What is Timetrails?
Timetrails is run by a qualified archaeologist who gives guided, self-drive tours of many ancient and mysterious sites in central Brittany.
All tours are conducted in English and they focus on sites dating from the Neolithic (New Stone Age) and Bronze Age.
Depending on the tours you chose, you will visit Menhirs (standing stones), Cromlechs (stone circles) and several types of ancient burial monument known collectively as Dolmens.
Your guide will explain about the lives of people in Brittany up to 6,000 years ago, highlighting their ingenuity and skill as they constructed monuments which demonstrate a deep understanding of engineering, the land, the seasons and the skies above them.
At some sites you'll see enigmatic carvings which tempt us to speculate on the beliefs of prehistoric communities and you'll be amazed at some of their achievements.
These tours are a unique experience for small groups, offering unrivalled access to an expert guide who will be happy to answer (or attempt to answer) all your questions.
One thing we're very confident of is that you'll end your tour with an entirely new appreciation of the landscape and the people of the distant past.
