Labyrinthos Tour Guide Services
Whether you are planning a personal pilgrimage or a grand tour of labyrinths and
other sacred sites, we offer services to help you make the most of your journey...
Led by Jeff and Kimberly Saward, our tours focus on more remote destinations and
generally avoid sightseeing in large cities to which you can easily return on your
own. Much of our travel is off the beaten path and, whenever possible, our accommodation
is in private homes, converted farmhouses, inns and small family hotels. We will
plan the routes and book accommodation, transportation, etc. We like to think that
travelling with us is a unique adventure - no two tours will ever be exactly the
same. Read some experiences of previous travellers on our tours.
Each of our tours includes a visit to at least a few labyrinths, often many more;
indeed, the labyrinthine course of the journey is at the heart of our travel ethos.
Our guided tours are small and personal; most are limited to six people because we
believe these sites are best visited in small groups. This allows us to travel in
one vehicle so we can talk about what we're seeing and our experience of the journey.
We hope you'll consider these tours pilgrimages. Traditionally, pilgrims prepare
well, pack light, and travel together as a community, learning from each other along
the way. For our part, we plan our journeys carefully, but remain flexible to take
advantage of the synchronicity and opportunity that occurs as we travel.
Our signature English Turf Labyrinth Tour runs most years, and in addition to our
scheduled tours for 2013, listed below, we also offer occasional tours on request
to a number of unusual labyrinthine locations. We are also available as guides for
personalized tours that highlight your special interests, for those who want to travel
to other places or at other times. This is suitable for small groups of 3-5 people.
Contact us about scheduling private tours to highlight particular interests or fit
specific schedules. We are also available for short one or two day private tours
of the historic labyrinths in Southern England - ideal if you are in London and want
a see a few labyrinths during your time in England.
Pricing for these guided tours is dependant on group size and accommodation options.
Contact us for further details, pricing guides and suggestions for travel connections,
etc. Starting and finishing points can often be tailored to fit your existing plans
On a special extended version of our regular tour, we will go in search of standing
stones, burial cairns, Celtic crosses and prehistoric rock art in the beautiful setting
of Argyll and the Inner Hebrides, with a visit to the sacred island of Iona. Then
onwards to the Outer Hebrides to visit the remarkable stone circle at Callanish and
other monuments on these remote islands off the north-west coast. Our tour then heads
to the Orkney Islands, to visit Maeshow, Skara Brae and the stones and circles at
Stenness and Brodgar, before returning to Glasgow via Inverness and Loch Ness. Travelling
around the time of midsummer, we will look for sunset alignments and make the most
of the long days and short nights. This unique pilgrimage tour will visit some of
the most exciting, and remote, monuments and sacred sites on the western and northern
coasts of Scotland.
