Had a great time with this tour and our tour guide, Russell. Although at Stonehenge, the transportation between the visitor's center and the site needs to be better, or you just need to walk really fast to have the most time at the site. We arrived at Oxford in the dark, so I'm sure that would part of the tour would have been nicer in the daylight, but it was still nice to see the city at night.Reviewed by: Sarah H, February 2014
Nice tour!! Good guide and amazing placesReviewed by: Zhamia G, February 2014
Overall the tour was great. Sadly, there was too little time allocated for Oxford which was the main reason we booked this trip. Special thanks to the guide who was informative and very attentive to the group.Reviewed by: Ekaterina P, March 2014
Tour guide was really great but the tour itself needs to be only two of the three events. All three events causes a fly by the seat of your pants, see a little but not enjoy the sites. When at Windsor Castle you are told at the beginning don't listen to the audio guide because you don't have time, here are the highlights, go straight to the highlighted areas and meet us back at the bus.
By the time we got to Oxford and finished the walking tour we tried to go to a museum but were greeted at the museum doors with "we will be closing in 15 minutes". Didn't matter too much since we only had 30 min until our bus left.
Had there been only two events there would have been more time to enjoy the sites. Our guide did a great job with the rushed amount of time at each location but the overall tour could have been better if more time was allotted for each site.
While the locations were all excellent, the tour itself was subpar at best. First, the "custom" aspect of the tour is functionally just a way of making it look reasonably priced when it's actually quite expensive. Nothing was mentioned about taking a free walking tour of the town of Windsor, and you can't get within sight of Stonehenge without paying for a ticket, so you're essentially forced to pay an extra 25 pounds. Second, my tour ended up being - without warning - bilingual in English and Spanish. I found that annoying, since the tour guide spent twice the time necessary talking on the bus (and he would switch back and forth every 2 minutes, meaning you couldn't read or sleep while the Spanish was happening). This also meant that the Oxford walking tour, already incredibly short (it covers roughly 2-3 blocks), was functionally able to cover only 20 minutes' worth of information on a 40-minute tour. Third, the tour guide was clearly just going through a script (the text in each language was identical down to the jokes), and he did not seem very knowledgable. For example, he hadn't heard of the Rhodes Scholarship, which is the most famous international program in the world, and it has brought folks such as Bill Clinton to Oxford. Thus, the tour was essentially an incredibly overpriced shuttle bus with information that we could have just as easily gained from a 5-page tour booklet.Reviewed by: zachary m, February 2014
