      Awesome Eight Day Tour of England
      I having been leading group trips to sacred sites since 1993. We have studied Ethnobotany, Cultural Ecology and worked with the Mysteries of the Ancient Ancestors globally. Tors tours was fantastic and one of my all time favorite Journeys. It was full of Lore and History. I not only loved our travels along the lay lines, but the added Spiritual insights and Magical experiences that were interwoven. The places we stayed and our meals were simple, cozy, non-commercial and comforting. This tour was “The Best”! Thank you Tor and Michael for a delightful introduction to magical England.

      I highly recommend Tor's historical and spiritual expertise. He is a true intermediary--a guardian of the land. My experience at Avebury, among those ancient stones, was life-changing.

      Very positive experience with Tor!
      A very relaxing and low-stress tour with lots of storytelling and explanations of the history of the area, without it being overload. I went solo and met wonderful people on the tour. Stonehenge is nothing short of magical. Tor is extremely knowledgeable of the area. He is a safe driver. Wonderful lunch stop. Highly recommend!

      "A wonderful romp though a part of England that everyone should experience."
      In late May, my wife and I were taken on a enlightening jaunt from Glastonbury, through Dartmoor and on to Tintagel. Our host Michael combined a keenknowledge with charming humor in showing us a hunters lodge, Wistman's Wood,

      Amazing
      We had a fantastic time with Tor visiting Glastonbury's sacred sites. His knowledge of all the facts and legends is absolutely enlightening. We got much more than we expected and we highly recommend his service if anyone plans a visit to Glastonbury, the most enchanting and highly energetic place I've ever been. The company of his precious dog was a delight and a treat.

      'The Quest' with Michael
      This was a really nice walking tour of Glastonbury, I was lucky enough to have a solo tour with Michael. His knowledge of the area was extensive. If I had just walked around town on my own, I would have missed so many interesting and quirky sights as well as the background and history. Absolutely recommend this tour.

      Wow!
      I was extremely lucky to have found Tor online. I really wanted a guide to see Stonehenge and Avebury. Wow! I was not expecting the amount of amazing information I was to be given on this day tour. Everything from the sites themselves, the positioning of the stones, the possible use of the different stones and everything in between on the way there and back to Glastonbury. I felt like I was out on a day trip with an extremely knowledgeable friend. Do yourself a huge favour and book a tour with Tor.

      Better than expected! I was really surprised by this experience! This 8 day tour of the sacred places of England was really a great enrichment for me and very valuable! Again, I wanna say thank you Tor for that! For your knowledge, your commitment, for the many special places you showed me and also for the wonderful people I met through you! I have traveled to many sacred places around the world and this tour makes me even more curious for more! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It opened up a new world for me that I can't wait to explore more. I am really looking forward getting connected personally with you again.

      Great Tour for Spiritually-Minded Folk
      Tor provided a fantastic day at Stonehenge and Avebury for our group. As a spiritual seeker and traveler, I wanted a tour with someone who "got it." Tor definitely does. I would book again in a heartbeat.

