Description
After our central London pickups, we depart for the medieval village of Avebury. Avebury was built and amended over many centuries from about 2850 BC to 2200 BC and is ringed by the largest stone circle in the world. Upon arrival, your tour manager will take you on a walking tour before leaving you for free time to explore this picturesque and historic area.

At approximately 1:30pm, the group will walk up the hillside to West Kennet Long Barrow, a 5000 year old Neolithic burial tomb. You will be taken to the burial side where your guide will take you into the burial chambers and bring its fascinating history alive.

At 3pm, we will arrive at Stonehenge where fast track entry is included. Audio guides are included and available in numerous languages which will give you an in-depth knowledge of the site. You are able to walk around at leisure and at your own pace whilst listening to the audio. You can also enjoy the new £27m visitor centre where you can even view a 5,500 year-old man and enter the Neolithic Houses to discover the tools and objects used in Neolithic life. We will depart Stonehenge and head back to central London for an expected arrival time of 7pm.

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.

Stonehenge and Avebury are amazing places to visit. I really enjoy Avebury. It is a lovely village and you can walk freely around the rocks, sheeps and in the village. I really enjoy that we have sufficient time to enjoy each sites.
