We left spot on time, it was a comfortable ride (just under an hour) and the Driver/tour guide was both informative and very pleasant. They do everything for you, even getting the audio guides and bringing them to the bus with the tickets. It goes without saying that Stonehenge was amazing, we were in awe! Scarper tours gives you 2 hours to visit the attraction which is more than provided by most operators and more than enough time for most people but we could have stayed for much longer. So much to see and absorb. I would definitely recommend these guys.

I chose this tour because it seemed to give us the most time at the stones, but it wasn't enough. I didn't even get into the museum. The tour guide was informative and helpful. I enjoyed seeing the chalk horse and seeing and then driving across Pultney Bridge. Maybe they could offer a longer tour for those of us who want more time at the site.

Thanks for your review and kind comments. As you say, we are at Stonehenge longer than most other companies and although 2 hours is ample time for the vast majority of our customers, we are sorry to hear that you would have liked longer. Hopefully, you got some great photos and happy memories nonetheless - September is such a beautiful time of year for a visit.
Best wishes from Scarper Tours

They said they'll pick you up at the designated area at 2:00 in Bath, and they were there at 1:50 with clipboard to check you off the list. They left on time and had some lovely commentary when applicable on the 70 minute bus ride to Stonehenge. They give you a good 2 hours to take in the sight (s) of Stonehenge and then bring you right back to where your started, in this case at 6:00 PM. I highly recommend visiting Stonehenge especially if you are visiting Bath and I HIGHLY recommend Scarper Tours!

The tour was excellent. Our guide, John, was great at explaining everything about Stonehenge and during the tour. The tours are organised in small comfy buses, which makes it better for hearing the explanations. The two hours at Stonehenge were good because less than that time makes it difficult to see everything, and take pictures.
