Quick Fun Trip

Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Oxford Day Trip from London
Leslie, our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The bus was clean and comfortable and the tourist attractions very interesting. It would have been nice to spend more time at Windsor Castle, but with the time/travel constrains I’m not sure that is possible. Evans Tours were helpful and easy to communicate with.

Good tour, but rushed

Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Salisbury and City of Bath Tour
This was a good tour if you want a little taste of each place. You only get an hour or 45 min in each place. The tour is very rushed. Make sure you bring a lunch or get one at the first stop, Windsor Castle. You have such a small amount of time at each place that it makes it hard to find a place to eat. The bus ride is really long too. Our guide Anna was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed her wit and humor!

Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace Tour
Great tour. The tour guide, Carmen, was wonderful in explaining all the steps of the tour prior departure. Her knowledge of historical facts were very accurate. Hampton Court tour should be longer, very interesting. Windsor Castle was crowded, as expected.

Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Bath Tour from London with Admission
The tour director (Nickolas) did a great job of presenting on the trip. The only negative was that we arrive at Windsor Castle so late in the day that many of the shops had shut down for the day.

Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace Tour
Hampton Court and Windsor from London was a great day. It wasn't too long or too rushed at either stop, with plenty of time to look around, enjoy the audio tour, and get any meals or snacks we wanted while there. This tour made it easy to add the experiences of Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle to our stay in London.

Custom private tour Windsor Castle, Salisbury and Stonehenge

Private Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Bath from London
My family of five had an amazing time with our guide Lynton. First we went to Windsor Castle. We got to see a shortened version of changing of the guard because of the heat. From there he gave a choice to go to Bath or Salisbury. We choose Salisbury because we wanted a low key afternoon. We saw the church with the magna carta and had a lovely lunch at a country side pub. From there we went to Stonehenge. Wow what a wonderful excursion.
