We have the following tours designed to cater for different styles, while keeping the traditional charm of our lovely island. All our tours are private and chauffeur-driven.

It is built on a prehistoric site and built in a circular structure like the temples as the dome’s round shape amplifies the energy.  This church is very unique as, unlike other churches, it has a very clean energy as there are no statues with blood like we usually see in churches, so even people who are not Christians meditate in this church for the positive energy it has in it. It is said, that this Church is also built on the earth’s ley lines.  Ley lines are places of ancient religious significance or culture, often including man-made structures. They are ancient, straight 'paths' or routes in the landscape which are believed to have spiritual significance.
