The Magical History Tour is not just a means of ransporting you to Stonehenge but also a journey to explore the very soul of the people who have left such a mark on the landscape and in the psyche of today’s visitors. Before reaching the World Heritage Site you will be fully acquainted with the magnitude of the tasks these people undertook. At Old Sarum we stop and admire the fabulous 360 degree views. Originally an Iron-Age Fort, Old Sarum was inhabited by Celts, Romans,Saxons, Vikings and finally Normans. We stop and visit the ruined castle and imagine the chivalrous Knights jousting in the castle grounds, and wenches gossiping by the well….A short drive takes us to Old Harnham Mill close to the spot chosen by John Constable for his iconic painting of Salisbury Cathedral. Set amongst water meadows and away from the City, this is a view seen by too few visitors, which is a pity, because it is simply stunning « less

We had a magical day with Tim! He picked us up right on time at our ship and proceeded to give us the most wonderful tour. He even arranged a speech from the ex- Mayor that was so informative and interesting and just when we needed a cup of hot tea and cookies too! I cannot say enough good things... More

We joined the 1 day Salisbury & Stonehenge tour after we disembarked our cruise ship in Southampton. I had contacted Tim Deacon through email and he always responded very quickly. Our guide/driver, Sebastian was very friendly and knowledgeable. Besides Salisbury & Stonehenge, Sebastian also took us to Durrington Walls, Woodhenge and Old Sarum before he dropped us off at Gatwick... More

My husband arranged for Salisbury, Stonehenge and Sarum Tours to take us to Stonehenge for my birthday. Even though he were calling last minute, Tim worked with him to make sure we were able to take this dream-tour for my special day. We were very lucky to have Sebastian as our driver/guide. He was such a joy to spend the... More

We had a 15 hour layover at Heathrow and didn't want to spend it just at the airport. I found Tim Deacon via the internet and he was extremely helpful and professional in all our dealings with him. He arranged a private day trip for us to Stonehenge and Windsor Castle to fill in the time between our flights. His... More

This tour is a MUST if you want to truly learn about Stonehenge and the surrounding area. We were so very fortunate to have Sebastian as our tour guide. He took us around and pointed out places that we would not have been able to visit without someone with local knowledge. In addition, he explained the "mystery" of Stonehenge and... More

We had an open day in Salisbury and wanted a tour that was a step above the big bus crowd. With Tim Deacon's tour we had exactly that and more. Tim's associate, Sebastian was there at our B and B right on time in a brand new Mercedes sedan, just as promised. Our tour started with Old Sarum and moved... More

Tim was booked the day we needed him so Gary picked us up at the ship in the rain and drove us to Stonehinge. He is very knowledgeable and delightful. After Stonehinge Tim invited us to a presentation about Alsbury by its former mayor who was involved in discoveries that date Alsbury as the oldest town in Great Britian, at... More

Our cruise ship did not offer a shore excursion when we docked at Southampton so I went on the internet to find a tour. There was some apprehension as we had always used the cruise line shore excursions. Tim soon put me at ease and allowed me to design the tour we wanted. We wanted to visit Stonehenge, the Roman...
