“Priceless memories at a good price”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

A full day of sightseeing, learning and insight as we went to Bath, Stonehenge and the delightful Secret Spot. Our driver\guide Nick was quite knowledgeable, gracious and entertaining, along with knowing how to cut the red tape. He went beyond the call of duty to save our day and get us on the bus during the rail strike!¡ I wholeheartedly recommend The English Bus.

“Favorite guided tour -- ever”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

Took the tour with Chris as our guide to Bath, Stonehenge and a secret place. From the time he picked us up at a Subway station with only one exit (can't get lost that way!) til he dropped us back a short walk from our hotel, it was obvious he did his homework and loved his job. The Bus was comfortable and held 16 passengers...a very manageable sized group. The stops were well timed, all with opportunity to look around on our own, after some guided walking tour. I especially appreciated the overviews of both Bath and Stonehenge before we arrived so we knew a bit about what to look for while on site. And the "secret place" was great fun anticipating...actually the company evidently has several...and the one he picked for our group was perfect. Definitely recommending to anyone I know who travels to London.

“Excellent Day Trip from London”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Our trip to Stonehenge, Bath and the place-that-will-not-be-mentioned-here was first rate all around. There were no negatives. The small size of the group was perfect. The bus was great. Chris and NIck were our guides and they were personable, knowledgeable and full of key advice/tips to make the most out of our stops in Bath, Stonehenge and the secret place. They pointed out the historical sites, told interesting stories and also recommended the pubs and restaurants to grab a quick pint of ale or cider or a bite to eat(recommend Pasty Pronto in Bath). Even my 12 and 14 year old children said this trip with the English Bus was their favorite part of our 12 day stay in the London area. Go with them and you won't be disappointed.

“Great day out!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

My husband and I booked our tour while on a recent stay in London. We chose this tour because it is much smaller than others, more personal and affordable. I'm so glad we did! We took the Stonehenge and Bath tour which included a stop at a secret place! Sshhh! Our driver Nick was fun and informative...kept us all laughing and interested while telling us all if the facts and history surrounding the places we visited! What a great day out! Thanks Nick!
