Our guide was Nick, and I can't say enough about how he contributed to the whole experience. He was probably the best tour guide that I have ever had. I also highly recommend this small group tour to the large bus tours. It is so much more personal and you actually get acquainted with your fellow travelers. We talked and... More

We read all of the reviews on trip advisor so decided to give this a try. We went on the tour to Stratford-Upon- Avon, the Cotswolds and Oxford. The bus holds 16 people and we were full. They tell you they don't wait for anyone so most people on our tour were at the meeting place in plenty of time,... More

I would highly recommend the English Bus tours to anyone visiting London. We did 2 different tours on our visit and they were both excellent. Nick and Chris are very personable and knowledgeable about the attractions we saw. The secret place was a delightful find! We were able to cover a lot of ground on these tours, and saw more... More

The tour was wonderful :) Nick took us to Bath then Stonehenge last August 21. The secret place was also quite nice but since it's a secret, you just have to find out for yourselves. :) The food recommendation at Bath was also good. Skip the water tasting part though (It is optional). It was drizzling a bit when we... More

We went to Stonehenge, Bath, and the Secret Place with Chris. This was an absolutely amazing tour. All of the positive reviews are right. We are a family of 5 (kids ages 12, 15, and 17). Chris did a great job talking to each of the kids and keeping them interested. He made a point to comment on my 12... More

All around fabulous tour! Well organized, comprehensive and an energetic, entertaining and informative tour guide. Nick took us to Bath and Stonehenge, pointing out many interesting sights along the way. He has a comprehensive knowledge of local history and trivia and a gift for story telling.

We took two tours with the English Bus – one to Bath/Stonehenge and one to Stratford/Oxford both with Chris. He is an awesome guide who is very knowledgeable in UK history and many other subjects. The bus is also very new and comfortable, felt very safe in it. Also very convenient meeting place in the morning as well. I totally... More

After reading the rave reviews on Tripadvisor about this tour company, I was lucky enough to get seats on this day trip from London for my family of four. Chris was well-organized, funny and very knowledgable about all three areas. The fact that the new tour bus seated exactly 16 allowed us to go on the winding back roads of... More
