I did the sunrise tour of Stonehenge and as the fog was rolling in, my first sight of the standing stones was overwhelming and I started to cry. I booked this tour to be inside the circle and I was able to get many great photos and just feel the magnitude of this ancient place. Lacock was a nice stop afterward with a full English breakfast in a 13th century pub. Many period piece movies are filmed in this historic town including Cranford and Harry Potter. Bath is beautiful and scenic, I enjoyed the tour of the Roman Baths, the Abbey, and the postcard pretty bridges. Tour guide, David did an awesome job on all the tours, keeping us informed and together so we would not miss the coach, a bathroom opportunity, or coffee stop. David is very knowledgeable, spouting history, comedy and many interesting stories, even pointing out sights on the bus. Thank you David
THE VERY BEST .... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! In 2 years of using Viator in Europe, this is 1 of our top 5 experiences! Cannot say enough! If you have any interest in Stonehenge, this is the ONLY tour you should book. Again, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
What an amazing day! It was a very early morning but well worth it! Having the opportunity to wander amongst the stones at sunrise was an experience I will never forget. The visits to Lacock and Bath were also lovely and interesting. And the drive through the English countryside was beautiful!
This trip was fantastic. Our guide David was extremely knowledgeable about the areas (even the history of towns the coach was just passing through) and kept us entertained with interesting, amusing stories. The experience at Stonehenge was worth the price of this tour. Once in a lifetime views. We had a good amount of time to spend at each stop and I never felt rushed. Highly recommend this trip.
David was excellent guide - Bath on a Sunday was limited, Lacock was very interesting, meal was good. Stonehenge at sunset was perfect especially since it was just us - crowds gone as advertised. Added bonus - moon came out of clouds just as we were leaving. Would have been nice to be picked up or dropped off near our hotel but we picked a hotel near the Victoria Coach Station to keep the walks before and after under 10 minutes.
While some may groan at the early start, it was completely worth it to stand among these magical stones. I walked the path that most visitors have to do, unable to go near them. How disappointing that would have been. Make the effort, and throw down a few more dollars, and walk in and around this mysterious area.
My daughter and I had a great experience on the tour. Being in Stonehenge amongst the stones was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed Lacock and wished we'd had more time. Bath was a great experience as well. I highly recommend this tour.
We absolutely loved this tour ! We went inside the inner circle at Stonehenge and got to see the wonderful and amazing stones up close and personal, which we could not have done without this private viewing tour. Also we went in an hour before the park opened which allowed us to take pictures without crowds of people always in the background. Lacock village was absolutely charming, it has preserved its appearance and unique charisma from centuries past. Time has not touched this village ! Breakfast in Lacock's 14th century pub was a unique experience ! Their dog wheel and fireplace was so amazing -- an absolute must-see ! The city of Bath was simply spectacular -- walking where the Romans did in 1000 AD, visiting the Roman Baths with their beautiful architecture, intricate statues and marble columns was an experience nobody should miss. Our guide David ( a teacher himself) was extremely knowledgeable, very passionate about history, and gave us wonderful information on everything we saw. All in all, a trip I would highly recommend !
David (tour guide) and Malcolm (driver) were very entertaining and informative. We had a glorious day, and the entire family enjoyed this unforgettable tour.
Very good guide and driver. Worth the extra fee to get into the Stonehenge inner circle.
We had an amazing trip to Stonehenge, Lacock, and Bath. David was an entertaining and informative guide, and James was an excellent driver. Getting to step inside Stonehenge was amazing! Also, seeing it without the huge crowds around was well worth the early morning start. Visiting beautiful Lacock and having a traditional English breakfast was perfect. Loved walking the streets and hearing David's commentary. Bath was packed the day we visited due to a graduation ceremony there, but we still saw everything we wanted and more. Given the option of wandering on our own or taking a walk with David, we chose the latter. I'm glad we did, as David again had tons of information and insight that we would have missed out on in that beautiful town. We arrived back to London around 5:30pm. It was a wonderful day, and I'm so thrilled we chose this tour. It couldn't have been any better.
Definitely worth the extra money to walk among the stones. The guide was excellent, the food was great, and Stonehenge was simply amazing. We loved Bath and Lacock as well. The only thing that would have made this tour better would have been 1/2 more in Lacock. The whole family loved it.
The tour guide david was a wealth of information, a real tour de force history lesson for my kids. They said they will always remember the mystical tour to Stonehenge and our well spoken tour guides david and malcom- dr s. Denbaars
Absolutely breathtaking!!! I would pay the price again and again to go inside the circle of stones. It was so quiet and peaceful and we were mostly the only tourists there for the sunset time. Lacock was gorgeous and Bath was nice too. Our tour guide and driver David and Malcolm were both fabulous!
This tour is definitely worthwhile for anyone who has a serious interest in Stonehenge. Being able to walk among the stones was truly a spiritual experience which I'm sure you would not feel if you were only able to view from the roped off walkway. The rest of the tour was also good, however I would have liked a little more time in Bath.
This was a fantastic tour! Our tour guide, Carol, was very knowledgable about the history and architecture of the areas we visited. Bath was a gorgeous city, and being in Lacock was like stepping back in time. Stonehenge was beautiful and fascinating, and it was well worth the additional cost for the sunset tour to be able to walk between the stones. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
This tour is a must!!!!
You get to go inside the circle of Stonehenge which is very rare! The energy in the circle is amazing!!! You feel connected to the earth!
The Lacock is very adorable. It's stunning to walk around. Shops, bakery!
Bath abosutely stunning!!! It's definitely worth spending!
An amazing experience especially being up and close to the stones. The sight is much improved with much more information about how it was done.
Do this tour! The guide was informative, interesting, and well-versed in her knowledge of the history and highlights along the route to Stonehenge and for each area we visited. The driver was fun and also very knowledgeable. The town of Bath was quaint and endearing -- we could have spent many more hours/days there! We were given plenty of time at each stop to explore without feeling rushed. To be able to enter the sacred circle of Stonehenge during sunset was remarkable, and something none of us will ever forget.
Amazing experience. Our tour guide James was full of knowledge, so much so that I was shocked about how he knew even the minute details of different places we not only visited but past. A bit pricey, but I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!
By far, my favorite tour of our trip!!! Our guide and driver were engaging and funny - we love the 'dry' humor!! The bus was comfortable and relaxing, making the guided parts of tour more enjoyable. Breakfast at the tavern was filled with history and lessons about the past of the tavern and city of Lacock too! Seeing Stonehenge up close and personal was a breath taking experience; no crowds and private guided tour - a wealth of history all to yourself. I would recommend this trip to anyone!!
