Description
Board a luxury coach in central London in the morning. Pop in your state-of-the-art Vox headphones and listen to your guide’s informative commentary as you begin your day trip into the English countryside.

Salisbury Cathedral
The beautiful Salisbury Cathedral is an international symbol of Christianity and a world class heritage attraction. The spire is the tallest in England, 123 meters (404 feet). Once inside you'll be impressed by the Cathedral's graceful, elegant proportions. We visit The Chapter House home to one of only 4 surviving copies of The Magna Carta and see the oldest working clock in Europe, dating back to 1386.

Afternoon Tea at Salisbury Cathedral
Enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea in the beautifully quaint Bell Tower Tea Rooms overlooking the North Lawn of the Cathedral. This elegant afternoon tea includes sandwiches, scones, jam and a delicate selection of cakes and fancies, complete with teas, coffees and juices.

Mysterious Stonehenge
5,000 years ago the huge 40 tonne stones were dragged from over 280 miles away in Wales. Who built it and why remains a mystery today. Some say that it was built as a religious temple, or an astronomical clock. Stonehenge continues to enthrall the imagination and captivate the heart of every visitor.

Bath
This beautiful Georgian city justly deserves its status as a World Heritage Site, with its delightful terraces, elegant crescents and stunning architecture, on our panoramic tour of the city we will show you the crescents, Pulteney Bridge modelled on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence and Bath Abbey. Enjoy free time to explore this beautiful city.

Absolutely Amazing!! The day is jammed packed with the three different stops, but you have enough time at each place to see the highlights and the guides really know what they're talking about and provide interesting and enjoyable insights. If you're a history buff I'd definitely recommend this tour as the Salisbury stop includes a visit to view an original copy of the Magna Carter. We loved Bath and will definitely we returning as we found ourselves wishing we had more time to explore the town.

After visiting these sites 40 years ago, we decided to do a return tour with the Viator trip. That was a great move for we had a positive experience seeing these now UNESCO sites anew. The bus was very comfortable, the tour guide, Debbie, extremely knowledgable and energetic in sharing the historical facts and behind the scenes stories which all made for a long but well worth it day. Having done some reading and research made the visits much more meaningful. An amazing area for history buffs. Dolores

The tour guide and driver were wonderful! So informative and friendly. The sites were incredible. The only negative for me was time constraint. Three stops were too much to really take in the sites in more then a superficial way. Traffic was heavy, which is an unpredictable variable. I would choose one or two stops if i had it to do over.

We highly recommend this trip. Emily and our driver James were excellent. Efficient and well cared for are two descriptions I would use. The day was long so for those who get tired easily it might be good to just do 2 destinations. And although you get just a short introduction to places we loved it

As everyone says, long day BUT wished we could have stayed longer at each site, particularly Bath.

This tour started at Stonehenge, run run, move on to Salisbury..very nice... keep running. Move on to Bath. Swallow your food and run again, must catch bus on time or else. Otherwise, it was a very great trip, definitely worth it! Our tour guide was very nice and wonderful. The company was Evan Evans Tours. It's worth it if you are trying to see a lot in one day, otherwise only do 2 of the 3.
Just for your information, Victoria Coach Station is a mess, very confusing and disorganized. Make sure to arrive there early. In addition, Viator needs to be more detailed in their description and itinerary of this tour. The website does not mention the location of your pick up and drop off until you purchase the tour. Viator should be more specific on all the details of this trip. I am a details person. I like to know everything before I purchase.

This trip does squeeze in a lot for the time allotted. I would recommend that the tour start at 8:00 Vs 9:00 so you have a little more time at Bath. We went on a Saturday and at Stonehenge the queue to get on the shuttle buses from the Bus stop out to the actual site was a 1/2 wait to board a shuttle bus. Did not leave us enough time to walk the site and listen to the audio guide that was provided. We were 10 minutes late getting on the bus and the guide was somewhat upset with us for holding up the bus. Time allotted for Salisbury Cathedral was fine but would have liked more time in Bath. Very pretty City and very interesting. Would have liked to have more time to wonder the streets. Buses were very clean and guide was friendly and knowledgeable.
