As you arrive at Stonehenge your guide will tell you the facts and theories behind this most famous of Stone Age structures.

Centuries later, in the 1st century A.D. the Romans arrived, calling this place Aqua Sulis. Even later, during the Georgian Era of the 18th century, the rich and wealthy arrived from London to see and be seen and took to the waters to rid themselves of joint stiffness and gout.  Stop for a break in the delightful village of Lacock. Seemingly untouched by modern times, this charming place has been used as a setting in many films, including Cranford, Moll Flanders, Pride and Prejudice, and Harry Potter. Enjoy a guided tour...

What people are saying about The Cotswolds

Fantastic!

Both Jose and Badger (yes his name was Badger), provided us with such a memorable day. Because of the small group size and smaller vehicle, we were able to travel on back roads where even our guide had never been as he has typically done the larger yours (thank you Badger!). There was so much packed in one day, but I wouldn't have crossed off any of the experiences, especially Avebury, which most tours don't travel to. My 9 and 13 year old were able to frolic with sheep and their lambs around the stone circles there. My only disappointment was not having enough time in Lacock to see the Abbey. Next time, I guess!

This was an amazing tour! We close this tour because it included Avebury. Our guide, Rob, was awesome. Our driver, Badger, was awesome too! They both know the countryside well and their expertise sure enhanced the tour. We had a nice sized group of 8. We highly recommend this tour.
