The tour was fabulous and our tour guide Johny was amazing and fun! He gave us so much background knowledge and was a book of facts about each site! He took the time to ask a few questions about each of us, learned our names, and engaged us in conversation! Will definitely book a trip again with The English Bus crew! Highly recommend!

Travelling on my own and first time visitor to these sites, Tony instantly put me at ease. This is a fellow who loves his work, enjoys meeting people and is an exceptionally generous host. He provided wonderful commentary throughout the tour, and the organisation and time at each site was a great blend of free time, or meet with the group to explore together. These are ‘must see’ sites and the secret place was gorgeous. I went in to the Roman Baths - fascinating and very metallic tasting, hot spring waters take you on a journey through time. I loved this trip, I like the experience of a smaller group and Tony having time with each of the group to talk through any questions. Gorgeous locations that have inspired me to come back for a much longer visit. I was not sure which tour to pick, but the smaller group and care factor of this team wins out. Thank you!

Tony and Andy were wonderful in their presentations and care they took in providing a great experience. We had structure combined with the right amount of free time to explore on our own. We were sworn to secrecy… the surprise stop was amazing! Thank you for a great day of memories.

Great tour that is well worth the time and money. Not only is each location beautiful in its own right but the tour guide does a great job of connecting the historical significance of each location. The right combination of relaxation, learning, and fun.

This tour was so much fun. The bus was so comfortable and it was easy to see the sights while driving. We also loved our guide, Chris. He was so engaging and provided wonderful information about the sights. The entire trip was very well planned and one I would highly recommend. We had such a great day with Chris and appreciated the great care he gave us. We were a group of mothers/daughters traveling together and the memories we made are truly priceless.
