Day 9: Visit Horus Temple at Edfu / Temple of Kom Ombo
Today we will visit Edfu Temple of Horus one of the most well-preserved Temples in Egypt. The side chambers of the Temple show the complexity of ancient rites. They include a healing chamber, a perfumery, and singers’ rooms. One chamber, called the House of Life, stored all of the sacred texts used in seasonal and daily rituals. Horus is associated with higher vision and clarity. The eye of Horus greatly relates to his myth and power. The builders were influenced by the legendary Followers of Horus, a predynastic elite who occupied Egypt, who were thought to have written the Edfu Building Texts that describe dates going back tens of thousands of years. Sail to Kom Ombo, by sunset we will visit the only dual temple in Egypt. This dramatic temple poised between the edge of the river and the encroaching desert sand was dedicated to two gods - Sobek the crocodile god of strength, fortitude, fertility and rebirth, and Horus the hawk-headed son of Isis and Osiris. The duality of light/ dark, yin/yang, conscious/unconscious is obvious in this ancient site. One of the most powerful places in Kom Ombo is the Seat of Neutrality, which is placed on the exact centerline between the parts of the temple that are dedicated to Horus / Sobek and Light/Dark. We will dock near Kom Ombo for the night. Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner / Overnight: on board Nile Cruise.


Day 10: Sail to Aswan / Visit Philae - Temple of Isis / Elephantine Island / Afternoon Felucca ride
Today we will return to the source of all, the Great Mother, to receive the blessings of Isis at her beautiful island temple at Philae. This isle represents a fusion of three great civilizations: Egyptian, Greek and Roman. It is also here that numerous giant skeletons were unearthed in 1901, including one that was over eleven feet tall. We will continue our leisurely morning as we sail to Aswan. Aswan city is our favorite Egyptian city. Enjoy a felucca sail to visit Elephantine Island and walk through the layers of time that archaeological explorations have unveiled. Atop the island we gather at the temple of Khnum for quiet time to contemplate and meditate. Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner / Overnight: on board Nile Cruise


Day 11: Aswan Quarry / Nubian Museum to see Nabta Playa Stone Circle

Feedback from 'Mysteries of England' Tour 2018

The tour exceeded the description and my expectations. Hugh explains in a fun, easeful way all the Megalithocal structures while leaving room for your own interpretations. The tour expanded my heart and mind!"
- Christine Angel, USA

"This past summer my wife and l went on the Mysteries of England Tour and it was simply incredible. The megalithic sites not only captivate you, but they are revealed to you in a whole new light. At each spot, you can feel the energies that drew the ancients to these places, and you begin to understand that these were not primitive peoples, but sophisticated in their understanding of the Earth, the stars, and how we are all connected by powerful forces both seen and unseen. I hope l can take this tour again. It is by far the best adventure in England you will ever take."
- Shane Williams, USA

"Thanks so much for the fantastic tour. It really was a lot of fun."
- Pamela Williams, USA

"Just to say that the Mysteries of England Tour that I’ve just taken with you was a real blast. It was non-stop from start to finish and interesting, thought provoking and fun. I’m still having to take it all in. Plus, you really put a lot of effort into making sure that everyone got out of the tour what they wanted to get out of it and were prepared to give up your time freely to the people on the tour. You really went above and beyond."
- Clive Maxwell Yates, UK

"I sure enjoyed our England tour. Wow, so much packed into the week! You ordered the perfect weather, kept the queues to a minimum and did an awesome job avoiding the crowds! :-) I appreciate your arranging for our local guides Shaun Kirwan and Maria Wheatley -- and others that just showed up. I so enjoyed you and Jj, your patience and willingness to repeat yourself to all of us as we spread out and explored the stones and energy. I especially enjoyed the dowsing, and I'm going to get dowsing rods (mine melted in the 2011 wildfire). Thanks for all the coaching and help learning all that. AND I so enjoyed the drone so we could experience the crop circles, Cerne giant and Huffington dragon/horse."
- Marie Louise Hadden, USA

Feedback from 'Magic of Megalithic Ireland' Tour 2013

"I may have initially thought this trip was about rocks and circles (:)), but it turned out to be so much more! I loved the silent moments and the connecting with the ancient spirits" - Amanda King, Australia

"I miss the companionship and joking and play, and deep conversations and constellations, dance, and sacred sites we shared together. And I am taking all this joy with me in my ever expanding heart." - Lottie Cooper, USA

Feedback from 'Megaliths, Gods & Giants Peru & Bolivia' 2016 Tour
with guest host Jim Vieira

"Aloha everyone, Thank you for the trip of a lifetime! Enjoyed the sites, all of you, and the adventure. A hui hou....until we meet again."
- Mona Stevenson, Hawaii

"Thank you all for the fantastic time we had in Peru and Bolivia!"
- Jelle Kolmer, Holland

"Thank you all for a great trip.. Everyone of you added a brilliant insight into this trip for me and I thank you kindly for that. I normally don’t have patience for humans but you all were beautiful in your own light. Once again I thank you for that."
- Seak Kelly, USA

"Hey, Hugh! It was great to meet you and learn so much about ancient mysteries from your vast storehouse of knowledge and insight!"
- Tom McGuire, USA

"The ancient Peru / Bolivia tour hosted jointly by Hidden Inca Tours and Megalithomania answered to all my expectations in every way but one, which it exceeded. I got to see the most important sites for my introduction to ancient megalithic Peru and Bolivia, of which surely Sachsayhuaman and Puma Punku (as part of the Tiahuanaco complex) were personal highlights. The hosts were very informative and also fun to be around. No stuffiness, no boring lecturing and an atmosphere of being among intellectual equals, even though in knowledge and experience our hosts far exceed my level. In general the tour was very well organised and where room for improvement was found and commented on, that input was welcomed and actually implemented expediently. So in all I had a wonderful experience and would recommend this to anyone. Now for the part exceeding my expectations... that was the group dynamics. I admittedly had expected a group of mainly elderly pensionados. Fine for me, a very fit 41 year old, but not thrilling either. But hey, no such thing! The group was actually a wonderfully diverse and blended crew of people from all walks of life, young and older. This made for a truly fun two weeks and lots of conversations on and off topic with views and multifaceted interpretations so diverse as to be almost kaleidoscopic. Open minds. I like! Thank you Irene, Gustavo, Brien, Hugh, Jim, Antonio, Sr. Luis and son, our very skilled bus drivers and of course my fellow Megalithomaniac group. As Arny puts it best: I'll be back! "
- Aaron Karmelk, Holland

"We still can't forget Peru and Bolivia, all the wonderful sites and moments of our great trip. In spite of all the hardships it will remain the most memorable journey of our lives. It was great to meet all of you, to hear your stories and live great moment together. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences with us. Today we would like to wish you all lovely Christmas an much hapiness in the coming year. And of course more fantastic journeys to most mysterious places in the world"
- Hanna and Roland Vandiest, Poland/Belgium

"Hal and I are still missing Peru and especially all the wonderful friends we made along the journey! We're going to have pisco sours instead of egg nog this Christmas and we'll drink a toast to all Megalithomaniacs everywhere. Warmest wishes for a joyous holiday season and looking ahead to more adventures in 2017! "
- Hal and Ro Woodruff, USA

- Lyn de Trense, England

"It felt less like a tour group and more like I had flown in to visit friends who were showing me around their turf, and for me, that was fine. I still feel I got more out of this tour than I would have with any other group. I enjoyed myself to the utmost, and was pleasantly surprised by almost everything - especially the kind people with whom I had the privilege of sharing this time." - Sandy Underwood, USA
