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.

Our family took Pat Shelley's Stonehenge special access tour in July 2014 and the tour was stellar, just as all the other reviews indicate. Pat Shelley has extensive knowledge of these Stones beyond the usual tourist myths and superficial nonsense often purveyed by tour guides. If you wish to experience the Stones, understand their history and archaeological significance, and seek... More

The normal visitor to Stonehenge can only see the stones from a short distance away, but I booked the special inner circle tour at stonehenge-tours.com. This tour visits the stones after hours, and you are allowed to walk in amongst the stones. That’s a very special way to see this attraction, and I would highly recommend it. The tour is... More

Hi Jim_and_Barbie, thanks for your review. It did make me smile. It's great that you highly recommend the tour despite not enjoying large parts of it, which I suppose is a major accolade in its own right. The 'weeds' you refer to are a rare area of grass chalkland found in very few places in the world. The 'mounds of... More

My 16-year-old son and I took Pat Shelley's Stonehenge special access tour in late December. In all of our years of travels on four continents, I don't think we've ever had a better guide. Pat taught us about the context of Stonehenge and its archeological history in ways that my son and I both found fascinating, and he gave us... More

This is the first review I've ever written for someone in my decades of traveling. This past summer, I went to 55 European Cities with my girlfriend and countless tours in each of them. Pat's tour of Stonehenge was by far and away the most memorable of our trip. It was the last day of our adventure and Pat made... More

I took a special access Stonehenge tour by Pat Shelley at Salisbury and Stonehenge Guided Tours. The gravity of being among the stones is a very powerful experience which I don't think can be felt by viewing them from outside the ropes. That much I expected. What exceeded my expectations was the more complete understanding of the site from the... More

After making the decision to visit Stonehenge, the best thing we did was to find a terrific tour guide. Salisbury & Stonehenge Guided Tours with Pat Shelley was well worth the investment. Mr. Shelley is quite knowledgeable about the archeology and history of Stonehenge. He is also personable and warm and made our small group feel comfortable right away. He... More

This bus tour starts with a trip around downtown Salisbury (pronounced "Sawlz-berry"), and then heads out to Stonehenge - the world famous archeological site where huge stone slabs were set up by the indigenous population of England some five thousand years ago (long before even the Celts arrived). The bus takes you to a visitor center, where you then take... More

I have long had a fascination with structures that are built before records were kept. Stonehenge has been high on my list of places to see. Going with Pat Shelly was a truly educational experience that exceeded my wildest expectations. My wife and I did not stop talking about this tour long after it finished. The educational information on finds... More
