What better way to see the highlights of London than from onboard a vintage open top double Decker bus? Your tour includes a live guide to bring the history of London to life, escort you on your scenic cruise on the River Thames and take you to the perfect spot to watch the Changing of the Guard. Then, in the afternoon, we join an independent coach tour to Stonehenge that includes a fast track ticket
Have your cameras at the ready as we stop for photos at Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece, St. Paul’s Cathedral where Admirals Nelson and Wellington lie buried and where Princess Diana was married. Then join us at the Tower of London that was built nearly a thousand years ago, during the reign of William the Conqueror, and is now home to the Crown Jewels protected by the famous Beefeaters. The imposing former palace was once used as a fortress and a prison and your guide will take you to see Traitors Gate where prisoners entered the Tower for the last time!
Next we take a leisurely cruise on the River Thames that passes Shakespeare’s Globe, Cleopatra’s Needle and London Bridge before we arrive at Westminster pier, rejoin the bus and head for Buckingham Palace. Here we make our way to the perfect spot to watch the world famous Changing of the Guard ceremony as the soldiers, dressed in their fabulous tunics and busbies march to military music.
Following an hours free time for lunch in Victoria, we board our luxury air-conditioned coach and head for the most famous prehistoric monument in the world. Stonehenge, a world heritage site, stands alone in the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years and it has been home to pagan religion and spiritual worship, not to be mention public debate ever since. What was this vast collection of stones intended for? Was it observatory of the moon, a temple to the sun, or an elaborate cemetery? Who were the people who carried and carved these 40 ton rocks? Come and unlock the secrets for yourself and marvel at this remarkable and mysterious feat of ancient engineering and design. Entrance to the site with audio guide is included.
I just wanted to let you know that my family had our private Stonehenge tour with Kieffe today. He was absolutely the best tour guide we have ever had. He was very personable and extremely knowledgeable. We so enjoyed today. Thank you!
I want to offer these comments after our tour to Stonehenge, Oxford, andWindsor arranged by Stonehenge Guided Tours; the tour to include a suggestedearly visit to Stonehenge was most enjoyable from of course a historical and architectural perspective as well as beauty of the countryside in that area of England. Ourtour was enhanced and made complete by our guide Dave who was knowledgeable,engaging, full of helpful suggestions, patient ( my many questions) while demonstrating complete professionalism. When we return we will make it a pointto try to retain his services. I strongly suggest that Stonehenge Guided Tours make Dave and his repertoire of services available to your future clients. Thanks again for a great tour!
