tours from Penta Hotel in Reading UK

I will be staying at the Penta Hotel in Reading England for 8 days--I am wondering about any day tours I can take from the hotel or very close by. Would you be able to direct me in this endeavor?

I will be there from May 31 to June 8th. Thank You

I think Tilly41 meant that public transport links are so good from Reading that you can reach lots of places by yourself, without the need for a tour.

Yes, places like Bath and Henley on Thames are quite easy to get to from Reading, with a quicker journey than from London.

Jeanne, if you are looking for an organised tour, where is it that you are thinking of visiting?
