The purple mini bus was on time and the driver (sorry I forget his name) was very friendly. The journey takes about an hour from Bath to Stonehenge. The driver would normally try and fast track you onto transport, however, as most of the bus needed the toilet he took my daughter and I straight to the normal line to... More

Overall, we were very pleased with our visit to Stonehenge. Our guide was pleasant and entertaining. He pointed out a number of interesting sights on the journey to Stonehenge, but mostly let us relax quietly on the ride back. The group was a very reasonable size--only 20 people or so--and our visit was organized efficiently. We got tickets and audio... More

Honestly, visiting Stonehenge isn't cheap, so you have to plan wisely. By that, Scarper Tours is awesome which provide return transport from Bath to Stonehenge Visitor Centre. Along the journey, description is given to any popular sights and everything is organised. What you need to do is simply chilling and taking photographs. We even received a 10% discount card for...

A good sized bus takes (25 at a guess) passengers to see the amazing Stonehenge. Sights are pointed out along the way and everything is organised so that when you arrive you have entry, audio guide and are given the time to explore. If anything we would have like more time so we could have walked around the sight further.... More

Nice comfortable ride with the guide pointing out areas of interest along the way. Groups are not too large. Was given enough time to view Stonehenge and the visitor centre

Joined this bus service from Bath to the Stonehenge. Nice little operator with a great driver/tour guide/narrator who provided great information about the scenes enroute and all information required. Highly recommended if you are intending to visit the Stonehenge from Bath

But a very good one! Excellent way to get to Stonehenge and back. The driver was very personable and provided little pieces of information along the way. Bus is comfortable and clean. Peter Gabriel on the ride home was a nice touch. Recommended!

I would really recommend you to visit Stonehenge but not before reading about it. There's is so much history and mystery to it. If short on time and relying on public transport club it with Bath city and book scarper tour for yourself. We reached bath at 9 roam around bath till 1 and took this tour till 4pm. Its... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Stonehenge with Scarper Tours. It was easy to book online; well-organised; on time; a comfortable ride; and included great commentary from the friendly bus driver! Recommended.
