We were 2 friends who pre-booked the Simply Stonehenge tour from golden tours for 26 pounds each and had a wonderful experience. The tour includes entry ticket to Stonehenge and the audio guide. The tour also provides pick up services from several hotels. Sadly, we were late, and missed our stop, so we reached directly at their visitor center. They took care of this and the bus arrived just after a few minutes of wait.
The bus seats were very comfortable and our driver and guide Steve provided all info we required. The way to Stonehenge is beautiful in Fall and you could see all shades of green and brown. We had around 1 hour with us to take in the beauty and serenity of Stonehenge and that was absolutely sufficient. They dropped us back at Kensington. Steve also gave directions for the nearest tube station and also handled all the other queries of passengers. Would definitely recommend it.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about your ‘wonderful’ experience on Golden Tour’s “Stonehenge” tour including entry ticket with Stonehenge Audio guide.

Thank you for choosing Golden Tours and deciding to pre-book with us.

We do offer all our customers a complimentary Hotel “pick-up” service however for some travellers, depending the hotel they are in, find it easier and more convenient to make their own way directly to our departure “visitor-Centre” which is centrally located by London’s Victoria Station.

We appreciate and glad that both you and your friend found your driver/guide, Steve, to be pleasant and informative.

Thank you for choosing Golden Tours.

During our 4 days in London, my 5 travel mates and I wanted to see as much of the City as possible. The Hop On Hop Off tour was an excellent stress-free way to see everything. The audio tour provided excellent information about London's landmarks, and we especially liked the opportunities to hop on/hop off at the places we wanted to further explore. I suggest everyone use the Hop On Hop Off tours on their first visit to London!

My husband and I had limited time in London and thought this bus tour would be a good way to see the major attractions quickly. As far as price, it seemed in line with what other tours were charging and we happened to get this brochure from our hotel. We paid for the tour and hopped on the first bus around 9 AM. We rode for maybe 5-6 blocks and got off to walk around Westminster. We got back on about 30 mins later and went another few blocks and got off. That was probably around 10 AM. We followed the schedule and waited at the next stop for the bus. The brochure says they come every 30 mins but I can assure you, that is not the case. We waited for about 50 mins and then the bus drove right by the stop not pulling over to pick us up. A rep from the company was walking around with a cell phone and asked if we had just gotten to the stop. When we explained that we'd been waiting for almost an hour, he directed us to walk to the next stop (in the rain, I might add) and they would pick us up there. We walked to the next stop and waited another 40 mins before decided to take the tube to our next destination. For the entire rest of the day, we NEVER saw another Golden Tours bus, even though we frequently stopped to wait at their designated pickup locations. We probably wasted close to 3 hours of our day waiting on busses that never showed up. We were extremely disappointed with the services rendered and would not recommend this company to our worst enemy. We essentially paid $75 (US) to go less than a mile, when we could have taken the tube for what we had already paid for on a daily pass. It was absolutely the worst part of our trip to the UK.

Fantastic guide Pete with a great driver as well. Greatly enjoyed the stress free day to see some of the grandness of these 3 places.. It's a rushed day due to distance from London but very easy to do all 3 in one day on the trip and see some of what each has to offer... It would seem easier for the group to me if they made everyone but tickets to events... Can't imagine why you would want to go to the places and not but tickets into events to begin with!!

Thank you for taking the time for sharing your ‘stress-free’ experience on Golden Tour’s day-tour of “Stonehenge, Bath and Queens Palace”.

Your tour guide Pete, whom you mention, is one of our most valued and knowledgeable members of our team. Glad to hear, like many other people who have had the opportunity of having Pete as their guide, you also found him to be ‘fantastic.

Discerning travellers appreciate that sightseeing is always more meaningful when accompanied by someone who knows and understands the history to be able to share at the right time and place. Glad you also noticed how good the driver was.

We are humbled that you understand covering three great locations with the distances involved from London in a single day is always time challenging and hence may have found this trip quite rushed however, with the stories from the guide to having tickets ready, we always aim to make your day as enjoyable as we can. Thank you for choosing Golden Tours.

A very belated review, we were in London April 2012 and found the interconnecting bus service invaluable....and cheap. Heading back to London in June 2014 and a ticket to this service will be the first thing we buy
