This tour was definitely worth the time and money. Our guide Leon was knowledgeable and funny and driver Richard got us everywhere safely and on time. The first stop in Bath was delightful, though getting the full experience of the Roman bath and a good visit to the village is not possible. The pub in Lacock served a delicious meal. The highlight, of course, was the inner circle tour of Stonehenge. Paying for the inner circle tour was definitely worth the price. It rained during our tour, but that only added to the experience. Chris at Stonehenge is a delightful storyteller.

We went on this tour with our teen daughter and we all loved it. Peter is fantastic! Can’t say enough good things about him. He’s has so much knowledge to share about Stonehenge, Bath, and Lacock, as well as London and England overall. Also worth mentioning, he’s very funny! Our driver Jermaine did a great job too and drove safely for 12 hours. We would definitely recommend this tour! It’s worth the extra money for the inside Stonehenge experience and Bath is a beautiful city.

Wonderful day! Excellent tour guide Leon, provided so much wonderful perspective throughout the tour. Our awesome driver, Andre, safely got us from point to point. Seriously, book this tour, it’s early in the morning, but so what!? You get to walk the inner circle of the mysterious Stonehenge, explore the quaint LeCock, and visit the town of Bath, including the very wonderful Bath Roman museum.

Frank was very knowledgeable and shared information with an experienced quality that didn’t place attention on him, but rather the location at hand. Highly recommended!

Really great tour, and the experience of having Stonehenge to a small group for a while is pretty amazing! Frank is a great guide, and very engaging
