Is 5.5 hours really long enough for a layover tour at LHR

Jump to last reply

I have inquired about a layover tour for July 5, 2013 from londonblacktaxi.net. We land at 10 am and depart 3:30pm. They are suggesting a 2 or 3 hour tour of "Windsor and the castle".

I have never done anything like this and I have never been in The UK...it is very appealing to put the layover to good use but it makes me nervous...has anyone done this sort of thing? Particularly out of LHR? Does it sound reasonable? 80£ an hour for 2 pax so it ain't cheap...but cheaper than an entirely separate trip back for sure and might peak interest for a future trip...

Thoughts?? FYI, our trip is an overnight transatlantic from Miami with a final destination of Barcelona. This would be the first leg of the trip.
