I'm kinda torn about these sweeping one-day tours. I like to settle into a place for a few days and really explore it. But sometimes it's just not an option to settle into several places on one trip, so you can either see things on a whirlwind trip like this one or not see them at all. I'm so glad I chose to see it!
To be really honest, most of our time was spent on the tour bus. But it was comfortable, and our tour guide was such a pleasure: super knowledgeable about British history, and he was an actual actor, so he performed Shakespeare for us as we were approaching Stratford-upon-Avon! Such a treat. We didn't stay in Stratford for very long, but that was okay, because there wasn't a ton to see. If I could have stayed anywhere longer it would have been Bath. Dreamy. And our guide gave us great suggestions for food and activities so we could make the most of our time. Stone Henge was magnificent, especially with the audio guide to provide more context.
All in all, this was just a really wonderful experience. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have several weeks to spend in England, but wants to get out of London for a bit.
Fabulous tour. Friendly tour guide Jason and very courteous drive Sid who took care of everyone on this tour.
Mr. Doyal our Guide and Mr. Simon were phenomenal.
The trip was an unforgettable experience.
This tour was wonderful! It certainly made for a full day, but worth it! In fact, I wish we would have had a bit more time at each stop. Our tour guide Jason was very knowledgeable and was very pleasant all day. The coach was very nice and clean. I definitely recommend this tour for those looking to get out of the city and see a bit of countryside. Stonehenge was stunning and Bath and Stratford were unique and offered plenty to do for the amount of time you had in each village.
Our tour guide, Magnus, was amazing!! He was very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas, and gave little tips, hints, and history along the way. Due to the trip already being 12 hours long, it's almost impossible to imagine spending any longer at the stops, but at times I found myself rushing through the attractions in the allotted amount of time given. If you are on a tight schedule though, during your vacation, and only have one day to spare to visit these amazing attractions, this is the perfect way to see everything. Can't recommend this trip highly enough!!
A great way to see the sights when you only have a short time
A very well organised day
Good tour! It is a very long day350 miles and 11hours but well worth it because you get to see so much in one day! The tour company was very organized and got us going on time. Got to spend a good amount of time in each location and history was given to us prior to the arrival at each location. I would definitely recommend this tour to others
Joined this tour from a central location - Victoria.
Wonderful long day combining 3 key locations. The drives were long but very scenic with excellent commentary from our guide I think his name was David, not just on the locations but on English history, royalty and way of life as well. Very enjoyable.
Enough time provided on all locations and we were able to get a glimpse of all key attractions.
If you have time, spend a night at Stratford with a show at the Swan! and Bath, we might do so next time.
But if you have only 1 day, this is absolutely recommended. I hope David will be your tour guide too!
Great guide. Very convenient. Also it covered a lot. After few booking with Viator, I yet to see a bad one : I am looking forward to my next one.
The tour guide was knowledgable and friendly. The entire experience was outstanding.
With such a short time allocated to staying in London we really wanted to explore the country side and we got it
Awesome tour fantastic tour guide and driver
Huge day but so worth seeing the country side of Cotswold and visiting bath and then onto Stonehenge

David was absolutely amazing with his in-depth knowledge on all things British right from the Monarchy, to the civil wars, Shakespeare. The tour was made especially enjoyable because he kept going the extra mile to make sure everyone was getting the best of the tour.
Time spent at stratfort-upon-avon is too short. Another hour to explore the place would have been appreciated. Likewise with Bath and shorter time at Stonehenge. A well spent whole day and value for money tour.
If you have limited time in UK, this is a must trip. The information is incredible. It would be very difficult to see all these sites without this tour. They get tickets and directed us to the highlights that we otherwise would not have known about.
I was traveling with a friend and we had limited time to take in the sights of the English countryside. I think this tour was the right choice for us. The countryside makes for beautiful viewing as your travel between destinations. Stratford-upon-Avon was picturesque as well as historically interesting. Touring the house where Shakespeare grew up was quite a treat. Bath was lovely as well and of particular interest to my friend who paid to tour the Roman baths. I saw what was available for free, which was still quite worth seeing, and we both drank the water. Having seen Stonehenge represented in many videos/movies, seeing it in person was almost overwhelming. Again the beauty and hundreds of years of history was awe-inspiring. I fully recommend this tour to anyone with limited time trying to maximize their English countryside experience.
This was a great tour to see many things in one day! It was a long day, with a lot of time spent on a bus, but there would have been no other way for us to have been able to see Stratford, Bath, and Stonehenge. Our tour guide was great as well.
The tour was excellent. I LOVED the tour guide. I would have liked to have spent much more time in Bath. Maybe extend the tour by 2 hours to give the extra time there would be exceptional.
It's definitely a do not miss!!!!
The tour was amazing! Frank our tour guide and Hulio our driver was fabulous.
It took me FOREVER to choose which bus tour to take and I and #39;m glad I chose this one. Our guide Frank was great- super informative without trying to be too cheesy funny. I loved each stop. Without this tour, I wouldn and #39;t have seen this much of England on my vacation. Don and #39;t worry---book this trip!
Fantastic, once before we got started. Tough and not very organized at Victoria Station, but once on the road, the tour guides and coach driver were super. It is a bit unrealistic to not have a bathroom on the coach. That should be approved.
Great tour, Frank our guide really knew his stuff and Martin our driver made the trip through the countryside very pleasant. Stonehenge was amazing! A must trip when visiting England.
Well worth the money. The guide was very attentive and informative. We were able to cover all the attractions in good time. The cotswolds though was not a stop, it was just a drive by.
