Description
After you are picked up in central London, depart for Glastonbury, passing through England's smallest Cathedral city of Wells. You will arrive in Glastonbury around 12am. You will have access to Glastonbury Abbey, and afterwards take advantage of some free time to explore Glastonbury and discover all about the legend of King Arthur and the famous Glastonbury Thorn. View the remains of St Michael’s church on top of the Tor, destroyed by a medieval earthquake.

At around 2:30pm, depart for Cheddar Gorge, named as the second greatest natural wonder in Britain. Upon arrival, you will be given free time to explore the village, gorge, and caves. Perhaps you could visit the famous Gough's Cave, which contains the Cheddar Yeo, the largest underground river system in Britain (admission not included).

At approximately 4:30pm, leave Cheddar for your return journey to London. As you travel on through the famous Cheddar Gorge, keep a lookout for the wild goats clinging to the cliffs. At approximately 7:45pm we will arrive back in London.

Highly recommend for both solo traveler's and families. This was by far the best tour while visiting England. We were blessed with sunny/ warm weather. Glastonbury was a wonderful stop for shopping and vegetarian lunch with tea. Climbing the Tor was steep and not an easy climb but well worth it when you get to the top. Cheddar Gorge offers a climb and underground cave tour Price not included with tour but well worth the look if you mention the tour group at the cashier you get a discount. The tour guide was super helpful and friendly. The bus is a new Mercedes Benz van with clean seats and climate control too. If I went back to England I'd do more tours with this group. Professional, easy going and well managed.

Loved Glastonbury Abbey, a beautiful and peaceful site. Dont climb up to the Tor if you're afraid of heights, some parts of the path are very narrow and have no rails wish someone had told me before.
Cheddar Gorge is also brilliant if you like nature walks and cave-exploring and cheese, of course.
Overall an amazing trip.

This was the worst tour I have ever taken. I was looking forward to Glastonbury and to a narrative from the guide. He was nodding off for a large majority of the tour, and there was very little information shared. We were given tickets to the abbey and let loose. There was very little time allocated in Galstonbury and WAY too much time in Chedder Gorge so ruined both for all. To top it all, the bus broke down and ended up getting back to London by 9:30 at night. It was awful and I would not recommend this tour to anyone.
