    Great day trip from London!
    We had a great day trip to Bath and Stonehenge. I personally enjoyed the commentary, personality, and professionalism of our tour guide, Derrick, and our driver, Lamar, got us around safe and sound. Perfect way to see 2 great UNESCO World Heritage Sites in one day.

    Great value, great guide, good fun!
    Great trip definitely worth it if you are time-poor but still want to see the sites of Paris! And relatively well priced when you take into consideration how much the Eurostar tickets would normally cost you as well! Anna our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable and made the trip seamless for everyone! 10/10

    Great day out at Harry Potter.
    Recently visited HP with my son and we loved it. It was amazing walking around and seeing all the props etc from the films. Food is expensive but it was nice to eat. The butter beer is very sweet but it's a must if you are a fan. Plenty of merchandise but they aren't cheap. But the tour is fantastic. I must have taken about 200 pictures and we would probably revisit in the future.

    Stonehenge and Windsor, all in one!
    Steve and Christian were outstanding tour guides. They gave us the do’s and don’t of each stop. Kept us comfortable through the day, and made great conversational on the way. It’s an incredibly long day and you will be tired at the end, but it’s worth the adventure. Just make sure to pack a heavy snack or lunch or plan to buy some thing at Windsor castle or you may be hungry before dinner at 5 PM if that’s what your Tour will do.

    Worthy!!
    Had a fantastic time with my adult kids who grew up with Harry Potter. Just a tip: thoroughly read the voucher to find the precise location of the bus at Victoria Cross Station—it's a large place! Enjoy your visit.

    Anna is Amazing.
    Anna was the best tour guide possible that I’ve ever had. Paris was gorgeous & the lunch in the Eiffel Tower was superb. She was very informative and extremely personable. Continued to make sure we were safe and knew exactly where to go. Would come back and go on another tour with her many times again.

    Couldn't have asked for more
    The tour was absolutely amazing led by our tour guide, Lisa's guidance. Carlos, our bus driver, was also as friendly as it gets. Recommend it completely as their is enough time to explore all 3 places.

    Great long day tour!
    The tour guide Steve was extremely talkative and knowledgeable. He definitely will teach you about everything you see and visit during the tour. The whole tour is enjoyable and the drive between sites is very well organized. I’ll definitely will recommend it for small or big groups!

    Pretty awesome
    The trip was pretty awesome, quite a long day, there’s so much to see. Our guide, Andrew was awesome, knowledgeable Scottish man with a sense of humor. Bath was very busy due to the Christmas markets, which made it impossible to get into the Roman bath without a reservation. Overall I recommend this tour which is helpful yo get a little taste of English culture. Shakespeare town I think was my favorite experience as it is actually interactive and not just something to look at.

This tour started off on the wrong foot. We arrived half an hour before the stated boarding time of 8:15, and saw no employees to check in with. The electronic board said boarding would begin at 8:30, so we went to get a coffee and come back. When we came back at 8:12, the bus was fully boarded and we were spoken to rudely for holding up the tour, though we had searched for someone to check in with for 20 minutes previously. My partner and I didn’t get to sit together on the bus. In each location we felt extremely rushed, and the bus ride was not smooth. We had a few lurches due to hard braking and missed at least 5 of the less than 60 minutes in each town while the driver attempted to park. The lunch location was changed without warning and the food was not ready when we arrived, leading us to miss a lot of time in that town waiting for a lackluster meal. The tour guide had a lot of facts that were not very relevant, including a focus on a brush store and a speech about English strawberries. This was the furthest thing from a relaxing day in small villages, we felt rushed and stressed the entire day and felt that they allocated too much time to lesser locations and too little in larger towns. Having done a Cotswolds tour before, we would recommend seeking out a small group tour to maximize your time and money.

Bus ride is brutal and cramped. Worse than any coach ticket you could find on a budget airline. You don't pay to see the bus but you spend minimum 5 hours on it but with traffic over 6 hours on this bus is possible. The village was not impressive enough to justify the pain of the long bus ride. Tour staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

I just got done with this tour today, and I couldn't wait to write a review. We had Carol as our guide and Steve as our driver. Both were fantastic! Carol had so much knowledge not just about the places we visited, but also about areas we passed while driving. She was knowledgeable about everything from English history to present day local economics. I could not have asked for a better guide. Likewise, Steve got us everywhere on the itinerary safely and on schedule. He also had a lot of information if you take the time to chat with him.

The locations that you visit are quintessential "England" and are exactly what an American thinks of when picturing the English countryside. You're given plenty of time in each town to walk around on your own, shop or have afternoon tea. We had our lunch at The Cotswold Arms, and it was terrific. Everything was ready as soon as we arrived. We also had afternoon tea at Lucy's in Stow-on-the-Wold. The tea isn't included in the tour, but you have plenty of time for it, and it is very reasonably priced and delicious!

Overall, I highly recommend this tour, and hopefully, you'll be lucky and get Carol and Steve. They make a great team!

Nice day in the London countryside. Each town was very different from the last. Very good lunch with fast service to enable us to walk around the town. Driver John was very friendly. James was knowledgeable and kept us on time. We had a second driver who was very professional and did a great job getting our bus out of tight spaces.

Nice variety of villages and nice amount of time in each place. Also our guide Zozo and driver Eddie did a great job maneuvering traffic and reprioritizing timing because of those delays. The weakest part was lunch which was in a beautiful location but the food was only adequate. However, that was not unexpected and did not detract from the overall wonderful excursion.

Lunch in Cotswold was a very different kind of experience than Stonehenge and Bath which I also did with Premium Tours. All three were excellent by the way. Our tour guide Nicholas and driver Ricardo for Cotswold were most courteous and professional while being personable. Ricardo’s driving was impeccable and while Ricardo kept his eyes and ears on the road (like he should) Nicholas entertained us with loads of backstories and funny things as well as making sure all sheep were accounted for before we take off for the next destination. I highly recommend Nicholas and Ricardo as well as Premium Tours hands down.

Cotswolds is beautiful, and our tour guide Nicholas Langdon was a wonderful help. He speaks clearly and eloquently, while making sure everyone knows what they need to know but adds enough humor and knowledge to make the event a true pleasure. Our bus driver, who I believe is Ricardo, is a great driver and also makes sure all are well served.

Great day out of London! Frank and Ricky went over and beyond to make us all feel relaxed and enjoy the day. The tour was well organised with enough time in every village and very well balanced between guided time and time on our own. Frank was a delight to listen to and the way he delivered all his knowledge was just on point! Ricky even lent us his power bank to charge our phones so we didn't miss out on the photos opportunities. Highly recommend, well worth the money!

Had a great time on this tour. Our guide Nicholas was very knowledgeable and entertaining and our driver Jo was excellent. Lunch was delicious and very satisfying. Only complaint was that it felt a little rushed at the stops. I would have preferred 3 longer stops than the 4 we did, but I’m glad we saw all the beautiful places and would definitely recommend this tour.

Cody was an excellent guide, and Bernard was our fabulous driver. We enjoyed the different experiences and seeing the different towns. Cody was knowledgeable about the different locations and provided us with options and information at each location. If I could give Cody and Bernard five stars, I would - the four start rating is just because the bus seats were closely located to one another and somewhat uncomfortable.
