Absolutely a Great Guide. Hugh was an absolute pleasure to be with, and knows his British history very well. My girlfriend Gillian took his one day London trip, and it was fantastic. Thanks.

Stonehenge and Windsor are beautiful. The duration of the tour was just right and my guides Kev and Dan were really wonderful and knowledgeable. There were supposed to be 5 people in our group but the other 4 did not turn up and so it became a private tour for me! Rabbies still went ahead even though there was only one passenger! Great service indeed!:)

Full Itinerary (English)
Departing central London you travel west through Wessex, one of England’s oldest kingdoms with a history stretching back more than 1000 years. We travel towards the legendary Neolithic standing stone circle of Stonehenge. Arriving at the award winning Stonehenge visitors centre you will have the opportunity to view the hundreds of prehistoric items from the Stonehenge collection before joining the land train shuttle that will take you to the fabled site of the Stonehenge Stone Circle’s. From here we return to the River Thames at Runnymede where in 1215 King John sealed the Magna Carta and founded the modern rule of law. Runnymede has a number of important monuments including the Royal Air Force Memorial. From here it is a short drive through Windsor Great Park to the Royal town of Windsor, home to one of the Her Majesty the Queen’s most impressive residences. During your stop here you will have time to visit the Castle and State Apartments. On certain days you may see the changing of the guard ceremony. Alternatively you can follow the free self-guided Windsor and Eton heritage trail or take a boat trip on the river (seasonal). From Windsor it’s just a short relaxing drive back into Central London.
