Stop At: Stonehenge, Amesbury SP4 7DE England

Step back 5,000 years in time to prehistoric Britain as our guide helps bring the history of this fascinating monument to life. Who built Stonehenge? Why was it built?

Come face-to-face with a 5,500-year-old man and visit the world-class exhibition centre, with 250 ancient objects on display.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Christ Church, St. Aldates, Oxford OX1 1DP England

Christ Church is a constituent college of the University of Oxford in England. Christ Church is a joint foundation of the college and the Cathedral of the Oxford diocese, which serves as the college chapel and whose dean is ex officio the college head.

Pass By: Bodleian Library Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BG England

The Bodleian Library is the main research library of the University of Oxford, and is one of the oldest libraries in Europe. With over 12 million items, it is the second-largest library in Britain after the British Library.

Stop At: Windsor Castle, Castle Hill, Windsor SL4 1PD England

Our first stop is Windsor Castle, the ancestral home of the British Royal family for more than 900 years and the largest, continuously occupied castle in Europe. Marvel at the splendour of the State Apartments, the grandest apartments in England, where paintings by Van Dyck and Rubens hang from the walls and the ceilings are painted with elaborate, magnificent murals.

Step inside St George’s Chapel, where HRH Prince Harry married Ms Meghan Markle and the tombs of prominent previous monarchs are located, including Henry VIII and Charles I. Don’t miss a colourful display of typical British pageantry that takes place every morning at the Changing the Guard ceremony, where the handover of duties between guards to the Queen takes place. If Her Majesty is in Windsor during your visit, you may be lucky enough to see the Royal Standard flying on the flagpole of the Round Tower.

Rowan and James were a fantastic team. If you ever have Rowan as your tour guide you will be in for a fun day. She is very charismatic. She was funny, witty and extremely knowledgeable. I’ve gone on many tours and never had a guide as good as her.
Highly recommend the tour as well as the guide.

We saw three great landmarks in just one day, which wouldn’t be possible without very good planning and organization. It was amazing! Our guide was just the best! He knew so much about each of the locations and shared his knowledge with us in a most educational and fun way!!! We LOVED it!

Saccha was an excellent tour guide for my tour to Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford. She was very knowledgeable about the locations and English history. She was also filled with energy and enthusiasm which made the tour even more enjoyable and took the time to answer any questions throughout the day. Would highly recommend this tour if you have the time while visiting London.

We had a really great tour with Sacha, an anthropologist with a cool Catalonian accent who knew a ton about the places we went, and who also was very good at running a coach tour. Certain elements like knowing when to talk, when to let people sleep, how to wake them up softly with music, and how to keep people in line, were handled perfectly by her, better than any other coach tour I've been on (and I've been on a lot). And, she did the whole tour in both English and Spanish! Truly a remarkable tour guide.

As for the tour itself, Windsor Castle is the place to see in southern England. It has the pomp of Versailles, except that it's a real medieval castle and not a fake new palace from only a couple hundred years ago. Stonehenge is what you expect. Not worth spending a ton of time at, but we got the right amount of time to see it, stuff our faces with a sandwich, and buy some souvenirs for friends. And then Sacha really came alive for our walking tour of Oxford, which she clearly loves. We then got free time at Oxford, which me and my wife spent entirely in Oxford's famous book shop, where we got like five books. This was an amazing tour, and probably the best day of the six we spent based out of London!

Saul was amazing. He communicated all highlights and information in an excellent manner. Saul and Brian (our driver) were both very professional and timely in getting our group to all of the destinations and meeting points.
The bus was comfortable and clean. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
