Mad Max Tours Questions & Answers

Longford, Ireland

Hi, I'm going to Bath in early May & am very interested in your tours but problem is I can't choose which tour! I really want to visit the quaint little villages so am thinking tour 2 but is it "too many" villages, i.e. see 1 or 2, that's sufficient?

Tour 1 seems a bit more varied, a few less villages but with Stonehenge & Avebury .. but 2-3hrs seems a lot of time at those locations?? Is there enough there to keep occupied for that amount of time?

Many thanks for your advice!

Hello,

Well both tours are popular but if you’d like to see Stonehenge and Avebury as well as villages then Tour 1 is the one for you! I can’t remember anyone saying they had too much time anywhere - there is so much to see. I have done both tours and find it hard to say which I prefer. I LOVE Avebury as you can touch the stones, but the Cotswolds offer stunning landscapes and Stow on the Wold is just lovely for lunch. Sorry not to be more help! Either way you will have a great day!

Many thanks for your question. The main stops on our highly acclaimed Cotswold tour are Castle Combe, Bibury, Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water. These villages and small towns all have a very different feel. Some are bustling whilst others are peaceful. You'll see mellow dry stone walls in abundance, limestone tiled roofs and a great selection of cottages and grand houses and churches. We also have brief stops at other interesting places en route, that also add variety and a different historical perspective.

On Tour 1 we do spend 2 hours at Stonehenge as there is a fascinating visitor centre to explore as well as the stones. At Avebury we spend about an hour and the village is interesting in its right with a cobbled high street, small manor house and thatched 17th century pub. The 3 villages on this tour offer a variety of architecture as you have a mix of limestone, old clay brickwork and timbered buildings.

It's a difficult choice! If you join us for 2 tours we refund £10 per person on your second tour, which makes it excellent value.

Good Luck & all Good Wishes Maddy

I did the tour 1 and I thought it was the best one . They even stopped to let us play with the horses .

We started at 7:30am - until about 5pm.

It's a perfect starter tour

Would recommend the Tour that takes in Stonehenge & Avebury. Pick up was 8.30 got back to Bath at 5.30 which was just right to take everything in. Didn't feel rushed or too much time at any point, the guide was telling us lots of interesting facts along the journey so it was all good and you could go off on your own or he would walk with anyone that wanted to during the stops. We took our own food but there was places to buy during stops if you preferred. A very pleasant day.
