5,000 years ago, the huge 40-tonne stones were dragged from over 280 miles away in Wales. Who built it and why remains a mystery today. Thousands of years later, Stonehenge continues to enthrall the imagination and captivate the heart of every visitor.

    Leaving from the Victoria coach station in the morning for a two hour ride to the village of Bath begins a jam packed day. Tour guide Rob -who is a engineer with special interest in architecture- narrated the history and pointed out the highlights of Bath with a stop downtown for a walkabout and a visit to the cathedral. Some local ice cream was delicious. Then it’s back on the bus in a trip to the Salisbury Cathedral. Here we had tea. The tea is served in a cafeteria style room that is next to the cathedral. After that was done a very informative tour of the cathedral. Of note is that each person got an individual headphone to wear so everyone could hear the narrative without problems.
    The last stop was at Stonehedge for a fascinating visit to this ancient monument. This was crowded. Then back to London. Tour guide Rob is excellent and enhanced this tour maximally. Driver Steve made the ride smooth. Highly recommend.

    The tour guide was great. The tea at the Cathedral was sad. Not enough for everyone to get each type of sandwhich, not enough tea, water was not served until requested. The tickets to the Roman baths in Bath were not included. Luckily there was no line and we were able to purchase the tickets and visit the Roman baths. If there were to be a line, there would not be enough time to visit the baths, since you get only slightly over an hour to spend in Bath.

    Mostly a good trip. Our guide (Patricia) and driver were great. The description is a bit misleading and lead to some confusion with people in the group. The description states that entry in the Bath Abbey is included. What actually happens is you arrive in Bath and have about an hour of "free" time to wander about on your own. At no time in Bath are you being escorted around as part of the tour. You may choose to visit the Abbey if you wish, but entrance is voluntary donations so that's not really part of the tour then is it? If you wish to visit the Roman baths, you will pay for those and an hour is not nearly enough time to view anywhere near all the exhibits.

    It also states that entry into the Lacock Abbey is included, I don't even know what that is as we didn't go to it.

    The Roman baths, the Abbey (we stuck our heads for literally less than 5 minutes), Magna Carta, Stonehenge were all interesting stops. Too much for one day really. We sort of guessed that when we booked, so it wasn't a surprise. A total of about 5 hours on the bus for the day.

    Overall, I'd recommend but go into it knowing it's a whirlwind tour.

    This was a great tour overall; our tour guide Martha was lovely and provided lots of great background for each site, and our bus driver James was terrific - we hit a lot of traffic coming back into London and he was able to get us around most of it.

    As a heads up, this tour leaves from the Victoria Coach Station; it's easy to find, but multiple buses leave from each gate at the same time. It can be very confusing and the waiting area at each gate is very small, so make sure you know what gate you're supposed to be at AND which tour number you are.

    Our tour started 20-30 minutes late because the bus broke down en route to the station. I believe that may have cut our time short in Bath. Make sure you read the fine print - your time in Bath does NOT include a ticket to the Roman Baths. We only had about 1.5 hours there, and wished we had more time to spend at the baths and see the town.

    We had about two hours in Salisbury; the tea was lovely (sandwiches, scones, and desserts) although a bit smaller than others. We spent about 30 minutes at tea and then had about 1.5 hour to tour the Cathedral and see the Magna Carta. We did not have time to tour the town.

    You also get about 1.5 hour at Stonehenge, which is about the right amount of time. Again, we hit major traffic coming back into London and the driver was able to get around most of it. They gave us the option of being dropped off at three different Tube stations, so we could pick the one that was most convenient.

    I think this is a great tour if you're trying to see all three of these places, but our time in Bath felt especially rushed. Just know ahead of time that you'll be limited in how much time you spend in each place and make the decision as to whether you want to split this tour into multiple trips. Overall, a great tour for the value.

    If you only have time for a single day trip out of London, this is a great way to cover a lot of ground and make your drive worth the while. I wish we had been able to spend a bit more time at each place, but we knew that by having three destinations we'd have a shortened time at each. Katia, our guide, was very nice and informative, and it was great to have her cover all of the bookings, tickets, and lunch (tea) reservations. We also thought the earpieces that allow you to listen to the guide without her having to shout are a BRILLIANT way to do a tour. No straining to hear what the guide says! If I had to do it again, I would bring a book since a good chunk of the drive back is on the freeway without much scenery. Overall, I'd highly recommend!

    Great tour guide! Not enough time in Salisbury Cathedral or in Bath...Need more time to really enjoy these places.

  • 19-Oct-2017

    Absolutely Amazing!! The day is jammed packed with the three different stops, but you have enough time at each place to see the highlights and the guides really know what they're talking about and provide interesting and enjoyable insights. If you're a history buff I'd definitely recommend this tour as the Salisbury stop includes a visit to view an original copy of the Magna Carter. We loved Bath and will definitely we returning as we found ourselves wishing we had more time to explore the town.

    After visiting these sites 40 years ago, we decided to do a return tour with the Viator trip. That was a great move for we had a positive experience seeing these now UNESCO sites anew. The bus was very comfortable, the tour guide, Debbie, extremely knowledgable and energetic in sharing the historical facts and behind the scenes stories which all made for a long but well worth it day. Having done some reading and research made the visits much more meaningful. An amazing area for history buffs. Dolores

    The tour guide and driver were wonderful! So informative and friendly. The sites were incredible. The only negative for me was time constraint. Three stops were too much to really take in the sites in more then a superficial way. Traffic was heavy, which is an unpredictable variable. I would choose one or two stops if i had it to do over.
