I am including some recent tours in this section for your information in an informal journal type format which I hope you enjoy reading. They should give you some idea of how our private tours can be fleshed out and individualised.
Stunning weather and great company made for a wonderful half day tracking the Parker Pearson suggested route of the Sarsen Stones from the southern edge of the Marlborough Downs at Clatford to Stonehenge. Sam and Olivia particularly wanted to visit Stonehenge itself but were happy for me to decide how to structure the time...
Having been given a free rein by Adrian and Alan I decided, seeing as they were both young and fit and Alan was training for the London Marathon in 3 months time, that we'd go for a really good hike. Apart from anything else it was the first time I was able to do...
It was a crisp, clear December Monday morning and I picked Mr Williams up in Calne at 9am. We first drove to a viewing point for Windmill Hillwhere we spent a few moments discussing the early Neolithic (the time of the first settler/farmers) and its impact on the area. More time would allow a...
A half day tour with 3 New Yorkers Nat, Martin and Robert celebrating their 50th birthdays (including a NY Nicks and a NY Nets fan – could be ugly!!) We met at dawn! Not too bad on 12th October as it was 7.30am. The weather was cool and misty. The meeting...
We start at Windmill Hill and head down into Avebury. Having had a good look around the henge and stone circles we follow the Herepath east and up on to The Ridgeway. We follow The Ridgeway for a short distance before heading into Fyfield Down with its Sarsen stones including the fascinating 'Polissoir', a...

About The Tours
We will pick you up from your accommodation or arrival point if travelling on the same day or join you if you wish to provide your own transport. We can suggest itineraries but will always tailor each tour to your individual wishes to include the sights you want at an appropriate pace. We can include as much or as little walking as you would like as most of our preferred sites are within easy reach of the road which also means wet weather tours are just as feasible.
The countryside is littered with fascinating prehistoric sites and while visits to Stonehenge and Avebury should be on everyone’s bucket list their story is not complete without exploring the surrounding area. A full day’s tour can include a traditional pub lunch or an equally traditional picnic if weather permits. Half days are also possible.
Please click on the button below for our suggestions but remember we will always personalise your tour so please get in touch and we can go from there.
We recently had a member of the Visit Wiltshire team on a tour around Avebury and you can read her version of the day here.
