What people are saying about Lacock
This was a very good tour-showed us lots of different areas-we were picked up at a hotel near ours which was very nice and then proceeded to the bus station. Our guide was very good and gave lots of interesting facts about our destinations and the places we were driving through. Our bus driver was very accommodating too. Even dropping off at a third point after the tour. Our pub meal was descent and the beer we purchased was great. The one problem with our tour was three USA couples who insisted on talking for most of our trip WHILE our tour guide was talking-we had a double decker bus-so she didn't hear them-their selfish behaviour ruined parts of the trip for a large group of people. They would just not stop talking. They were such inconsiderate, rude and ignorant people. Not thinking that others paid for this trip too. Their audacity was incredulous!
This tour was awesome however note that you do not get to Stonehenge for the sunrise. Meeting time was 5am and it was about an hour and half - two hour drive. So the sun was already up. Either way this was a great tour because you got inner circle access to be amongst the stone (they are very very strict about NOT touching the stones and have security to make sure if it). Lucy our tour guide was amazingly knowledgeable and a powerful leader with a 50 person group. She ensured we had plenty of potty breaks and ran her tour seamlessly in partnership with the bus driver Julio.
We enjoyed the whole trip very much. It was very well-organized and we´ve got a brief insight into all places we went, although we had not too much time to spend at every location. But thanks to our very commited and well-informed guide we learnt a lot of interesting details not only about the places we went, but about London/Britain in general (and we had no problem at all understanding every word although English is not our first language!!). A really good way for London-visitors to see more from the UK - very highy recommended!!
We went to Hampton court instead of Windsor, personally I would have preferred Windsor (told in advance) but Hampton was beautifull as well with alot of interesting history. What really made the tour above and beyond was Gavin, he was personable, respectfull, knowledgeable, and knew how to think on his feat to make sure any problems that arose did not affect the tour. He was extremely professional and made the day one to remember. Make sure go get Gavin if you want to have an enjoyable time!
The trip was fabulous considering we can cover 4 important places within 1 day , ideal from people who are short in time and would prefer to catch up. On the downside, you don't get opportunity to spend enough quality time at this historic places , but that is the call we have to make places vs quality time. The coach was good, driver was a safe driver and most importantly the tour guide was good and knowledgeable.
