Terrific trip from start to finish! Everything was well organized and, our guide, Ben, struck the perfect balance between providing excellent information and delivering the corniest (but highly entertaining) jokes to keep us entertained and engaged. And some of his jokes were at the expense of Choi, the wonderful driver who, as an American, I don't know how he managed to weave that tour bus while driving on the wrong side of the road! (I couldn't resist!) Seriously, the day was wonderful, relaxing and a just a wonderful way to get to see an amazing part of Great Britain.

Wonderful trip, Carol our guide gave just the right amount of information-we really enjoyed it! If I did it again, I would have eliminated the Lacock village portion. The Pub lunch was fun, but we didn’t really have time to see much of the little town. I would therefore preferred more time in Bath, it was magical and so beautiful all decorated for Christmas.

Done the city tour, doesn’t take too long, well worth a go. Nice to see around so you know where to go back too.

Enjoyable day trip. The guide from golden tours Bruce is AMAZING! Very knowledgeable and informative.

Bruce was amazing , great sense of humor, took good care of us .. Elvio was a great driver.
