Hi. My name is Pat Shelley and I provide tours in and around the Stonehenge area. I take you on an exploration of the many sites which help to explain what Stonehenge may have been about across some beautiful countryside. Many people come back again with other members of their family or on the recommendation of friends. We can help out with transfers and travel arrangements to make your travel plans as smooth as possible. I look forward to meeting you.

this is a comprehensive tour of the area around Stonehenge that provides information not only on the specific Stonehenge site but also on the history around it and the theories for its existence. Mr Shelley is very knowledgeable and very good presenter

"We didn't see any of that. I understand Stonehenge a lot better now." That is what two people said to me on the train back to London from Stonehenge/Salisbury after I detailed what I learned that day. I had seen Stonehenge with archaeologist Pat Shelley. They did not. I feel very fortunate to have read a TripAdvisor posting saying that... More

This tour with Pat Shelley was absolutely fabulous! He really gets you into the whole romance of the landscape and the mystery behind the Henges. It was a privilege to be able to see Stonehenge this way!

Our family toured Stonehenge with Pat Shelley in August 2015. I can't recommend this tour highly enough. What impressed me so much was Pat's dedication to accuracy (rather than fanciful speculation) and a truly academic appreciation of the field of archaeology. At the same time, the knowledge he passed along was approachable, interesting, and rich. We had so much fun!... More

Pat Shelley is a fount of information on Stonehenge and its history. If you pass on his tour, you will not get the full picture of Stonehenge and will simply see some interesting stones. Well worth the cost as the tour made Stonehenge a highlight of our vacation in Great Britain.

Pat Shelley guides these "special access" tours of Stonehenge that allow his small groups to enter beyond the roped off areas of Stonehenge to walk among (but not touch!) the stones. The 5-hour walking-intensive tour is much more than seeing the site. Pat, who has worked on some of the archaeological digs of Stonehenge and the surrounding areas - has... More

Hi whitehatgirl, thanks for your great review and so glad you enjoyed the tour. The advice on always wearing or at least taking something warm to wear is important as the temperature can drop quite quickly as the sun goes down. Tours certainly do book up quickly as well. Hope to meet you again some time. Kind Regards, Pat More

The passion displayed by Pat for his tour is worth the cost alone. His knowledge is presented in a clear and concise manner with plenty of time for questions. I did the sunrise tour this morning and can only say that it was an experience of a lifetime. It gives a sense of the enormity of Stonehenge, putting the "pile... More

Hi Chris S, thanks for writing a review so quickly after the tour and glad you enjoyed it. Sometimes it can be difficult being passionate about a place so early in the morning (we left Salisbury at 5.30 am) but Stonehenge and its landscape never ceases to amaze me even after several years of guiding. It was great to meet... More

Stonehenge in its full context ( woodhenge , durrington wall , cursus and barrows ) made alive by Pat's comments always to the point. We were blessed with a beautiful sun set in the circle and it added to the feeling there ! We visited Avebury and stonehenge alone also and Pat is really making a difference. .

It's apparently typically UK to trapp and cheat tourist to ask to pay a lot for something free of charge or less expensive in export (see my review of Harrods). Here be careful dont pay for extra charges asked to visit the Cathedral of Salisbury (no need to pay cause it's a cathedral and it's free entrance of course) but... More

Hi. If you're reading this wondering what is going on - don't worry this person did not do a tour with me. They took the cheaper option and this is the result. Trip Advisor has contacted the person, but both have decided to leave it on so this is my right to reply. Poor Chris_Orleans took the bus up to... More
