The tour was well organized and the tour guide knowledgeable and engaging. We were blessed with great weather which added to the experience. The history of the sites visited was impressive.

A full day tour through the enchanting Cotswolds, visiting medieval Warwick Castle, Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon and a walk through the cobbled streets of Oxford. --- You didn't tell a lie. We went there all the way from Japan hoping high. You didn't betray us. My son loves swords of medieval days and Harry Potter and magic and fantasy. He's satisfied to see the great hall that was used to film Harry Potter at Oxford. As for me, I was happy to take a picture with Henry the 8th and his famous wives at Warwick. Oxford was the most memorable place. I wish I could stay longer to go shopping. I wanted to go to Alice shop nearby.... Phill, the guide was superb. His English was clear and it's easy for persons who don't use English much like us to understand well. I skipped the thing. Z mark on the stone path of Oxford has something to do with Harry Potter who has a scar of Z on his face?
Anyway, I loved everything we saw. Cotswolds is the next place we'd like to go. I'm sure we are booking again!!

With only 3 full days in London, every minute counted. Pick up at our hotel was on-time, coaches were clean and comfortable, tour guides were pleasant and very knowledgeable. We chose two tours; Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds, the following day, Windsor Palace, Bath and Stonehenge. The tour guides shared the history of each site and some interesting stories. Everything went like clockwork, loads of great memories to go with the many pictures taken. A thoroughly enjoyable way to see places only seen in books, magazines or TV presentations. I'm ready to go back and take more tours.

Generally speaking was ok.the guide was mediocre.worst was: the only 30 minutes allocated visiting Oxford. especially as colleges were open to visitors (free entry), and the visit to Oxford was in fact a quick tour of the center. because I visited a college (for that is actually visited Oxford) breaking my group i had to go back to London with another bus (fortunately was one). Only 30 minutes allocated visiting Oxford??? unfortunately was not a joke..

Had a really good tour to Canterbury Cathedral, Leeds Castle, and Dover. Would have liked to have seen more of Dover, bugt had plenty of time at the other two sites. Due to the Olympics the tour pickup location changed and we did not receive notice, but lucikly the hotel we were at knew the new location and we made it in time.

It was good deal to get 48hours ticket and see the whole london with open bus. They had live comentary as well as recorded. All in all it was good.

We went to Stonehenge and although it was a two hour drive, it was well worth the visit. Only thing is the wind was so strong I felt I was in a typhoon when we were visiting those amazing sacred rocks! Wow! An amazing feeling being there. Only wish that there wasn't the road right next to it going by this historical monument. We had an amazing driver and felt very safe and well taken care of. Clean and new bus and all was nice and easy.

I really enjoyed the audio tour, but the "live" commentator was difficult to understand. Enjoyed the boat tour as well.

We had the pleasure of James as our tour guide on our tour to Windsor Castle, Bath & Stonehenge. What we thought was going to be a long tiring day turned into a long inspiring day. James passion for England and its history was only surpassed by his knowledge of England and its history. He also gave us the heads-up on what to parts of our destinations would take more time to look at and what takes up valuable time, and where to be at, at a certain time for the most interesting parts (ie, the changing of the Guards at Windsor Castle), as we were in a tight schedule to get to all our destinations in, and with so much to look at at all our destinations, this information was most valuable. The pick-up service was fantastic, and we were able to be dropped back in the city, which was great as we could have tea in the city before heading back to our Motel. Thanks to Tim our driver for such a great day driving us around.The bus ride was smooth & comfortable, which allowed for a quick snooze between destinations.

The tour is just marvalous. Very professional and experienced tour guide. Pick up from the hotel and drop off at the convenient locations usually near subway, easy to go back to the hotel.
Comfort and cleaned coach

My tour was completely enjoyable; the tour guide Sheila was engaging, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
The tour guides were very friendly and informative. They made sure that we stuck to time without being too regimental. I am born & bred in London but learned soooo much about England on these tours! Will definitely go on another one with this company!

