What a fantastic day! Daniel has to be the best tour guide in the South West. His approach to history wrapped up in narratives both mythic and relatable makes for a truly memorable and engaging experience. His two UNESCO Heritage sites in one day guided tour is the perfect way to spend the day when visiting this beautiful part of the country.
After collecting us from our accommodation, Daniel drove us to a breathtaking vista of Bath. We then explored this beautiful city taking in the main sites, including Bath Abbey, Roman Baths, Royal Crescent, The Circus and many more. Having an exceptionally knowledgeable and local guide deepened our appreciation for Bath.
Then onward to our second UNESCO heritage site - Stonehenge! What a magical place! Before even seeing the stone circle, Daniel brings the history of the site to life. His enthusiasm for the mystery and history surrounding Stonehenge adds a dimension to seeing the stones that one does not appreciate without such a guide.
If you are planning to see Bath, Stonehenge, or indeed any location of geological or historical importance in the South West - contact Daniel you will not be disappointed.
