We had the best time on this tour. Tony, our Tour Guide, was so knowledgable, insightful, and funny. We so enjoyed listening to him throughout the day. His insights brought incredible depth to our experience. The sights were stunning, from the beauty of the Salisbury Cathedral and the historical significance of the Magna Carta, to the magnificence of Stonehenge with its stark setting in the middle of lush green fields, to the approachable and touchable stone circles of Avebury. We would definitely take this tour again. Our weather was sunny and quite warm, so you might want to bring along some sunscreen.
Small group nice van, and David was a WONDERFUL guide--extremely knowledgeable and conversant without being annoying (as some guides can be). Loved Old Sarum, Salisbury, Stonehenge, and Avebury. I just don't know how the trip could have been nicer. And since it was my birthday--David had everyone sing "Happy Birthday" to me--What a way to celebrate!
David was a very knowledgeable and organised tour guide. We even saw an unexpected crop circle on our tour! Highly recommended.
Exactly what I had hoped for. No mystical moonshine - just a clear, fascinating, and well-informed introduction to the sites. David's knowledge of history, scholarship, and recent discoveries was impressive, and he struck just the right balance between giving us information and allowing us to experience the sites for ourselves. I only wish the trip had been a little longer!
I enjoyed this tour very much. I was astonished at the guide's breadth and depth of knowledge on the tour stops, as well as other sites along the way. He was very personable and fun.
Very good tour and happy with all aspects. Worth seeing Avebury and Salisbury. Very well organised and presented
What a fantastic trip. I highly recommend the small group trips over the big coach trips where you feel like you are herded onto a cattle car. The small bus made for a much more manageble group for our tour guide. Tony was extremely knowledgeble and his humor made a long day fly by. We had only 10 in our bus and we quickly discovered that hanging around Tony was the best way to soak in the experience. My wife and I did a similar tour a few years ago with another group on the coaches and the small group was a much more pleasant and enriching experience.
It was a great trip, the car was comfortable, a small group and the destinations are really great - the Cathedral in Salisbury is outstanding, Stonehenge is Stonehenge and Avebury has also great ruins to see, in a terrific landscape. The trip was even better because of the guide, David, very nice and knowledgeable, giving all the context and stories behind what we where seeing, and also allowing free time for us to explore the places.
Great guide - well informed and friendly.
Could cut time spent in Salisbury to give more time at Stonehenge, particularly the new Interpretive Centre.
Highly recommended for those interested in early cultures.
Small groups are the way to go - people don't get overlooked and lost.
Great scenery and a very knowledgeable guide. Really enjoyed the day and would recommend it.Salisbury Cathedral is magnificent.
