"Imagine an experience that births true joy. The pilgrimage exploring the themes of Mary Magdalene and the Divine Feminine in France yields gifts of profound beauty to the spirit, mind, and body. Nina and her team created the perfect conditions to learn, connect and enjoy. Presentations on St. Mary Magdalene are brilliant, from direct experience of the beach where she landed to the mountaintop where she lived, I was deeply moved. The cuisine and graceful lodging at a chateau in beautiful vineyards were perfect. This trip combines beauty, wisdom and profound inspiration. For me, it was an experience of ineffable spiritual power. I highly recommend this trip as an exquisite gift to your own deepening journey."

Dancing Spirit is vastly different than other travel. I’ve participated in three pilgrimages - The Divine Feminine in France, Celtic Shamanism in England, and A Heart Full of Love in Assisi. All of them have enriched my Spirit. Careful, intelligent, innovative planning is evident from the moment of arrival, not only for our physical needs, but also our spiritual and social needs. On other trips I have been a tourist, with Dancing Spirit I am a pilgrim. On other trips I have made acquaintances, with Dancing Spirit I form deep, lasting bonds. On other trips I return home with pictures and mementos, with Dancing Spirit I return home with nurturing, sustenance, and support for my soul's journey. I look forward to my next pilgrimage with Dancing Spirit!

“When I pay for a five-star journey, I expect five stars. Dancing Spirit exceeded this rating category by miles. I have lived and explored all over Europe and am very aware of what tour companies offer. Nina and her team leave no detail to chance and make their pilgrimage tours outstanding experiences. I’m very fussy in making recommendations to my friends, and friends, I highly recommend Dancing Spirit.”

“It was obvious from the outset that Nina and Horst have created something extraordinary in Dancing Spirit. When I choose to book with a travel company I look for trip leaders with integrity, passion, honest intentions, professionalism, and heart and soul. Nina, Horst and the whole team have all these qualities and more. I appreciate how they went out of their way to accommodate 40 people's needs, which is never easy. It's difficult to put into words how the journey changed me, and to describe the deep, soulful connections I made with friends, not to mention the miracles that took place daily. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to tell you that my journey to Assisi was the greatest gift I ever gave myself. I left feeling whole and healed (and a few pounds heavier from the pasta but hey, it was worth it). Thanks Dancing Spirit for making it possible."

“I'm usually a little wary of tour groups but something pushed me to take the risk with Nina and Dancing Spirit. I ventured into the Divine Feminine pilgrimage with no particular expectations. I was in for the surprise of my life. From the first moment, I could tell this would be an adventure. And it was. To date, this was one of the best-organized, researched and manifested tours I've ever experienced. An amazing group of like-minded souls gathered in France and we journeyed together from Marseille to Paris. Together we laughed, cried, shared, explored and learned so much. Under the ever-watchful eye of Nina and her team — Horst and Donna, Brie and Pierre (a fantastic driver) — every detail was taken care of. I have traveled to France my entire adult life, and never before knew of some of the places Nina introduced us to. Her spirit lights up the journey. If you are looking for something different and have an interest in pilgrimage with a twist, this is the tour group you need."

Mary, Co. Roscommon, Ireland

“I came home with was a transformed view my life and the world. There are no words to express how devoted Nina, Horst, Donna and Brie are to their passion and making sure everyone was taken care of every moment. Nina, who has done research beyond belief, has woven it into a tapestry of the richest history. Together, they worked endlessly and to the last minute to expose us to everything available that few people who go on tours ever get to experience. My life was transformed on this trip in a way that was incomprehensible to me before I went. This was a tour for my soul that will be with me forever. Forever family: I will see you on another journey."

Ilka, Idaho, USA

“Between the two of us, we have traveled on six continents, but the Assisi tour with Dancing Spirit was the absolute best ever travel experience — totally professional and complete in every detail. Guided, informed, educated and inspired every step of the way. And there was room for free time and downtime as needed. The team was totally flexible and accommodating. Wonderful! We will definitely travel with Dancing Spirit again!"

Gary & Rachelle, Manitoba, Canada

“I’m still carrying a heart full of love into my daily life — in my work, my community and with special friends and family. Everyone has told me they have ‘felt’ the energy in some way. I’ll be joining Dancing Spirit again. For me, the tours are a perfect mix of sacred journey, relaxed and pampered holiday, and professional development. Highly, highly recommended."

“Nina and her Dancing Spirit team are true guardians of the soul. It’s impossible not to grow spiritually on their adventures, whether that is your intent or not. I’ve been to France, Austria, and England with them and look forward to further travels. I know I will learn, grow and be well taken care of during the journey. I highly recommend traveling with Dancing Spirit.”

