The tour guided by Bruce was purely wonderful! It covers the very popular places: Windsor, Bath & Stonehenge. But the best part of this tour is the guide. Bruce gave us great tips and never bored us; even when we had to wait for almost an hour to enter Windsor Castle, the waiting time was enjoyable with his talks, though he also gave us some quiet time to relax on the bus. I was with myself but never felt awkward as there were many solo participants as well. Just note that you may need get out of Windsor Castle earlier (in my case, within ~45mins) to go back to the bus in time if a guard change is scheduled since the gate/exit will be closed during the ceremony.

Our guide Anna Bannana and our driver Jim were great. Anna really cares, my sister gets pretty bad dust allergies and Anna took it upon herself to get her some eye drops when we stopped at Bath. My sister and I had a wonderful time. Anna and Jim were engaging and we loved talking with them. For obvious reasons, Windsor was closed but that wasn’t anyones fault. Still had a great time seeing some of England’s famous locations.

Very organized tour and guide was very helpful. The bus left an arrived on time. Unfortunately our tour of Windsor castle was cancelled since the Queen passed but we appreciate that we were still brought to the castle grounds to walk around and see tributes to the queen.

Amazing trip that covers a lot of ground. Be prepared to spend a short amount of time in each place but great if you want to see a lot and don’t have many days to do it in

Great experience! When at Stonehenge you only have an hour to see the site and it isn’t enough to shop in the gift shop. You may not want to linger too Long at the stones.
