Wow! What an absolutely incredible tour. Tor was an amazing guide, he combined historical knowledge and spiritual wisdom perfectly and presented it in a way which was completely fascinating. We learnt so much about Glastonbury, it’s history, the mysticism surrounding it and visited sacred places we would otherwise never have seen. It is really one of the most special places we have ever been and Tor’s ‘The Quest’ tour was just magical and in our opinion, a must for anyone who wants to really understand this sacred place. We would highly recommend anyone visiting Glastonbury to book, you will be so happy you did. We’re already thinking about our next tour with Tor!

This is our second trip to Glastonbury. We love this town full of myth and magic and free spirit. We had a lovely walk round the town and went into lots of shops which sold lots of weird and wonderful items that we love, some items you would not find in your local high street. Marlo was happy to walk through the street and even allowed in all the shops and cafes which was great, very dog friendly and he was admired by so many.

My mother, son, and I had a wonderful 2 day tour with Michael in February of both Glastonbury and Avebury and the ancient stone circles. My 8 year old son is not easily entertained and seemed to be under Michael's magical spell for an entire 8 hour day whilst walking 6 miles in Glastonbury learning about Joseph of Arimathea, Mary Magdelene and King Arthur and the Knights of Templar. He was determined to hike up to St. Michael's tower on the Tor and once accomplishing that goal skipped happily along with Michael playing games along the way. Micheal was a knowledgable tour guide who exercised a saintly amount of patience with my son and our questions which I truly appreciated. To continue our journey in the spirit of the Knights of Templar in the quest to find the holy grail, my mother and I signed up for another 2 day tour in November of Dartmoor and Cornwall, this time with Tor. We were excited to have a different perspective by Tor leading our quest and had the most magical visit in both places. Tor's recommendations for both B&B accommodation and food and drink in Tintagel were spot on and the November weather cooperated! For me, the highlight of the tour was Wistman's Wood in Dartmoor where I went in asking for guidance on my life's purpose and left with a vision that included some life changing information that I plan to put to good use! Merlin's Cave at Tintagel also cannot me missed. Please note, bring Wellies! We did not and had a wonderful adventure however they are advised (the water is very cold barefoot!!). St. Nectan's Glen and the Mother Waterfall was another magical opportunity to look inward discovering the holy grail existing inside ourselves. Tor was patient and kind, engaging, and of course intuitive giving us a first class experience of these sacred sights. Many thanks and we look forward to returning for another tour in the future!

We were looking for more history and specific King Arthur connections. However we did have a good walk through the area with beautiful views and different experiences. Be aware that there are added costs besides just lunch which surprised us because we didn’t see any mention of that in the write up before the tour.

REALLY??!?? This is the third review from the group of Latter Day Saints from Utah. The only three bad reviews I have ever received! Seems like they are trying to sabotage my tours, not very Christian, also making a mockery of TripAdvisor. Good job. I hope your god is happy with you. ❤️🙏

My friend and I did the full day tour of Glastonbury with Michael and had the best day. He was so funny, very patient, went above and beyond and told us all kinds of interesting things. It was so refreshing to find someone so passionate about their work. I truly didn’t want the day to end. Thanks again Michael for making our day so special
