An amazing spectacle. It's a shame they are behind fences but I understand why. It would have been nice to have been able to walk among them.

We visited with an 18 month old. Had not done a lot of research as expected to learn about the stones at the site so was disappointed to find there is virtually no signage or explanation. Bus/mini-train/Segway tours seemed to be popular but would have been difficult for us with a toddler. However, we had a pleasant walk around part... More

This site is a must visit when in the area, in my opinion it is better than Stonehenge, it's different but better.the number of stones is impressive and the scale of the site, you can get as close as at Stonehenge and there are some viewpoints as well. It is worth doing the coach tour, we were a bit dubious... More

This is something I've wanted to see for a long time. I probably built it up in my head, so at first was a bit disappointed by the site itself. It doesn't jump out at you all at once, but unfolds slowly as you drive or walk past the amazing amount of megaliths that comprise Carnac. In the off season... More

As part of our group tour, we were brought to this historic site. I can confidently say that none of us, all Americans, on the tour had any idea of the existence of these people in the area and at this site. What a treasure and a mystery to this day. We used the mini-train tour. Due to the very... More

You can view the stones from the main car park (toilets open) but we hopped on the Carnac Visio Tour bus; without this trip we would not have realised how widespread the stones are, too far to walk to them all. The bus also drives through the nearby towns - 35 minutes in all, with a good English commentary by... More

I live quite near to Stonehenge in England so a stone megalith is nothing out of the ordinary even having said this I was truly amazed at this place if you're anywhere near you must go and see it. You will certainly regret it later if you don't. I would advise you to go to the local tourist office first... More

It is a pity these megaliths are fenced off but it is nevertheless very pleasant to walk alongside the stones. There are off road walking tracks but you do have to walk along the road some of the way. This is a little unsettling as the foot path is non existent and the road can be quite busy.

The size of Carnacs prehistoric giant Megaliths and the numbers of them. Row after row from Massive to relatively small is breathtaking. All lined up in straight rows. Not that easy to see until you climb the tower to over see them. No toilets until July at 10a.m. so go find a bush. The tiny gift shop is a throw... More
