    My wife and I have only the highest ratings for our trip March 2, 2020, with the English Bus small group tour. Our guide Johny was a literal encyclopedia of information on everything from English history to the origins of Stonehenge to recent cultural events of the area. On top of the tremendous scope of his knowledge, he was personable and entertaining. The English Bus is a very comfortable Sprinter Van with all the comforts one could want while enjoying a small group relaxed atmosphere—as opposed to moving around in a large herd. Unlike many tours, the English Bus company allows food and beverages onboard so guests can snack while seeing the sights. We had multiple opportunities to get out and walk, and also to spend time away from the group if we wanted to do something a bit different than others in the group. When we are here again, we definitely will book another tour with the English Bus. Steven and Virginia Amstrup

    Bath has been described as the Monte Carlo and the Las Vegas of Georgian England, and this tour gives you a comfortable morning to explore the city.

    Really loved this small group trip there was only 6 of us and the guide driver Freddie. The vehicle we drove in was spacious and comfortable, which was good, because it is one-and-a-half hours to Stonehenge from Oxford, and getting there early certainly helps as it was not crowded at all, and we went straight up to the Stones after a quick coffee. Our guide Freddie was very knowledgeable,and great fun with some of the stories he told. Then after a quick visit to the souvenir shop and a walk round the the information centre it was back in the the minibus and on to Bath which I think took about an hour. After a quick lunch/shop break of about 45 minutes,our guide Freddie took us on a tour of the best of Bath, again he was very knowledgeable about the city and that took about an hour and a half. Then quick restroom break and back in in the minibus to Oxford which again is about an hour and a half.

    5. London: Stonehenge, Bath, Lacock, & Avebury Small Group Tour

Centuries later, in the 1st century A.D. the Romans arrived, calling this place Aqua Sulis. Even later, during the Georgian Era of the 18th century, the rich and wealthy arrived from London to see and be seen and took to the waters to rid themselves of joint stiffness and gout.  Stop for a break in the delightful village of Lacock.

Absorb the powerful presence of this ancient site and admire the views before continuing on the drive through beautiful Wiltshire and Somerset, passing thatched cottages and idyllic villages en route to the city of Bath.

The only hot thermal springs in Britain were a draw for those early invaders from warmer lands, and the Roman resort of Aqua Sulis can be seen in the Roman Baths Museum. The Georgian elite of London arrived here in the 18th century to take the waters and cure themselves of rheumatic disea...

    Our guide James and driver Choy, we're amazing. Very nice and helpful. My mom is in a wheelchair and Choy constantly helped with getting her up and down the van. James was considerate when picking the walking routes to our destinations. I would definitely want to be a part of there group again. I only wish we'd stayed a little longer in Stonehenge.
