Feedback from Malta and Gozo Tour 2024

"This was my second trip with Megalithomania. Each of them left unforgettable memories. I usually travel around the world alone - that's what I like the most, but trips with Hugh and JJ are not only filled with a lot of knowledge and visited places, but also a lot of laughter and good humor. Moreover, all the people who take part in these expeditions are keenly interested in ancient history, so in your free time you can engage in very interesting conversations. The technical organization is always exemplary. - Bernadetta - Poland/England

"Thank you all for another fabulous vacation adventure. Wish we had a lot more time!!!! We appreciate what you do and are looking forward to the next time we can get together!! - Mark Belotti, USA

"It’s been awesome and thanks again for great company and another unforgettable adventure in the world’s mysteries." - Peter Bugg, UK

Feedback from Egyptian Origins Tour 2019

"Thanks to Megalithomania for truly epic tour of Egypt and Jordan! The list of highlights is way too long to mention. Suffice to say we got to see more than expected, learned more than expected, and had the pleasure of doing all this in a great travel group of fascinating people. The insights from Hugh, J.J., Jim, Yousef, and the local guides made seeing all these sights for the first time even more exciting. We loved the combination of hotels and the Nile cruise. Getting to walk, climb, and crawl in the Great Pyramid, Bent Pyramid, Osiris Shaft, around the Sphinx, and other areas was amazing. We’re so happy we did the Jordan add-on. So many things to see in Jordan, still, Petra was even more remarkable than we imagined. Hope to see you all on a future trip! - Steve Sadler & Barbara Patrick, USA

"This was the best holiday trip experience in my life so far! Had lots of laughs and fun and I was absolutely stunned and mesmerised by the incredible historical ancient sites and captivated by the remarkable discoveries! I learned so much With your great knowledge insights and will remember this trip and you as a group / tour guides and all the tour hosts ,Forever! The choice of accommodation was impressive and meals was delicious . Thank you Soul of Egypt tours for your excellent arrangements. It was worth every dollar paid for this tour. Highly recommended! Thank you each one in the tour group for everyday’s friendly smiles and chats and I would love if ever it could be possible a reunion with the same group lol! Take care..maybe will see some of you again in the future". - Lariana, UK

"That was the best trip ever! I echo Lariana's hope that we all could get together again sometime. To a person, this was a wonderful, truly compatible and friendly group. The best!" - Aleta and Dave, USA

"Our Megalithomania tour to Egypt and Jordan was everything I wanted it to be and so much more! It was such a special trip shared with a group of like minded souls all interested in searching for the truth about these ancient civilizations. I am an ancient history addict and love to explore alternative theories about the origins of civilization. Hugh Newman, Jim Vieira, Yousef Awyan, and JJ Ainsworth guided and informed our journey every step of the way. It was so special to hear cutting edge theories from experts in the field! I learned a lot and was able to ask many questions, which was so fulfilling! We are definitely booking another Megalithomania tour soon!" - Katy and Jorge Montanez, US/Mexico

"Well what an amazing holiday, still resonating now with me as I'm sure it is with you too. Nobody does it like Megalithomania, thanks to Hugh and Jj, Jim Vieira, the Soul of Egypt team; Amro, Ahmed our wonderful guides; Yousef, Ehab, Adel, we walked betwwen worlds together. Great hotels, opulent dining all in stunning locations and in really good company which meant I may have started that journey alone but it ended with fond farewells to a couple of dozen or so new friends, thanks for putting up with me! " - Tony Chinn, UK

Feedback from Ancient Orkney Tour 2019

"Thank you both firstly for accommodating me at such short notice! And giving me the opportunity to be apart of your tour. I had a thoroughly enjoyable and positive experience! The pace and variation of each day was most agreeable, your flexible but assertive approach to the itinerary and it’s facility for spontaneous reshuffle was most appreciated also, it was a pleasure to be in the company of leaders that showed leadership skills!! The sites visited where very interesting and thought provoking and the knowledge/ideas shared by yourselves on such sites I found very well conveyed and valued. The collective of interesting and intelligent people that I shared my tour with, played just as much a part of my overall experience as the sites and environment did, what a lovely Group dynamic.... oh and also I’d like to point out that I’d never have known that it was your first shared tour, you seemed to compliment each other’s specialised subjects well. All in all you can count me as a very satisfied and grateful Megalithomaniac. Look forward to our next adventure"
- Tim McNair, UK

Reviews of the 2019 'Ancient Sardinia Tour'

"Thanks again, Hugh & JJ for a great tour!!" - Peggy Roberts, USA

"Many, many thanks for all you did to make our holiday so successful. It was thoroughly enjoyable, if tiring. But perhaps that is my age. It was a pleasure to have everything run smoothly and see so many really interesting sights/sites" - Tricia Morgan, USA

