This is NOT a drive-by tour. It lasted approximately five hours, including several nearby sites directly related to Stonehenge. The guide, Pat Shelley, has taken part in the most recent digs in the area, and knows his material inside out. Participants learn about where the people who built Stonehenge lived by visiting barrows and henges in the area. There is... More

My third visit to Stonehenge was definitely the best. If you've been there before and were disappointed, know that the visitors' center has been greatly improved in terms of comfort, aesthetics, and information. However, what made this visit so special was the guide we chose to take us to the historical areas surrounding and related to Stonehenge and finally inside... More

If we could give Pat's tour more stars, we would!!! Our group was about 20 and Pat did a wonderful job of keeping the tour intimate and giving us a better understanding of the stone/bronze age sites related to Stonehenge, finishing with the awesome experience of being inside Stonehenge as sunset approached. Getting out into the middle of these sites... More

In July of this year my wife and I went on a Pat Shelley Stonehenge Tour. On hindsight a great decision. Tour covered a lot of ground without being rushed. Really told the story of Stonehenge and we had the actual enclosure just for our small group. For once I had no suggestions for how the tour could have been... More

My family and I (two adults, one teenager, and one 11-year old) took the Pat Shelley's guided tour. We all all had an amazing time. The tour includes stops at various stone age sites--Woodhenge, burial mounds--before ending at Stonehenge itself. The tour really gives the background and context of Stonehenge. We all felt we understood the site better than the... More

The absolute highlight of Pat Shelley's Special Access Tour was being within the Stonehenge circle after hours. Daily public visits are now limited to the perimeter only. The tour itinerary mentioned visiting other sights like Woodhenge, the Cursus and burial barrows, but we did not fully comprehend that this would be half of the evening, although a lot of surrounding...

We went to Salisbury without much knowledge of the Stonehenge and were looking forward to the guided tour. We were not disappointed for one moment. Our guide Pat is charismatic and knowledgeable. He planned the walk in such a way that we were engaged the whole time with the "stories" that he told us. The monuments we were guided to... More

This was a terrific experience. Our tour guide (I think his name is Pat) was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was nice to put Stonehenge in its historical and geographical perspective by seeing other Neolithic sites, and the display of the Magna Carta in the Salisbury Cathedral is well done. (As our guide recommended, that is also the place to... More

Pat Shelley's special access tour is something I'll remember for the rest of my life. It's well organized, very informative, and entertaining also! Being inside the fence at Stonehenge is not to be missed. I'd definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to visit Stonehenge.

We arranged our Stonehenge Special Access early morning tour through Andersons tours. It was arranged that we would be picked up at 4:45am from a bus stop near Kings Cross Station. We arrived early but could not find the bus stop as there were building works nearby but luckily the bus driver made a special effort walking down the road... More
