    The tour was excellent. Robert was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and clearly laid out the plan for the day. Rafael was a great driver. I would highly recommend this tour.

    It was a really cool trip. On the way, our guide talked about the history of England and its kings/queens. Very interesting. The staff was corteous. I recommend this trip.

    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.

    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.

    We loved this day trip! Our tour guide, Nicholas, was knowledgeable and charming. We had just the right amount of time in each place, and it was the perfect opportunity to explore areas outside of London. Transportation was comfortable and efficient. I would definitely do a tour like this again!

    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.

    We booked this tour specifically because we wanted the inner circle access to Stonehenge and it did not disappoint. Our tour guide, Leon, was very informative, entertaining, and funny. It was obvious that he is truly passionate about the history of Stonehenge. The guide at Stonehenge was named Chris and he told many fascinating stories about the stones and was able to answer essentially any question you could think to ask. Getting time to be in the inner circle and really appreciate the monument without crowds was worth every penny.

    The Roman Baths were also great and there was even a little time to grab a pint at a pub in Bath before continuing on. Lacock was fun as well.

    Our guide, Karen, and our driver Nono (not sure of the spelling of his name, I'm sorry!) did a fantastic job. They were so accommodating and compassionate and the trip was really fun. We did Oxford, Bampton (village), and Highclere Castle. Karen was so witty and charming and genuinely seemed to love checking in with us and the other passengers. Nono was also very witty and fun. All in all, a great trip that I would heartily recommend.

    This guided tour made the whole process very easy, starting with the online booking, then meeting Grace at the train station, who took us via train and bus to the Wizarding World and had lots of info to share, and our private, personalized tour with Kevin M., who gave us a the behind the scenes tour of the movie magic. Observing the other visitors, we felt really fortunate to have the guidance and insight a professional guide provided. Kevin M. had a deep knowledge of the movies and production details, and found details of interest for our tween boy and teen girl. The City Wonders tour guide was able to enter the sets to point details out to us, and other visitors would try to listen in to the presentations.

    Note that once you arrive at the Wizarding World, the tour takes about 3 hours, with a cafe break in the middle. Because this is focused on the making of the movies, it is still fresh and different if you have been to the Universal HP experiences. The gift shop is also tremendous.
