Leave your central London hotel for your cruise departure at Southampton Port, stopping to visit Stonehenge on the way! The prehistoric stone circle, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, sits roughly half-way between London and Southampton, making it an ideal stop before your cruise. Explore this intriguing monument at leisure, pondering its many mysteries before arriving at Southampton Port.

Leave your central London hotel by luxury coach and relax on the journey west, passing through London’s busy urban metropolis and into the peaceful Wiltshire countryside. While traveling, your tour manager will give you some insights into Wiltshire’s most intriguing relic – Stonehenge – and explain a few of the theories about the building of this Megalithic stone circle.

After traveling for roughly 1.5 hours, arrive at Stonehenge and spend time exploring this incredible site independently. While strolling around this UNESCO World Heritage Site, ponder the tales your tour manager told you earlier, and make up your own mind about how and why it came to stand. Was it built as an astrological observatory, or was it perhaps intended as a sacred burial place? How did the gigantic Sarsen stones get to the site when no machinery existed to transport them?

At the pre-arranged time, meet your tour manager back on the coach and then relax on the journey to Southampton on England’s coast. Your guide will drop you off right outside Southampton cruise terminal in time for your cruise.

We were not planning on going to Stonehenge on this trip but after we saw the prices of transportation from London Hotel to Southampton cruise port was so high, I found this sightseeing excursion that ended at the Southampton cruise port ! It was the best way to travel with a bonus, we saw Stonehenge! I would recommend this tour! Happy we go to see Stonehenge! The driver Steven and tour guide Rachel were so friendly and fun!🤩

Finally, after many years of waiting, we got to check Stonehenge off the bucket list. It was an amazing experience and the tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining.

I'm only giving a two star rating, because we did make it to our Cruise Ship! The pick up in London by the coach and representative was great. However, after the last pick up, the representative left the group, with the coach driver only. It was his first time. Almost immediately, things started to go wrong - including being diagonally stuck on a street corner in downtown London for 20 minutes; countless back streets, wrong turns to get out of London; zero communication (I mean zero) from the coach driver; no idea what to do (and no instructions to his passengers) on arrival at Stonehenge; once again - many wrong turns, u-turns and indirect routing to eventually get to Southampton to catch our cruise ship. On board our transfer bus, were two different groups of passengers, for two different cruise ships. The first group were dropped off fairly easily - though incredibly late. For those of us still on board for the second ship - we were frantic, as boarding must be completed by 3pm. At 3.05pm we finally left the first cruise ship departure area, and headed to ours. To have the driver go straight past it! One of our fellow passengers, had to take control, and explain to the driver that he had just driven straight past our drop off point; and that once again, we had to do a u-turn to get to our destination. Only giving this two stars because: we did get picked up, we did go to Stonehenge, and we did get to our ship - as outlined in the description. BUT - the company running this should provide a lot more assistance to their first time drivers. We could not believe our luck that the cruise line still let us check in, so late, despite assurances from the transfer company that we would be there at least 30 minutes prior to cut off time. Instead it was 20 minutes past cut off time. Very stressful.
