Depart your central London meeting point by air-conditioned coach, and journey out into the leafy English countryside. 

Make your first stop at UNESCO World Heritage-listed Stonehenge, one of the world’s best-known prehistoric monuments. Rising up from Salisbury Plain, this remarkable stone circle dates back some 4,500 years and is generally thought to have been a temple that marked the movements of the sun.

On arrival, head inside the site complex with its visitor center, collect an audio-guide, and visit the massive stone circle to experience its size and symmetry close up. Ponder the mysteries that surround the edifice, and learn the theories as to how the stones were transported and then raised here.

Next, continue to the delightful, UNESCO-protected spa city of Bath, famous for its elegant Georgian 18th-century architecture and connections with 18th- and 19th-century novelist Jane Austen. Explore the city center with your guide to admire the honey-stoned mansions, terraces and bridges, and enjoy a little free time to stroll around the cobbled streets at leisure.

Back aboard your coach, travel deep into the Cotswolds, a region of rolling hills, green pastures and stone-built villages that’s considered perhaps the loveliest in England. Soak up the gorgeous views of the lush fields honeycombed with dry stone walls, and pass through bustling market towns crowned by impressive churches.

Arrive in the charm-laden town of Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of England’s greatest playwright, William Shakespeare, and home to the famous Royal Shakespeare Company. Take in the half-timbered houses and Avon River that winds through the town. Then, enjoy glass of Champagne and traditional English scones in the garden of Shakespeare's childhood home (or indoors in winter), and stretch your legs around Stratford’s quaint center. Please note: As of April 1, Shakespeare's birthplace will be replaced with a visit to Shakespeare's Schoolroom, including Champagne and scones, a tour, and a school lesson as it was back in Shakespeare's time.

When your visit to Stratford ends, return to your coach and drive back to London where your tour concludes.

We had an excellent tour guide who shared lots of information on the history of all the areas visited. We highly recommend this tour! We could not have had a better guide or driver!!

The tour went to Stonehenge, Bath, Stratford upon Avon, and through the Cotswolds. The guide was very knowledgeable, and there was plenty of free time at each stop. Highly recommend!

I will recommend first-timers to just choose Stonehenge and Bath. Cotswolds will just a drive pass-by. There was no stop overs due to time constraint. Stonehenge was 1 hour stop. Bath was 2 hours stop. Going through the Bath museum was about 30-45mins excluding Lunch. Cotswolds was a drive-past. Stratford upon Avon was 1 hour with 30mins of experience at Shakespeare's school.

It is worth spending a full day covering 3 key major sites. I enjoyed very much in comfortable bus hearing a tour guide explanation. I rate it the best.

Felt very rushed. The tour guide seemed annoyed with his job. Beautiful sights.

I wish there was more time in Bath but over all we had a great time. This tour helped maximize our UK experience in a short amount of time.

Our tour guide David was very knowledgeable and provided lots of history and information during the trip. Stonehenge was amazing and the audio headsets helpful in explaining what we were seeing. We really enjoyed Bath and wished we had been able to spend more time there. Seeing the baths was amazing and highly recommended though there was an extra fee to enter. If I had to do it over again I would opt for just Stonehenge and Bath so that more time could have been spent at both places.

Alan Doyle set the table right from the get go. With a heavy weight line up of sites to visit: Stonehenge, Bath, passage through the Cotswold, and the Stratford-upon-the-Avon, he entertained us throughout the bus trip with humor, wit and charm. His patience and bonhomie merited applause from my wife and myself. High recommend the trip and the tour guide.

Steve Maynard was informative and delightful. We arrived at Stonehenge well ahead of the throngs of other tour buses and my only regret is that the Stratford portion of the tour does not include a visit to Shakespeare's grave.An incredible day and a wonderful way to see so much of the English countryside in only 12 hours.
