We selected The English Bus based on the reviews, and the actual trip more than lived up the reputation! Our guide was Andy. His depth of knowledge of the history of all the places we visited right from the city through the entire tour was remarkable. The bus itself was really comfortable, and the schedule was paced well, considering there are so many things packed into a single day.

The only suggestion for TEB is to improve the positioning of the microphone for the guide while driving. The volume is ok, but it only works when the guide turns towards the mic. People at the back of the bus can barely hear the voice and we had to strain a bit.

We loved our tour of Stratford Upon Avon, the Cotswolds and Oxford. Andrew was a fun and informative guide. I highly recommend The English Bus tour company, I wouldn't hesitate to book another tour with them when we are back in the UK.

Just a spectacular, wonderful day tour with Johnny as our tour guide. Easy central meeting point. Comfortable van just right for small group. Interesting commentary on all the London sites as we were leaving town. Enjoyed the gorgeous countryside and walking around the Secret Place, which will definitely remain a secret! Johnny had many interesting tales about Bath and there was plenty of time to explore, eat lunch, and take a short, narrated walking tour with Johnny. Back on bus to Stonehenge, Johnny shared his amazing knowledge of the world heritage site. He made sure we got our tickets, audio guides and knew how to get the best experience at Stonehenge. On the way back, Johnny shared the many opinions of the hows and whys of Stonehenge. We also got great advice on sites for the rest of our London stay. Many thanks to this great company and to Johnny!

Cannot say enough good things about this tour and particularly our guide, Andrew. Andrew was funny, with a depth of knowledge about the local sights and a passion for the history as well. We were offered bottle water all day and upon our return everyone on the bus was dropped off near where they were staying. First class treatment all around. If I had one suggestion, it was to have one more hour in Bath. But very appreciated that we arrived near closing at Stonehenge and the crowds were very thin. This tour was the highpoint of our stay in London. Wish we could do this company's other tours as well.

We are a family of three from NY. We had a great time touring Stonehenge, Bath, and secret place in May , 2017 with Johny
He is absolutely fantastic, amazingly knowledgable in many areas, a great sense of humor. and very attentive to the customers.
The group was small , the Mercedes Benz Van was very comfortable.
We like it so much that we recommended to our friends who are going to London this summer
Thank you , Johny and English bus, for such a wonderful day. It will stay in our mind for a long time.
