    Sarah, our guide, picked up the three of us from our hotel as arranged. What a delightful young woman. She was full of interesting information and took us on a brilliant tour, not only showing us all the major filming locations we would never have found ourselves, but lots of other relevant sights as well. The tour was expensive, but we felt it was very well worth it; a really wonderful and jam-packed day. I thoroughly recommend this tour, but most especially Sarah, our guide.

Our driver Jeff was marvellous, he told loads of fun and interesting stories, kept the spirits up when we got in a traffic jam on our way back to London, had tons of fun surprises for us along the way and was the perfect man to guide us through the wonderful landscape and charming villages in Cornwall and Devon. The tour gives you a great first insight and an overview of this region, the chosen BnBs were lovely, clean, and always just a quick walk from the town.

Very nice tour where you can have an overwiew on Devon and Cornwall. Tour members were nice and we can feel the passion of the tour guide, Dave, for the countryside, he gaves a lot of details and stories while driving, very entertaing. Tour well organised, and the bed&breakfeasts where we stayed were very nice. I can only recommend it
