I was in London for five weeks and this was my favourite tour. There was a lot of construction around the pickup point and I was the last one to find it, but tour guide Andrew's charm and corny jokes soon put me back in a good mood. I was not expecting to be bowled over by Stonehenge given some of the other online comments, but it was awesome! The secret place -- complete with curious sheep -- was well chosen as a lead-in to the main event, and Andrew's genuine passion for Stonehenge and its mysteries prepared us well for understanding the significance of what we were about to experience. He clearly had mastered the subject and was able to answer questions at any level of factual or philosophical complexity. The decision to take us there as the last stop provided the opportunity for a magnificent sunset as a backdrop. There were few enough people at the site that is was easy to take pictures without other people in them, adding to the impression of timelessness. The visit to Bath was enchanting and there was plenty of time to have lunch and see the nearby points of interest. The vehicle was comfortable and I appreciated the only demonstration of on-board safety equipment and exits that I experienced while travelling in the UK.
This tour was delightful and exceeded my high expectations. There is always a trade off between the expertise and logistics provided by a tour guide and the freedom and flexibility of independent travel. I can honestly say I could not have replicated this tour on my own. Our group was 16 people, which allowed for a little flexibility and barely any time wasted rounding people up. The bus was clean, comfortable and roomy. Chris, our tour guide, had a gift for presenting information in an insightful, conversational and often amusing style. As for the secret place, I am sworn to secrecy. So all I am going to say is that enhanced our experience and no one was disappointed.
Great tour company The English Bus and great tour guide with Andrew. Well worth the money spent to see all the sites and hear all the history.
My girlfriend and I went on this tour a little over a week ago and loved it! Our driver and guide, Andrew, was great! We started with a trip to Stonehenge. Before we arrived, Andrew gave us a lot of information and history about Stonehenge and the other historical sites that surround it which really helped us to appreciate and understand what we were seeing. Then, it was on to Bath, where Andrew gave us a nice driving tour of the city along with some history that again was very informative. During the free time we had in the city, my girlfriend and I were able to have lunch would highly recommend The Huntsman pub just behind the cathedral in Bath for a nice meal and a pint, go through the historical Roman bath's that the city is known for, and take a walk along the river with some time to spare before we had to meet back at the bus. From Bath, it was on to the secret spot and then back to London. It was also operated as a small group tour, which made it feel very personal and added to the experience. The bus was comfortable, which allowed us to get some rest in between stops. Overall, it was a great day! I would definitely recommend this or any other tour operated by The English Bus to anyone looking for a great day trip from London!
Small groups are the best! Johnny was a great guide, very entertaining as well as knowledgable, and the sights and times spent at attractions well organised. A great day!
Thanks to English Bus guide, Johny, who did an outstanding job, I thoroughly enjoyed that tour viewing many of England's treasures.
This tour was great. Andrew and Andy really go out of their way to show you a good time. They point out tons of interesting things while driving and are very funny. I highly recommend this tour!
Our guide was particularly engaging and informative. The size of the group and bus made it well worth the price.
Andy and Chris were very entertaining and informative guides. We especially enjoyed the secret place. The overall itinerary was good and well placed.
Excellent tour. Collin, our guide, made it very special. I was traveling alone and he made it feel like traveling with family.
Places visited were great and the information provided on each was very good. We also have appropriate time in each location to walk around. A memorable experience. I recommend it.
