WHAT IS A MYSTERY ADVENTURE?
We handle the details, find the best places, and provide experts to answer your questions .... but YOU EMBARK ON THE QUEST. We won’t just talk about history … we will teach you to see. We won’t just answer your questions but engage you in inquiry. Each Ancient Mystery Quest is unique. You bring your questions and interests and we’ll help you slide between the cracks of history, stepping into French culture, and embarking on an expedition into the Unknown. We never know what we might discover.
See Our Philosophy for more about what makes us different.

When’s the last time your tour guide took you to a Michelin rated restaurant and told you to order whatever you want? We eat fresh local fare and stay at boutique chambres d’hôtes (B&Bs with delightful dinner service). We provide historical experts and cultural ambassadors to answer your questions and show you the ropes.
HOW MANY PEOPLE USUALLY COME ON THE TOUR?
We only work with VERY SMALL groups. Small tours allow us to focus on what You love along the way. Want to practice French? Talk about the Templars? Climb incredible mountains? Relax and drink wine? Visit powerful sites? Journal and meditate? Together, we co-create an amazing Adventure.
Your vacation time is valuable ~ we want to help you make the most of it. A small group allows everyone the opportunity to explore their questions and interests. We aim for around 6 Adventurers. That way our chauffeur can still get the coach down the backroads to our favourite spots, and we can all fit around the dinner table. After all … C’est la France!
HOW MUCH TIME WILL WE SPEND WITH HENRY LINCOLN?
At eighty-nine years old, Henry Lincoln is still spry and sharp, but he does grow weary at times. He will be joining us as much as he is able during the journey, and you’ll see him sometimes round the dinner table with five courses of time to talk. He joins us to visit some of our special places and loves to share his passions.
To Anyone who Dreams of Meeting Henry Lincoln:
Do not put this off. The opportunity will not be around forever. Whatever your connection to the mystery, here at Sacred Mystery Tours working with Henry Lincoln has been a great honour of our lives. We have been constantly blown away by his knowledge, humility, ability to see things others do not — and above all — by his beautiful heart. Do not miss this chance.
