These tours are accompanied by a professional tour guide who is familiar with Stonehenge and properly touring the premises. You have the option to meet your guide at the Stonehenge location or be transported there by bus with your guide. Most tours offer a bus ride with information and then a guided tour to follow once you meet your destination.
If you opt for just the bus tour option, you can expect a fun and knowledge filled bus ride preparing you for your upcoming tour of the Stonehenge area. This bus ride will give you an idea of what Stonehenge used to mean in ancient folklore, what historians believed it to be, and what has been discovered. Expect to be taken back in time with these tours as the guides infiltrate your mind and attempt to have you visualize the construction and potential rituals that were performed on the ground.
Guided Tour on the Grounds
Once you step on the grounds of Stonehenge, you have the ability to self-tour or have a guided tour. If you choose for a guided tour, you should reserve well in advance this prior to coming to England. You can either meet your tour guide on site at Stonehenge or you can do the bus tour first and continue the guided tour as a phase two with the company. If you opt to meet your guided tour on the grounds then you are responsible for your own transportation. Choosing the bus and physical tour of the grounds allows the convenience of transportation and a full experience of Stonehenge. Meeting your guide on the grounds may not allow time for some of the information provided on the bus.
