Private Viewing of Stonehenge including Bath and Lacock

After my son and I traveled across the pond to England, it was well worth it to get up extra early to catch the 'Sunrise Tour'. Our tour guide was professional, well informed and very interactive. Although the arrival at Stonehenge was not exactly at sunrise, the rising sun still made an incredible effect on our photos. Best part was walking among the stones with such a small group, we got more than enough time to take pictures, many looking like no one else was there. We even took a bunch of extreme close ups of all the weathering in the stones.
Leaving Stonehenge, we saw the growing line to get in, after the stones are roped off. Incidentally, the ropes are very far away from the stones. Also, the Gift Shop is open early, contrary to prior reviews that it would be closed for the early morning tour.

Absolutely fabulous experience of being the group at Stonehenge at dawn and watching the sun rise - although a bit cloudy and with misty rain - this only added to the historic feeling as one could imagine the Druids emerging from the mists to perform a ceremony.. Stonehenge tour guides/custodians great sources of advice and information while keeping a wary eye to ensure that therules are adhered to and that Stonehenge will be there in its present state for future generations. Highlight was a successful wedding proposal between a young couple from our bus in the middle of Stonehenge.Tour guide Jason gave a very informed presentation about Stonehenge and it's history on the way there. He kept everyone informed all day about coming attractions and ensured that everyone knew time and place of pickups so we were able to keep on schedule. Fine English breakfast in the village of Lacock with time left over for a look around the village.
On to Bath and its Roman Baths - here we were given free reign and able to explore the Baths at our own pace and marvel at the engineering works that the Romans caried out.
Would have loved to had more time exploring the city of Bath but realise that time is limited.

This was worth the extra money and worth waking up at 0400! You arrive at Stonehenge before anyone else, which was nice that you didn't have to.share it with a ton of people. And the fact that "normal tour and visitor" can not walk in/through/around stand next to the stones. They are roped off and have to keep their distance. If you have always want to go pick this tour and get a once in a lifetime opportunity to stand inside the circle!

We did the sunset tour of Stonehenge. The guide was great, he took time to take everyone's picture. Roman bath was great plenty of time to explore. Lacock was so cool too.This was a life experience I will never forget. Thank you.

This is simply the BEST tour of Stonehenge. David was our guide and Addi was our driver. David was fantastic in every location - knowledgeable, helpful, and enthusiastic. Stonehenge at dusk was magical, and having them all to ourselves made it even more so, I can't recommend this trip - and David!!! - enough!
