Josefina, Ultimate Great Britain Experience

30th of May, 2017

It was our first time on a Lets Travel tour. Our travel guide Anna was a super star. Knowledge about the places where we visited and detail on local culture went beyond a guide book and was magnificent - particularity her knowledge in the Highlands of Scotland. Anna also really made the effort to get to know everyone which made for a fun and eventful journey. We definitely would come back for another tour run by Lets Travel.

Explore the mythical standing stones, the Neolithic Houses and the fascinating exhibition which is home to over 250 ancient objects and treasures, including jewellery, pottery and tools. Witness the iconic Neolithic stone structure of the Standing Stones and gaze in awe at the capabilities of our ancestors. Stonehenge is one of the oldest prehistoric sites in Europe and is also a UN World Heritage Site. The site was first started in 3100BC and was in use until 300AD, almost 3500 years. We leave Stonehenge and travel through the counties of England onwards to London where this tour ends.

Day 8 - Roman Baths Entrance

Bath is a beautiful Georgian city with delightful crescents, terraces and architecture. Following our panoramic tour of the city, there will be time to visit Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge overlooking the river Avon cascading over the weir. And you can shop, explore or take afternoon tea in the Pump Rooms while listening to the string quartet.


The entrance ticket includes entrance to the Roman Baths that were built nearly 2,000 years ago. Built on Britain's only natural hot water spring lies the magnificent Roman public bath complex and Roman temple. At the heart of the World Heritage Site you can walk around the steaming pool on the Roman stone paving and admire the ancient Roman statues and architecture.

Josefina, Ultimate Great Britain Experience

30th of May,2017

It was our first time on a Lets Travel tour. Our travel guide Anna was a super star. Knowledge about the places where we visited and detail on local culture went beyond a guide book and was magnificent - particularity her knowledge in the Highlands of Scotland. Anna also really made the effort to get to know everyone which made for a fun and eventful journey. We definitely would come back for another tour run by Lets Travel.
