Stonehenge from Bath
, Aug 2019
My husband and I, along with our two adult sons booked this tour during a recent visit to the U.K. Our guide, Phoenix, was very knowledgeable and he made sure we had a wonderful experience. We toured Stonehenge in the morning and then toured the Countryside. We stopped at a lovely place for lunch, visited an old castle and made two other stops before returning to our hotel. I highly recommend this tour and our guide.
Jules was amazing, informative and engaging! Small Group was perfect-met two new friends (Pauline and Tony)! It was spectacular to see authentic English towns instead of the commercialized areas. Really enjoyed!! In fact this was one of our favorite parts of our entire trip!! Highly recommend!!
The Day tour with Jules was fantastic. He was so cheerful to be with and his knowledge of British history was excellent. The perfect day tour around the countryside surroundings of Bath for our short visit. Thank you!
We truly enjoyed our small group tour of Stonehenge and Authentic England from Bath. Having a guide who was able to educate our small group on the mysteries of Stonehenge, as well as immerse us in beautiful and historical village life was priceless. Jules is such a personable guy, that by the end of the tour we all felt like friends. We also really appreciated his visual and even audio resources. You can tell he has a teaching background! Thanks Jules for a great day. We will recommend you to all our friends traveling thru Bath.
Stayed at DUKES hotel about 5 minutes walk from the river. Lovely place, very clean with a good breakfast menu. The staff were the highlight. Super friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Carol the owner was superb as was her number 1 assitant David. Hats off to a great hotel. Took a tour with Around and About Bath. Julian the tour guide runs his business and I would class it as a boutique tour. Being an ex History teacher he is loaded with tons of facts and history of Stonehenge and the surrounds of Bath. He is such a personable guy who is focused on making sure you have a great experience. Finally, if you do nothing else make sure you have a spa at the Gainsbridge Hotel. Forget the public spa. Go top shelf. The experience is one in a lifetime and you and you alone are the focus of the staff. Hats off to Roberto. Treated us like royalty. What a great guy. Come to bath, do these three things and totally spoil yourself. Cheers to all. Phil and Liz Aus
Jules, We just can't thank you enough it's been 3 weeks since the tour and we are still talking about you. Your tour was the highlight of our entire 3 week trip. Stonehenge was a bucket list for The Grandparents however we were looking for something we as a family hadn't done. So the secrets of Somerset was intriguing and we are so happy we did the tour. Jules tied in so many neat stories and history lessons to all the different places we visited it was amazing. I apologize I'm being deliberately vague so I don't give away any secrets. His teaching background really comes thru especially in his desire to accommodate for everyone. One of our 3 sons is Autistic and can be very distracting but Jules never missed a beat and was very engaging to everyone. Thanks again Jules we wish you a happy and prosperous new year!