      The places were well worth the visit while Tors lack of description of was not worth 245.00.
      First of all, let me state plainly and clearly that my wife and I are American. We are not wealthy, but work hard for our money and enjoy spending it on experiences. We thought that Tors Tour of King Arthur’s Cornwall would be magical and illuminating. It was anything but. The first red flag happened at the very outset of the tour when we were to meet Tor at 10:00am outside our B&B. He was half an hour late as his van broke down and he had to rent a car for the tour. Upon arriving late, he said he had texted my wife to let us know - there was no such text or trace of attempted communication. Being a professional guide to far-flung points of interest, wouldn’t the maintenance of his vehicle be paramount? He also had his dog in the back and although I don’t mind dogs at all, we found that our tour had more to do with Tor playing catch with his dog while walking ahead of us rather than telling us stories about the landscape or history of where we were. What if we were allergic to dogs? Too bad - is the sentiment that comes to mind. Truly, I found that if I didn’t ask Tor pointed questions about where we were, he wouldn’t have engaged us at all. I am well aware of Arthur’s history and the magical Ley Lines that cross the landscape, but it didn’t seem as if Tor’s mind was on the job at hand. I asked many questions that he either didn’t answer fully or deflected entirely. He seemed incapable of saying, ‘I don’t know’. He did speak about a new app he was developing and was very excited about that. The places he took us to were lovely and that is true. However, there were mistakes and misses at every turn which surprised me for someone who had been giving this tour for as long as he has. The morning we were to go to Tintagel we were to be picked up at 10:00am. The night before he told us that low tide was at 7:30am and that he would pick us up then. This seemed a rather late development when I assume anyone could have looked up the tides before the tour and adjusted the schedule, especially a guide getting paid 245.00 for each of us. As it was, Merlin’s Cave was awash in the ocean due to violent weather. I do not hold Tor responsible for this at all. Truly, had this tour cost 50.00 each I would have thought all was as it should be, but 245.00 per person is no small sum and yes, I expected more care for the price. I felt that Tor was not really interested in giving the tour his all and that it was a money-making hobby while he developed his app and other more interesting ideas for himself. I have just read some reviews from earlier dates, 2012, 2013 on his website and they are all glowing, so I am flummoxed as to what has happened in the meantime. Our B&B hosts said he was very knowledgeable about everyplace on the tour, so I was perplexed that it was so difficult to get him to tell us anything. I felt his attention and interests were elsewhere and that the tour was nowhere near worth the price of 245.00. Everyone has their bad days and this was certainly one for Tor. We had other tour guides in Bath and also Stonehenge and the difference between their affable knowledge and attention to us and Tors lack was astonishing. I couldn’t help but think that he didn’t like us personally for some reason. At the end of it, I felt I had paid such a hefty sum in order to be present while Tor walked and played ball with his dog. When he charges 245.00 per person, I don’t feel he can afford that kind of lapse in interest, or he should be doing something else.

    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 legends. We were extremely disappointed.
    My companions and I are practicing Christians. As such we know the Bible and Bible history fairly well. The information Tor gave us using stories and documented historical facts from the Bible were twisted and made it clear he did not know Bible stories.
    In all, my group felt this tour was a waste of time and money. In defense of Tor, most of the tours in Glastonbury are similar. Glastonbury is a place you can skip. What once was a fun legend has been twisted, forgotten and replaced with nonsense.
    We are sad we used part of our trip and funds in Glastonbury.

    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.

    I had a really great experience on this Tour. The person who was doing the tour wasn't Tor but a member of his team, Steve Lee. He had lots of wisdom and he was also very knowledgeable about Avalon and he was able to give us very good information about the main power places in Glastonbury. The tour became more that a tour as Steve was able to tune very easily with the energies of the place and that was transmitted to us through his words. It was very powerful and also very special. I really recommend it.

    This was a fab tour, a full day guided with Tor meeting in the centre of Glastonbury, visiting Wearyall Hill with the Holy Thorn Tree, St. Margaret's Chapel & Magdalene Almshouses, Glastonbury Abbey, with a stop for lunch at a local cafe, following on with St John's Church, Chalice Well, White Spring Well & Temple and finally on to Glastonbury Tor.

    Tor is a fab guide, answered all questions, got into some great discussions and told all the stories with passion and knowledge.

    Quite expensive for a couple to book onto, but you know the price before you book.

    Quick shout out to his amazing dog Nettle who was a lovely 'lolly' who added to the day in her own very special way.

    Would recommend.

    The full day tour of Glastonbury was everything I wanted out of my journey to this sacred location! The tour covers all of the important sites and really leaves you feeling spiritually fulfilled. Tor is a wonderful human, so knowledgeable, and such a peaceful presence. I learned a lot of new things about the area and really enjoyed the history. But most importantly, I had many special spiritual experiences that were life-changing and that I'll keep with me forever. I don't think I'll ever stop wishing I was back in Glastonbury until I get there. I definitely plan to return and take more tours with Tor!
