Great trip! But the guide talked more about New Age stuff and aliens more than the actual history and study of the sites, particularly with the West Kennet Long Barrow. When we went into the barrow, he brought out a random crystal on a chain to show us how it “moves” when your inside the barrow. I asked him about the burial practices, and he gave me a random answer about Roman gods (so weird). Worst part - driving back, he break-checked another car for honking at him. My wife’s bad knee jammed into the seat in front of us during the break-check.

I thought it was good! The tour guide was fun, I think her name was Penny and she actually knew quite a bit of facts about the sites we went to. When we got to Avebury, I wasn't really sure what to do, it would have been nice to get more information on Avebury before getting there, because it's not a well known place.

Wasn't really a small group tour. The driver offered lots of interesting insights on the drive. At the first stop, West Kennet Long Barrow, he gave some up front info and then released everyone to move at their own pace. He offered a tour of Avebury; however, since we were running 30 minutes late on the tour because 2 people arrived 30 minutes late at the start, we opted out of the tour to eat lunch first (as we were warned that the only place for food took a long time and if we went on the tour we might be short on time to eat and we had a 6 & 12 year old). There was no guided tour at Stonehenge. So, not really a guided tour through and through. That being said, we still enjoyed it.
