“Perfect all day tour Stonehenge, Avebury, Cotswolds and more”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is the perfect tour to provide a relaxed and informative day tour from Bath. Tim was a terrific guide who is well informed, a Bath local and has a sense of humor. My husband, 21 year old daughter and I took the tour this week. I highly recommend it as an effortless way to much of the key sites outside of Bath. The bus was one of the smaller ones so we had a nice size of 15 or so on the trip.

“Take this Tour!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Wonderful experience touring with Mad Max. I don't remember the name of the gentleman but he was very well informed, experience and funny at the same time. It was a very personal experience that i was catered with. We visited the Stonehenge, Avebury and Cotsworld villages. The tour guide also spent a lot of time talking with me adding more of a personal touch approach from the company. I absolutely recommend everyone to take this tour with Mad Max if you are in Bath or anywhere even close.

“Small and Personal Tour”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

We did the Castle Combe, Lacock and Avebury tour with our driver/guide Nick. The tour was done in a 15-seater good quality van.

We deliberately avoided the Stonehenge Tour and went for this shorter tour which took in the Avebury Stones. I'm glad we did - it was a good length tour with a leisurely 11am start (so we got the Roman Baths in first).

The commentary was pointed and low-key, which was how we like it. Nick added a couple of extra things he thought we would like to see (he was right) by taking a slight detour here and there.

All-in-all, if you like good quality, low-key touring without superficial razzmatazz, this is a great choice.

“Great Stonehenge, Avebury, Cotswolds Villages Tour”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Excellent tour company. We booked from the US and had no trouble doing so. The tour was on time, with comfortable vans and enthusiastic guides. We were lucky to have Tim as our tour guide for the day. His cheerful and informative commentary was terrific the entire day, everywhere we visited, with good recommendations on how to get the most out of each place we went. As they promised, we got to Stonehenge just before the majority of the crowds, making our visit efficient and enjoyable. A walk through the Avebury circles, where you can get right up to the stones, was memorable. The villages of Lacock and Castle Combe are so picturesque that pictures can't do them justice. You just have to see them for yourself. Even the drive from sight to sight was an enjoyable trip through the countryside. We would definitely recommend this tour.
