Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, and Medieval Village of Lacock Including Traditional Pub Lunch
Reviewed by: Valentyna L, June 2014
This tour combines amazing places, so I can highly recommend it. Everything was very well organized. Also, we liked the lunch option. The food choices are made on the bus and then guide calls the restaurant and places the order; so once we arrived to the restaurant, the lunch was ready for us. My only one issue was that we were asked to pay extra for any drink during the lunch other than tap water. With the price tag for this trip, few GBP for the drink would be a nice gesture from the company. We have been on similar trips with Viator in Italy and if the trip included lunch, the drink was free.

Everything went fine and lunch was very good.

Windsor Castle, the Chapel, and the gardens are all beyond description. Be sure to watch the changing of the guard, and the parade. Bath was nice, be aware of the extra charge and line to see the Roman Baths.
Stonehenge was remarkable in its own way, be sure to use the audioguide to get the most from it.

Totally Awesome! What a great way to see the countryside of England during a London Trip. We traveled 350 miles that day by luxury Coach and only had a couple hours at each location, but it was a fantastic sampling of what's out there. Windsor Castle is amazing, Bath is incredible, Lacock was mesmerizing and Stonehenge was super cool. Thank you to Shirley our guide and Malcolm our driver. They made the trip fantastic. YES ITS A LONG DAY, but what a great value this was. I highly recommend this trip. FYI, you will see actual Harry Potter film locations in Lacock and Jane Eyre's stomping grounds and home in Bath. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

This was a great way to see the English countryside and to see 4 wonderful tourist attractions in one day. It is a long day with lots of walking, but you will not find a better way to experience Bath, Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, and the Village of Lacock in one day. The lunch was filling and we were able to walk around Lacock and see where several scenes from Harry Potter movies were filmed.

The other Reviewers have it right. this is a fast paced trip across the country that lets you get the highlights with some history and our guides political slant thrown in for good measure. If you can follow directions, be on time, move quickly when necessary and have little time to see these amazing sites then this is the tour for you. We loved it all, even with David's political views thrown in. He's not shy, is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and knows EVERYONE and everything about these destinations. This means we got the BEST opportunity to see the most amazing sites with an appreciation few get to experience or realize they did. His willingness to gift us with his special privileges and insider knowledge transferred a potentially mundane whirlwind tour into phenomenal experience. Also our bus driver was able to negotiate areas that other's were not.
Most of us listened when David suggested the better meal at the Laycock pub (He was correct). and it was fabulous. The service was great, the inn charming and food terrific. Harry Potter got it right.
The only draw back was the tour was to be a small group. There must have been a guide issue because we were 2 small groups of 35 mashed into a single group. David made it work well almost almost all of us stayed together. (being late to the bus was grounds for dismissal). The trade off of a larger group was worth it to have David as our guide.

My daughter and I really enjoyed this tour. It was a lot to take in, but we were at Windsor castle right away so we could see it without the lines. And we were able to see the changing of the guard before we left. Stonehenge was interesting. The village of Lacock was delightful and the Beef Wellington very tasty. The only thing I would do different is switch up and go to Stonehenge on the way home. By the time we got to Bath, a lovely city and experience, many things were closing. It was a great tour to see the countryside and some fascinating sights out of London.
