    Lovely group size of 26 on the trip and fellow travellers were considerate and gracious that I dozed off unknowingly while traveling from places to places. Extra legroom space, panoramic window view and seat rotation were perfect for the countryside... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Where does the tour start and finish?

      On day one of this tour travellers are required to meet at The Grosvenor Hotel in London, at 7:15 am where you will commence your tour. We recommend booking The Grosvenor Hotel the night before to make sure that you do not miss the early departure time, and allow for any delayed flights.

      On the final day, your tour ends back at The Grosvenor Hotel in London, in the early evening. We recommend that you do not book your flights on the last day of your tour, to allow for any delays due to traffic or weather conditions.

    • How much time is spent travelling?

      This tour includes locations that are fairly close to each other so travelling times should not exceed more than 4 hours each day. However, these times can vary depending on traffic and weather. Please note that your tour driver is required to stop every 2 hours for bathroom breaks and photo opportunities, so there will be plenty of time to stretch your legs and grab a bite to eat!

    • Is the tour outside the stones only, or do you get to go to the center of the circle?

      The tour of Stonehenge included in this tour is through the outside of the stones only, as the tours that take you to the centre of the stones are only operated outside of public access hours
