We had an absolutely outstanding tour with Tom, starting with a very comfortable tour bus ride from London (about 2 hours) including a very entertaining and informative introduction to Neolithic and early Bronze Age structures complete with many amusing anecdotes during the ride as well as some stories about the lives of archaeologists, both recent and ancient. The tours of Stonehenge, the Salisbury Cathedral and the Avebury henge provided some great insights and the several stops at shops and pubs broke up the day so that it was not too tiring. Nothing but good things to say. Have fun!

What an awesome day! It started with Thomas, our guide, picking us up at our hotel. We then drove to Stonehenge. On the way, Thomas educated us about the history and other amazing information about Stonehenge, the surrounding countryside, and other amazing archeological information. Once we arrived in Stonehenge, he took us around the ruins, educating us along the way. The next stop was Salisbury, where we visited the magnificent cathedral containing a copy of the Magna Carta. We then took a stroll the medieval city of Salisbury followed by eating “Sunday Roast” at a local restaurant. We then traveled to Avebury, where Thomas again shared his in depth knowledge about the circular stone structures located there. We ended the visit with a warm up at the local pub. We were then transported home with wonderful memories to share with family and friends. Overall, this was an amazing and enjoyable day filled with fun, education and awe. I highly recommend this trip.

where to begin... this tour was amazing and made doubly so by our wonderful guide Edward. such an easy pick up /drop off opposite the Natural history museum , a driver so Edward could focus on the tour. no earphones or huge groups for us .. Edward told us so much more than your average Stonehenge history and no question from the group fazed him. ending the day at Avebury and being able to walk through the stones at sunset was a real highlight. the day was suitably ended with a drink at the only pub inside a henge and more chatting. 5 stars doesn't seem enough :) a special thanks to Edward who gave us great info on places to visit in Florence that weren't traditional tourist spots, we did them all and loved it .

This was probably my most talked about tour from my two weeks in the UK, and believe me, I took a lot of tours. Edward is a walking, talking encyclopedia of information. Like I mentioned in my headline, when we got to Stonehenge, I saw all of these other tour groups walking around with their sad little earphones on. Not us. We had an actual archaeologist walking us through our tour, talking about the latest information, etc. It was fascinating. We visited a 5300 year old burial mound which again Edward was able to discuss in great detail. No type or amount of questions stumped him. I have wanted to see Stonehenge my whole life and I'm very glad I chose this tour to do it. Other tours are probably ok, functional, etc, but they will fall far short of this one. The whole experience was great and we even had a driver so Edward could focus on talking with us during the transit times. If you want a cursory look at Stonehenge, Bath, Avebury, etc, just to "check the box" so to speak, then this is not your tour. But, if you want to really learn some things I promise you didn't know before, this is the only tour you should consider.

A remarkable day travelling to some of England’s most ancient sites. Edward was our guide and gave us wonderful insights into the history of these monumental structures. Edward was a true teacher: he informed, inspired further learning and the day flew by. Highly recommend this tour.
