Choose from either a hotel, B&B or a hostel and we will book it for you.

Thanks to Peter after slightly busy London with the greatest pleasure we dipped into the atmosphere of England, well-known by books, where even every simple lawn has its own at least 300 years old history. His emotional, flavored with good portion of English humor stories let us learn a lot about every part of the country which lied on our way and his advice helped us not to stay hungry and to fulfill our knowledge of English culture in all its aspects. We even looked into eyes of the lama unexpectedly appeared from the bushes.
And even despite competitive participants of the traffic in the person of numerous living creatures we felt absolutely safety thanks to professional driving skills of our guide.
Thank you, Peter! Next time will ask questions aloud and not to oneself, we promise :)
As for tour program, it would be great to spend more time in lovely Tavistock and magnificent Glastonbury unlike slightly usual Bath.

We went on the three day tour of the South West on 27th May 2013.
Owen (he can talk for Wales) was our driver and is a very informative and fun guide.
We were on the second bus which at nine guests wasn't full so we were able to spread out.
We were especially lucky with the weather in that it didn't rain much during the day when we were out on the coach and it was lovely at Lulworth Cove.
On day three we went to Glastonbury and were in Bath at about 12.30. I would scrap Glastonbury and head straight to Bath.
We left Bath at 4.30 and due to the weather and traffic it took three hours to get to Victoria. One of the customers suggested that we should have left earlier but although it was rather tiresome being in the traffic I would rather have had that than having less time in Bath.
As Owen said, the traffic is always unpredictable.
I would definitely recommend this tour.

Depart London and travel out through the old kingdom of Wessex to the most famous Neolithic standing stone circle of Stonehenge.
Having explored this mystical place, your tour will continue to the dramatic south Dorset Coast enjoying panoramic views over white sandy beaches and the natural rock arch of Durdle Door. An afternoon here to explore some of the coast before arriving at the historic city of Exeter, which was the most south westerly fortified settlement of the ancient roman empire. You are based here for 2 nights.
Your morning is spent exploring the magnificent wilderness of Dartmoor, the ancient "Clapper Bridge" at Postbridgeand the historic market town of Tavistock, home to Francis Drake.
Return to Exeter in the early afternoon to explore this Roman town, with its underground passages, ancient walls, Royal Albert Memorial museum and its famous 12th century Norman Cathedral. Your second night is spent here.
We are heading to Glastonbury this morning where we will visit Glastonbury Tor. The Tor has been associated with the name Avalon and identified with King Arthur. Climb the Tor for a spectacular view across three counties. In the afternoon we continue to Bath for lunch.
Then there will be time for sightseeing in the town suffused with relics of its Roman past and of course its famous bath. Bath Abbey is also recommended for a visit.
