Hubby and I were going to drive there ourselves. But after seeing this we're glad we didn't. Chris our driver was very entertaining and pointed out places of interest on the way. He sorted out our tickets when we got there and told us where everything was.. we sat at the back of the bus on the way there and it was so bumpy. We couldn't stop laughing about it.. the only complaint is that the bumps put fake steps on our step counter haha..

The bright purple of the buses and the shirts of the staff made it easy to locate and keep track of them. We used this company for a tour from bath to Stonehenge. The driver was very personable and delivered helpful hints as we went along, including the Uffington White Horse, something I had heard about as a child. He organised our tickets for Stonehenge and clearly advised us on what was to be expected. I would definitely use this company again.

Thanks for the lovely review Toni G.
The purple buses and t-shirts make it very easy for our customers to find us and give us a clear identity so I'm glad you found them useful. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels... Best wishes!

I visited Stonehenge thanks to Scarper Tour and It has been one of the best tour I've ever done. The driver picked us up on perfect time and during the trip that lasts approximately 1 hour he showed and told us interesting things. Once in stonehenge we were provided of audio guide and general info. It's absolutely the best way to visit stonehenge and the price is honest and affordable. Five stars!!!!

Brilliant morning at Stonehenge. Pick up is right outside abbey hotel, so bang in the centre of bath. Really well organised. Recommend highly!

I decided to opt for their Stonehenge trip based on the positive reviews that they have and they didn't disappoint. The purple coloured buses arrived to pick us up outside the Huntsman right on time. Our driver cum guide Chris did a great job of telling about the locations that we passed through and of arranging our tickets and audio guides. The trip is appropriately timed and quite punctual. However the seats of the bus are a bit narrow.
