      Thanks David!
      We had an amazing tour with Evans & Evans/Driver: David Garcia while in London on business. Traveling for business you tend to be stuck in a conference room most of the time, so my client and I decided to spend sometime out of London and booked a day tour with Evans and Evans. Planning went well and they communicated often, and clearly up until the day of our trip. We received the name of the driver and his number prior to the day of which I appreiciated. The day of, David ran a few minutes late due to heavy traffic but as coincidence would have it, we were running late as well - so we were synced up. We had a very pleasant ride out to Bath (we almost forgot about the two hour journey as we chatted away - it seemed to go quick!). We felt safe with David, and he prepared us for the day. We adjusted our itnerary a little (we stopped by the Salsbury Cathedral for a quick gander at the Magna Carta). A very special thank you to David for convincing me that Stonehenge was worth the trip, and his flexibility was very much appreciated for the day. On my next trip to London, will definitely be looking for his services again to explore other locations outside of the city. Thanks for taking great care for my client and I while visiting.

      Pleasant day in England!
      It was a very nice day trip. Our tour guide Kevin Sorin was very nice and thought us so many things regarding all places we stop. He is very knowledgeable! For those tourists that spoke Japanese, he was the guy! Tours was conducted in English and Japanese!

      Kevin Sorin was amazing and very knowledgeable about the history of United Kingdom. I’m looking forward to learning more about it with future trips and through my readings.

      Missed the bus.
      I am sure it is a great trip, but cannot rate it because we did not go. In order to submit this review, I will give it 3 stars so as not to tip the scales badly for Viator. Tip for all - leave plenty of extra time to find the bus address, maybe take a cab, as a driver would probably have had the savvy to get us to the right spot. We got there in good time via the Tube, but could not find the address given, and were redirected by station employees a couple times, spending our precious time looking for the bus stop. We missed the bus, and the Viator agreement does not allow for refunds on the day of travel. A lost and costly opportunity, and a stressful moment during our vacation.

      An amazing tour!
      An epic time visiting Stonehenge and Windsor with this tour company. We were the only group in the inner circle upon arrival making it an extra special day. The bus was clean and comfy and the tour guide Simon was informative and friendly, as was John the driver. One of the best tours I have been on.

      Great experience and would highly recommend it, especially if Kevin is your guide.
      Our tour guide Kevin was very entertaining , knowledgeable& accommodating to everyone! I highly recommend this tour if you would like to enhance your stay in England. This tour allows you to see a lot in a short amount of time, with tours at each location. Our coach bus had usb ports to charge our phones and wifi. Kevin also allowed us to leave some our non valuable personal effects on the bus which is helpful with the inclement weather during the Winter months(Feb 25). I also recommend bringing your umbrella & rain appropriate gear. We grabbed sandwiches and snacks when we found time at the end of our Windsor Castle tour at a little bakery on the left hand side of the stairs that lead to the main road and other eateries. Will be recommending this tour to friends!

      Kevin = 5 Star Fun!
      Kevin was great - 5 stars! In spite of England’s best attempts to spoil our day with winter rain & wind, Kevin was bright, cheerful, informative, and above all, lighthearted and funny throughout. Throughout the day, Kevin shared endless stories, anecdotes, and facts about our destinations, along with the small towns, roads & the countryside as we went between each. Obviously it’s a lot to cover in terms of time & distance, but what a great way to check off a few bucket list items if you have the time to do so!

      Amazing day tour experience
      Even though the weather wasn’t that great Kevin was amazing and made it fun and interesting. He was witty and found a balance switching between English and Japanese informing the group on the history of the places we visited. Quite talented. Would highly recommend a tour with Kevin you won’t be disappointed.
