I believe that most tours do not include Bath and Stonehenge in a package, and if it does, the tour comes from London. We were travelling from Heathrow to Bath by train, and we wanted to see Stonehenge too. we booked online, and the response to confirm the availability of the tour was immediate. The ride was comfortable, and our guide pointed out the sites along the way. Thank you very much for that wonderful experiences Scarper Tours !

My two friends and I took the tour from Bath to Stonehenge and it was great! The driver, I think his name was John, was very knowledgeable and personable. He was funny! The bus drive was a bit bumpy in some places but he gave us a fair warning and we were also sitting in the back. We had plenty of time at Stonehenge to walk around and listen to the whole audio tour and the driver even bought our tickets as a group so that we could bypass the line and go straight in. Not only did we get a tour of Stonehenge, we got a tour of the surrounding areas that we drove through. It was a great tour and I would definitely recommend it!

My husband and I had a great experience with Scarper Tours on our recent day trip to Stonehenge. What we loved best was the personal experience that can only be achieved with a small group of travelers. Booking was easy and there was no problem accommodating our desired date and time. On the day of the excursion, the purple bus was full but we were all seated comfortably. The weather wasn't ideal, but our guide Dan kept us entertained with scenic highlights along the windy journey from Bath to Stonehenge. Entry to Stonehenge was flawless and, although there was a long queue, we were able to walk straight into the site.

Overall, it was a lovely experience and I would definitely recommend Scarper Tours to anyone looking for a fun side trip to this historical landmark!

If you want to get to Stonehenge and back this is a great way to do it. Reservation was a breeze with a quick response and at the time of the tour the bus arrived exactly when and where it was supposed to. The schedule is basically an hour to get there, an hour spent there, and an hour back. Everything was right on schedule which was important since we had other things planned for our day visit to Bath.

Along the way the driver points out some things along the way. It wasn't anything spectacular but still a nice addition to the drive. Having the driver get the tickets to enter Stonehenge made it quick and easy for everyone to get in when we arrived without having to spend time in lines or making the purchases individually.

I found it to be a good value for getting to Stonehenge and back in a simple and efficient way. I think you would be hard pressed to find transportation there and back for less than this tour costs and they proved to be very reliable and friendly.

Do remember that the driver can only take cash. We had forgotten since we booked months in advance, but luckily we had enough with us. In either case, apparently there is an ATM to get cash near the pickup spot in case you need it.

Scarper Tour is the best way to see Stonehenge as far as we are concerned. The smaller bus, the great guide who talks about the country make the 1/2 day memorable. The tourist stop is OK and didn't last too long. There was time to walk around Stonehenge. The other stops are well planned and valuable. We recommend Scarper Tours heartily. As first time travelers in the UK we relied on them for help, phone and online information. Thanks!
