After hotel pickup in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan, travel through the English countryside toward the ancient Kingdom of Wessex, to one of England’s most mysterious landmarks. Learn about the mystifying history of Stonehenge as you listen to commentary from your guide.  

Begin the tour at Salisbury Plain, home to Stonehenge. Look out on a landscape scattered with stone circles and burial chambers more than 5,000 years old, and hear theories surrounding the mysterious scene. You'll also have time to stroll the grounds and take photos.

Continue to the small town of Glastonbury, where King Arthur’s sword was reputedly created. Delve into the region’s rich history with your guide and ascend to the summit of Glastonbury Tor to see landmarks such as St. Michael’s Church from the hilltop.

Stroll the Chalice Well Gardens to discover the biblical legends that shroud the enclave and then break for lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). Head to Glastonbury Abbey to pay your respects to King Arthur and Queen Guinevere in their final resting places.

Next, travel to the village of Avebury, home to charming thatched-roof cottages and some of the largest megalithic stone circles in the world. Marvel at these huge monuments that were hauled into place thousands of years ago. Then, relax during the return journey back to London, where the tour concludes.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Stonehenge
Your day begins with a visit to one of the most mysterious sites on Earth, that prehistoric and world-famous stone monument known as Stonehenge. The landscape is peppered with burial chambers and stone circles, each one thousands of years old and shrouded in mysteries, but Stonehenge rises above them all. Located on Salisbury Plain and keeping its 5,000 years of history quite secret, Stonehenge has been described as everything from an astronomical clock to a place of worship or burial. Your guide will explain what is known today and reveal the theories that have been debated for centuries. Ponder these theories as you walk around the stones and admire the scenic views.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Glastonbury Abbey
Your tour continues to the small town of Glastonbury, supposed home of the mysterious isle of Avalon, the place where King Arthur’s sword was forged, according to legend. It was here, after the Battle of Camlann, that a mortally wounded King Arthur died. Stop at the famous Glastonbury Tor (a hill) and view the ruins of St Michael's church. Afterward, descend to the Chalice Well Gardens to learn of an older legend, that of the chalice that Jesus Christ used during the Last Supper. Some say the Holy Grail is buried here in Glastonbury. Continue into town to visit Glastonbury Abbey, the site of Arthur’s and Queen Guinevere's graves, before heading to lunch in one of the local restaurants (own expense).

Chalice Well Garden......and the Pagan Temple
Christie_F
, Mar 2020
We had the best day out ever! Tony was our awesome tour guide and since it was a small group I feel like we got a lot of information and opportunities that we would have missed in a larger group. Prepare yourself for a long day though and there is no way to spend quality time at most of the stops, just to much for one day. We all ended up agreeing to skip Avebury. We would have had to rush through Glastonbury and then drive way out of the way for Avebury and then tack another hour back at least. I would have loved to have gone there but was even happier spending more time in Glastonbury so it was a great choice. The Chalice Garden is the best. So peaceful and beautiful. A do not miss. We had the extra time to walk to the top of the Tor, which was amazing. I can not imagine stopping there and not walking up it. We even had time for a sit down lunch, which was needed. The very, very best part was that Tony knew of a pagan temple that we got to go in......by far the most amazing place ever!!! So glad we had Tony to let us sneak it in. Our driver was awesome and Tony kept us on track and on schedule and had a ton of interesting information. This was my favorite day trip ever. The meeting place was also easy to find. All in all, the best day trip ever.

VERY LONG TRIP
Diana N
, Aug 2019
This rating has nothing to do with the driver/tour guide who was wonderful, but the whole trip. It is a very long day. Most of it driving. Stonehenge is wonderful. I understand why they add on other places since it is a good distance away, but you could just leave off the Avebury stop and spend more time in Glastonbury. I really wanted to stay there longer in fact all the people on the tour except 2 wanted to just stay there. The thing that really irritated me was the two who wanted to go on to Avebury (for the whole 30 mins stop) stayed on the tour van REALLY... This would have been a wonderful trip with just the two stops. I really felt rushed at the stops since the weather was horrible and the traffic was horrible and it was so long.

The Stonehenge visit was in many...
Lois Anne D
, Oct 2017
The Stonehenge visit was in many ways the biggest disappointment of my trip to Great Britain. Not the place itself, but the way the visit was structured. We spent more time waiting in line for the busses to go up to the attraction and to come back that there was very little time to take in the structure itself. Glastonbury was beautiful and seeing the round table was worthwhile. I did expect, however, for the trip to involve more discussion of the Arthurian legends, since this is how the trip was promoted.

The tour guide and driver were great but we didn't get to spend much time at each thing. We almost missed the last stop. I think out of all the stops maybe not stop at the Chalice Gardens....Stonehenge was amazing and I truly enjoyed the Abbey. I just wish we had more time in Winchester. But all in all it was a great day!
