* A traveler said: "Spent all day with Geoff who was extremely helpful and knowledgable. Toured around the cathedral which Geoff got us into even though it was Easter. Toured around the sights of Salisbury, then out to Stonehenge, Woodhenge and Avebury. All of this was excellent, the information was free-flowing and interesting with Geoff showing his enthusiasm throughout. Lunch was provided in a pub along the way - typical pub grub but very nice. The trip seems very expensive but was well worth the money."
