This tour was awesome. The things I loved most about it were that the number of people on the tour was very limited so you were not competing to hear your guide. The guides are incredibly knowledgeable not only from an archaeological perspective but also...More

We had an amazing tour in October 2018 to Stonehenge, Bath, and Avebury! Edward was a fantastic guide who shared his insight and knowledge with humor and enthusiasm. Our small group meant we could have conversations about the sites instead of questions and lectures. It...More

A marvellous experience to visit Stonehenge, Bath and Avebury with an experienced archaeologist! Thank you to Edward our archaeologist/tour leader (and George our excellent driver) for a wonderful day full of current theories and interesting speculation about Stonehenge and Avebury and the peoples who built...More

Stone Henge and Avebury are 4500 year old sites of the first inhabitants of this area. A trip there without a guide is largely wasted, the average time on site has been quoted as 20 minutes and I believe it. The sites don't come alive...More

I have lived overseas for 30 years, traveling the world. This guided tour was THE BEST of them all. THAT is quite a statement, and not an exaggeration.

Our guide Edward was simply outstanding. He was intimately familiar with the sites- as he does research on them - and was clearly highly engaged and enthusiastic about the area and his work. He shared with us the very latest developments in his field which...More

This tour met my standards for an intelligent, articulate and friendly tour guide, Edward. And the tour self selects people interested in learning more than checking off a bucket list, producing a congenial small group. So ditto to the other reviewers.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

I basically agree with the two other responders. For me, Stonehenge was the first priority, and then Avebury (great together). Bath was not special for me, but I was looking to see the prehistoric, so that was my focus... More
