Our guide James and driver Choy, we're amazing. Very nice and helpful. My mom is in a wheelchair and Choy constantly helped with getting her up and down the van. James was considerate when picking the walking routes to our destinations. I would definitely want to be a part of there group again. I only wish we'd stayed a little longer in Stonehenge.

Bruce was great! Knows many things and very personable. I was disappointed that the Salisbury portion was cut out, but it was a full complete day regardless.

Very comfortable bus with good driver.Very friendly and also helpful guide.I found out a lot new for me historical facts and discovered new places.

September is a good time to go with fewer people there. The chapel closes earlier than we thought so see it first or plan your time accordingly.

It was awesome from start to finish. A must do when you are in Windsor. Fabulous.
