What people are saying about Bath
We went to Hampton court instead of Windsor, personally I would have preferred Windsor (told in advance) but Hampton was beautifull as well with alot of interesting history. What really made the tour above and beyond was Gavin, he was personable, respectfull, knowledgeable, and knew how to think on his feat to make sure any problems that arose did not affect the tour. He was extremely professional and made the day one to remember. Make sure go get Gavin if you want to have an enjoyable time!
There were only my husband, me and one other woman on this tour. Tom and Simon (our driver) tagged team to act as tour guides and were informative and totally entertaining. We had a beautiful clear day for the White Cliffs of Dover and Dover Castle. We could see France! Canterbury was a charming town with the beautiful and important Church. We had a nice lunch at a pub there.
Rosie was an excellent guide, funny, informative and interesting. The tour went off without a hitch from the meeting place to the tickets for Stonehenge and our time in Bath. It was my fiance's 50th birthday and we both really enjoyed our day. Rosie did a great job with everything, including handling a traffic accident that delayed us by 45 minutes getting into Bath.
This was a great way to get a taste of all three sites. We had about 2 hours at each stop. Peter, our guide, gave us tips as we reached each spot to help us see the most important sites at each stop. Peter also regaled is with important, and some fun, information and London and each stop. It was a lovely day and I would book again!
We really liked Stonehenge and Avebury. Would have liked it even more with a guide on board. The audios were not available at Stonehenge so more info from a guide would have made it an even better experience . The van was great and preferable to a bus.
