As a supplement to our Guide to Rock Art Sites Around the World, here we compile a list of guided tours to rock art and cave art sites by country. Whereas our guide is intended for people who make their own travel arrangements, this list is for those who prefer to take tours to rock art sites led by archaeologists and local experts.

Each of the tours listed below can be booked online through our partners GetYourGuide or Viator. We have chosen to partner with these two activity providers for a number of reasons. The links to the tours are affiliate links. Consequently, we may receive a small commission should you make a reservation. This will not incur an extra cost for you. And in no way does this influence our including any tours on this list. To learn more about the products and services we promote, and why we choose these partners, please read our Code of Ethics.
Bear in mind when searching for rock art tours in certain regions around the world that when visiting many rock art sites visitors are required to take a guided tour for which the site management will provide a guide. So unless you can not get to the sites with your own transport, in some cases there is little point in taking a guided tour. As with all guided tours and activities, our advice is to check carefully the details for the benefits of taking a guided tour and what is and what is not included. In all cases if you are unsure, send a question. If you discover a guided tour is not for you, you should be able to cancel it. The tours listed on this page can all be cancelled up to 24 hours before the start of the tour for a full refund. No questions asked!
If you offer cave art, rock art or petroglyph tours and would like to promote your tours on Archaeology Travel, read our Invitation to Independent Tour and Activity Providers. Or, if you have been on a rock art tour you would be happy to recommend, let your guide know about this page – they may be interested in being included in the list.
