What a marvelous trip! Orkney has more of the most ancient sites of habitation in Scotland, so that's where Mary took me. However, she stopped at any site I wanted to see as she drove along. With her degree in archaeology, she is an expert on all of them. She gave me knowledgeable facts and explanations in a conversational way, and we visited a great number of sites. Mary is a super driver, knows the ferry schedules and is pleasant company, as well. She is flexible and wants her guests to "have a blast", which I did. Dependable, thoughtful, adventuresome and easy-going, she made the trip an excellent adventure. Staying at the Mill of Eyrland and spending time with its inkeeper, Morag, as well as her friends, was delightful. I could not have hoped for a better trip, and I am hoping to take a similar one to the ancient sites of Ireland next year. This time I would not hesitate to send her a wire transfer ahead of time, since she had so much difficulty with my US bank's cashier checks and British bank regulations. Mary is a trustworthy friend and a great gal! Cheers!

Our tour of SW England in June 2019 was a highlight of our extended overseas trip from NZ. Mary drove us to very interesting sites and also arranged charming historic B&B’s that we would never have found on our own. We really appreciated her knowledge and flexibility which meant we increased our understanding of our ancestors going back into pre-historic times. Many thanks for a most enjoyable experience. Phil & Pam (NZ)

Mary provided a tour for myself and a friend on a custom-tailored trip around Pembrokeshire, Wales over the course of a week. Along the way, she knew every site and answered every question. Besides an incredibly deep knowledge of the history of each site, she brings an enthusiasm that makes it impossible to not have fun. At each leg of our tour she went above and beyond to make sure to accommodate our every need. By the end of our trip, Mary was part of our group and we were sad to have to leave her. I cannot recommend this enough and will DEFINITELY be repeat customers.

I spent 6 days with Mary exploring the archaeological sites of Devon and Cornwall. Mary does not have tour dates etc on her web site, as all her tours are individually tailored. As such, she had designed my tour to include archaeology sites and others which were of interest to me, eg the Lost Gardens of Heligon. Mary is extremely knowledgeable about the ancient remains and was able to explain current knowledge about their use and purpose. She was also able to take me to some of the more out or the way places which was a bonus. She organised everything, booking me into character b&b's, farmstays and pubs and I felt I had the real English country experience. It was a lot of fun travelling with Mary, it was like tootling around the countryside with a long lost friend and I would highly recommend her.

It's been the first time we've booked a tour with Mary and we'll never forget it! Mary was funtastic (funny and fantastic!) and she arranged a very beautiful 7 days tour following our preferences! She was very very very enthusiastic and the things she said were always interesting and intelligent. We travelled around Cornwall and Mary showed us so many amazing archaeological spots.... We highly recommend Archaeotours, especially in the company of the wonderful Mary! Thank you, Mary, for making this experience unique. We are looking forward to coming back to the UK for another magic experience with you!
