From London: Stonehenge, Windsor & Bath Small Group Day Tour

1. From London: Stonehenge, Windsor & Bath Small Group Day Tour

Begin with a drive to the ancient kingdom of Wessex, where you’ll visit the world-famous Stonehenge monument. With a history spanning 5,000 years, this stone circle continues to be shrouded in mystery and myth. Your guide will tell you what is known and what may never be known about these giant stones located on Salisbury Plain. Absorb the powerful presence of this ancient site and admire the views before continuing on the drive through beautiful Wiltshire and Somerset, passing thatched cottages and idyllic villages en route to the city of Bath. Both Romans and Georgians have left their mark in Bath. The only hot thermal springs in Britain were a draw for those early invaders from warmer lands, and the Roman resort of Aqua Sulis can be seen in the Roman Baths Museum. The Georgian elite of London arrived here in the 18th century to take the waters and cure themselves of rheumatic disease and gout. The elegant squares, circuses, and crescents date from this time. After lunch and a guided tour of this delightful city you’ll continue on to Royal Windsor. The remainder of the tour will be spent in Windsor, home to the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, and the Queen’s favorite home. Your guide will give you a full account of the history of this royal residence and take you on a tour of the famous town. Walk in the footsteps of royalty and statesmen and enter the castle (closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays). Inside the castle, you can admire the fine furniture and paintings owned by Her Majesty. See Queen Mary's Dolls’ House and visit St. George's Chapel, which is the final resting place of English kings and queens, including Henry VIII and Charles I. Head back to London via historic Runnymede where the Magna Carta was sealed by King John in 1215.

A lovely tour.

Despite our rudimentary knowledge of English, we have seen and seen a lot. The taxi driver was very friendly and accommodating and was able to respond to our questions and needs. So it was a really great tour for us, not only in terms of Sherlock Holmes, but also in terms of lifestyle and the like. It was raining, there was traffic jam but the taxi driver had charm and knowledge. The

Our guide James and driver Choy, we're amazing. Very nice and helpful. My mom is in a wheelchair and Choy constantly helped with getting her up and down the van. James was considerate when picking the walking routes to our destinations. I would definitely want to be a part of there group again. I only wish we'd stayed a little longer in Stonehenge.

It was a wonderful day. Our guide Mike was amazing, super friendly and he knew his history very well. He added several anecdotes. He and the driver were professional and kind. I recommend this day. Car and private group, it was much appreciated!

The tour is definitely worth the money! We have been to so many locations and learned a lot of new things about Sherlock.

Very interesting tour. Our driver is excellent, and professional
