Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Private Viewing of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We had David, a very knowledgeable guide who amused us with stories and interesting history of the places we were going, as well as London and England in general. He also handled a very difficult person on the bus, who could have turned the tour into a nightmare for everyone. David made an effort to engage everyone on the bus and tried to get as much info and activity as he could in the limited time we had. We had three in our party and we would definitely do this tour with David as our guide again.
Walking through Stonehenge was a great experience, just looking at the stones and the surrounding plains and wondering, why did they do this? :-)
The trip to Lacock wasn't terribly exciting for me, but I absolutely loved Bath! I could have spent all day there.
This tour is a great way to see two World Heritage sites on the same day!
Fantastic tour. The only tour available for our dates that allowed us to go inside the circle was the private viewing at sunrise. We were picked up at a specific hotel about 5 am and after several more stops to pick up others on our tour, we left London for Stonehenge. The tour delivered what they promised with one exception...we did not arrive at Stonehenge until AFTER sunrise. Even though we did not see the sunrise it was a marvelous experience. We were met by the security person and escorted to the circle where our guide gave us some basic information. Only 25 people were allowed inside the circle at a time for 30 minutes. We were in the second group. As the first group viewed the stones, we walked around on the pathway around the circle. When we were allowed inside the circle, we were given more information by our guide. As it turned out, the security person had a ton of information about the background of the stones as well as some great pictures of the summer and winter solstice (I think).
Gong to Bath and Lacock were nice add ons but Stonehenge was definitely the star of the show for us
Bath was very crowded and dinner was fairly rushed. The time spent in Stonehenge, however, was amazing! I would do this again in a heartbeat!!
If you are going to see Stonehenge this is the way to do it. Yes you have to get up early, but it is worth it. The tour is private and you can walk amongst and inside the stones. On other tours you can only walk around a designated path. Lacock was quaint and a nice stop for an English Breakfast. The Roman Bath's in Bath (thus the name) were fantastic and the town did a great job in restoration. Would have liked to spend more time there! I will return one day to Bath to spend the night and take in more of this beautiful village. The guide was knowledgeable and even the bus driver joined in to give the group a hand. Very enjoyable and worth the cost.
Wow ! What an incredible experience !
We still can't believe we have been privileged to visit the inner sanctum of Stone Henge.
Our guide,David and driver,Malcolm had great repartee and kept the entire group of multinationals occupied and amused for the entire day.
The big question is, why do you only have five stars, this tour much more worthy than five !
Paul, our guide, and Cyrus, our driver, could not have been more welcoming, informative, accommodating and professional! The trip to Bath, Lacock and Stonehenge (with the magical sunset as we were leaving) could not have been better! Highly recommended!
It was spectacular to be within the stones themselves, and the sunset was gorgeous. Even on the way back from our viewing, the scene of the stones against the vivid pinks of the sunset in the turquoise colored sky took my breath away. Our guide, Paul, was charming and informative. An altogether lovely experience.
Great tour with a great tour guide. Would highly recommend this tour.
What an amazing tour!! It was spectacular to be able to go into the stones. This is a must for anyone. It was the highlight of my trip for sure.
If you want to get up and personal with Stonehenge then this is the tour for you. I loved it!
This was fantastic! Our driver and tour guide were fantastic. I must see.
United States of ...
The only way to see Stonehenge I think. We got there before the crowds and were the ONLY group on the grounds. David was very passionate, and had a great sense of humor. Our driver Malcolm was very knowledgeable as well, not just a wheelman. Bath and Lacock were beautiful as well, and the restaurant we had breakfast in was perfect. A must do!!!
I have done a lot in my life. This was in the top 3. Walking amung the stones is an amazing experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Having an hour at Stonehenge prior to the crowds showing up was worth every penny! I don't know why you would want to visit this phenomenal place if you couldn't go into the inner circle. We could have done without the time spent in Lacock. The breakfast there was very disorganized. My husband got his food after the rest of our table was done eating. We didn't have time to wait for a second cup of coffee even. Walking around the town was O.K., but we would have preferred getting back to London earlier in the day and skipping this town altogether. Bath was worth seeing and the gelato was awesome!
The very early start to this day was well worth it with our first view of Stonehenge. We were able to get up close and personal with the stones. Having a small group added to the atmosphere. The trip to Bath was extremely interesting. We had plenty of time to do the Roman Baths as well as look around the town before heading back to London
Better than being on the outside of the ropes!!
This was my favorite part of our visit to England/London. The Roman baths were much more interesting than I had expected they would be. We actually didn't have that much time to wander around the town of Bath because we were at the Roman baths for so long. I would have liked to have spent some time in the Bath Cathedral, which I understand is beautiful. Lacock is an adorable English village. The cottages there are so quaint. The dinner that we had at the George Inn was wonderful. It's amazing that they can serve good quality food to 40 people at the same time. After we looked at a menu, the meal and beverage choices were phoned in by our guide, James, ahead of time. Our beverages were waiting for us on the counter when we arrived. These folks have things down to a science. Stonehenge was the most amazing part of the journey. Since James is an English Heritage guide, we were able to visit Stonehenge after normal park hours. We were also allowed into the inner circle, which was extraordinary. It was pouring when we arrived, but our considerate bus driver, Barry, loaned us his huge English umbrella. Eventually the rain let up for some photos. This tour ran like clockwork. I could not believe how accurate the schedule was. This tour was very well run and quite organized.
The whole day was awesome. Our guide was very friendly and an endless source of information which made the excursion that much more interesting. I especially enjoyed the private viewing of Stonehenge. Truly a once in a lifetime experience!
Absolutely awe inspiring. Entering the inner circle and exploring the stones up close was beyond explanation. Everyone interested in the Stonehenge should take this tour.
I think I wouldn't have enjoyed just walking around the edge. To get inside with relatively few others was a wonderful experience. We made a memory none of us will forget. Really enjoyed Paul and his "What's That" book.
This was amazing. It was organized through Premier Tours. Our guide David was terrific. He had wonderful stories about the area, the stones, culture and the arts.
We are experienced travelers, and our Premier Tour Guide David was among the best we had experienced.
See the site at Dusk added to the atmosphere of magic.
A wonderful experience! Getting up close and personal with the stones at Stonehenge, the tour guide's commentary, and the latest up to date information about the scientific research that has been happening was so interesting. The tour of Lacock was like taking a step back in time. Then the tour of Bath just put the icing on the cake! What a wonderful day!
Steve, our guide, and Malcolm, our driver kept us entertained and informed. It was just great to be able to go in between the stones instead of staying outside the rope as those not on our tour had to! Laycock and Bath were charming and our English breakfast was delicious
