Description
Begin with a pickup from Victoria Coach Station. Hop aboard a luxury coach and plug into your state-of-the-art Vox headphones so you can hear your guide’s commentary as you journey into the beautiful English countryside.

After a 2-hour drive, arrive in the charming Wiltshire town of Salisbury, known for its 750-year-old cathedral that boasts the tallest spire in England. Set off to explore independently, or upgrade for a guided tour of the cathedral with your guide.

Enter Salisbury Cathedral and soak up the history and grandeur of one of the leading examples of Early English architecture. Then, visit the church’s chapter house, which displays one of the four surviving original copies of the Magna Carta. Spend two hours perusing the cathedral, exploring the captivating town and having lunch (own expense) at your leisure before boarding the coach and drive to your next destination.

Traveling even further back in time through the rolling Wessex landscape, you will arrive in Stonehenge. Who dragged these massive stones to this lonely plain near Salisbury 5,000 years ago, and why? These questions have haunted the minds of centuries of scholars. You will have the opportunity to walk around these magical stones and contemplate the landscape in which they were erected so many centuries ago.

Next, return to your coach and travel 30 minutes to the UNESCO-listed city of Bath, famous for its elegant Georgian architecture. Take in sights such as Bath Abbey, Pulteney Bridge and the Circus and Assembly Rooms.

Should you wish, upgrade to enjoy a visit to the Roman Baths, the best-preserved public baths from the Ancient Roman world, beautifully restored during the Victorian era. Hear from your guide about the source of these famous hot springs and discover the baths’ uses by the Celts and Romans. Alternatively, enjoy free time to explore the city center at your own pace.

When the time comes, settle into your seat aboard your luxury coach and relax during the 2.5-hour journey back to London.

Viator cancelled this tour on us by email the day before it took place. They said that not enough people had signed up for the tour. But they stepped up and offered us an alternative tour with some upgrades. We ended going to Stonehenge, Windsor and Bath. So it all turned out fine, although the bus was packed. Viator seems to be accommodating to it's customers.

The tour was a long day, but got to see a lot of cool places! If you like history and old architecture then this is trip worth taking.

I booked this tour because I could pick and choose the tours that I actually wanted to see. When I arrived on the bus the Tour Guide is telling me to see all 3 attractions is 30 pounds. He did not ask me what tours I would like to do, he just expected for me to do all 3. I had a problem with that. I was looking to explore the towns especially Salisbury. They have a beautiful cathedral but I wasn't interested in seeing it. I think the Tour Guide shouldn't just assume that you are on the Tours for the attractions especially when the title of the tour say "Custom Day Trip".

After getting to the Victoria coach station and meeting up with the guide and then been told I had to pay an additional 30Lbs for entrance fees that immediately set things download Hill for the rest of the day. Tour guide was just OK Stonehenge was disappointing. Bath was great
