This day tour is a great way to experience some of the must-see attractions that are located outside of Bath. After being collected from Bath you will be driven through the English countryside to reach the city of Wells, England's smallest city. The city is home to a magnificent cathedral that dates back to the 13th Century. During your private walking tour of the city you will visit the Cathedral where you can also see one of the world's oldest working clocks.

Depending upon activity at the factory you may have the opportunity to see employees making the cheese.

It's a long drive to Glastonbury but the tour guide kept providing us information along the way so when we got to the place we understood the culture of the place, the essence so well captured during the journey. For a day trip it takes long to get to the place but it's really enjoyable. Also cheddar Gorge was a surprise and absolutely loved the experience and later buying cheese from where it's originally made.

Very nice trip !!!

I really liked the excursion, I recommend it to everyone. Joni's guide told a lot of interesting things and took him to interesting places in Glastonbury. It was comfortable and the first time we returned not tired from the tour, which lasted 12 hours. I recommend to everyone. Glastonbury is an unusual and mythical place, you should definitely visit there.

It was great!

I loved it was a dream come true! I dreamed of going to Glastonbury and finally it was! Excellent transport! A very wise, friendly and fun guide! In addition, we were able to pass through places we did not expect to go! We saw Stonehenge and Wells! Excellent!

This was a great trip with a professional driver. He came on time, provided us a lot of information about the places we visited. All went very well, nice weather, beautiful places, enough time to enjoy. I will definitely book again!
