Everyone should take the Scarper Tours trip out to Stonehenge from Bath. The tour only takes 3 hours, and you're left wanting more - a very amusing driver/guide, lots of information - and even more if you ask questions, so nice to hear a locals...More

This tour was an unexpected treat. We had planned to rent a car in Bath and drive ourselves out to the site. When the car hire completely fell through, we took a chance on a local tour - not usually our style - and we're...More

An effortless, easy way to see Stonehenge. The price for transport, tour and admission is all included which makes this the best value for money. You're on a bus but the money you arrive you have 2 hours to do with as you please. The...More

The tour was well organised and easy for us to book, hop on and hop off. Didn't have to think about tickets or where to go they made it super easy for us. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful.

Dan was a friendly and efficient driver and guide. He left on time both from Bath and at Stonehenge. It was easy to find the distinctive purple bus, and the seats were comfy. Some guests had luggage, which Dan stowed in a trunk! Highly recommend...More

This was fantastic, easy, and reasonably priced! Jon (our driver) was wonderful and pointed out neat landmarks/places of note on the beautiful ride to Stonehenge. The shuttle was so convenient as we didn't rent cars and traveling from Bath was beautiful and a relatively short...More

The coach driver was brilliant and engaging both on the way to Stonhenge and the way back. It helped that the day brightened up but I enjoyed the trip both ways. I would definitely recommend this company
