As we planned to visit Stonehenge from our base in Bath during our trip to England, a key question was whether to take a train and then taxi, or pick a tour bus operator. We choose Scarper Tours, and we could not have been happier....More

Totally enjoyed our visit to Stonehenge. Driver, John, is personable and knowledgeable. Coach is comfortable. Wish we could have stayed at least another hour. I can tick this off my list now.

Nice drive with tour guide Chris who took us to Stonehenge. It’s an hour drive each way with lovely countryside to see and a bit of commentary on the way. I could have spent 3 hours there instead of 2, because a big tour bus...More

Hi Lori Thanks for taking the time to write a review and I'm sorry to hear that you would have enjoyed a longer visit at Stonehenge. 2 hours is normally the perfect amount of time at Stonehenge (most tourist buses only stay for 90 minutes),...More

Perfect for small groups. Trip starts with a lovely drive to Stonehenge through the Cotswolds, which alone is worth the price, narrated by the driver. Tour is all-inclusive -- travel to the site, tickets to get in, audio tour, and then a ride back. I...More

We recently did the 4 hour trip from Bath to Stonehenge, selecting the afternoon tour due to travel logistics. I wasn't sure how crowded the afternoon would be, but it didn't seem bad at all. When you go to the big pickup area in Bath,...More

There are lots of tours from London to Bath and Stonehenge ... but what if you're already in Bath? Then take the purple bus with Scarper Tours. It's 4 hours total with an hour each way and back, and 2 hours at Stonehenge. That seemed...More

You just book online the previous day and they get you to Stonehenge in an hour, you stay there 2 hours and then back. There are no other stops, but that gives you more time back in Bath to do some sightseeing there. Two hours...More

If you are leaving from Bath it takes about 55 minutes each way, and picks passengers up outside of Abbey Hotel.
