About

Experience authentic, quintessential England.

Our tours are unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. We create travel experiences; small, personalized, in-depth experiences share with guests a truly local, authentic experience of the local area. 

Collecting our guests from their Bath accommodation, we take groups of no more than eight guests out of Bath and off the beaten track to see the England that locals know, but visitors rarely see.  

Our all-inclusive experiences (entrance fees, food and drink are all included) allow our guests to get away from the tourist throngs and discover the hidden gems, sights and experiences of this amazing region in a manner that is personalized, relaxed and feels like you are travelling with a friend. 

Join us on one of our day tours (or evening country pub dining tours) for a true experience of authentic, quintessential England. Or book a customized tour between November and March. Book online now or give us a call. 

We guarantee your tour with us will be a highlight of your trip or we'll refund you 50% of your tour cost back!
