Depart your central London meeting point by air-conditioned coach, and journey out into the leafy English countryside. 

Make your first stop at UNESCO World Heritage-listed Stonehenge, one of the world’s best-known prehistoric monuments. Rising up from Salisbury Plain, this remarkable stone circle dates back some 4,500 years and is generally thought to have been a temple that marked the movements of the sun.

On arrival, head inside the site complex with its visitor center, collect an audio guide, and visit the massive stone circle to experience its size and symmetry close up. Ponder the mysteries that surround the edifice, and learn the theories as to how the stones were transported and then raised here.

Next, continue to the delightful, UNESCO-protected spa city of Bath, famous for its elegant Georgian 18th-century architecture and connections with 18th- and 19th-century novelist Jane Austen. Take a panoramic tour to admire the honey-stoned mansions, terraces, and bridges, and enjoy a little free time to stroll around the cobbled streets at leisure, time permitting.

Back aboard your coach, travel deep into the Cotswolds, a region of rolling hills, green pastures, and stone-built villages that are considered perhaps the loveliest in England. Soak up the gorgeous views of the lush fields honeycombed with dry stone walls, and pass through bustling market towns crowned by impressive churches.

Arrive in the charm-laden town of Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of England’s greatest playwright, William Shakespeare, and home to the famous Royal Shakespeare Company. Take in the half-timbered houses and Avon River that winds through the town. Then, enjoy a visit to Shakespeare's Schoolroom before strolling around Stratford’s quaint center.

When your visit to Stratford ends, return to your coach and drive back to London where your tour concludes.

A magical day with Premium Tours

It was a fabulous day. We saw a lot of great places. Despite being behind in time due to a road accident along the way, the staff ensured we got the most out of the tour. A great day! Thankyou, Warren and Samantha Sydney Australia

Our driver, Alfred was friendly and deft. He got us to our destinations safely and on time. Our tour guide, a Anna Marija was personable and very knowledgeable. She made it a point to be sure every passenger knew what was happening and was comfortable every step of the way.

Whirlwind indeed
SUSAN_M
, Aug 2022
It was indeed a whirlwind. Don’t drink anything because there was barely time for bathroom breaks. You will be on the bus for at least 75% of this trip. Don’t be late. One couple was 8 minutes late and was left at Stonehenge. If you want to see the Roman Bath book that ticket in advance. This is good if you want to check off seeing a lot of things but won’t get a chance to truly experience it. Not all buses in this tour company have charging stations. If you enjoy looonnnggg rides and listening to other people snore this is the tour for you.

Whirlwind visit!
ErinNoel_M
, Jul 2022
This was a whirlwind visit to these major sites outside of London. There is not much time in each location, so if you are expecting something more in-depth, this is not the best choice. It is a long day of touring, but our guide, Omar, was knowledgeable and used time in-between stops to inform us of history and important info so that once we got to the sites we had as much time as possible. Our guide did not stay with the group at the various sites (he went off and did his own thing).

Excellent tour. Guide was excellent. We were able to see Stonehenge, beautiful Bath (where Netflix is filming “Bridgeton”), and Stratford on Avon, with an outstanding tour of Shakespeare’s school and birthplace. Long day of travel on bus, from 8 am to 8 pm, but worth it.

Well led and managed day
Cecilia_M

This was a great way to see a lot of England in one day. Each of the stops was remarkable in their own way and felt like a valuable experience. There is a LOT of driving—about 8 hours in the bus. During that time our guide provided information and opportunities to relax. Very well led and managed tour.

The boarding process was chaos, the tour really lacked color and information in general, and the bus driver was scary - very aggressive, a lot of honking and hard braking.

Disappointing
Kate_J
, Jul 2022
While Stonehenge and Bath were both well worth the visit unfortunately the rest of our experience was poor. The Conversations with the tour guide were lost in translation, the Cotswolds were never even mentioned and by the time we arrived in Stratford-upon-Avon everything was closed outside the schoolroom. Disappointingly I was most looking forward to this part of the trip. On top of this there were people on the bus who were loud and exchanging expletives with others on the bus. These same people returned to the incorrect collection point in Stratford which meant we were late and the bus driver who had ticked over 12hours for the day had to drop us in a random location leaving us to find our own way back to home ports. I would not recommend this trip based on my experience. I would suggest limiting yourself to Stonehenge and Bath rather than the extras

There is too much time at Stonehenge and not enough time at the other sites. Would like to have spent more time site seeing and less time on the bus.

Zozo was absolutely amazing! We zipped around England and saw all the far away from London things we wanted to see in one (long) day. And he not only gave us facts about where we went but also on the bus as we passed important and cool places. He is an encyclopedia of history. And our driver Eddie was THE BEST!!! We LOVED it, highly recommend.

This is a wonderful way to see a great deal of the country. The guide was very knowledgeable and the driver did an excellent job as well. I highly recommend this tour.
