    Our family enjoyed the tour. Zozo, our guide, was very knowledgeable, engaging, funny, and entertaining. Tyrone, our driver, was very capable and patient. The coach was comfortable and clean. We felt quite cared for. This tour included tickets to Stonehenge and the Roman Baths. Zozo also took us on a comprehensive walking tour of Bath (optional - people could choose to explore the city on their own for a couple of hours instead). Food is not included, but there were lots of choices and our guide gave us very helpful tips. I nearly chose a tour that included Windsor Castle, but in the end, I think there would have been too little time to explore all three sights in one day. Zozo helpfully pointed it out on the way back, so we may visit it later. This was definitely an experience to remember!

    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.

    The sites were fantastic, the tour guide was really on point. Very well informed, kept everyone moving and was kind and accommodating. I would do this tour again or recommend it to anyone traveling to the area!

    To be clear, our review of the day itself is 4/5; however, our review of our tour guide (Zozo) and quality of the tour is 5/5!!!

    Zozo was dynamic right from the beginning! He was very knowledgeable, but balanced when and what to share instead of overpowering. The chemistry he creates with his tours makes the day fabulous while knowing he is absolutely the one in control. Our family lost our camera along the way and he was very helpful in organizing another tour guide to pick it up and return it to London so we could pick it up the next morning! Thanks Zozo!

    Note: we knew the tour day was going to be long, but the travel through the Cotswolds puts you quite late into Stratford cutting that experience too short (and therefore lacklustre). Still very grateful we checked off so many iconic sights in one day!

    We had a tour cancel with another provider a day prior and rebooked with international friends last second through TripAdvisor. Not only was it more cost effective but one of the most organized tours we’ve been on. They got us to Stonehenge early allowing us to get public free pictures. The tour guide’s knowledge of Bath was amazing and kept us engaged.

    We had a wonderful day touring with Nick! He was knowledgeable, very personable and a lot of fun. We truly enjoyed our day touring outside of London. Stonehenge, Salisbury and Lacock, what a wonderful way to spend the day. We will definitely use Nick again when we come back.

    My family of four learned so much from David on our trip to Stonehenge and Windsor. Coming from the US, having a knowledgeable guide willing to drive for us was invaluable. It allowed us parents to have a stress free experience! Pickup at our hotel was a breeze, the Mercedes was the perfect size for our teenagers and us and performed beautifully in the deluge we experienced at Stonehenge during our trip. The Bespoke England Tours.com ended with some great recommendations for our next visit to the UK. We will book again with David!

    Stop! Don't look at other tour companies but Tailor tours!!!! A true 5 stars tour company that takes quality as their operating standards rather than quantity of locations! If you don't like the hop on hop off experience look no further!!! You will not be disappointed!!!

    What an amazing tour Mr Oz had with us. We did 3 locations and started the tour at 430am. The sunrise at wood henge and stonehenge is simply truly amazing. They are not just rocks as many people will say. The beauty of the landscapes, the natural beauty is a must see. Mr oz is the owner so we got to talk a lot about the how private tours ran. A lot of the tour company will just sell you many many locations, and just be hop on and hop off the bus. Mr oz let us spend time in each of the locations and told us many historical facts and interesting things about the places. Since he has a history degree, he taught us many things we didn't know as well as old English sayings.

    Stonehenge: ask for the inner circle so you get to go into the stones but need to special arrange since they will only let 30 people in. Check with them. But it is a truly exciting experience to see rock up close and not just take a pic and go.

    Bath: we lucky to head in Roman bath early. There wasn't a lot of people before 11. So go early. It is a must see. The audio guide is great and the city itself is amazingly beautiful. Wish we had a day to see the city and soak in hotspring. Next time.

    Cotswolds/Lacock: very very cute little town with cute houses. A few harry potter film locations. Very cute town.

    Overall, the quality of the trip is great. He talked and answered a lot of my 9 year old questions and kept us entertain so it was not a just a driver trip. He is a true tour guide. He even went above and beyond. He helped us pick up our tix to christ church the next day which was truly great!. Appreciate all his history, help, and knowledge. We will be back soon. And do another wonderful awesome tour with you!

    For anyone looking to book a tour. Look no further !!! Join Tailor Tours and promise you won't just get a driver. You will get a true tour guide and a friend.

    Highly recommended!

    We could not have been more impressed with our tour guide, Mehru. When she is not guiding tours, she is a regular member of the staff at the Tower of London so her knowledge is top-notch. That alone would have made this a great tour. On top of that, however, she was so wonderful with my children (ages eight and 10). She never failed to find the sweet spot in the information she delivered to keep me and both of my sons interested the entire time. She’s easily the best tour guide we have ever had, and we have been on many, many tours!

    We highly recommend this tour for children and adults. Rossa is highly knowledgeable and managed to share his knowledge and passion about archeology, history of civilisations and the British Museum! Amazing that we covered 1/5 of the museum in only 5 hours - all of us, children and adults enjoyed it greatly and learned very much! Particularly good for children to learn about civilisations, Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece but also Rome, Vikings and Roman Britain!

    This tour was perfect for us to get a glimpse of the highlights at the museum. Tons of people, but Roberta knew exactly where to go to show us the top artifacts.
    For my 12 year old, the Rosetta Stone was okay, but the mummies!! Amazing!
    Lots of people to navigate, but Roberta knew where to stand so she could tell us lots of history and explain things, while still close enough to see things.
    Tweenagers are tough crowds, but Roberta handled it like a champ! Can recommend highly!
