The Small Group Tour Difference

On this tour you will be travelling with no more than 16 other people - guaranteed! Our purpose-built minibuses have large windows, good air circulation and clear PA systems so that your professional guide can escort you comfortably through our wonderful countryside.


The small group size means you are not subjected to long hotel pick-up journeys around London and as a small group the guide can offer a more personalised guiding service. So don't hang back, ask your questions and you'll be helping the guide tune their commentaries to the interest of the group on board that day, every group is different!

Another advantage of a small bus is we can go places the big tours cannot and wherever possible we'll head off down a country lane to to show some hidden gem.

Stonehenge, Glastonbury & Avebury Tour - What To Expect

Stonehenge

We leave London behind and head west to the rolling chalk hills of Wiltshire, here on windswept Salisbury Plain the great, mysterious Neolithic circle of Stonehenge stands high on the horizon.

Our first stop of the day will give you a chance to learn more about this monument, of its builders and those that worshipped there.

There are many unanswered questions and many more theories and ideas that are open to debate, your guide will explain what is known and what may never be known and then leave you to explore and ponder its awe inspiring presence.

King Arthur's Tomb Glastonbury Abbey

King Arthur's Tomb Glastonbury Abbey

Glastonbury

Onwards to Isle of Avalon, through backroads of villages built of flint and thatch, from chalk downland into rolling limestone hills to Glastonbury Tor where legend tells us Arthur was brought after being mortally wounded in battle.

We climb to the top to visit the ruined church of St Michael and admire the view of England's West Country laid out like a carpet below.

In the ruins of the once great Glastonbury Abbey we find the gravesite of Arthur and learn of older legends like that of Joseph of Aramathea, the Holy Grail and the Crown of Thorns.

After exploring the unique shops in the town we head over to the Chalice Well Avebury Gardens, drink from the spring and learn of the fate of the holy chalice from the Last Supper.

Avebury

We end the day at the stone circle complex at Avebury. A collection of standing stones much larger than that of Stonehenge.

Our guide will also reveal many other Neolithic sites in the area such as enigmatic Silbury Hill (Europe's tallest prehistoric structure), the Devil's chair and the Barber-Surgeon stone.

Its now late afternoon and time to head back to London 2 hours away.
