We had a great visit to Stonehenge, Avebury, the Wiltshire museum and the West Kennet chamber tomb guided by Laurence who was very knowledgeable and well informed about all the places we visited. He picked us up at our hotel, did not hesitate to find solutions when the rain pelted down (in February), and came prepared with wellies and a car seat. Needless to say, he was also friendly, patient with my boys, adapted the trip as necessary due to roadworks and high water, and made our outing a memorable one. I highly recommend the experience!!

Laurence was absolutely wonderful. Taking this tour was the highlight of our entire trip to England and Paris. He was fully prepared with wellington boots for us to use to cross a little river to see a burial mound, he had a couple extra ponchos and jackets for us to use. The two weeks we were on this trip we had wonderful weather... but that day with Laurence it poured and was super windy. 3 out of 4 umbrellas were torn to pieces from the weather.... but we still went walking around all the Avebury stones and around Stonehenge. We were soaked. And he was lovely to my niece and nephew on the trip. I have family that planes on going to England soon and would recommend Laurence in a sec.

I had a wonderful time on this tour. Laurence has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the Monolithic sites throughout Wiltshire, England. I highly recommend this tour. You won't be disappointed!
