Owner description: 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

We took the half day tour of the Salisbury from Bath. Our guide was very knowledgable as he introduced us to lots of secrets and historical tidbits about the places on out way. He had chance to view old thatched cottages around Salisbury country side. We also had a chance to see amazing Caen Hill Locks.

My wife and I were in London for a few days celebrating our "babymoon". We wanted to go to Stonehenge, Bath and Windsor Castle. I spent a few hours doing research on tour companies and was actually referred to Salisbury by another tour company that couldn't pick us up from London.

Scott (owner) arranged a car and driver for us. While in London we kept an eye on the weather forecast, as some bad weather was coming in. Scott was very responsive to us and at the last minute helped to change the day of our trip so we can avoid bad weather. Kudos to Scott!

We were picked up promptly in London by Mark. He knew the areas well and was a pleasure to spend the day with. We made it to most of the areas we wanted to see, but we had underestimated how long we wanted to stay in Bath and never made it to Windsor Castle. Now we have another trip to plan in the future. We had a really great day and highly recommend Salisbury Tours. We will be coming back.

My boyfriend and I were in Salisbury at the end of August and one of our best days there was the Magical History Tour with Chris. He was such a great guide: knowledgeable, engaging, and funny! We loved the drive from Salisbury to Stonehenge, getting to see the thatched cottages and countryside. Stonehenge was fascinating but it was made even more so by the history and stories Chris shared on our trip there. He gave us so much insight into the people that lived in the area and their culture that it made the site that much more intriguing. We also loved learning more about Salisbury and the surrounding area, including the crop circles and fun pop culture trivia. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour; it helped to make our first trip to England a magical one. Thanks, Chris!

Chris picked up our group of 5 at 8 am at our Southhampton hotel and our day was jam packed right up till he dropped us off at our ship, late afternoon. We all loved Chris's style and humor while showing us the best of this beautiful area. he took us through the New Forest with some interesting stops along the way, then on to the Stonehenge site. His stories about possibilities of how Stonehenge was built were fabulous and informative and we found that Stonehenge did not disappoint-SO happy to have seen this mystical site! Chris also took us to Old Sarum and then on to salisbury and the stunning cathedral there. He deposyed us and our huge luggage to our ship right in time to sail. it was truly a great day for all of us and Chris was very concerned about our comfort and interests. By the end of the day, we felt that Chris was a friend . Chris, I hope that if you come over to the US, you will contact me because we'd love to return the favor of showing you the Hilton Head/Savannah area! Cheers.
