The guide Paulie was highly entertaining and informative, as well as very good at getting us to our destinations with our driver Elvio in a very timely manner so we didn’t have to wait long in line. The trip portions to Windsor Castle and Bath provided a nice overview of each place (each could easily be a whole day trip itself) and the perfect amount of time at Stonehenge. Lovely day spent!

Nicolas and Florian made this trip a pleasant one. Nicolas has a good sense of humor that made the journey fun (no boring moment). Nicolas is a history buff and we learned a lot about the places we’ve seen, more than expected. I recommend this duo to any first-timers to London and to those who want to see places outside London. Two thumbs way up!

Thank you Maria for making our trip a beautiful experience. You were very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly! And thank you to Germaine for getting us to our destinations safely.

Our guide Richard is really nice and professional, he has provided a lot of helpful information and offered to help all of us at all times. Highly recommend.

Day trip was amazing, I liked too much, but I wanted more time in Bath. Any way, the experience is very good, I recommend!
