“Very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

After you have seen London and you want to get out of town this tour is a good choice. We went to Stonehenge etc. tour and we saw so much in the day. We learnt a lot and got a good feel of the areas visited. Nice to see the English countryside. Very good choice to suit our desires.

“Bath Stonehenge and secret place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

What can I say other than fantastic. It was pouring with rain during our visit to Stonehenge but Chris had spare umbrellas for all. The new exhibition area had just opened so a few teething problems there but at no fault to Chris. Pick up was so easy and Chris was excellent at dropping most of us off near where we were staying. A small bus of us so it was easy to park and get around and despite not being a coach was very comfortable. Secret place - well I wont say anything except it was after dark and Chris had torches to share around too. Excellent day out despite the rain.

“Highlight of my trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I took the Stonehenge, Bath and Secret Places tour in November 2013 with Andrew. He had an excellent sense of humor which helped make the tour a complete delight as I was traveling by myself. Due to the time of year (November after Daylight Savings Time), we visited the Secret Places after the sun had set. While some seemed to grumble about this - Andrew still managed to create a positive atmosphere and entertained us as we had our nighttime adventure to the Secret Places. It was a great, laid back, small group tour with a local guide - which is exactly what I wanted. If you're picky about seeing everything in the daylight, then you'll need to make sure you plan your trip during a time of year when the days are longer. I highly recommend this tour group - and look forward to possibly booking a different tour with them in the future!

“Highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We took the Stonehenge, Bath and Secret Place tour with Chris and Andrew. They were both great guides - knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining, and patient with our endless stream of questions. The staff who booked our tour was friendly, welcoming and very prompt with answering our questions about the tour. We really liked being in a small group and dealing with a small business. This day tour is longer than some of the others, but Chris and Andrew set the day up for us right at the start and kept us apprised of when and where to eat and use the bathrooms. It was well paced with times to listen and learn, times to be quiet, times for guided touring and times to wander on our own. At the end of the day, we were surprised to find that we were not at all exhausted, but rather pleasantly tired and delighted with all that we had seen and learned.

“Worth it!”

Wanted a stress free day trip out of London so looked for someone else to do the driving. This was it! Great fun, great service.
