What People Are Saying About Bath
It was a long day but very much worth the cost. I feel that we were given enough time in each venue. The drawback being that by the time we arrived in Bath all the sites were closed as well as many stores.
Our guide and driver were very well organised. The guide was very knowledgeable about our tour destinations and made sure to let us know to pick up a lunch to eat on the ride between Windsor Castle and Bath. highly recommend, would do another tour with this company.
Very good tour. Guide was excellent. Of the 11 hours two-thirds was spent driving due to the distances. Would have preferred more time at the sites.
Very good trip to Stonehenge and Bath. Our tour guide Yasmine was very helpful, organised and gave us useful information. We had plenty of time to go explore each location, and the drive there and back was comfortable. Thank you highly recommend for future trips!
Siobhan did an excellent job of giving us just the right amount of information for each site. There were plenty of crowds but we were corralled carefully and expertly, as we went from one venue to the next. I didn't feel I needed any more time than we had at each stop, but it was a big day nonetheless.
