Feedback from 'Mysteries of England' Tour 2019

"Hugh and JJ, you were great host and never failed to create an exciting atmosphere at every megalithic site we visited each day. The bar is set pretty high now for all future gatherings! I would like to send a special heartfelt Thank You to everyone of you for the kindness and love you showed to my Mom!! She has been grinning from ear to ear every time I look at her and has been telling every person she talks to about how wonderful of a time she had this week. You are all truly amazing people. Thank you so much!!"
- Michael Williams, USA

"Thank you for sharing your knowledge about ancient sites in England. The tour exceeded my expectations in all respects. I appreciate that fact that you took us to ancient sites that everyone is familiar with and several other sites that are less well-known as they were all stunning and intriguing even if we had to tip-toe through a few cow patties. I truly enjoyed the additional knowledge provided by your guest speakers as well, especially the opportunity to learn a new hobby (dowsing). Experiencing ancient stone circles, burial mounds, and recent crop circles in person is a profound experience I will never forget. Everyone in our group made every day fun and downright out-of-this-world. I hope to see you soon on another Megalithomania tour in the near future".
- Melinda Terry, USA

"First THANK YOU for an amazing tour!!! We are a bit sad of course that we missed 2 days out of 5. But we will come back. Thank you for all your care and explanations and organisation! We really loved it!"
- Lu Ka and Ginger, Slovenia & China

"Thanks Hugh & JJ for a wonderful experience. I did not know what to expect when I signed up – but I am sure glad I did. You took great care of us, and not only did you plan an amazing tour with visits to many varied interesting sights, you also were flexible and willing to go the extra mile and add additional site visits (i.e. crop circles) when the opportunity to do so arose. I appreciated the knowledge of the guest speakers who joined us at specific sites, and also really enjoyed my fellow tour group members – they were the icing on the cake – a great and fun group of people! Thanks again.
Kathy Mannion, USA

Feedback from 'Mysteries of England' Tour 2018

The tour exceeded the description and my expectations. Hugh explains in a fun, easeful way all the Megalithocal structures while leaving room for your own interpretations. The tour expanded my heart and mind!"
- Christine Angel, USA

"This past summer my wife and l went on the Mysteries of England Tour and it was simply incredible. The megalithic sites not only captivate you, but they are revealed to you in a whole new light. At each spot, you can feel the energies that drew the ancients to these places, and you begin to understand that these were not primitive peoples, but sophisticated in their understanding of the Earth, the stars, and how we are all connected by powerful forces both seen and unseen. I hope l can take this tour again. It is by far the best adventure in England you will ever take."
- Shane Williams, USA

"Thanks so much for the fantastic tour. It really was a lot of fun."
- Pamela Williams, USA

"Just to say that the Mysteries of England Tour that I’ve just taken with you was a real blast. It was non-stop from start to finish and interesting, thought provoking and fun. I’m still having to take it all in. Plus, you really put a lot of effort into making sure that everyone got out of the tour what they wanted to get out of it and were prepared to give up your time freely to the people on the tour. You really went above and beyond."
- Clive Maxwell Yates, UK

"I sure enjoyed our England tour. Wow, so much packed into the week! You ordered the perfect weather, kept the queues to a minimum and did an awesome job avoiding the crowds! :-) I appreciate your arranging for our local guides Shaun Kirwan and Maria Wheatley -- and others that just showed up. I so enjoyed you and Jj, your patience and willingness to repeat yourself to all of us as we spread out and explored the stones and energy. I especially enjoyed the dowsing, and I'm going to get dowsing rods (mine melted in the 2011 wildfire). Thanks for all the coaching and help learning all that. AND I so enjoyed the drone so we could experience the crop circles, Cerne giant and Huffington dragon/horse."
- Marie Louise Hadden, USA

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

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

"What a phenomenal adventure! I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the trip, the fascinating people I met along the way and of course the country. Meticulous attention to detail in the planning of each days itinerary and accommodation and of course the local wisdom of Gustavo to top it off. The ability to share in some "off the beaten track" sites was the cherry on the top. A HUGE thank you to Brien, Hugh, Andrew and Gustavo as well as Irene of course for making it such a memorable trip. For anyone considering this tour - stop considering and just do it!!" - Kurt B, USA

Feedback from 'Portals of Ancient Peru & Bolivia' 2014 Tour with guest host Freddy Silva

So thank you all for putting together such a memorable tour. Great menu, interesting and fun crowd of fellow travellers. Good places to stay. Great stuff!"
- Lyn de Trense, England

"I want to once again thank Brien, Hugh, Irene, and Gustavo for this great tour. It definitely exceeded my expectations.

- Garrett Leo, USA

We learnt so much and feel truely grateful for what was revealed to us, and to all the organisers, especially Hugh & Brien, for putting together such a memorable and stimulating tour. It was also a joy to be in the company of so many like minded people with a deep curiosity about the ancient ancestors"

"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
