We are in the process of re-opening after our 18-month closure, but logistical issues mean we cannot offer tours for the remainder of 2021. Please get in touch with your enquiries for 2022, and we'd be delighted to help!

Want to find out about our private car tours from Bath? Then you're in the right place.

COVID-19 update: We are open and currently taking bookings for 2021. We are operating to the latest government guidelines to protect your safety on our tours. We only take one booking per day, so we have time to fully sanitise the car before the next day's tour. We can tailor the trip to only visit locations that you are comfortable visiting. There are plenty of hidden gems to stay away from the crowds on a day trip from Bath. Please get in touch to find out our detailed Covid precautions and what to expect to make sure we are all safe.

We tailor make every private car tour for each individual guest. Our initial discussions will cover your interests and any preferences or mobility needs you may have. Nothing is too much trouble. We’ll put together the perfect tour for you, whether you have a few hours or a few days. If you don’t know where to start planning your tour in the West Country, take a look at our day tours pages for some inspiration, or get in touch.

We’ll talk you through the tour so you can double check you’re happy. We understand that circumstances can change, especially at the moment, so we’re always flexible and can change plans at the last minute if needed.

Our tours are all about travelling in comfort. We can plan meal stops around your preferences, whether you want a traditional pub lunch (always a popular choice) a cream tea or even a picnic we’ll find something for you.

Whatever your holiday schedule we can work around you. If you need a transfer from London to Bath then why not turn it into a tour of the Cotswolds, or visit Stonehenge on the way. With plenty of room for your luggage in the boot, why waste a time on a motorway when you could be seeing some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK.

  • About Your Tour Host, Mike Lane

    Always courteous and smartly dressed, Mike is the quintessential English gentleman. If you would like his company and assistance during your visits to tourist attractions he’s more than happy to join you, or you’re welcome to take visit at your leisure and he’ll be waiting for your return.

    One of the things Mike enjoys most about taking his guests on tour is the bond they quickly make, and how much he contributes to the enjoyment of their special day trip. Of course he tells his visitors about the history and facts of the places on the tour, and there’ll be a lot of talk about mutual countries and the differences between them, and how we live our lives.

    Mike left the corporate world at the turn of the century. After training to become a London Guide, and working for another tour company, Mike moved to the West Country to set up Liberty Car Tours to pursue a more rewarding life. A real people person, he always loves to make new friends from across the world.

    About your tour host, Mike Lane
    Mike Lane, Your Host
  • I love people, and I think this shows in how successful my tours are. In the end it is not just about a comfortable car and wonderful destinations, but how much we become friends even if just for one day.

    Mike Lane

    Mike is a real history geek, and is very proud of his English heritage and the Royal Family. The region, known as Wessex in Saxon times, is full of history. From the Stone Age monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury, through Roman and medieval times to the modern day there is something for everyone.

    While Mike is not officially a guide, as your host he’s a veritable encyclopedia, and will be able to tell you all about your tour destinations. He’s also the perfect introduction into the, sometimes eccentric, ways of the British people. Whether you want the latest gossip on the Royal Family, to understand British politics or are just curious about what fanny means to an Englishman, you’re sure to finish your tour enlightened.
