Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the England in One Day: Stonehenge, Bath, the Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon Day Trip from London. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
A big title but the tour is worth it if you're short on time and covers some important places like Stonehenge, stops at Bath, Stratford-On-Avon and passes through the Cotswolds. It's good coverage for a single day.
Highly Recommended especially if you want to get a little taste of England in a day.
This is a fantastic tour and all three stops on this itinerary are worth seeing! Stratford-on-Avon is a beautiful little town and our family enjoyed the scones and champagne (or orange juice) while looking out the window at the lovely garden around William Shakespeare's childhood home. The drive through the Cotswold's revealed magnificent scenery of the English countryside on our way to Bath. Bath is a picturesque town with much to see and do. The only downside of this trip is that there is not adequate time to see Bath because this is the stop where you eat lunch which limits your sightseeing time. The guides offered us the chance to grab a sandwich and eat it when we got back on the bus and we should have taken them up on it. Fifteen more minutes would have made a difference for sure. Then back on the bus and on your way to Stonehenge which is a magnificent sight whose origins remains a mystery even today. This tour does not allow one to get inside the stone circle or touch the stones. I had the pleasure of this opportunity on a previous visit, but these spaces are limited. Even so, the majesty of the stones and their unique placement are awesome. There is a very nice gift shop on site also. Our tour guide was named Frank and the bus driver was Steve. These two guys did an outstanding job. Frank's commentary was very interesting, never boring, and offered invaluable insight of the areas. They managed the entire tour efficiently and competently, always considerate of our needs. I highly recommend this tour.
Excellent day seeing some historical sights as well as some absolutely stunning Cotswold countryside.....
A perfect day's getaway from london....Mark ( our tour guide ) was excellent and his perfect " Henry V "
Performance would have earned him a standing ovation had we not all had our seat belts on.....instead he received a " sitting "ovation !.........I highly recommend this tour !
I'm so glad I did this trip! I was in England (London) for only 4.5 days last week and wanted to be sure I got outside of the city. I booked this day trip after hearing it was great from my cousin. The weather was great and we really enjoyed seeing Stratford (and the scone/champagne in Shakespeare's garden), Bath (going inside of the Roman Baths is about 15 pounds) and Stonehenge. The drive through the Cotswolds was beautiful... I had a great day and would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see more than just the city of London :)
Awesome tour!! Loved it! Had the best driver and guide! Very knowledgable and friendly. Was able to see so much of the countryside and a great day out of the city,
Great trip. Our guide Frank was very informative and told interesting things along our trip. The whole process from booking the trip to the end of the trip was easy and without any trouble. Very recomended to those who want a bit different experience of England not just London.
Fantastic day. Long day and fast moving as to be expected when you see how many miles are covered. David and Malcolm made this trip even more enjoyable as aside to the beautiful scenery, they provided laughs and a great atmosphere along the way and of course a lot of interesting and valuable information. As we were short on time, this trip was one we were really glad to have taken.
The was a great way to see many of the fabulour things in England. The orchestration of getting on the bus at the Bus terminal was a little confusing as they didn't have the tour reflected correctly on the monitor, but the tour guide was great and made the trip a very enjoyable experience. He was extremely knowledgeable, added fun and drama to the trip and was very good at making everyone feel part of the trip.
Great guide who was entertai ning and showed us all we wanted to see.
the trip was amazing and entirely thanks to our terrific guide David! so funny, knowledgeable and insightful. a very inspiring man who clearly relates to the places we have been to and is very keen to pass on the knowledge and history of them. wonderful!
Punctual. Interesting and informative commentary. Stratford upon Avon was maically picturesque; lovely Cotswolds sceenery andmysteriously majestic Stonehenge! Well worth it!
This tour was awesome! The guide was super and shared lots of information both factual and gossip. He made the whole trip fun and entertaining even recited Shakespeare along the way. Very fun and informative.
We enjoyed the trips. The tour guider's rich knowledge and very experience.
Okay David, I know you are going to read this and it's going to be one of the good reviews!. David is a one-of-a kind tour guide who is very funny and knowledgeable. With a sardonic sense of humor and great timing, off we went to Stonehenge, Stafford on Avon ("they haven't used "upon" for over one-hundred years"--Thank you David!) and Bath, intently focused on his stories of history, some interesting personal disclosures and literate descriptions of the landmarks, we enjoyed every moment.
If you are a person that does not take yourself too serious and want to be truly educated about these landmarks, David is your man. My wife and I are still talking about the fun we had on this tour. By the way David, I really am trying to get back into Shakespeare. We hope you are having a good year with your students at school. Sarah is enjoying her new math students this school year and I was thinking how much our part of Virginia resembles the English countryside.
Until we meet again.
This was a good tour for people with limited time in England. Being a large group tour was OK but I wish I had taken a small group option. The guide and driver were both excellent and looked after everyone really well. With a larger group, unfortunately, you are at the mercy of other travellers and some other travellers do not follow instructions well when it comes to meeting times. This is not a comment against the tour just a comment about large group tours.
The Bath city tour was amazing, as if it stood still in time. Enjoyed both Stonehenge and also Stratford upon Avon too. Long day but great value.
Guide extremely knowledgable. Tour very well organized with gd mix of free time, guided time and bus time. Shakespeare's birthplace highlight as not crowded, relaxed and champagne and scone a nice touch upon arrival.
This Tour was a one shot hit all the main places :)
The tour guide is so helpful and is rather funny aswell.
It is a long day with a good amount of driving but once you arrive you will see its worth every cent :)
Tour guide was excellent!!!! So informative! A busy day with fitting a lot into one trip and well worth the money! You really get a feel for England on this one! I highly recommend it.
Thoroughly enjoyed Stonehenge and Bath The countryside was absolutely beautiful
Wonderful way to get a taste of four different "hot spots" in England. Especially enjoyed the visit to Shakespeare's birthplace. Our driver Malcolm was friendly, witty and accomodating in every way! Our tour guide Nick was excellent and possessed an absolute wealth of knowledge. He provided so much history and interesting stories about all of the places we visited. If you really want to spend any significant time in any of these places this is not the tour for you. However, if you want to squeeze all of these sites into a day's adventure this tour delivers!
