The perfect way to transfer from London to Southampton (cruise). Trip was easy and comfortable. There’s not a lot to do in Stonehenge, so making it part of a trip to get to your cruise was extremely convenient and the best way to check Stonehenge off your bucket list.

Andrew was a joy to have as our tour guide. Not only is he knowledgeable but he can convey a multitude of historic tidbits that are so interesting. I hope I can take a tour with him again.

Great pick up right at our hotel. Guide had lots of great information and was friendly and helpful. Stonehenge is interesting and a great stop on the way to the cruise port.

Fun outing on the way to our cruise ship. Pick up was convenient and the driver and guide were awesome.

Professional driver with spacious vehicle for 4 of us and our luggage!
