This was well worth the money and really fun! Although, I had an injured knee both the driver Matt AND the tour guide Leon made every effort so that I was comfortable and happy. Our group was only 3, but the double-decker bus was completely full. We all enjoyed the vast reservoir of knowledge and wit Leon displayed through his educational and funny narratives during the trip. He also made sure everyone was on the bus before we left each destination. In addition, he answered endless questions with patience and professionalism.

We all felt safe with Matt driving the bus and he too was very knowledgable and gracious. He told us about his vast experience and stories pertaining to his career when asked. I must say he was very aware and attentive throughout the whole trip AND we were in some crazy traffic at times! Thank you, Matt! We'll see you again!

We enjoyed our tour guide’s dry humor and wit. Paul our driver was
very good and he too was funny. Enough time was given for us to
immerse ourselves in both locations.

We chose this combination because it seemed to give a good amount of time to each area. Stonehenge was about 1.5 hours which is more than enough time. Bath was about 3.5. We could have spent more time there. Definitely going back again but for a tour, this covers the basics. Our guide and driver, Dominick and Ady (sp?) were great! Very informative and entertaining the entire trip.

Highly recommend this tour!

Amazing guide and a very enjoyable tour. The market city of Bath was very nice.

Carol was an excellent and informative tour guide and Abdul a safe driver. We had enough time to see Jane Austen centre, Roman Baths, have lunch, shop and just sit and enjoy the scenery. My daughter and I had such a great time that we want to come back to Bath. The trip did take 12hrs but it was work it.

This tour is overall really good but could be scheduled better. The only thing I would change is the confusion at Victoria Station. There were so many tours departing and so many people crowded around I wish they would improve upon that. The Tour guide and the bus driver were really helpful and knowledgable. Stonehenge was a little crowded so the Guide gave us a little more time since there were one too many tours out that day. Bath was beautiful but I wish they would give you more time there. We only had 3 hours to eat, explore the city and do the Roman Baths. Not a long time really. I didn't get to see much of the city cause the lines in the restaurant were a bit long. I think since we went during busy season it affected our timing but overall I was happy with the tour.

It was good. Stonehenge, well is a set of rocks. Wasn't what we wanted but due to the royal wedding, we had to pick a different tour on this day and this is what we got. Bath is beautiful, but not a lot to see.

Fun tour overall and managed to see some interesting things. Details: 1. You leave from Victoria Coach Station which is the standard definition of ghetto in London. The company manages be relatively clear on which gate to queue at so at least you got that. Coach is a nice double-decker and extremely clean. 2. Dominic is by far the most fun guide I ever had. His voice is radio worthy and even throughout London he plays the full guide role - not just at Stonehenge and Bath. 100/10 rating for him! 3. You get an hour and a half in Stonehenge - relatively enough for a well informed tour around the site. Even had time for a coffee after while waiting for bus. 10/10. 4. Bath - things get interesting here. We had the Roman Baths included - so we arrive and get a total 3 hours and a half... enough to do everything including eating? You would think so... WRONG! The entry is one hour after arrival, so you have to rush and eat somewhere. Bath is beautiful but overrun with tourists I mean we were one of them too so we added to the problem and the bars/pubs cannot even remotely accommodate the sheer amount of people. Ended up eating some tasteless salads close to the Roman Baths so we could catch the tour. Then we caught Roman Baths - interesting history of Roman Britain. Takes 1hr and a half for a proper tour. At the end the tour, our guide offered us a 1hr walk until departure, we refused it so we have at least 1hr to explore Bath at our pace. Conclusion - 3hrs and a half is barely enough to eat, do Roman Baths and maybe something else quickly. Quite shocking how that could happen 5: Bath to London is nearly 3 hours and bus doesn't stop for toilets. Several people had to go and literally said they may go on the bus while the driver was reluctant to stop. Finally did a 5 min emergency stop. Really, for a 3hr drive back to London you could add an extra stop without people nearly bursting their bladder. CONCLUSION: Guide adds an extra star for sure and is worth the tour, Stonehenge is fine for time. Bath is not as nice as advertised, and despite the 3hrs and a half there, their poor time management, lack of food provided and long tour of Roman Baths ensure that you are still running around and feeling as if you never really enjoyed the city. And finally do not hit too many pints of beer at the local Bath pubs because you will break your bladder on the way back.

The tour itself is very informative. We really enjoyed seeing Stonehenge, although people are no longer allowed to walk among the stones. We also enjoyed the Roman baths in Bath. There are a few hours to spend in Bath, we had lunch and had time to wander around the town for a bit. If you want to get to these 2 places, this is one fairly easy way to do it. HOWEVER, please note that the bus does not have a bathroom. It's about 2 hours to Stonehenge, another hour to Bath, and then about 3 hours back to London so be sure to plan accordingly. Also, the bus station at Victoria was very busy and there are very limited signs. It was difficult to figure out where we were supposed to get on the bus - better signage is required.

A long day but the time spent in each location was balanced appropriately.
Guide Karen was very informative from London all the way to Bath.
Richard was a great driver for such a big coach through London and
thin roads into Bath.
Recommend seeing the Roman Baths - we had plenty of time to walk/shop/eat in Bath afterwards.
Only suggestion - the seats on the coach are like economy on the airlines
A little more space would have been appreciated.
