Journey back in time to discover Stonehenge, probably the most sophisticated stone circle in the world. Our hop-on hop-off tour picks up in Salisbury city centre, Salisbury Railway Station and runs to Old Sarum, through the beautiful Wiltshire countryside to the magnificent, magical henge. Our all inclusive ticket also gives you entry into Salisbury Cathedral and the Magna Carta.

To buses with no air conditioning, unhelpful staff, dangerous driving. You wait in the sun, then the buses are extremely hot inside, the drivers (both of them) try to compensate being late by driving in a frightening way.

Stonehenge may or may not be as thrilling in person as one expects, and the cold wind whips across the plains... but it's certainly a must-see sight. They manage the crowds fairly well, and the visitor center is very well done and informative. Given the...More
