Le site en lui même est vraiment remarquable et unique. Excursion très bien organisée, le bus était en très bon état, l'accueil est bon. Sur place le parking des bus est à proximité des mini bus pour aller sur le site (ou à pieds) et comme les billets sont déjà prit nous pouvons y aller directement. L'audio guide est intéressant et comme il est téléchargé sur son téléphone j'ai pu revenir sur certaines explications au retour.

Well worth it. We did not want to spend an entire day on a bus to see Windsor or Bath. Out early , back in time for some sightseeing and then dinner. Seats are typical bus seats and not high;y comfortable, but they worked. Trip out and back is pretty boring except for about 30 miles around Stonehenge. Far better than driving and when you factor in the cost o admission, it is worth it. Lovely site once you are there.

It's not organized on site at all. Booked the morning tour and then had to do the afternoon tour because our bus drove away. Since the nice lady said we have to go to stop 3, but it would have been stop 1. But otherwise the tour was great. Recommended

Great day tour! Pepe was an excellent guide. We would have liked to spend a bit more time at Stonehenge, even just 30 min more (we only stayed one hour), but overall we were very happy with this tour.

Highly recommend. Very organized tour and 2 hours is just enough time to see the stones and the exposition. Driver was nice and overall tour has a really fair price.
