For those visitors to Salisbury either for the day or longer, we offer our "Magical History Tour" to Stonehenge. The Magical History Tour is not just a means of transporting 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

Wonderful guided tour of Salisbury and surrounding areas. Our driver/guide Sebastian is one of the best I have ever had. He provided a historical perspective with lots of fun tidbits included. I highly recommend the Magical History Tour as you get such a good overview of the entire area and its history. As I travel solo frequently, I would also... More

We spent an exciting day exploring Salisbury and the many historical sites in the area. We had originally signed up to do a half day tour, but when I realized how much the Wiltshire region had to share I was able to add on more. Our tour guide, Sebastian, was extraordinary! He has extensive knowledge of the various sites we... More

This is the BEST WAY to experience the sites around Salisbury. Our guide picked us up at the B&B, and we spent all day visiting Old Sarum, Stonehenge, Woodhenge, Avebury Circle, and the Longbarrow. Along the back roads, he shared the views of the countryside, including thatched roof homes, Sting's house, and the White Horse. We even saw a fresh... More

Great beginning to our two week holiday! This tour was a last minute request by us, and Tim went above and beyond to make sure he was able to arrange it for us. Sebastian, our guide, was so well informed of all sites he brought us to. An absolute joy, and to be treated like royalty by the a company... More

Tim and his staff are excellent. From picking me up at Heathrow to taking our group to numerous historical site, my experience was first class. Tim is not only a very pleasant individual, he is also quite knowledgeable about all of the venues we saw. From Stonehenge to Amesbury to the Roman Baths, I was never lacking. Please do not... More

Took us to several sites including Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral and Amesbury. Also expert on providing additional information/history on everything. Would recommend them to anyone making a trip to... More

It was less than a week before our British Isle cruise with Princess on July 10th, we contacted Tim Deacon to arrange a private tour of Salisbury and Stonehenge. With less than 24 hour notice, Tim arranged the tour for July 10th morning. Mark our guide and the driver picked us up sharply in his E Class Mercedes Benz sedan... More

We recently cruised the British Isles and came in a day early. Sebastian was waiting at Heathrow with a big smile and took us on the most wonderful day of touring en route to Southampton. He took us to Stonehenge, the Cathedral and Magna Carta and Salisbury. We had a wonderful lunch at the Stonehenge Inn and sightseeing en route... More

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
