bath and Stonehenge, so you leave not only with some fantastic photos but with a real understanding of the town and its landscape.   Perhaps no other site in England can compete with the beauty and mystery of Stonehenge. Hear the theories...

    Really loved this small group trip there was only 6 of us and the guide driver Freddie. The vehicle we drove in was spacious and comfortable, which was good, because it is one-and-a-half hours to Stonehenge from Oxford, and getting there early certainly helps as it was not crowded at all, and we went straight up to the Stones after a quick coffee. Our guide Freddie was very knowledgeable,and great fun with some of the stories he told. Then after a quick visit to the souvenir shop and a walk round the the information centre it was back in the the minibus and on to Bath which I think took about an hour. After a quick lunch/shop break of about 45 minutes,our guide Freddie took us on a tour of the best of Bath, again he was very knowledgeable about the city and that took about an hour and a half. Then quick restroom break and back in in the minibus to Oxford which again is about an hour and a half.

You can also choose the option to visit the home of Queen Elizabeth II, the world’s largest and oldest castle. Later, make your way to Stonehenge, its rocks rising up against the skyline on Salisbury Hill. Was this mysterious site a temple, a clock, or a burial ground? Decide for yourself as you explore the landmark that has had the world stumped for 5,000 years. Finally, head to Oxford for a walking tour.

    Tours can be a 'hit or miss' for the 'do it your self' kind of tourist, such as myself. However, given the price and time available, was very fruitful and rewarding. We got to see so much, in one day. I highly recommend it for anyone!

It was great trip, very well managed - timing was carefully balanced, so you will havs just enough time to enjoy everything. Stonehenge is a must. Windsor is breathtaking. Oxford was fine as well, not that interesting though. Our guide, Vaughn, was amazing - very well prepared, proving us with interesting information in a funny way, leading the whole trip smoothly. Greetings to the driver Tony for providing us safe and comfortable drive. Overall, I strongly recommend.
