It was a great day and Alex was such a knowledgeable and professional guide. Our highlight was Stonehenge. We recommend this trip to anyone who wants to spend the day in the English countryside and visit some truly remarkable historical sights.

Excellent trip - the guide Kevin was great - thorough knowledge of history and interesting stories. There was enough time built in at all sites, considering the time and schedule. Would rebook with this group. But they are serious about leaving on time in order to maintain a schedule- we did have to leave some people behind at one site.

Having a licensed tour guide makes all the difference because he shared a lot of great notes on each area, and he really went out of his way to please the guests.

Andy Jackson was our tour guide and what a truly great historian he is! He puts history into context with other concurrent events and adds really quirky and interesting facts that are fascinating. He's a great storyteller. The tour was comfortable (if a bit long), and the sites were exciting.
