'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.'

Before travelling, we recommend that non-UK residents read the advice issued by their government regarding health, safety and security in the UK.
As is the case with all European coach and bus operators, our driving and working hours are regulated law in the interests of your safety. Our standard scheduled itineraries are compliant with the current regulations. However, our archaeologists will always advise you if they need to make time or route alterations depending on prevailing traffic conditions.
Vehicle fogging takes place at the end of each day to ensure a deeper clean overnight. We have installed air conditioning pods and these use filters and UV light to cleanse the air as it recirculates, killing 99% of bacteria and viruses.
Our tours involve some walking between sites. We advise that you wear stout comfortable shoes for walking over different terrains (including fields), archaeological sites and a waterproof coat (as British weather can be unpredictable at the best of times). Travelling as a private group, allows us to adapt any itinerary, to reduce the amount of walking if desired.
You may also want to bring with you anti-bacterial hand gel and a reusable water bottle.
For a five-day forecast in the run-up to departure we suggest you consult www.bbc.co.uk/weather.
