Andy Jackson was our tour guide and what a truly great historian he is! He puts history into context with other concurrent events and adds really quirky and interesting facts that are fascinating. He's a great storyteller. The tour was comfortable (if a bit long), and the sites were exciting.

The weather across all destinations at this time of year was fantastic. Sunny skies, cool breezes and vibrant nightlife. An amazing and worthwhile visit to the oldest English castle. The Queens weekend home is surrounded by beautiful sights and sounds. To view the best of the castle at least a half day trip is recommended. Apart from the experience of the Castle, take a stroll along the 4km long walk path and also enjoy some sunshine with the swans at River Thames. Stonehenge is an archeological wonder. Great picture moments with guided commentary across the circular route of the stones. If you love history and want to see a world wonder, you have to see Stonehenge. Other than Stonehenge, therr are other views, so prepare a longer trip if you would like to see these. Oxford waking tour is an interesting experience into the history and architecture that is very picturesque. The city is vibrant and if you have time an overnight stay would be recommended. Patty from the tour company was an excellent guide who is well versed in the history and stories of these locations. She has great insight on the best on site views

Ronald our tour guide and Nadia our driver did an outstanding job on this tour. Ronald provided tons of facts (and jokes) to keep our group engaged and entertained at each site and during the bus ride. We had the perfect amount of time at Windsor, Stonehenge and Oxford. Highly recommend!

THis tour included THREE great stops: Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, AND Oxford! All were great! The village of Winsor has many small shops and yummy restaurants for breakfast or cream tea. We had plenty of time to explore Stonehenge and took our time walking around the stones. Oxford was fun. We had AMAZING pizza at The White Rabbit - highly suggest that place for superb pizzas!

Our tour guide Debra was amazing. She was highly informative, funny and well organized. The trip itself was a lot to do in one day and in hind-sight having a little more time at the sights would have been good. The bus driver was great as well. He made the trip comfortable and he was always where he needed to be when he needed to be there. The only wish here is that the bus seats would be a little more spacious. A little cramped from our perspective.

We were late at Victoria Coach Station for the trip at 8 a.m. on 9 December 2018. When we arrived at the Victoria Coach Station, the coach had already left. Thankfully, we met a beautiful bespectacled young lady called Nadine from Evans and Evans (if I got her name correct) who went out of her way to help my family to get alternative transport to Windsor Castle to meet the coach so that we could rejoin the rest and continue with the trip. Yes, we managed to arrive in time to meet the guide, Godfrey. Honestly, without Nadine who went out of her way to help us, we would have had missed the trip. Nadine was not only helpful, she did with a warm smile and walked with us to the road and waited with us in the rain for the transport from Addison Lee. Thank you Nadine, for your patience and very kind act. Kudos to you! We deeply appreciate and you made our day!

Tour guide, Kevin, and driver, Steve, were great. Kevin very knowledgeable about English history. Kept us amused and informed during the intervals between tour stops. Tour was a little hurried but that would be expected trying to do this much in 11 hours. Suggest maybe one less activity?

Our guide Andy Jackson did a great job. With traffic and travel, there is not a lot of time for each location, but Andy and Mick were very efficient and we got about 90 minutes at each site, which is probably all you could hope for on a single day trip. Andy is very knowledgeable.

Super intelligent tour guide who was friendly and very sweet. The tour was a bit fast-paced, but necessary to see all the sights in one day. It was a good mix of walking with the tour guide and free time to explore on your own.

This Evan Evans tour was spectacular, beginning to end. En route, our tour guide pointed out historical landmarks and the homes of famous Brits in literature and theater. She shared insights throughout--in English and Japanese, to the delight of the Japanese visitors on board. I could listen to her speak all day. Her cadence, her wit and her brilliance reminded me of a great professor. I wish I could remember her name but I doubt that the company has a lot of guides who speak Japanese. We arrived at Windsor Castle before the gate opened. Our tour guide explained it was by design. We could see why: By the time we were admitted, there were hundreds in line behind us. The castle itself was something out of a fairy tale! You don't want to go to London without experiencing its majesty. Once admitted, and equipped with beautiful keepsake wristbands and audio tour gear, we were able to wander at our leisure. I probably spent far too much time in St. George's. It was an absolute thrill to walk down the aisle where, a few weeks later, Meghan Markle would become a royal. My only wish is that we could have explored the grounds longer. There was SO much history in that place and so much to see! Our next stop was Stonehenge, which I understand, has been redeveloped to create a more pleasant tourist experience. Like many, I was expecting some mystical experience. Nope. Maybe it was because it was a chilly, misty day it just looked like rocks. I took a few photos and scurried back to the tourist center. It was enough that I had scratched off something else from my bucket list. Our guide shared insights en route to Oxford and in town that I had not heard before. Her approach was more academic, and I enjoyed that. I only had two days of sightseeing before beginning a week of workshops near Oxford, and Evan Evans graciously allowed me to bring my luggage just a carry-on and end my tour in Oxford instead of going all the way back to London. That saved time and money, and was the cherry on top of an absolutely glorious day. Thank you, Evan Evans!

A unique insight into History and the Royal Family. Windsor is blend of old and new, the history of the Royal family and the Castle, coupled with the new since they still use it and were in residence while we were there touring the castle. Stonehenge is close to 5000 years old and the tour provides a peak into history and the archaeologists views on prehistoric man and how the stones were arranged and the meaning behind the sight. Oxford, as a town has such unique architecture, showing the years as the colleges have grown and evolved in the last 1,000 years...Tour guide Patricia provided great insights for all 3 sights...be prepared for long bus rides and a 10 hour day.

We really enjoyed this day trip. We did not feel rushed as this is a highlights tour and had adaquate time to view the highlights of each place. Overall we had a great time and were very impressed. If you only have one day to visit this is a great trip to see a lot in a short amount of time.

This is a sperfect one day tour to see the most famous sights around London. We had a great bus driver and a guide, Deborah who was really nice and flexible. Though we had a terrible weather they managed to show us everything in. We also had our 12 year-old son with us, who doesn't speak English well and he also enjoyed the tour. I can suggest the company ant the tour for those who wants to see more around London in a short time and want to travel in comfort.
