The new visitor centre helps, but the shear volume of visitors makes a visit a shuffle around with the flow of the crowd. The buses to and from the stones from the visitor centre were full to overflowing with lots standing as well. Personally I much prefer Avebury which is a lot bigger and I feel a lot more impressive... More

We were a group of 4 retired lads combining a visit to the Stonehenge site with some walking on the Wessex Ridgeway. Having found Pats name online and in Mike Parker Pearsons brilliant book on the new discoveries of the Stonehenge site , I booked Pat for a tour.The weather was freezing but all four of us had a brilliant...

Make time in your schedule and experience Stonehenge and the surrounding area with Pat Shelley, one of the leading authorities on the stones. Having visited the stones many times before, after 4 hours with Pat I came away with a much deeper understanding and much greater appreciation than I thought possible. A great afternoon, thanks Pat.

I had the good fortune of visiting England this past September and wanted to see Stonehenge. I am so glad I spent the time and money to see the stones close up and learn the amazing discoveries that Pat Shelley shared with us. Pat gave an awesome, in-depth tour of Stonehenge and the surrounding sites. He was so warm, friendly,... More

Hi RR. Many thanks for your great review. I'm glad you enjoyed the day and I hope you are able to join us again sometime. It is very different now as there is a new visitor centre about 1.2 miles away, but we still approach Stonehenge on foot on my tour. Kind Regards, Pat More

Living in Salisbury as I do, I have been up to Stonehenge many times, particularly when people come to visit and want to see the local sights. However, I have been disappointed with the experience and increasingly slipped into a negative attitude towards the site. Fast forward to early December 2013 and a trip to the Stones with Pat. First... More

Having lived within spitting distance of the stones for so long, I was really pleased to be able to go on one of Pat's tours. Why didn't I do it long ago? If you want the full " Stonehenge experience", then Pat's guided tour is a must. Highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic, he presents the stones in a warm, friendly and... More

The place has a strange energy to it. Besides the mystery that surrounds the giant stones, the air there is diferrent as if there's something in it. Everyone has seen the pictures, but they don't convey the sense of wonder you get when you stand near that giant monument to humanity. I was also surprised by the flocks of crows... More

Our after hours sunset tour of Stonehenge was amazing and a definite highlight of our UK trip. Pat's knowledge of Stonehenge and the area is unbelievable, he bought it all to life. We highly recommend this tour, you wont be disappointed.

Pat is Mr. Stonehenge. I was ill on the day of the tour. I felt really sick and was thinking of not even going. Pat came and picked us early in the morning at our hotel, and from the start was really supportive and he kept that up by managing me perfectly throughout the day. Not Mother Hen-ish, but just...
