5/5
β˜… A well-planned and packed itinerary β˜… Even though the trip was full of sight-seeing, we also had some great extra activities to choose from that Maria thought of beforehand β˜… She is super friendly, attentive, and accessible to her tripmates β˜… If you are on one of her UK trips and she offers to make an English breakfast, I recommend it β˜… She was really on top of things, with knowledge about current events in the area, to make the trip smooth and better β˜… I'm hoping our travel schedules line up once more

Bristol

Day 1-2
Day 1: Arrival in Bristol Welcome to Bristol! Locals call Bristol the most creative and liberal city in the island nation, and it has lived up to its name. As a cosmopolitan metropolis, it attracts millions of visitors and students from all over the world every year and welcomes everyone. It is also home to the most Michelin-starred restaurants outside of London and the hippest trendy neighborhoods. Depending on your arrival time in Bristol, you can go directly from the airport to our hotel (check-in is 3pm) and check into your room or leave your luggage at the reception. The 4-star hotel is well located and within walking distance of the old town. Depending on when the other TripMates arrive, I may be able to show you around Bristol already. In the afternoon we will go together to the accommodation and the afternoon is meant for our free disposal.

Stonehenge

Day 2-3
Day 2: Full day excursion to Stonehenge and Salisbury Fortify yourself with coffee and a good breakfast for the day's excursion to the prehistoric monument of Stonehenge and the historic city of Salisbury. It's going to be an exciting - and long - day! We'll travel by train from Bristol to Salisbury early in the morning, and from there take a special tour bus to Stonehenge. During the approximately one-hour bus ride, an audio tour will be offered, thanks to which you will learn about the area around Stonehenge and Salisbury (available languages are English, German...). The Stonehenge Visitor Center also offers audio guides in many different languages and we will be able to explore it on our own for a few hours and take cool photos! I have a camera on hand for us there as well, of course. The advantage of a small group is that we are very flexible and can decide how long we stay where. On the way back we make a short stop in Old Sarum, one of the oldest settlements in England. In the afternoon we visit our last stop: Salisbury Cathedral. Here you can see the Magna Carta from 1215, which is displayed in the chapter house of the cathedral. The evening is at our leisure. Either spend more time in Salisbury or return to Bristol for dinner. (All entrance fees, tour bus in Salisbury and train tickets included; bus tickets within Bristol, lunch and dinner not included).

Bristol

Day 3-4
Day 3: Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and Banksy Art "People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish.... but that's only if it's done properly." - Banksy If you like, you can really sleep in today, because after breakfast we will head out to the old town of Bristol and explore the city on our own. We will be able to experience the highlights of the street art of many generations of street artists, marvel at the original works of probably the most famous artist of our time - Banksy. After the city tour we will have plenty of time for lunch in a restaurant or English pub. I have some suggestions ready for a traditional English "carvery" (meat platter) or for a light lunch. Everyone will get their money's worth! (Lunch not included). In the afternoon we go by bus (bus ticket exclusive, currently about 2,50€) to the famous and historic Suspension Bridge, where the biggest hot air balloon festival in Europe takes place. The International Balloon Fiesta is a huge international event, with teams from many countries in Europe and around the world launching their balloons simultaneously! In the evening, it's especially beautiful to see the balloons rise brightly in different colors! Definitely a great end to a great weekend :).

Bristol

Day 4
Day 4: Departure from Bristol It's dawning the last day of your weekend trip. If you have an early flight, you can say good-bye to the group the night before. Check-out is at noon on Monday. Those staying longer can leave their backpack or suitcase at the front desk for safekeeping and use the remaining time to explore the city. I will still be in Bristol until about 11am on Monday and will be happy to share more tips. There are still so many cool things and places to discover in Bristol! There's not much left to add: Sign up now and discover England together!
