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.

Regardless of the drive. If in England you must see the wonder of Stonehenge. The inner circle tour was worth the price for the privacy and information included in the tour. Our guide was knowledgeable Nd very kind.

Was not excited to go before tour, but after visiting Bath, LaCock Dinner was excellent, and Stonehenge, this was the best day of our stay. Not sure what is was to be inside Stonehenge, but it was a surreal experience.

I loved this tour. I am not a person that enjoys packaged tours. This was the only option that I had to get the inner circle tour of Stonehenge. It was well worth it!! I loved the entire tour. I wish that we had more time in Bath. Once you get into the Baths, there is no time to explore the city or other areas. In addition, I made the choice not to eat in Lacock so that I could explore the Abbey. I highly recommend it. The tour guide was amazing!!!!!

Excellent tour for myself and my family. We were boarded onto a very clean bus that was very plush. The tour guide and driver were so nice and very informative. We had plenty of time to enjoy each part of the tour. The inner circle access was quite amazing and with 50 of us it was not crowded plus we were the only ones there at that time. We booked the afternoon tour so we got to see the sunset. It was amazing! Pay the extra money and do the inner circle tour for the view of a lifetime!!!

The tour of Bath and Inner Circle of Stonehenge is an absolutely wonderful tour. Our tour guide, Carol was well informed and keep the tour on track. As the inner circle part of the tour is after hours Carol made sure the group arrived before closing so everyone had a chance to purchase items for family and friends which was a nice touch.

This was a great experience. The tour guide was fantastic and the ability to tour the stones up close is one for the bucket list for me. Everything ran smoothly and enjoyed every part of the tour.

I would highly recommend the evening inner circle tour of Stonehenge. Our guide was well informed and we even more time than expected to take pictures and walk around. The only issue was having to rush through the gift shop before we left to head for the stones, as it was just about to close, but I don't think that happens on every trip as we had some traffic issues earlier in the day. Both Bath and Lacock were interesting and we had a lovely dinner along the way. Stonehenge was a big check off on my personal bucket list, and I would say if you're going to go spend a little more money and do the inner circle tour. It's well worth it.

I went on a tour with Denise as the guide and Anthony as the driver.

Good: plenty of time at each site (60ish mins at Stonehenge including 40mins at the stones, 60ish mins in Lacock for brunch and exploring, 2ish hours at the Roman Baths/Bath in general). The commentary from Denisa put each site into perspective. Not having to drive was major benefit to me since I visited from the USA. Anthony’s driving skill was mind boggling. Some of those tight turns and narrow streets in the countryside would make me nervous in my car, let alone while driving a large bus. The bus seats (leg room excluded) were plenty wide and comfortable.

Less than good: not much leg room on the bus. I’m 6’1” and my knees were solidly in the seat back in front of me, so that was a bit unpleasant. That being said-I always have that experience on buses.

Overall, I think this tour was a great value. Getting to see Stonehenge with 49 other people was better than seeing it with several hundred-they had us all stay on the outer circle initially so that everyone could get an uninterrupted photo of the stones. Between covering admission to each site and transit-this tour was well worth the price.

It was an early morning start, but afforded a lovely private viewing close up of Stonehenge. The stop at Lacock village was quaint and cute. Would have loved to have a longer stop here to see the abbey. Bath was nice to see but super crowded. The guide was cheerful and gave lots of good tips.