Anne, New York, USA

"Nina's commentaries at sacred sites were exceptional. I admit I'm a tough customer when it comes to this type of experience, but without a doubt, Nina was in the zone. Her words were clearly inspired by spirit and I felt a very palpable channelling through them to my heart. Whatever Nina's process is for intuiting the right words at each site — just enough to open hearts and allow the spirit to do its work — keep doing it!"

Dani, Singapore

"Traveling with Dancing Spirit is so much more than a holiday. It’s truly timeout to connect or reconnect with yourself, with others, with the awesomeness of nature and the Divine — and to let your spirit dance. I can’t recommend Nina and her team highly enough for the lengths they go to ensure each person is so well looked after throughout the journey. I have traveled with them to Iceland and England, and am looking forward to another tour in the future."

Lena, Sydney, Australia

"The vision of Dancing Spirit resonates-- exploring the land and exploring myself, it's a perfect fit for me. Connecting with people in a meaningful way is such a relief. Life is too short for small talk. I'm coming away with real friendships and a sacred experience of the land where my ancestors are from. I couldn't have accessed this level of depth by myself. It's priceless."

Rick, Aukland, New Zealand

"I'm coming away with HUGE LOVE in my heart for all these people. I've learned so much the magnificent history and mythology of Iceland. I've gained a new reverence for the sacred and how to apply it to my life."

“This pilgrimage has been the most transformative process of my life-- and I'm turning 80 soon! The spiritual aspect is having the deepest impact… in fact, my experiences are STILL unfolding over a month after returning home – I experienced a deep personal breakthrough while walking on the labyrinth in Chartres Cathedral. Singing together and listening to stories about the symbolism of the labyrinth gave me a new perspective on where I am in my life. Do yourself a favor and say 'yes' to this journey-- just go for it!"

Catherine, California, USA

"I felt connected to myself in such deep ways I've never explored before. This was the most meaningful trip I've ever been on, and I travel a lot. I'm coming back for more and bringing my future children so they may have a sacred journey too."

Angelica, California, USA

"A marvellous integration of both the inner and outer landscapes of the human spiritual journey. The earth pulses with sacred energy. Everywhere we went was surreal and out of this world... and we were there by ourselves. Not a tourist in sight! Nina's storytelling brought the journey to life. The highlight for me was the drumming in the cave. I felt my Scandinavian ancestors standing beside me! ... Excellent beyond imagining!"

Eva, Berlin, Germany

"The Divine Feminine was absolutely incredible and I know I'll never forget the journey. Nina's commentary at each site was one of the highlights of the trip for me. I loved the balance between history and spirituality you achieved. There are things Nina said that will stay with me always. I am constantly remembering aspects of the trip and always feeling gratitude for having had the life changing experience."

Reggie, Sydney, Australia

"I want to tell you how deeply my heart was touched by my Dancing Spirit retreat in Assisi. Although raised Catholic, I really met St. Francis and St. Clare for the first time through this pilgrimage. Now I feel them in my life. I also have an appreciation of my Catholic roots, which I had not felt in decades. This journey is a perfect combination of history, heart, and authenticity. I feel as though it ushered in this second half of my life — one I’m already loving and appreciating with a passion. I want to thank each of you for the meaningful and spirit-filled work you are doing."

Terry, Nevada, USA

"Every detail was well thought out and taken care of in a first class manor; very professional, with a great deal of heart and soul animating every experience. This 'tour' indeed offers pilgrimage for those who wish to connect with the profoundly sacred spaces that Nina introduces us to with such great integrity, knowledge and passion.

“Dancing Spirit Tours is unique. In a more and more competitive tourism industry, I can confidently say that you will not find this kind of trip with anyone else. The mix of knowledgeable, sincere, and passionate leaders, along with truly incredible destinations provides the opportunity for a once in a lifetime experience. It’s unsurprising there are so many familiar faces on the journeys! Ask anyone who’s attended, and they’ll tell you about the trust and friendships they established within the ‘dancing spirit community’. You can not experience these sacred places the same way on your own. Their guides have unique spiritual insight and historical information about the hidden aspects of the culture. I’m happy to be able to give this testimonial for all Dancing Spirit Tours has done for me, and I look forward to their continued growth and being a part of it with my fellow travellers.”

Mathias, Ontario, Canada

"The biggest thing that stands out for me about DST the extremely well organized nature of the tour, while still 'going with the flow' and allowing the energy dynamics of the group determine what happens next. This shows me that Nina knows the destinations inside and out and has an intuitive ability to observe the larger vision while remaining attentive to the details."

Erin, Zimbabwe
