    What to Expect
    Begin your day with a guided walk across Avalon, be transported back 2000 years through the mists, to a time of magic, myths and legends, a time when the family of Christ arrived to these shores of Avalon. Stand next to the Holy Thorn Tree which grew from the staff given to Joseph of Arimathea, by Jesus himself. He planted the staff as a symbol of the birth of a new way, the early Christian way, and worked with the Pagans and Druids who had used the ancient Isle of Avalon as a site for spiritual initiation for thousands of years.

    Then be guided, via the hidden chapel of St Margret, to the site of the Wattle Church in the centre of the Glastonbury Abbey. The Wattle Church is England’s first ever building for Christian worship, built by Mary Magdalene and Joseph of Arimathea in 62AD. A few steps away we find the last resting place of King Arthur and Gwynevere and find out why it is there and how they are linked to the family of Christ. The windows within St Johns church perfectly paint a picture of the hidden stories of old.

    After lunch we go on our quest for the Holy Grail, said to be buried under the Chalice Well. Find out why these waters in this tranquil garden are said to be healing by drinking them yourself. Balance the red waters, the female energies of the Chalice Well, with the waters of the White Spring, the male energies, which is very close by, in a beautiful candle-lit water temple.

    We leave the best for last, a climb to the top of the Glastonbury Tor. Witness the amazing energies of the Tor, find out why these hills are called sleeping dragons and look out over the sacred landscape all the way to Wales.

    I recently went on the eight-day tour. It was a thoroughly fascinating and enjoyable experience and I experienced parts of the English countryside/landscape that I think I would never have come across that the benefit of being in a guided tour. Day one starts in Glastonbury.

    we were looking for something more about King Arthur. it seemed a lot of Christian facts and stories were mixed into the tour but the whole thing didn't seem to fit. Some interesting sites but not worth the money we payed. I am reluctant to review as the last review that was bad

    My only 2 bad reviews, both from the same party, after 8 years with only 169 excellent reviews, this saderns me as this group of Latter-day saints from Utah seemed to enjoy them selves so I'm not sure the motivation of their reviews? If you agree with them then maybe you should as suggested avoid Glastonbury. But I hope you come and have a lovely time filled with magic.

    Tor seemed to be a very gentle, kind man and put effort in to making the tour interesting. I am 62 and was looking forward to a tour about King Arthur and Camelot. It appears that kind of tour does not exist and Tor does not even know many of the traditional stories or
