I felt the tour guide (Eric) was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, pleasant and kept us on track. The bus driver was excellent as well. Most of us on the tour only wished that we could have started out earlier as we had the sunset tour at Stonehedge and felt as if we didn't have enough time once arriving there. Our dinner was at LaCock at 6:30, which was dark so we weren't able to see the village - somewhat disappointing. Other than that it was wonderful.Reviewed by: Patricia M, March 2014
This was the most amazing part of our vacation. Our guide, James, was so perfect. Right down to his bowler hat. The trip was informative and the Roman Baths and lunch at the George were great but what made it one of a kind was being able to step inside the circle at Stonehenge. I was walking where people walked 5000 years ago and where very few people can walk today. Truly a once in a lifetime adventure.Reviewed by: Tina M, November 2013
Our guide David was really knowledgeable and you could tell he loved what he did. There was a lot of driving on this trip but its a beautiful view along the way. Bath was such a beautiful town as was Lacock and the pub that we had lunch in was small but they handled the size of our group so well as well as having delicious food. we then went onto Stonehenge and although the shop is closed by the time we got there, to have it all to ourselves was so worth it! I booked in Feb for a trip in Aug, you really do need to book early! Getting to wander through the stones instead of just around meters away from it as well as not having to fight crowds makes it an amazing experience.Reviewed by: Sarah P, November 2013
Great tour very knowledgeable and friendly guide. The private viewing of Stonehenge is the only way to view and understand this site. At the end of the day it all comes down to the guide. I have done this tour twice and both experiences were fabulous. Would definitely recommend.Reviewed by: Denise, October 2013
I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of Stonehenge, Lacock and Bath. Our tour guide, David, was very British and quite amusing and kept us entertained all day. Abdul, our driver, was amazing! He took that large bus into crowded streets, alleyways and between parked cars and trucks. I felt very safe in his hands.
Our first stop, Stonehenge, was very atmospheric despite the fact that they are digging up all around the site to improve facilities. It felt very weird standing among the stones, knowing the mystery surrounding their origins, and feeling dwarfed by the stones themselves. Yes, they are BIG. The local "guardian" (security officer) of the stones was also very helpful in pointing out names carved into the stones e.g. Christopher Wren, who designed St Pauls Cathedral after visiting the stones. The gift shop was opened for us, but beware if you are buying a poster of Stonehenge not to rely on the labels on the individual post packs - I thought I was buying "Moon over Stonehenge" which is very atmospheric, but the poster inside was Stonehenge at Sunrise, which is not as riveting.
Our next stop at Lacock was perhaps a little long, but the place was very quaint and the 12th century inn where we had a nice breakfast was quite intriguing. The fact that Harry Potter and Cranford were made here was icing on the cake, as they are both on my Top Ten List.
Bath was last on our schedule, and as it took some time to get through the Baths, we had only 45 minutes to check out the rest. We grabbed a cab and he took us to the hill above Bath - a truly lovely view - and we did get to see some lovely Georgian architecture.
The trip back to London was uneventful, David kept us amused with anecdotes and arranged for us to be dropped off as close as possible to our hotels. Overall, the tour was well run, well driven and good value for money.
