We had an amazing experience touring the Avebury Stones and visiting Stonehenge. Daniel was friendly, engaging and a great story teller. The also included the White Horses and the West Kennett Long Barrow tomb. Daniel made this tour memorable for all of us. We had all looked forward to finally seeing Stonehenge.

I would give Daniel a 6 out of 5! I had been fascinated by Stonehenge since I was a kid, and seeing it was always high on my list. I only recently became aware of the stones at Avebury when planning my trip to Stonehenge, and figured it would be interesting to see those as well. Daniel's tour seemed to fit the bill, so my wife and I hired him for the day. Daniel provided us with a fun, extremely memorable day! He picked us up in a very comfortable van, and toured us around via the backroads through numerous small, picturesque off the beaten track villages to our various destinations. He was extremely knowledgeable and really made the subject matter come alive. It was a fantastic tour, and I would highly recommend it.
