Beautiful day, all went...
sharon_l, Oct 2023
Beautiful day, all went according to plan on pick up from our hotel. It appeared those closer to airport and further from city center had later pick up time. Some got on at 7am and we were picked up at about 9:30am. From our airport hotel.
Awesome experience

Ben is an excellent driver- and Rachel’s history lessons were funny and informative! Very organized crew.
Great way to get to the ship
Carla_L, Sep 2023
It was hassle-free, calm, and I learned a great deal about the area and Stonehenge. Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable
Great way to see Stone Henge with transfer to cruise ship.
Dianne_C, Sep 2023
Great way to see Stone Henge enroute to Southampton before boarding cruise ship. Tony was excellent driver and Ula was a very good guide. And they got us to ship right on time!
Lisa_L, Sep 2023
International Friends were excellent. We were delayed leaving the US so arrived very close to our pick up time. Messaged the team before we left and they were in constant contact with us once we landed. Understanding and kind. Our tour guide Shannon was delightful and even got off the bus to find us as we were looking for our meeting place. Just terrific and a lovely way to start our trip. Highly recommend!
Great excursion!
Bruce_G, Sep 2023
Great service with on time pickup and trip to Stonehenge and on to ship. Highly recommend as pre-cruise excursion!
Great Pre-cruise excursion
Mary_S, Sep 2023
This was a wonderful way to get from our hotel in London to our cruise ship in Southampton. We had plenty of time to view and experience Stonehenge, as well as get to the ship in plenty of time.
Aliens and Cool Stuff

Great way to get to the cruise terminal and see Stonehenge. They were almost an hour late, and even though we made it to the terminal with time, we were rushed and didn’t get to see the museum at all. Make sure you take note of where your coach is parked, they all seem to look like the identical white Mercedes!!
Shonna_H, Sep 2023
We were picked up at our hotel by friendly staff and dropped off at our ship on time. Much nicer to do a pre-cruise tour on the way to the ship instead of just a boring taxi or shuttle ride.
Lisa_H, Sep 2023
Great experience and once in a lifetime trip to Stonehenge then on to Southampton cruise terminal. Natasha our guide and George bus driver are excellent at their jobs. Polite and knowledgeable.
Great experience, staff worked around issues splendidly
Stephanie_R, Sep 2023
The driver and guide were wonderful, knowledgeable and friendly throughout the excursion. There were traffic issues that they worked around to make sure we visited Stonehenge and got to our ship on time. The coach was roomy and air conditioned. Would definitely recommend!
Great pre-cruise excursion
Phillip_H, Sep 2023
Great option for those like me, that needed transportation to the port in Southampton and want to see Stonehenge. It was a great trip with plenty of time at Stonehenge and we arrived in plenty more of time to board the ship. The ship excursions to Stonehenge were booked up early, so this was a great option and allowed me to do another excursion on the first day of the cruise.
Stress free transport with a fun pit stop!
Suzanne_G, Sep 2023
Our driver made the trip stress free! It was also great to get to Stonehenge early to beat the crowds.
Great transfer from London to Southampton via Stonehenge!
Richard_H, Sep 2023

Stacey_D, Aug 2023
Everything went smoothly and the trip was great Stonehenge was amazing to see. The bus was on time picking us up
Great trip to Stonehenge!
Paula_M, Aug 2023
The pre-cruise trip to Stonehenge was perfect. Hotel pick-up was on-time and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The bus was comfortable and they took care of bags at the port.
Nice way to get to cruise port if you're not in a hurry
Frank_C, Aug 2023
We wanted to see Stonehenge but couldn't fit it into our schedule so this was a great way to see it. We had 2 hours and were able to take pictures and go into the exhibits which were interesting. It was a good way to make our way to our cruise port while fitting in an excursion. Our driver Callum and Rubin were great and very friendly to everyone. The only negative about this excursion is the length of time that is spent picking up passengers from other hotels. We were the second pick up and were on the bus for about 3 hours just picking up others. If you're not in a hurry to get to port and would like to squeeze in an excursion, I would recommend it but just know that you will be spending most of your time on the bus.
Dream of a lifetime!
Bernadette_L, Aug 2023
The Stones and the drive through the English countryside were memorable. Our guide was pleasant and cheerful. The pick up at the hotel was on time, even a little early and without worry. The conclusion of the tour and the drop off at the port was on-time. Truly the tour met all expectations.
It wasn't druids.
Gloria_B, Aug 2023
The tour guide Rachel was great! Knowledgeable about the history of Stonehenge and humorous side stories. Stonehenge was amazing but download the app from English Heritage before you go as the wi fi is not great. It was more crowded than I anticipated. And there were long queue lines for the shuttle busses. But there was ample time to see and listen to the audio tour on our headphones. Try the snacks in the Cafe. I highly recommend the cheese and onion pastry. It will be a highlight. A plus was having my luggage taken care of when we got to the port.
