Leave your central London hotel for your cruise departure at Southampton Port, stopping to visit Stonehenge on the way! The prehistoric stone circle, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, sits roughly half-way between London and Southampton, making it an ideal stop before your cruise. Explore this intriguing monument at leisure, pondering its many mysteries before arriving at Southampton Port.

Leave your central London or Heathrow hotel by luxury coach and relax on the journey west, passing through London’s busy urban metropolis and into the peaceful Wiltshire countryside.

While traveling, your tour manager will give you some insights into Wiltshire’s most intriguing relic – Stonehenge – and explain a few of the theories about the building of this Megalithic stone circle.

After traveling for roughly 1.5 hours, arrive at Stonehenge and spend time exploring this incredible site independently. While strolling around this UNESCO World Heritage Site, ponder the tales your tour manager told you earlier, and make up your own mind about how and why it came to stand. Was it built as an astrological observatory, or was it perhaps intended as a sacred burial place? How did the gigantic Sarsen stones get to the site when no machinery existed to transport them?

At the pre-arranged time, meet your tour manager back on the coach and then relax on the journey to Southampton on England’s coast. Your guide will drop you off right outside Southampton cruise terminal in time for your cruise.

Communication was outstanding from beginning to end. Emails concerning our meeting spot were promptly answered and a very convenient location was arranged. Paul met us with a welcome sign and off we went in the van to pick up several other travelers then we went to the meeting place for the transfer coach. Paul showed us sights in the area including Hyde Park. Katie was our guide. She was very knowledgeable and her information about Stonehenge and Salisbury was helpful and interesting. She went with us to the Stones and even volunteered to take pictures of us! We had time to stop at the gift shop and get a cold snack for the coach ride to Southampton. I highly recommend this tour transfer for cruisers.

Our guide and driver (Voichek and Martin) were wonderful and made the trip to the port very enjoyable. It was a great way to get to see a world landmark and get to the ship from our central London hotel.

Highly recommended for transport from London to cruise port. It wasn't a terribly long time spent at Stonehenge, only about 90 minutes. So if you desire a longer Stonehenge experience, it might be better to choose a different excursion. But it was plenty of time for us to visit the monument and have a little something to eat.

Both guide Reeta and driver Neal were excellent!

Our guide Oz, was a history major and very informative, but at the same time let you form your own opinions about how the Rock's got there. There's more to do than just look at rocks

Amazed by placement of stones but much smaller that imagined.