"Thanks again for a great holiday - and I look forward to travelling with you again" - Viv Amos, USA

"Thoroughly enjoyed the 2019 May Sardinia Tour, thanks to the 'Mega Team'. Beautiful country, fantastic ancient sites, delightful cuisine and great, new friends. Our amazing guides showed us the best sites, not on the normal tourist routes, and each site was explained in spellbinding detail and care. The evidence of ancient civilisations is all about, but you need to know where to look and it's best explored with expert guides. A life changing journey. Now planning our next." - Hugh Evans, UK

"Seeing inland Sardinia – its landscapes and countryside – was a revelation. To think of all that tranquiility and beauty only two hours flight away, and with so few people around! Arianna and Enrico certainly knew their sites and chose some extraordinary places for us. I was particularly drawn to the sacred wells, our morning at the pyramid and the Mont'e Prama statues. Our hotels were a delight - so were the local food and wine. Everyone seemed enthusiastic and I came away hoping that one day I shall return to this beautiful island." - Yvonne Whiteman, UK

"Thanks once again for a brilliant tour!" - Ian Bush, UK

"Thank you Hugh, JJ, Arianna and Enrico and all other Megalithomaniacs!!!!! What a fantastic week. We saw and did such fantastic things. Old sights were brought to life by Arianna and Enrico and their in depth explanations. SUPER!!!!! I would also like to thank the numerous 'hands and and arms' that were extended to help me navigate the uneven ground. Without this assistance I would not have made it. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you ALL!!!" - Diane Sommelet, France

"Thank you for a lovely, interesting, informative and enjoyable tour. It has reawakened a part of me that has not seen the light for a few years. Thank you for the company, the chats and the music! Can anybody tell me how to get Bohemian Rhapsody out of my head? Look forward to seeing you again soon." - Vee Kiely, UK

Feedback from 'Mysteries of England' Tour 2019

"Hugh and JJ, you were great host and never failed to create an exciting atmosphere at every megalithic site we visited each day. The bar is set pretty high now for all future gatherings! I would like to send a special heartfelt Thank You to everyone of you for the kindness and love you showed to my Mom!! She has been grinning from ear to ear every time I look at her and has been telling every person she talks to about how wonderful of a time she had this week. You are all truly amazing people. Thank you so much!!"
- Michael Williams, USA

"Thank you for sharing your knowledge about ancient sites in England. The tour exceeded my expectations in all respects. I appreciate that fact that you took us to ancient sites that everyone is familiar with and several other sites that are less well-known as they were all stunning and intriguing even if we had to tip-toe through a few cow patties. I truly enjoyed the additional knowledge provided by your guest speakers as well, especially the opportunity to learn a new hobby (dowsing). Experiencing ancient stone circles, burial mounds, and recent crop circles in person is a profound experience I will never forget. Everyone in our group made every day fun and downright out-of-this-world. I hope to see you soon on another Megalithomania tour in the near future".
- Melinda Terry, USA

"First THANK YOU for an amazing tour!!! We are a bit sad of course that we missed 2 days out of 5. But we will come back. Thank you for all your care and explanations and organisation! We really loved it!"
- Lu Ka and Ginger, Slovenia & China

"Thanks Hugh & JJ for a wonderful experience. I did not know what to expect when I signed up – but I am sure glad I did. You took great care of us, and not only did you plan an amazing tour with visits to many varied interesting sights, you also were flexible and willing to go the extra mile and add additional site visits (i.e. crop circles) when the opportunity to do so arose. I appreciated the knowledge of the guest speakers who joined us at specific sites, and also really enjoyed my fellow tour group members – they were the icing on the cake – a great and fun group of people! Thanks again.
Kathy Mannion, USA

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 '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

Meticulous attention to detail in the planning of each days itinerary and accommodation and of course the local wisdom of Gustavo to top it off. The ability to share in some "off the beaten track" sites was the cherry on the top. A HUGE thank you to Brien, Hugh, Andrew and Gustavo as well as Irene of course for making it such a memorable trip. For anyone considering this tour - stop considering and just do it!!" - Kurt B, USA

So thank you all for putting together such a memorable tour. Great menu, interesting and fun crowd of fellow travellers. Good places to stay. Great stuff!"
- Lyn de Trense, England

"I want to once again thank Brien, Hugh, Irene, and Gustavo for this great tour. It definitely exceeded my expectations.

- Garrett Leo, USA

We learnt so much and feel truely grateful for what was revealed to us, and to all the organisers, especially Hugh & Brien, for putting together such a memorable and stimulating tour.

"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
