Owner description: For those visitors to Salisbury either for the day or longer, we offer our "Magical History Tour" to Stonehenge. The Magical History Tour is not just a means of transporting you to Stonehenge but also a journey to explore the very soul of the people who have left such a mark on the landscape and in the psyche of today's visitors. Before reaching the World Heritage Site you will be fully acquainted with the magnitude of the tasks these people undertook. At Old Sarum we stop and admire the fabulous 360 degree views. Originally an Iron-Age Fort, Old Sarum was inhabited by Celts, Romans,Saxons, Vikings and finally Normans. We stop and visit the ruined castle and imagine the chivalrous Knights jousting in the castle grounds, and wenches gossiping by the well....A short drive takes us to Old Harnham Mill close to the spot chosen by John Constable for his iconic painting of Salisbury Cathedral. Set amongst water meadows and away from the City, this is a view seen by too few visitors, which is a pity, because it is simply stunning

“Great tour - the very best tour guides”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

I contacted the Salisbury Tours / Value Cars about a personalized tour for my family (5 of us traveling during the holidays in England) for December 23rd and 24th. I was very pleased with the excellent service we received. We toured in a very comfortable van. On December 23rd - Tim picked us up at our hotel in Salisbury and transported us to Bovington (as requested) providing a historical tour of Salisbury and the countryside along the way. Tim provided us as much time as we wanted to tour the British Tank Museum and transported us back to our hotel at the end of the day. The weather turned very stormy by afternoon - however, Tim safely returned us to our hotel. On the morning of December 24th - Tim again picked us up and transported us to see our family's ancestral home and other locations in the Village of Stockton, England. After leaving Stockton we traveled past Stonehenge and on to Oxford as requested. After spending some time in Oxford seeing the sights and having lunch - Tim took us to Woodstock to see Blenheim Palace (birth place of Sir Winston Churchill) and to the nearby Village of Bladon to see St. Martin's Church were the Churchill family is buried. At the end of the day Tim transported us to our hotel in London where we spent Christmas. I cannot recommended this company more highly. Tim provided us as much time at each place we wanted to visit and was very courtesy and helpful. Tim always arrived earlier, but never rushed us - he was ready to go when we were ready to go. He always took the time to point out historical sights and important local information as we drove between the locations we wanted to visits. We all enjoyed our tour very much - which became the highlight of our two week stay in the UK. We look forward to using Salisbury Tours / Value Cars when we visit again in a few years.

“Wanted it all- & got it!!!”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

My husband and I were celebrating our 20th year together, and came to London. Our first time over the pond, we wanted to see it all! As I made arrangements over the Internet, Tim was so helpful! He alleviated our fears, and arranged for transport from Heathrow on a Friday morning, and set up a tour for Monday morning. I wanted to see everything we could, and Tim obliged!! He arrived prior to our arranged time, in a gorgeous new Mercedes Touring car. We went to Salisbury, Old Sarum, through the Woodford forest, to Stonehenge and even to Bath! We learned so much in a short time-- Tim was so knowledgable and shared freely! We even learned a bit about ourselves with divining rods, so it was educational and entertaining! It was over 12 hours, it was getting late, but Tim never rushed us- and even stopped on the way back to our rental home so we could get a bottle of champagne! I would recommend Tim, Sebastian (who we also adored!) or anyone from this great local company!

“great tour and guides”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Visited Stonehenge area with friends and family. Took half day tour. Our guide Sebastian was great. He was very knowledgeable, courteous and very funny. You knew that he enjoyed his job. He seemed just as excited as us to see the sites. The next day Tim picked us up to take us to the airport. He also showed us some additional sites along the way. You can tell that he also enjoys his work. He was also very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I would definitely tour with this company again.

“Fantastic tour to Stonehenge, Salisbury and old Sarum”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

My wife and I took a great tour this month (August 2013) to Stonehenge, Salisbury and old Sarum with the Magical History Tour. We took the train from London to Salisbury in the morning (which was very easy to do). Our tour guide, Tim, picked us up at the train station and then drove us around in a very spacious Mercedes van. Tim was excellent and very informative. He told us about the local history, the current residents (around the area) and provided insight about the surrounding area that we would never have known. He included a few surprises and took us to some very scenic views. This tour is the only (and truly best) way to see the area and learn about Stonehenge, Old Sarum and Salisbury and we would highly recommend it if you have 3-3 1/2 hours to spend in the area.

“Wonderful day tour”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

We took the half day tour of the Salisbury from Bath. Our guide was very knowledgable as he introduced us to lots of secrets and historical tidbits about the places on out way. He had chance to view old thatched cottages around Salisbury country side. We also had a chance to see amazing Caen Hill Locks.
