Description
Choose a morning or evening tour when booking, and then leave central London to visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge, free from its daytime crowds. Visitors arriving at the site during the peak daylight hours are not permitted to have direct access to the intriguing stone circle. However, your ‘private viewing’ tour enables your group to walk inside the roped-off circle, and admire the stones close up.

Hear the secrets and mysterious stories about Stonehenge from your expert guide, and experience the site at its atmospheric best! Depending on the time of year you visit, you may even be lucky enough to catch the sunset or sunrise; it’s sure to make your Stonehenge viewing an unforgettable experience. Read on for more details of each option; both tours finish with a drop-off at Victoria in central London.

Morning Tour:
After exploring the stones with your guide, travel onward to the nearby village of Lacock, a place often cited as one of England’s most picturesque villages. Hear of Lacock’s past as a Saxon dwelling, and learn about its use as a setting for many movie and TV programs including the adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Stretch your legs on a walk with your guide, and then head inside the George, a 14th-century pub, for breakfast (own expense).

Continue to Bath, a UNESCO-listed city in the county of Somerset. Enjoy a tour of the Roman Baths, visit Bath Abbey, and learn some more about Jane Austen, who was born in the city. If you wish, enjoy a short walking tour to see where the legendary novelist Charles Dickens lived and worked as a young man, and sample fresh cheese from a local dairy. Alternatively, make the most of some free time to explore independently.

Evening Tour:
From London, travel first to the city of Bath to explore the Roman Baths and visit Bath Abbey, as described for the Morning Tour. Continue to Lacock for a walk around the picturesque village, and then enjoy dinner at the George pub (own expense). Last, but not least, travel to Stonehenge for your tour of the stones when the day-trippers have left the site.

Highly recommended. Pictures from the outer walkway will not do this justice after you've been able to appreciate the size of this structure up close. Breakfast at Lacock was great and despite the rain had a good time exploring Bath.

Was an amazing tour. Carol and Malcom where not only informative but beyond friendly and extremely efficient. It made visiting StoneHenge a once in a lifetime not really, will bring kids next time experience.

We were so impressed by our guide, Julie and driver Richardo. The tour bus was on time and very clean. The tour was well structured with Julie giving narration throughout the day however we felt the tour needs to be about an hour longer. We would have liked more time in the gift shop at Stonehenge as we only had 10 minutes to buy and use the restroom so it was rush, rush, rush. The inner circle was unbelievable as you are right up there with the rocks and you are the only people as everyone else has left. There was 50 on our bus so it was not too big to have 2 groups go in to take pictures. It's amazing how big the rocks are in person so spend the extra money to do the inner circle tour. A bucket list memory for sure!

What a fantastic trip! Stonehenge was by far the highlight of the day. Our group was split in half and had 30 minutes to spend inside the stone circle. It was a dream come true for me to be able to see this sacred site this way.
While the city of Bath was charming, I was claustrophobic inside the Roman baths. The small rooms were packed with tourists. I am normally not claustrophobic at all. The abbey was beautiful and definitely worth the trip. The town of Lacock was charming. The meal was adequate, but not especially tasty to our group of 3.
The tour guide Lucy was very knowledgeable and the drive Daniel was terrific. Both were very happy to take photos of us at the sites, but especially so for Stonehenge when they were with us the entire time.
Highly recommended tour!

Absolutely worth the time and money! This tour delivers exactly what it promises - we were the very first group to arrive at Stonehenge, so we have amazing photos with not another person in sight! No crowds, no noise, just this amazing and unique spot in the world with only our group and a few guards in sight. If you care to see Stonehenge, see it this way.

Amazing tour and well worth it to get the inner circle access. Stonehenge was the highlight of the trip for my husband and 11 year old. When you are in the inner circle, you get up close to the stones and can really appreciate them. The Roman Bath in Bath was so interesting and we could have spent more time exploring Bath. Laycock is a charming village and the pub lunch was quite good We highly recommend this tour.

Our guide was wonderful and the tour was very educational!! This type of access to Stonehenge is definitely the way to experience it. It is a little pricey, but definitely worth the money. Bath and Lacock are beautiful. It's an early morning start, but I would highly recommend this tour!!

Worth every penny! Tour guide was quite knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed Bath, but would have liked about another hour to walk the city and enjoy the street entertainment. If you just wanted to see the baths and have a quick bite, it was perfect. Dinner in Lacock was nicely done. The visit to Stonehenge was wonderful and we particularly enjoyed the fact that our guide cleared us all out so that we could get our postcard photos. What a treat!

This tour was great! Worth every penny. Well-run and informative. It was made all the better by our tour guide Julie?. Her narrative was entertaining and better yet, she ran a tight ship keeping everyone on time. It made for a pleasant experience and maximized the value for everyone.

This was one of our favorite tours while in London and we recommend it. We opted for the sunset tour. Our guide, Lucy and driver, Steve, did a great job working as a team and providing information at all the day's stops: Bath, Lacock, and Stonehenge. While there is a lot of driving between these places, they did a nice job making the most of that time and it was better than other tours we've taken. In Bath, you are provided entrance to the Roman baths and a bit of free time. We recommend to go through quick, so that you have at least a bit of time to look at the city. It was a very nice place and wished there was more time to explore it, and this is the only reason I didn't give this 5 stars. Lacock was nice for dinner, we had the chicken and meat pie, which were fine. Those who had the fish said it was also good. We had a bit of time in Lacock to walk the small city. Lacock is one of the places they do a lot of filming for movies, so we also saw a few fun things! Finally, we went to Stonehenge, which was amazing. By far the best experience of our trip and absolutely beautiful. It was much colder at Stonehenge than the other cities so we were thankful to have brought warmer jackets. Overall, we highly recommend this tour, Lucy, and Steve.
