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 on request, and in addition to our scheduled tours for 2016/2017 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 and schedules.
