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.
Loved this, such a nice drive out to stonehenge. traffic is a nightmare getting back into london but it was fine! would do this again. Bath is absolutely stunning!
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.
Hotel pick up was early.
Once on the terminal you have to know which tour your in so its better to print this at HOME!! i had to to go to their office and was the last one to get on the bus!!
very informative on our way to both places!!
Got to our first stop like at 11Am stonehenge recommend to go straight to see it and then go to the visitors information center. Lunch pack was from subway Ok but no Protein on the sandwich. Bath is Beautiful very happy to have spend all afternoon there!! it was enough time to walk in town and see the roman baths. Also Credits to Saul our Guide He took all of us to see the Royal Crescent on an angle to take pictures!! just Breathtaking!!
We were glad we didn't have to drive to these places, as the traffic was chaotic! Kudos to the bus driver and our guide for getting us through. I'm sorry I don't remember his name. We had a nice time in Bath and only wish we had more time to look around the town. After the walking tour and the tour of the Roman Baths, we only had time for lunch and then back to the bus. The Stonehenge portion of the tour was fine, with enough time to do everything we wished to do. We took some great pictures and have wonderful memories of our vacation in London.
Loved this! Our tour guide was super sweet, everything ran according to plan and the place we had lunch was delicious! Highly recommend this.
Tour guide well informed and friendly. Bus driver competent and friendly. It was a good 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.

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.
The bus driver was excellent, but I had difficulties understanding the tour guide. I am very hard of hearing set up front, but it made no difference, unlike the other two tours and guides I had.
Very good guide. Stonehenge was amazing and the highlight of the day. While Bath is a fascinating town, the Roman Baths were disappointing - there were so many people there that it was difficult to enjoy them.
So, unfortunately, booking through viator was a pain- I would first and foremost recommend just trying to find the company itself, because that gave us significant issues to start out with. Secondly, Golden Tours seemed rather disorganized and stingy: they advertise free wifi, but in reality it is limited and they don't tell you that until it's gone. Not that I need wifi, I would just like to know all the information beforehand. Which brings me to my next point: the trip could have been longer to accommodate more than one activity in Bath, but there was little to no description on that in the listing to help me make the decision. In the end I was able to make it work, but it just wasn't the same. Basically, I was looking for transportation to make the trip easier, and wanted a little more independence, but that really wasn't facilitated by the tour very well. So, I guess, just know what it is you want out of the experience to see if this is for you, and maybe make a few calls or emails to verify the plans as the website isn't very helpful, although another man told me that the tour didn't even stay true to what he was told over the phone anyways, so keep that in mind.
The tour guide provided very little information about the locations. The seats on the bus were very uncomfortable. We are a tall but lightweight family and all of us felt the seats were really bad. We took the tour to avoid renting a car.
