Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We loved this tour! Our guide, Richard, was a delight and very knowledgeable about the area. He provided interesting commentary throughout the tour to help us understand more about the area. It was great to see Stonehenge without any crowds in the off season. We also enjoyed the stop in Lacock. It was fun to see where popular movies and tv shows were filmed and to get a pint. Would recommend this tour to see Stonehenge, a nice view of English countryside and to see an untouched authentic village. A lot packed in for a half day tour!

underwhelming. the places were nice but the trip wasn't very informative. when you're visiting new places, I'd like to learn about their history, significance for the UK, etc. however, the guide said that he is sitting in for someone and didn't offer much information about the areas we're visiting. He merely played the recording of the owner's voice!! I really feel that the trip was not worth the money. Had I known how disappointing it would be, I would have looked for some other company for this trip.

Hi there. Thanks for sending in this feedback. I am confused by this review as we don't have any stand in guides as the team has been with us for many years and sharing their knowledge and understanding of these areas is absolutely key to our tours. The audio recording that give a little extra background to the tours offer a different voice during the day and allow guests to explore independently when we get to each location if they prefer to do this. As it is over 5 months since you took this tour, I'd be really grateful if you could e mail me the particular date so I can find out more about this particular tour and guide. Your day in the Cotswolds does not reflect the high standard that we consistently provide and I offer you my sincere apologies. All Good Wishes Maddy

Absolutely the one of the best tors and tor guides I've ever experienced. We loved the tour, the special things we go to see because the guide has the inside scoop, and the perfectly timed information and spacious opportunities to experiences what we heard about, all in a day. A perfect tour, no hesitations to recommend - 10 stars!

Beautiful and interesting tour. I loved all the beautiful towns we saw and especially the stones. Guide lent me his umbrella while he got soaked; above and beyond the call. 😊

Our guide Andy was fantastic! So genial and knowledgeable. We weren’t sure if we’d enjoy this type of tour, but we didn’t feel rushed at all and would definitely go again.
Loved that we got to Stonehenge right when it opened so we missed the crowds. Andy also told us how to hop the buses to get to the site if we didn’t want to do a hike. Avebury, Lacock and Castle Combe were just wonderful to ramble around.
Props to Maddie and Andy, we loved our tour!

We had an outstanding experience. The tour was well-organized and our guide Gerry was fantastic, very knowledgable about the history, and very warm and funny as well. We got closer to the Stonehenge temple than expected and we were able to walk among the stones of Avebury. It was an excellent tour including the drama of prehistoric monuments, the charm of two Cotswald villages, and the beauty of the rolling green countryside but Gerry made it especially memorable for us. We had such a great rapport--and were surprised and excited to run into him by chance two days later when we were on our own in another village and he was leading another tour. It was great to reconnect for a few moments. We would definitely recommend this tour to others and would consider Mad Max tours in the future.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review and for making Gerry's day - your card is still in pride of place on his fridge! We've worked hard to get the right balance between prehistoric monuments and stunning historical villages and I think you've summed that up beautifully! Wishing you all the Best Maddy

We had an amazing time! Richard was charming, funny, and full of knowledge. Don’t be discouraged by a 9-hour day; everything was timed out perfectly! We were so enthralled by everything we saw that the wonder made the time fly! We’d also recommend grabbing a quick lunch option in Lacock so you don’t miss the walking tour— sometimes the restaurants/pubs can be busy.

We spent the day with Gerry on the full day tour to Stonehenge, Avebury, Cotswold Villages and we had an awesome experience. Seeing Stonehenge was breathtaking and traveling around in the Cotswolds was amazing. Gerry was a great tour director and added in his commentary to give us a more in-depth understanding of the rich heritage of the area. We also loved the stop off for lunch in Lacock National Trust Village. It was definitely a quaint village from centuries past.

Thank you for taking the time to review your day with Mad Max with Gerry as your guide. Tour 1 is our most diverse and comprehensive tour and it sounds like Gerry really helped the area and history come to life. We are lucky to have a local team who love to pass on their knowledge. They love the area and who wouldn't with such ancient and beautiful places to see. Hopefully you might join us again sometime.

The Stonehenge Mad Max tour was an extremely interesting and enjoyable experience. Gerry, the tour operator and guide was a delight! Very welcoming, informative, funny and courteous - nothing was too much trouble. Seeing Stonehenge from a distance was amazing but up close it was breathtaking! The Avebury stones were very interesting - you can walk up and touch them and follow the huge circle of stones. The Cotswalds are just beautiful - a step back into another time. I highly recomend this tour - a lovely day out with everything taken care of for you.

Thank you for the lovely review. Gerry will be delighted that you had a great day with him. its good to visit Avebury after Stonehenge so you can really see the stones up close. We are so lucky to have such picturesque villages close to Bath and are pleased you loved them as much as we do.
