    Our party thoroughly enjoyed the tour on both bus and boat.
    The river cruise was probably better as there was live commentary which was clearly audible and managed to keep everyone’s concentration, whereas the bus commentary was thru recording on headphones, and was rather difficult to hear with all the background noise unfortunately.
    However, overall a most enjoyable experience- London really is a fantastic city to visit.

    Good amount of time at both places. Baths are definetly worth it. Clive was such an engaging and wonderful guide! This is a perfect day trip away from London.

    We enjoyed not having to find tickets or transportation to the Warner Bros. Studio. Evan Evans transports you there, gives you your ticket and away you go. We had 4 hours (plenty of time for our family of 4) to explore and eat dinner. Then we had a nice ride back to London.

    We had an excellent guide and a great experience! Would have given 5 stars, but was disappointed that we only saw part of the changing of the guard.

    I took this tour recently with my husband and two teenagers. I would highly recommend. Our guide, Peter, and driver Jermaine (dubbed 'The Peter and Jermaine Show') were excellent - fun and entertaining, full of information and history, and very accommodating. My older one said they were the best guides we'd ever had! Peter actually took the time at the end of the tour to make sure each group understood how they would find transport back to their hotels from the dropoff point, and recommended other things to see and do during the rest of our time in England, which I thought was a nice touch.

    Communication from Premium Tours was good. Note that there is a request to re-confirm 48 hours prior to the tour (we did it 24 hrs and it was no problem). At that time Premium told us what gate to go to at Victoria Coach station, which was very helpful as the station is a very busy place.

    The tour itself covers a lot of ground, but if you haven't seen these sites before, you will get a great intro. I feel that the expectations on the tour itinerary (roughly 1.5 hours at each location) are set very well in the online description, and also by the guide at the start of the tour. The only deviation I noted is we did not drive by the Royal Crescent in Bath, but we had time to walk up there and see it ourselves, which was more interesting anyways. I would highly recommend purchasing any optional entry tickets for the sites (unless you've seen them before), as ticket lines are long and entering as a tour group makes things easy. Note however, that there is not much time built in for eating. We grabbed something quick in Windsor and again some take-away in Bath (based on recommendations from the guide). That worked out well, as it allowed us to get back to London a little sooner than the similar tour with the pub lunch.

    There are a lot of day tour companies in London to sort through, some of which are 'middle agents'. Purchasing from Premium Tours appears to be a direct line - their busses were branded with the company name. I was impressed with how they operated, and highly recommend.

    This was incredible. It is done extremely well. There are lots of things to look at ,read about and try out.
    You wait in a room prior to going into the grand Hall, there is a bit of backstory talking which younger children aren't interested in. But after that it was v good.

    Prior to coming I paid for the audio tour guide packs for our family. Unless you are fascinated about the details of making a movie etc then you don't need this. My children really like Harry Potter but weren't at all interested in their audio tour and gave up quite quickly. There were others, mostly young adults who were using theirs.

    For a family day out you don't need them.

    The staff were helpful and polite.
    The shop is quite overwhelming at the end, so be warned those with children, it is a large area and full of items they will 'need'. The queue in the shop to pay took a long time but it was v busy.

    The buses to and from Watford Junction worked extremely well and were on time, no waiting and the driver polite.

    This was a great trip overall.

    Very nice trip to Stonehenge !
    Great driver / tour guide (Jim).
    Very friendly and knowledgeable.
    Bus was a bit cramped, seats are tight for tall people. There happened to be traffic that day so the trip was very long. Other than that it was all good.

    Busy tour with passionate guide Richard who took us through a whirlwind trip through a slice of English tourist staples. Air conditioning could possibly be looked at for summer weather as it was rather warm but small negative. Overall enjoyable day trip handled well by all at Evan Evans.

    The tour itself was great. But the bus station needs to come up with a better idea. They had many different tours going from the same gate, which caused confusion and chaos.

    Tour included many great places to see but because of the compressed nature of the tour, there wasn't nearly enough time to explore and enjoy each one as much as I would've liked. Would I still recommend this tour? Absolutely! Definitely take it as your first tour in the city. It's a good way to orient yourself with the biggest landmarks and set up later excursions.
