Rising dramatically from the flat land of the surrounding Somerset Levels, the Tor has been a beacon of spirituality since pagan times and still acts as a magnet for people of all beliefs. You will hear the stories and the legends as well as experience the powerful energy and atmosphere of this sacred site. The views from the top are spectacular! At its foot lies The Red Spring where iron-rich, healing water has been drank for millenia. The Chalice Well, a true healing place in this land, is located next door and you are encouraged to drink from the holy well where, a local story tells, the Holy Grail is hidden.

Feedback from 'Magic of Megalithic Ireland' Tour 2013

"I may have initially thought this trip was about rocks and circles (:)), but it turned out to be so much more! I loved the silent moments and the connecting with the ancient spirits" - Amanda King, Australia

"I miss the companionship and joking and play, and deep conversations and constellations, dance, and sacred sites we shared together. And I am taking all this joy with me in my ever expanding heart." - Lottie Cooper, USA

Feedback from 'Megaliths, Gods & Giants Peru & Bolivia' 2016 Tour
with guest host Jim Vieira

"Aloha everyone, Thank you for the trip of a lifetime! Enjoyed the sites, all of you, and the adventure. A hui hou....until we meet again."
- Mona Stevenson, Hawaii

"Thank you all for the fantastic time we had in Peru and Bolivia!"
- Jelle Kolmer, Holland

"Thank you all for a great trip.. Everyone of you added a brilliant insight into this trip for me and I thank you kindly for that. I normally don’t have patience for humans but you all were beautiful in your own light. Once again I thank you for that."
- Seak Kelly, USA

"Hey, Hugh! It was great to meet you and learn so much about ancient mysteries from your vast storehouse of knowledge and insight!"
- Tom McGuire, USA

"The ancient Peru / Bolivia tour hosted jointly by Hidden Inca Tours and Megalithomania answered to all my expectations in every way but one, which it exceeded. I got to see the most important sites for my introduction to ancient megalithic Peru and Bolivia, of which surely Sachsayhuaman and Puma Punku (as part of the Tiahuanaco complex) were personal highlights. The hosts were very informative and also fun to be around. No stuffiness, no boring lecturing and an atmosphere of being among intellectual equals, even though in knowledge and experience our hosts far exceed my level. In general the tour was very well organised and where room for improvement was found and commented on, that input was welcomed and actually implemented expediently. So in all I had a wonderful experience and would recommend this to anyone. Now for the part exceeding my expectations... that was the group dynamics. I admittedly had expected a group of mainly elderly pensionados. Fine for me, a very fit 41 year old, but not thrilling either. But hey, no such thing! The group was actually a wonderfully diverse and blended crew of people from all walks of life, young and older. This made for a truly fun two weeks and lots of conversations on and off topic with views and multifaceted interpretations so diverse as to be almost kaleidoscopic. Open minds. I like! Thank you Irene, Gustavo, Brien, Hugh, Jim, Antonio, Sr. Luis and son, our very skilled bus drivers and of course my fellow Megalithomaniac group. As Arny puts it best: I'll be back! "
- Aaron Karmelk, Holland

"We still can't forget Peru and Bolivia, all the wonderful sites and moments of our great trip. In spite of all the hardships it will remain the most memorable journey of our lives. It was great to meet all of you, to hear your stories and live great moment together. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences with us. Today we would like to wish you all lovely Christmas an much hapiness in the coming year. And of course more fantastic journeys to most mysterious places in the world"
- Hanna and Roland Vandiest, Poland/Belgium

"Hal and I are still missing Peru and especially all the wonderful friends we made along the journey! We're going to have pisco sours instead of egg nog this Christmas and we'll drink a toast to all Megalithomaniacs everywhere. Warmest wishes for a joyous holiday season and looking ahead to more adventures in 2017! "
- Hal and Ro Woodruff, USA

"It felt less like a tour group and more like I had flown in to visit friends who were showing me around their turf, and for me, that was fine. I still feel I got more out of this tour than I would have with any other group. I enjoyed myself to the utmost, and was pleasantly surprised by almost everything - especially the kind people with whom I had the privilege of sharing this time." - Sandy Underwood, USA
