This is a must day trip every London visitor should have. It started right in time and came back at the right time. The guide (Keisha) was awesome and the Driver (Ashley I think) was perfect. Very nice narration on and off the road. Very caring guide. Windsor was marvelous but a bit short - extra 30 minutes there would have been nice and rather cutting short 30 minutes in Stonehenge will make a lot of difference.

Our tour guide, Bruce and driver, Amrish were superb! Bruce was incredibly knowledgeable about London, as well as all three places we visited. Highly recommend! Be sure to look into how long you’re at each stop. We did our research and knew exactly what to expect, and we were not disappointed at all!

Staff are very friendly, very good experience, next time we will try the durdle door and lulworthcove ferry.. the downside was we booked for 915 tour but they said it was adjusted at 1030 and they didnt told us ahead of time so we waited for an hour 15mins..

Superb value for money. Very interesting and informative commentary. And this from seasoned boaters!

Really enjoyed the trip, great value and captain was very informative. Would recommend