This was the first time I had gone on a guided tour by bus like this, I usually don't like being in a big group of tourists and was concerned about having to follow a guide around everywhere instead of being able to explore. I was very happy with how this tour went though, the guide was quite knowledgable and provided all of the information on the bus as we went to each stop, then set us free upon arrival and just told us when to be back by. This was perfect, having the free time was important to me and made me feel less like a tourist being herded around. The time at each stop was just enough to enjoy it and see the important parts. I would definitely book through Sightseeing Tours London again.

We picked up the tour bus in Trafalgar Square. My teens and I sat in the back, eating a to-go lunch we picked up in the Square before we got on the bus. The bus was comfortable, and the drive beautiful. When we arrived at Stonehenge, we had ample time to view Stonehenge along with the included audio guide (which was surprisingly entertaining). Afterwards, we perused the gift shop and then got an ice cream while we waited for the bus to be ready. Our only regret was that we did not have enough time to try and pet the sheep that were in a nearby field. ;-) The bus ride back, was again comfortable, and we were dropped back at Trafalgar Square. A wonderful day that my family will never forget.

Ideal way to cover large swaths of history and place. We visited Stonehenge, Bath and Windsor Castle in one long, fascinating day. Carol was an outstanding tour guide - quite knowledgeable in the history and folk lore that added such richness to our trip. The coach was comfortable and on time and I thought the day represented good value. On-line registration was easy and straight forward and the confirmation call once I was in country was pleasant and efficient.

We were picked up early in the morning from a hotel by a courtesy bus and made our way to the main station where we all got on our individual tour. Our tour guide could speak japanese fluently which was very interesting as she was speaking in 2 languages. We got to windsor castle first, skipped through the long queues and then made it through to bath and then finally stonehenge. It was a care free trip where everything was taken care for us and it would be an ideal way to see all 3 locations!

The Stonehenge experience was AMAZING!!!
The driver gave us amazing commentary during the journey there as well as on the journey back. He even took us to Woodhenge, a place I have always wanted to see but until now, was unable to. SOOOO much worth the £29!!! AMAZING!!!!
The weather was perfect and it was just an amazing day!

I phoned in to the office to confirm my pickup point and time the day before my scheduled tour (as instructed), and was told to be at Trafalgar Square at 12:15pm. Due to severe traffic delays, I was going to arrive very close to the departure time, therefore a rang the office to bring this to their attention and to find out if they would be willing to wait a minute or two as I was only 5 minutes away. I was essentially told that no accommodation could be made and that I had 5 minutes to make it to the pick up point. After arriving at the designated point on time, I phoned the office only to be told that my collection point had been changed without my knowledge. When asked why I was not called and told of the change, I was told that they do not have my phone number however they left a message with the 'Original Tour Company' at whose offices the bus was to collect me. I was instructed to make my way to the next pickup point as quickly as possible and they will have the bus wait for me there. After rushing to the next point, we (myself and the other individuals waiting at the hotel) waited 45 minutes for the bus to arrive, and the only reason we knew why the bus was delayed was due to my previous communication with the office. No effort was made by the tour company to call the hotel and have the concierge advise those waiting outside in the rain of the delay. I found this tour to be poorly organised, and the lack of communication appalling. The company had my phone number from my initial booking (as I could not process the payment without entering a phone number) and from the day before when a member of their team had to call me back at home. The lack of effort in communicating to other tourists also showed the poor level of customer service. I definitely would not recommend this tour to any of my friends.

Our tour guide is Mark. He is very good in Japanese. Provide alot information in English & Japanese. We choose to meet up at Victoria Coach Station. Location easy to find.
Review by Babetta Valcin7 years ago
The only thing we don't understand is why we felt obliged to tip when the driver was basically doing his job - namely to get us to our destination safely and back. Don't they get paid a decent wage?
