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

As we were in Salisbury off season (late October) we were able to get a personalized guided tour. Our guide was wonderful. We learned so much about the entire area and it made for a very rich experience. We came away from the day with a real understanding of not only Stonehenge, but life in this area of England through... More

We booked through this service as a transfer from our hotel in London to the cruise terminal in Southampton. We had never before been to Stonehenge, but we also had time constraints in terms of getting to the terminal, so no form of public transport was an option to us. The result was fantastic. The car was exceptional and comfortable.... More

I took this tour early in December and it was wonderful. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. They picked me up at my hotel in Southampton, and we drove through the New Forrest on the way to Salisbury. The history is fascinating and amazing to see everything.

Tim is much much more than a driver...his tour was personal, authentic and filled with both local and historical knowledge. After a long, tiring flight,Tim made our afternoon relaxing and brought us to the areas we expected and added a few more we were grateful to see...highly recommend the service.

We spent a full day with our tour guide, Geoff. The van was comfortable and the tour was fascinating and hit some beautiful sights. We went to Salisbury, Old Sarum and Stone Henge and hit several interesting stops in between. We were a family of 4 (Two teenaged boys) and all of us had a great time! Thanks, Geoff!
