Visit Windsor Castle on the way to the West Country

Make the beautiful Georgian city of Bath your touring base in the West Country

After sightseeing in London, take a rest in the West Country

Welcome

Let a Blue Badge qualified driver guide from West Country Driver Guide Tours show you the fabulous South West of England from the comfort and privacy of your own touring vehicle, taking you to some of the many special places in England's most diverse region.  

The elegant Georgian city of Bath, the picturesque limestone villages of the Cotswolds, the mysterious standing stone circle of Stonehenge and soaring Salisbury Cathedral are perhaps the most iconic.  However, there's much, much more to see and do whether on a half day, full day or extended tour.  If you enjoy visiting historic cities, market towns and picturesque villages, cathedrals, abbeys and churches, castles and country houses, the West Country has it all, not to mention some of the greatest works of the industrial age, beautiful national parks and coastline, wildlife sanctuaries, safari parks and gardens.

What we can offer you

PRIVATE BLUE BADGE DRIVER GUIDE TOURS

West Country Driver Guide Tours offers a professional Blue Badge-qualified private driver-guided tour service that puts you at its heart. Your tour will be exclusive to you and your party of up to six people, with no one else to please but yourselves. Your driver guide will respond sensitively to your needs and help make your tour precisely that, your tour.

CLEAR, HONEST, and GOOD-HUMOURED GUIDING

You can expect clear, honest, informed, relevant and good-humoured commentary on the places you see, starting with the big picture.  We will welcome your questions, and enjoy any lively exchange of information and discussion.  If you're a non-native speaker of English and your English listening skills are not that strong, your driver guide's years of experience teaching English as a Foreign Language will help get the message across.  If you're an Italian or a French speaker, you'll be pleased to know that your driver is qualified by the Institute of Tourist Guiding to guide in those languages.

DEEP LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

Our demanding Blue Badge guide training and deep local knowledge from years living in different parts of the West Country have been employed in devising tours that include many of the region's better- as well as some less well-known attractions.  If you don't find a tour that exactly matches your requirements, we will work with you to adapt one to your needs.  We can even devise an entirely tailor-made tour, including extended tours involving one or more nights away.

TOUR PLANNING DONE FOR YOU

Busy people should like our menus of full- and half-day tour suggestions.  These include highlights of the region's iconic sites like Stonehenge, as well as themed tours, for example our Brunel in the West tour for those who'd like to admire the legacy of the great Victorian engineer.  We'll plan a tailor-made tour for those who have other ideas or would like an extended tour.

TWO TOURING BASES - London and Bath

We operate tours of the West Country from two touring bases, London and Bath.

London -  We can pick you up from your London hotel, Heathrow or Gatwick airport, or from one of the many country hotels to the south or west of London.  We will take you westwards for a full day tour, or an extended tour deeper into the region.  If you like, we can even stop off on the way.  What about Windsor Castle? 

Bath  - We can pick you up not only in Bath itself but also from country house hotels in the surrounding area, the nearby city of Bristol or Bristol Airport.  Bath makes a great 'home from home' for those who would like to enjoy a series of full or half day tours of the surrounding region from a single touring base, or as the starting point for a regional tour south-westwards into Devon and Cornwall.

ON BOARD GUIDING and WALKING TOURS

We don't just offer driver-guided tours in our own vehicle.  We also provide guiding in your vehicle whether it's a chauffeur-driven limousine, minibus or coach.  In addition, we will take city walking tours of Bath, Bristol, Gloucester, Salisbury or Wells.
