We had the afternoon tour, starting at 11.10. We were a group of 40 people. We arrived in Bath around 13H30. The ruins of the roman bath were much bigger than I expected and the visit was great. I loved the atmosphere in Bath - I will come back some day. We continued towards Stonehenge and arrived there around 16H30. We had the site for ourselves, and the visit of the monument, with an archeologist answering all our questions, was without any doubt the highlight of the tour. We arrived in Lacock at around 18H45, had dinner there, had a free visit of Lacock, and left at 20H to head back to London. Check your bill in the pub in Lacock before paying, as they tried to make us pay more than the fixed price of 12 pounds per meal. If you are fan of Harry Potter, I would suggest you take a morning tour, which will give you the opportunity to skip lunch and visit the abbey (it was closed when we arrived). Our guide, Carol, was great! Very knowledgeable and helpful. All in all a great tour!

Such a lovely day. The tour guide was so nice and well informed. Lots of free time built in, to explore on your own if you desire. We didn’t see sunrise at Stonehenge (arrived well after), but did have private access and could walk among the ruins. It allowed for a beautiful solo meditation. Pack your swimsuit and extra money if you want to go to the private hotel hot springs while in Bath. We chose to do that rather than site see. Overall a beautiful tour and well worth the early hour.

We had a wonderful, engaging tour with our guide Tony… Valentina was on the tour to hone some navigational info, and they were both great. Friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and gave us a real feeling for the history of the region. Cannot recommend enough, great tour!

Great tour with knowledgeable guide. To actually see the sunrise as described one would have to leave 2h earlier at this time of the year:(March). Only our group was at Stonehenge so it was great for the pictures.

Early start to the day, but well with it!!! I have been to Stonehenge, but wasn’t able to walk next to stones. The archeologist taught our group tons more than on my previous trip!
