I have contacted driver/guide organizations and information locations and haven't gotten anything yet that helps me. Between 2 Rick Steve's Tours we want to quickly go to Lyme Regis to look at fossils and then be dropped off in Salisbury for the night.
I'd prefer to have a driver/guide so I don't have to figure out the public transportation system which I know nothing about.
Even and hour or two at Lyme Regis would be ok and then on to Salisbury to spend the night and no longer need the driver/guide or driver.
For a day in Salisbury, again I know it will be quick but we have to meet the Rick Steve's tour at 5 p.m. in Bath. I can't figure out whether I can just show up at someplace and get 2 tickets for the Stonehenge Bus Tour which also goes to Old Sarum or whether I would likely not get a ticket if I don't do it in advance. We also would want, at least briefly, to go to Salisbury Cathedral. I can't figure out whether it is easy to find the bus and do it on our own or if this is confusing.
Thanks for suggestions--the more detailed, the better.
