Best Stonehenge Tour

Jump to last reply

We had only a short time to visit the Stonehenge. It was imperative that we get to see it. I knew we would have to go with a customized tour. I searched the web and had my travel agent friend working on it diligently. Finally, one evening I had a return from a gentleman named Pat Shelly, with www.salisburyguidedtours.com . He said he would do anything we wanted. All he needed to know was when we'd be there. We told him what time, early on a Saturday morning. He said see you then!

The time came and we arrived at the depot in Salisbury. Mr Shelly had a laminated sign with our name on it, so there was little time searching for each other. We loaded up in his spacious and comfortable van and headed out towards the henge. Now, my nephew and I thought we were going to have a whirlwind tour. Nope. Mr Shelly took us to Woodhinge, the Durrington Wall, Stonehenge, a tour of the thatched roofed homes. We got a driveway view of 'Sting's" country estate and ended it all with a tour of Salisbury Cathedral.

Mr Shelly is a local lad and has worked and is still working with the group who are excavating the phenominon. Mr Shelly expounded in depth the truth and the fiction of the Stonehenge and let us in on a few things to come. Pat knew so much and what we appreciated was that he didn't talk at us, he talked to us, in laymans language. I really wish we could have utilized him for our whole European vacation. Check out his website and be SURE you go to see Stonehenge.Not only is it ceremonial, but it is a magnificent view into humankinds past.
