Can't help with the bus-tour company but I can extend a warm welcome to you Bob to POE (Pictures of England). You will find some of the loveliest photographs here, lots of information on the towns/villages & attractions to be seen and enjoyed in England. And fun and games in the Forums.
there are many bus companys bob but dont operate in all areas --arriva is a large nationwide company,stagecoach,national,and then the local county companys--it all depends where you are operating from-try googling the companys.
Hi Bob! I discovered a touring company that specializes in smaller, 16 passenger coaches that are able to travel more of the backroads and thus visit more out of the way villages and countryside. The website is www.backroadstouring.co.uk. I was thinking the next time I get to visit the UK, I would seriously consider this for my trip. Happy travels! Barbara
