There will also be some free time to explore and relax at your leisure.
"Beautiful", "Stunning", "My image of England".There are many words and phrases used to describe Bath - all very positive. This UNESCO World Heritage city has so much to offer - amazing architecture, peaceful parks, cool bars, pubs and cafes and a rich historical heritage.
First made famous by the Romans 2000 years ago who built the first baths - Bath as we see it today has been one of the most desirable destinations for the British upper classes for the last 300 years and you'll see why!
A world famous ancient stone circle. This 5000 year old site is a "must see" and arguably one of the world's most important prehistoric sites, certainly one of Britain's most popular attractions.
A mystical place and a reminder of lost civilisations from a time before history. A stone circle built with perfect precision and with stones weighing up to 50 tonnes, some from 200km away, all without modern machines or technology.
There are so many theories about why Stonehenge was built, but no one can be sure. What do you think?
For every tour we depart from the same place – opposite the London Eye, near the corner of Belvedere Road and Chicheley Street, Waterloo – SE1 7BP. Please see the departure point page for more information.
After we meet, we'll introduce ourselves, your driver/guide will explain the plan for the day and we'll start driving through London and out towards Stonehenge with a quick toilet/coffee stop on the way.
Before we arrive at Stonehenge, we'll discuss the mysterious stone circle in preparation for our arrival, so you have a good understanding before we see those mysterious stones. On arrival we'll enter the site (optional) where you will receive a free audio-guide to narrate the history of the site as you walk around the stones.
There will be plenty of time to get some wonderful pictures, listen to the audio-guide and visit the gift shop and the new Stonehenge visitor centre. Your guide will be very interested to hear what you thought about Stonehenge and will be on hand to answer questions and tell you some of the more weird and wonderful stories you wouldn't otherwise have heard about.
It is approximately a 1 hour drive through the English countryside to Bath. We'll drive through some classic English villages where your driver/guide will show you some traditional houses and talk about English country life.
On arriving in Bath we'll drop you off near the centre with some recommendations on where to have lunch (at your own expense). Perhaps you might choose a typical English pub or cafe for lunch, or a quick and tasty pasty, a special type of local pie, perhaps washed down with a glass of the famous local cider? After lunch we offer a guided tour (part walking, part driving) around the city to show you the best bits of Bath - talk about life in Bath and its long and interesting history! Following the guided tour, you'll have plenty of time to explore for yourself, do some shopping or sit down and soak in the peaceful atmosphere!
We'll leave Bath and drive back towards London. On our return we will stop at a secret place. We can't tell you where or when because it is secret. BUT we PROMISE you will love it!!
At approximately 8.15-8.30pm we will arrive back in central London and we will drop you at the most convenient place possible in zone 1 after a great day!
