Step aboard your luxury coach for a full-day tour of two of England’s most captivating historic sites. Spend the morning discovering the UNESCO-listed city of Bath, where your tour includes entrance to the ancient Roman Baths and Pump Room, and you’ll have time to visit landmarks like the Pulteney Bridge, Bath Abbey and the Royal Crescent. After lunch, travel to Salisbury Plain to view the imposing stone circle of Stonehenge and unravel the facts and myths about the prehistoric enigma.
Stonehenge was amazing, and Bath was OK. I know a lot of other reviews had the opposite reaction because I based my tour options on them. The boxed lunch was not great, and I was a little disappointed that we had headsets for the actual tours inside Stonehenge and the Roman Baths. I guess I didn't read the fine print. The tour guide while in the bus was amazing and exceptionally witty. I would recommend the tour, but be ready for a long day.
Great tour. Felt a bit rushed at Stonehenge ( I wish I could listen to more of the audioguide) but had plenty of time in Bath which was great. Our guide was funny and informative. Driver was professional and friendly. A fun day out.
Everything I wanted from this have to do bucket list tour. Was glad I restricted myself to the 2 places, and didn't try to squeeze in Windsor Castle, or any kind of third stop.
Enjoyed the information the driver gave, along with the folk I was with.
This has nothing to do with the tour itself, but i found Stonehenge underwhelming. Perhaps it was because one of the Youtube videos available that told me that the present structure was put together, I think in the late 40's, with cranes and cement, but I get that the stones have been there a long time, and the present structure may accurately depict what was once there, so even though nobody is 100 sure why people went to a lot of bother to put Stonehenge together a long time ago, it is a necessary bucket list thing to see before you die, and I don't want to spoil the experience for anyone else.
Bath, for me personally, was a very different experience from Stonehenge. I love Roman history, and was further impressed with the cultures architectural brilliance and social organization. The town of Bath also, would make a wonderful get away spot for anyone with a flair for a quaint and unique community with lots of interesting shops and history.
Competent and well informed driver, great tour, no regrets.
Enjoyed the tour. Spent the right amount of time at Stonehenge about 2 hours, and not enough time in Bath. Both places were wonderful and would highly recommend seeing both of them. If I were to do this over, I'd look to do a separate 1/2 day trip just to Bath. The driver was great and the tour guide added some nice background and bits of history to the tour.
If I went again, I would take train to Bath, stay overnight and get a side trip to Stonehenge. This is a LONG trip to/from, especially with London traffic. Directions at departure point are not existent, guide was okay, the 'box lunch' is given as you depart the bus in Bath 11am and you have to eat it on the walk. Group was too big for guide to effectively communicate with entire group, you might want to use individual headphones. Bath is certainly worth staying overnight.
This is a very good example of Roman life in England. The history and centuries of re-purposing are explained and shown in the baths. More interesting for me as an engineer is the explanation of the way the baths were built and worked. Very interesting are the video displays which bring the experience to life.
Excellent trip to Bath and Stonehenge. Lots of time in Bath - although one could always use more in bath. Stonehenge was excellent also with lots of time to tour the site and the Exhibition center. Our guide was great - gave us detailed information on the way to and from the sites - not only about Bath and Stonehenge but also about the sites we saw on the road.
