We had an absolutely lovely time on our tour! Matt, the guide, is a delight and knows so much about the sights you’ll be glad to have him around for you adventure! My partner and I felt that the price was more than fair for such an amazing tour and all the great knowledge we gained about Britain’s history along the way! We will definitely be back again to tour with Roots.

I ended up taking two tours this summer- Stonehenge/ Avebury and Stratford upon Avon/ Cotswolds. Both were guided by Matthew who was brilliant. Such a good storyteller and extremely knowledgeable. I know if I went on my own I wouldn't have enjoyed it half as much since knowing the history is what makes these places come to life. They are long days so bring a podcast or a book for the drive and some snack, but there are rest stops if needed. Cambridge is quite far from a lot of places so you can't avoid that part Both tours were excellent, you had time to explore on your own. Would recommend if you have a full day and want to explore the UK from Cambridge.

I strongly recommend travelling with "Roots"!! All trips are perfectly scheduled and Matt, the driver and most knowledgeable guide, the life and soul of "Roots" in actual fact, is second to none!! Wherever I have been with him, I've had the experience of a lifetime!! He's just incredible!! Excellent driver, superb guide, fantastic person, so very helpful, polite, patient, lively, interesting, with a sense of humour. Matt speaks perfect English, ideal English I would say, and makes a point of engaging the traveller by providing extremely interesting, absolutely to the point information!! He is an essentially educated person and so well-mannered, so well-informed, so considerate that one cannot but recommend him, and take advantage of every opportunity to travel with him again and again and again!!!! Thanks a bunch, Matt!! Look forward to travelling with you again in the near future!! Eleni from Greece.

Matt is an Amazing and knowledgeable tour guide! He is very careful about the anti-pedemic measures along the way and will give us enough break time during the long trip. Also, he introduces every single detail about the historic attraction, the street building, the road sign, and the secrets of the place of interest! The trip is much enjoyable and we have an excellent day during this difficult time! It is absolutely the best trip that I have ever been in and I would recommend to anyone who would love to experience the world!
