'Stonehenge, Wayland's Smithy, Uffington Horse, ancient British history! We spent two fantastic days with Tom, a professional archaeologist. I wanted a private special tour of ancient British history. Tom was so prepared and knowledgeable. And he was wonderful to travel with. The way we explored Stonehenge was amazing. We spent time in the afternoon in the other Stonehenge landscape, learning about the entire area. Then we visited Stonehenge with Tom at 6:45 pm and it was like we had it all to ourselves. He knew all the ways to make it special. I was reluctant to get too excited about Stonehenge due to the crowds but it was magical!! Two of the best days of my life as a passionate ancient British history student. Highly recommend!'
'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, and inspired further learning and the day flew by. Highly recommend this tour.'
'Our first trip to England would not have been complete without a trip to Stonehenge. On a whim, I booked the archaeological tour with Tom. My husband and I took the tour with our teenage son and my parents. The trip is a highlight of my life. It is positively one of the most amazing experiences we’ve ever had. Tom was terrific. He has so much knowledge and is very well spoken.'
'I took the Stonehenge, Bath and Avebury tour with our guide Edward, and I'll say at the outset that it was terrific. I had been to Stonehenge previously, but this time it felt like I was able to appreciate it in a much deeper way. Edward is knowledgeable, personable, and funny, everything you could ask for in a guide. During the day, he never tired of answering our questions and providing up-to-date information. Although we learned a lot, I should also point out that the tour was great fun, ending up at a convivial pub. I was so thrilled with everything I took from the experience, that I talked about it to friends long after I returned to New York.'
'This tour was absolutely perfect and well worth the money. It was so nice to be able to have an archaeologist to give more information and answer more questions than you’d get from any other tour guide. The size of the group was excellent, and the inclusion of some of the lesser-known sites was awesome! I learned so much from Kim, and I would do this again in a heartbeat!'
'Took this impressive tour to Stonehenge, Bath and Avebury with husband and kids (10 and 14 years old). We should have reviewed this sooner, as we’re always telling everyone about the tour and the inimitable Edward S. The tour with Edward S. is like walking into a documentary film and experiencing VR (virtual reality -without the headset), completely engaging for all ages (no PhD required), keeping it light-hearted, fun and effortlessly informative. He injected humor (Yorkshireman’s style and beyond) like a classy entertainer with comedic timing. Don’t waste your money on the big crowded tourist buses, this archeologist’s guided tour is a highlight of your trip to England and money and time well spent. The shuttle bus is clean and the tour is organized. I’d give this tour more than 5 stars if the ratings scale allows it.'
'With an older sister in school for archaeology, I have been on too many history tours to count. This one stands out as the best! I knew nothing about Stonehenge or the history of the land but left with an amazing appreciation for the people and sites here. Our guide was amazing, really making every piece of history incredibly interesting. Also the physical demonstrations he did to show how the architecture was designed to use the sun's light was fascinating. A must-see!'
