A nice tour to the Stonehenge, about an hour drive away, the tour gives some facts and points out some POI. It was just the right amount of infomation and tips. The driver was very nice, and had plenty of time to see the sights.

We left spot on time, it was a comfortable ride (just under an hour) and the Driver/tour guide was both informative and very pleasant. They do everything for you, even getting the audio guides and bringing them to the bus with the tickets. It goes...More

Thanks for your review and kind comments. As you say, we are at Stonehenge longer than most other companies and although 2 hours is ample time for the vast majority of our customers, we are sorry to hear that you would have liked longer. Hopefully,...More

They said they'll pick you up at the designated area at 2:00 in Bath, and they were there at 1:50 with clipboard to check you off the list. They left on time and had some lovely commentary when applicable on the 70 minute bus ride...More

The tour was excellent. Our guide, John, was great at explaining everything about Stonehenge and during the tour. The tours are organised in small comfy buses, which makes it better for hearing the explanations. The two hours at Stonehenge were good because less than that...More
