Evan Evans' tours from London...

Jump to last reply

In another thread about daytrips from London several have mentioned their experience(s) with Evan Evans Tours. I'd be curious to know how many of you have used the company and how it worked out for you.

I've had mixed success with Evan Evans. My first trip with them, some years back, was great. We went to Salisbury, Stonehenge, and Bath. Everything appeared top notch, including a good guide and a very comfortable coach. The following year I booked the same trip for wife, my daughter, and myself. The bus didn’t leave from the E. E. location; instead we were marched en masse to a bus barn several blocks away in a driving rain. We bailed out at the last moment because the busses were PACKED and did not have onboard toilets. It’s is, after all, a fairly long trip.

The next year we booked a coach to Scotland and were told to meet the bus at such-and-such an address, which turned out to be an abandoned business near St. Pancras station. No one was there and there was no sign of any traveler’s facilities, not even a bench to wait upon. We walked a very long way back to the E. E. office and the young receptionist kindly (although a bit condescendingly) agreed to walk us to where we were supposed to meet the coach. Upon arrival she was dumbfounded to find that we had been in the right place earlier and that all we’d told her was true, that the place was an abandoned storefront. She made several calls on her cell phone and during one of them the much-ballyhoo’d coach indeed arrived. I booked another trip with them last spring for a friend and he had little good to say about it, that the coach arrived and departed very late, was not clean, and that the guide was either drunk or insane, perhaps both.

Might have been an anomaly but it seems that each trip I've booked through Evan Evans has been on the steep decline from the previous trip. Get directions and plenty of information including a phone number to the main desk in case of a fiasco like our trip to Scotland.

My first experience with E. E. was so good I'm kind of hoping to hear from you that they've once again got back to the top of their game. How was it for you?
