ABOUT US

Our Story

Anderson Tours officially began in 1992 when our owner and founder, Mark Anderson, had the idea of expanding on his already successful coach company, Anderson Travel, by creating a sister company to operate day tours & weekend breaks from London on these same vehicles. Here we are nearly 30 years later with a long-standing reputation for quality & reliability, operating from our central London offices on Tower Bridge Road just a stone's throw from the iconic Tower Bridge. Anderson Tours offers a wide range of day excursions and weekend breaks on our fleet of luxury coaches & minibuses for groups, families, couples & individual travellers alike. From day tours to some of Britain's most amazing sights such as Stonehenge, Glastonbury, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Cambridge & Dover Castle to weekend breaks to fascinating locations including Paris, the Isle of Wight, Brugge & Amsterdam, each tour we offer has been carefully crafted with your enjoyment in mind.

Our Mission

Our aim is to provide tours of outstanding quality to amazing locations that are reachable by coach or train from London, chosen predominantly because of their beauty & rich historical or mythological significance. We include transport, entrances to attractions & tour guides (as well as hotels for our weekend breaks) to save you the hassle and to ensure you get the most out of your day. Our team are travel experts, crafting and continually improving each tour to give you the best possible experience. We aim to provide the perfect balance of guided commentary with free time to explore, inclusions with value for money. We are flexible and keep on top of changing circumstances to anticipate anything that might impact your day. Browse through the attractive range of tours and excursions on offer on our website. Please email us if you require any additional information and our dedicated team are always quick to answer and help in any way they can. We also offer tailor-made tours for individuals and groups of all sizes including transport, hotels, meals, entrances & tour guides. Being experts in the industry, having our own fleet of vehicles & tour guides, and having contracts with many suppliers that offer us preferential rates, we are well-placed to organise your groups - whether they are student groups, events, corporate groups, families, incentive groups or anything else.
