Day 2: London

Depart for your Magic of London tour, where aboard a coach, you'll drive past some of London's most famous landmarks including Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, before arriving at the Tower of London where you will be met on the middle drawbridge by a Yeoman Warder. You will be led into this world heritage site before it opens to the public and taken on a guided tour explaining the history behind this fortress of imprisonment. You will be the first group to see the Crown Jewels before enjoying some free time to explore on your own. Departing from the Tower, head to The Mall to watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony (Please note, the Changing of the Guard does not occur every day - enjoy a photo stop at Buckingham Palace when not running).

Day 3: London

Spend the day outside of London on a shared guided tour taking in the magnificent Stonehenge and Bath. Clouded in mystery, the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is an amazing feat of engineering and the most important prehistoric site in England, but beyond its archaeological significance and possible astronomical role, Stonehenge is also a place of spiritual importance. Early legends link it with Merlin and King Arthur, but over the last hundred years, the midsummer sunrise has attracted pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids. Entrance fee to Stonehenge is included. 

Afterwards, enjoy a whole afternoon to discover Bath's major sights. A walking tour will show you Pulteney Bridge and the Circus, and you will get a fascinating insight into how Bath became the world-class attraction it is today. Bath offers a unique experience with stunning architecture, great shopping and iconic attractions. You will have plenty of time to discover the Jane Austen Visitors Centre, Bath Abbey or the Roman Baths.

  • Allyson S. — June 30, 2016 — Europe

    Jessica Clements was wonderful to work with and was very responsive. Everything that was arranged went smoothly. All of the guides were so knowledgeable and really helped us get a sense of Poland's history and feel a connection with the country from which our ancestors came. This was the first time we ever had used private guides and we got so much more out of the trip than if we would have just decided to do the sights on our own. We had an amazing trip full of memories for a lifetime. Thank you!

  • Jeanne C. — June 30, 2016 — Europe

    This was our first time using a tour company. It was fantastic to have guides and drivers to take us through our ambitious itinerary. Thank you for taking care of all the arrangements.

  • John D. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    Had a great trip to Spain and Portugal. All went well. No polishing points or constructive feedback to provide. This was the third trip with Kensington in 18 months and all were wonderful.

  • Kristian L. — June 30, 2016 — Europe

    We had the best vacation ever!! Especially the tour guides and the drivers are above and beyond. We miss them already :) !!! We will definitely go with Kensington Tours again. Thank you for a great vacation.

  • Nancy H. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    This was the second tour we have taken with Kensington Tours. This was very different from our first tour but just right for this time. My husband and I traveled with my 85 year old parents.The accommodations and the pace of the travel worked very well. Our guide, Dermot, was very friendly and very understanding of our special needs as well as very knowledgeable. I have already had further communication with him. Thanks for the memorable experience.

  • Molly P. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Our family loved our week in Iceland. I am 70 and our youngest is 9. Each activity was well suited for the whole group. We changed one event and Kensington Tours immediately helped us cancel one and sign up for a new adventure. When I had questions they helped me out. Their professionalism, kindness, and attentiveness made our trip a complete success. Thank you!

  • Tammy M. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Jessica Clements was a tremendous help as my husband and I planned our pre-cruise visit to Athens and the Peloponnese. Many thanks for all your efforts. We enjoyed our tours very much. Our guides, Niki Stavrakaki and Andronikos Sakatos, were phenomenal. Our drivers, Makias and Demetrios, were very professional and delightful gentlemen. We had a great time exploring many of the ancient sites we've dreamed of seeing for years.

  • Caroline W. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Transfers were seamless and activities were great. Overall, we are very impressed with Kensington!
