A wonderful and fun tour. We learned so much and enjoyed our guide Dave Hb mm
Stonehenge has a new museum and show since our last visit which has added greatly to the experienc.
Any trip to England deserves a trip to his historic sight. Salisbury is also worth exploring especially the cathedral.

This tour was great. Sebastian was a GREAT guide. He was very knowledgeable and personable. He perfectly balanced hands on guiding and having us explore on our own at points. He also recommended a restaurant the Cote in Salisbury and it was great! Highly recommend this tour!

My wife and I along with our daughter and 14-year old grandson took a Stonehenge-related tour in late March. Our tour guide, Jeff, arranged the tour around our interests, showing us Woodhenge and Stonehenge and we discussed Bluestonehenge and their mutual relation. Jeff's knowledge about the latest theories of their construction and purpose was very impressive. In the afternoon we had a special presentation about the recent findings at Blick Mead that extends our knowledge of early man in this area back to the mesolithic period. It was the highlight of our trip and our grandson is still talking about it.

This was an extremely well organised tour which was smooth from a punctual pick-up to the drop-off at the hotel. The day was filled with unexpected experiences, which went beyond even what the itinerary promised, all made better by the company of our friendly guide, Sebastian, who provided interesting incidental facts and anecdotes to accompany the sights.

The day was full and yet relaxed, with ample time to enjoy each experience The thoughtful planning and commentary gave us a more comprehensive understanding of how each of the elements we saw played a part in the history of the area. Sebastians genuine enthusiasm and extensive knowledge really made the trip special, and we ended the day having learned more fully about the areas history rather than a just disparate jumble of facts.

It is difficult to choose favourite moments as we thoroughly enjoyed every one from seeing Salisbury cathedral from the same vantage point as Constable, as the morning mist rose from the meadows taking in the art glass exhibition and sculptures at the truly majestic Salisbury Cathedral visiting the castle ruins at Old Sarum, overlooking New Sarum now Salisbury divining lay lines at Bluehenge, and surveying the landscape at Durrington Walls, the site of the neolithic settlement.

A highlight was of course the visit to Stonehenge, and chance to spend time in the exhibition at the visitor centre there, but the tranquility and beauty of Woodhenge was also not to be missed.

This was an outstanding tour, packed but never rushed, and we would highly recommend it. Faultless and first class!
