What could be more quintessentially English than Shakespeare's birthplace, the honeyed stone of the Cotswolds and the dreaming spires of Oxford? This tour covers them all, and with a bonus - the journey. Our departure from London was a guided tour in itself with lots of information and some interesting trivia to boot. (Our guide Chris was a treasure house... More

We did the English Bus-Day Tour of Stonehenge and Bath last November- amazing experience. The tour guide was extremely enthusiastic and enjoys what he does. He also recommended to us The West Cornwall Pasty Company in Bath which was delicious! The only (minor) complaints about the trip was that Bath was a bit rushed. Understandably, we were running out of... More

Chris was a wonderful tour guide on our trip to Stratford, the Cotswolds, and Oxford. As he said, we got to see more of England in a day than most Londoners see in a year. Chris was very knowledgable about each stop and the drive through the Cotswolds was so picturesque. While I only had one day to do much... More

Chris and Nick picked us all up at the Kennington underground station and handed us the best-guided day we had on our entire trip. The small bus (16 passengers) was a perfect size for a day's touring and the information, narrative, answers to questions and enthusiasm from The English Bus crew made a long day seem very short. Very good... More

With only 4 days in London, we were not sure that a full day on a small bus was a good way to spend one quarter of our precious time. It turned out to be a great decision! From the moment we got on the bus, the tour began and Chris made sure that we knew about all of the... More

Amazing tour with a fantastic, funny, and knowledgeable tour guide. Chris was our guide for the day, he was a great guide providing us with a vast array of fun facts on just about any subject we could think of. Definitely not your typical boring tour guide here. Bath and Stonehenge were simply breathe taking, sights I will likely never... More

We recently went on the Stonehenge, Bath, and secret place day tour with Chris as our tour guide. We had a full bus with 16 people, but it wasn't too small and not too big of a group. He was such a great guide and was very knowledgable about the history (which my husband loved since he's a huge history... More

We recently took a tour to Bath & Stonehenge with Chris. He shared the right amount of information with us and also did a good job of reading his group as to when it was time to let us take a break and snooze. We hit terrible traffic on the way to Stonehenge and actually could not visit the sight... More

I went for the (1) Bath, Stonehenge and a Secret Place (2) Bruges, Belgium and (3) Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cotswolds Villages tours with the English Bus and Chris happened to be the guide on all three occasions (think there is one other guide). Chris was excellent, excellent and excellent (just to show how consistently good he is for all three... More

My boyfriend and I went on the Stonehenge and Bath tour with Andrew in January, and it was great! There were about 10 other people in our small group, and Andrew kept us entertained all day. We went to Stonehenge first, where we were given two hours or so just to roam around ourselves before we headed to Bath. We... More
