The only thing that was not good was the weather, but that is to be expected in January. Darren, our tour guide was also our driver. He picked us up on time, on the way to our destinations he told us everything we needed to know about Stonehenge, Bath, London, places we drove through. He was very informative and was easy to listen to and was happy to answer any of our questions. We had enough time to explore on our own, and he gave us suggestions on what to see and do. The locations that we visited were really beautiful. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience.

I recommend to everyone Great trip Nice everything organized. Priced ok too. Our guide Armando was great. He took care of the participants of the trip. He had a lot of knowledge and was able to help and answer every question efficiently. He tried to make everyone feel good and took care of a guide and a souvenir map for everyone in his own language I recommend is worth K.

London is the best place for us now after seeing the Windsor Castle and St George’s Chapel. I was literally crying when we saw the tomb of Queen Elizabeth. Oxford is a very preppy city. Very nice. And 5 stars to Mel our tour guide. Who did not guide us after all.

The tour is fantastic and the tour guide is really professional with a lot of expertise. The only weakness is the coach that the seats are really narrow but is ok to seat.

Anna was a great tour guide sharing little stories along the whole trip
