The Stonehenge visit was in many ways the biggest disappointment of my trip to Great Britain. Not the place itself, but the way the visit was structured. We spent more time waiting in line for the busses to go up to the attraction and to come back that there was very little time to take in the structure itself. Glastonbury was beautiful and seeing the round table was worthwhile. I did expect, however, for the trip to involve more discussion of the Arthurian legends, since this is how the trip was promoted.
The tour guide and driver were great but we didn't get to spend much time at each thing. We almost missed the last stop. I think out of all the stops maybe not stop at the Chalice Gardens....Stonehenge was amazing and I truly enjoyed the Abbey. I just wish we had more time in Winchester. But all in all it was a great day!
We had the most amazing,comfortable guide in our entire life traveling. Oliver was extremely knowledgable as well as flexible as to the groups desires. We had scheduled another event immediately after and to be sure we arrived, he walked us to the venue! International Friends were wonderful.
We had a marvelous tour guide named Tony. He was so much fun and hope to see him next time we come to the UK. He was full of information and you only had to ask to get him to tell you more if you were interested. Sad that Avebury was taken off the tour. Winchester was okay but it was just a brief stop to see a table that was thought to be King Arthur's round table but it's not.
I loved Glastonbury! Beautiful area with the Chalice Well, gardens, spring, possible burial place of Arthur and Guinevere and Glastonbury Tor. I loved going into the shops down the street and buying crystals. This was one place that had a multitude of things to see and do that was well worth the time and money. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Stonehenge is always great but not this time. It was so cold and windy I could barely walk around the stones once. Luckily I had already done another tour that week when it was nice and warm.
