“English Bus to Stonehenge and Bath was wonderful - Chris and his van William”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

The three of us, including 19-year old son, all loved the tour. Chris (our tour guide) did a great job of explaining what we would be seeing on the way to various places. My husband chose to sit up front with Chris and I sat just behind so we had a great conversation about living in London and the differences with the United States. Stonehenge and Bath were great. We walked around Stonehenge and met Chis on the far side were he explained a lot of history that wasn’t on the Stonehenge audio tour. In Bath he took us up to some of the more exclusive neighborhoods and told us stories about the row houses there. I loved the fact that we were such a small group. Chris also recommended a pasty from the Pasty Presto shop. Turns out the pasties and dessert from Pasty Presto won best food for our entire Europe trip. The secret surprises didn’t disappoint. One of the highlights of our trip

“The English Bus is a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

If you're thinking of visiting Stonehenge and Bath while in England, then you must hop on the English Bus. It's intimate (max. 16 people) and interesting the whole time thanks to driver and guide Chris Horsey. He's also very knowledgeable of all the sites...plus he took us to 2 secret places that were very cool but that I can't speak about or they wouldn't be secret.
Do this tour! It was one of our best days of our week long UK trip.

“WE LOVE CHRIS AND THE ENGLISH BUS!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

The Stonehenge, Bath, and Secret Places tour was amazing! Especially the secret places, they far exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide Chris was extremely fun, and knowledgeable - we learned so much about England and it's culture. Thanks so much Chris for such an unforgettable experience! If we ever find ourselves back in London, we will definately book another tour! It was worth every pound!

“A beautiful day in Brugges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

This tour and any tour that Chris puts together is a must when you are in London.
Chris was very engaging, knowledgeable and took care of the entire group every step of the way.
When we returned through no fault of his - late from our trip,he arranged for taxis for us to get back to our hotels at no cost to us.
I would use no other company as the buses are too big and not the same atmosphere.
Enjoy
