A wonderful, cosy experience where you feel well taken care of. Our friendly guide, Tony, is detailed and knowledgeable and took care to chat with each group in our tour of 12 pax. A great way to see Stonehenge, Bath and the secret place. Tony even dropped us off near our hotels instead of the morning’s pick up point which is much appreciated after a long day. Highly recommended!

Richard is a wealth of knowledge. The tour was one of our favourite activities and gave us a taste of a few areas. Bath is worth the visit. Also when he says be on the bus, you must be there.

Had great time and loved and enjoyed all the “useless infos” along the way.

Wonderful trip! Thank you to our guide Ari, she’s so wonderful.

Andrew excellent and engaging. A good experience!
