This tour is comfortable, focused, and an effective use of time. The price is reasonable and much more convenient compared to the effort of getting from Bath to Stonehenge on public transportation. Our guide provided useful commentary and clear instructions to keep the group on track. At Stonehenge, the tour group had priority in getting on the shuttles to the... More

Our tour guide, Chris, was fantastic. He was really helpful and personable without being overbearing. Booking through a tour group was a great way to be expedited up to the actual monument, and Scarper tour buses are smaller and more personable. Overall, great experience and would definitely book through Scarper Tours again. And you can't miss the purple bus!

We took Scarper Tours to see Stonehenge. It was a great experience. Most of the buses with other companies were 3-4 times the size. Increasing the chance of having inconsiderate people being late and holding up the bus. John was our driver and he did a great job of pointing things out along the way. I would defiantly recommend them... More

My brother and myself wanted to visit Bath and Stonehenge and only had a Saturday and a Sunday - so half day for this tour was good (even if you're almost spending more time on the bus than at the site itself!), but I think that there should be a full day choice for those that can spend one whole...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, it's great to know that you enjoyed the tour. I'm sorry that you felt that you did not have enough time at the site. We do have a two hour stay at Stonehenge which we have found for the vast majority of people is enough time to explore the monument and... More

The tour was good, the driver was really nice and entertaining, explaining sights along the way. However, we spent way too little time at the actual attraction! There was no option for a full day tour, only half day, which I think is not enough to properly see Stonehenge. Yes, you have time to see the big stone circle, but... More

Stonehenge itself was excellent. Bus however was not. Very hot day, little or no air condition and the bus was sooo cramped. Virtually no commentary from the driver - it was really just like getting a regular bus to a destination and I think we expect a little more from an actual tour. We did several tours on our travels... More

Hi CWriggles, Thanks for your feedback. I'm really sorry you were disappointed with your tour; we're a small company and work hard to make sure everyone has as good a time as possible. Unfortunately on the day you joined us we were diverted from our normal route due to roadworks so your driver/guide was not able to provide his usual... More

We went on a half day tour to Stonehenge using Scarper tours and we were really happy with the whole experience. The bus departed on time and it was clean and comfortable. We were given lots of information about the areas were passing through then when we arrived in Stonehenge we were speedily taken into Stonehenge itself. Scarper tours made... More

Same as everyone visiting England, we were excited to include Stonehenge in our itinerary. Considering London is connected to every important English sight, we thought we might get a tour from there. However, we decided it would be best to go from Bath instead and booked it at Scarper Tours. The meeting point was in front of the Abbey Hotel,... More

Scarper Tours organizes day trips to Stonehenge. Highly recommended. Easy to book. Reasonably priced. You leave in the morning, you're back just after lunch. Perfect amount of time. John (our driver) was wonderful--informative, interesting... Make sure you get this trip in to your itinerary!
