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!

Excellent tour! Scarper provides a tour to Stonehenge from Bath that is a quick, easy, and hassle-free way to get to and see Stonehenge. Our tour guide, John, was knowledgeable about the area and pointed out many interesting things along the way. This is the BEST way to see this historic site. Highly recommend!

My friends and I wanted to visit Stonehenge when we were in Bath. We stumbled upon the website for Scarper Tours randomly and decided to book a tour with them. It was a great idea. Our tour guide was phenomenal and the price of the tour included access to the visitor center and the stones. We also got free audio... More

We stayed in Bath for one day and were looking for ways to go to Stonehenge ourselves. However, train and bus changes to Stonehenge has scared us off and finally we decided to join a local tour. We've never joined a local tour before and we were extremely lucky to choose Scarper Tours. Their website is very user-friendly, and confirmation... More

My family went to bath for the day, and wanted to get to Stonehenge. We didn't have a car, so looked for an easy ride to get there and back, without wasting too much time. This tour was perfect. The driver and receptionist were very nice. Directions were clear and concise. The bus was very comfortable. The tour guide John... More

These guys really do a good job of making everything easy and efficient. It's simple to book online, arranging both transport and Stonehenge itself all at once. The whole trip takes about 4 hours (just under and hour's drive each way), giving you about 2 hours at the site, which is honestly plenty of time to do the tour, see... More

Very impressed by the high service standards of our driver guide. The bus ride got quite bumpy at times and the seat was a tad small for me, but the guide more than made up for those physical shortcomings with his humor, dedication and professionalism.

If you are interested in going to Stonehenge this tour will get you there and back easily and efficiently. No line ups, a friendly, competent driver who has stories about the surrounding area. I was underwhelmed by Stonehenge itself and would not put it high on a priority list of things to do or see.
