Giovanna was great! We would definitely go with her again. She kept us well informed and entertained. Even though the weather was overcast and drizzly, Stonehenge was awesome!

We ended our week-long London visit with this trip into the countryside to view neolithic sites in Wiltshire. Our tour guide, Brendan, was friendly, witty, and knowledgeable. Despite having a blast all week visiting major tourist attractions and seeing plays in the city, my tween daughter declared the walk up to West Kennet Long Barrow to be her favorite activity of the entire trip. She added that she would like to be a tour guide someday, so Brendan absolutely made an impression! Thanks to Anderson Tours for a terrific family outing we will never forget.

Excellent tour guide (Richard) and the driver was a great entertainer which added fun to the day. Avebury was an excellent addition to the day .

A great tour for those who who appreciate the history of the area and want to spend time at both locations. The guide was wonderful as well as the bus driver, both had knowlege of the area and made us feel welcome and not rushed. We had lots of time in both locations but would have loved to have had even more. Avebury is well worth the visit as one can get up close to the stones. The small village within the circle was quaint with a pub, church and hostoric home, it was magical. A surprise visit to an ancient mount burial site was also included. Time provided for food and bsthroom breaks, facilities were good. The only downside would be for individuals with limited mobitlity as one is walking in pastures and up and down small hills, We had a group of abot 12 which was a perfect size as tere were never any delays.

Our guide (Mike) was very knowledgeable, but also very personable and funny. Warning as regards to Avebury: there is a very steep hill you'll need to climb to get the the first Avebury site. On an extremely hot day as it was when my tour happened, this was definitely a problem, though it was still worth it. I had been to Stonehenge previously, so on this visit, the highlight was definitely Avebury. Can't recommend it enough!

This amazing feat of engineering and logistics is nothing less than miraculous! A must see for all of humankind.

If you're interested in prehistory this is a great tour and both sites are easily done in one day. It was my second time visiting Stonehenge--my primary reason for booking the tour was to see Avebury, which is well worth a visit. Some parts of the stone circle were closed due to heavy rains but enough of it was open that it was still worth it. If there had been a full-day trip to Avebury I would have preferred it, as I would have liked even more time to explore. Viator tours are always well organized and a good value with nice buses and tour guides that know their stuff. I've also done the Stonehenge/Windsor/Oxford tour which was a bit of a whirlwind but it was just about right for my then-14 year old.

Went on a super wet and windy day in Feb but very educational and fun for the whole family. Liked Avebury more.

Great tour. So interesting and beautiful scenery. A favorite part of our vacation.

Tour guide was awesome. It was a small group so we all got to ask a lot of questions. At Avebury you can actually walk and touch the stones. Avebury has the only pub in the world inside a stone circle (The Red Lion). Stonehenge was magical.
