We experience a wonderful all day trip to Stonehenge, Salisbury and Bath which included many historical buildings, country scenery and a wonderful experienced driver, Anthony Maraganos. He prepped us during our trip on what we were going to see so that when we got there we knew what we were seeing without spending a lot of time with explanations.

We had a wonderful day in the Cotswolds. From our very vague "we want to see grand houses" request, Paul delivered a well rounded tour of the area. Blenheim Palace was amazing. We went to several charming towns and an idyllic restaurant for lunch. Paul guided our trip with thoughtfulness, humor, vast knowledge and excellent driving :o)

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
