West Cornwall has so much to offer that we find it best to explore without a fixed itinerary.
Depending on the weather and time of year, we can visit Cornwall's ancient sites, drive along some of its narrowest lanes, cling onto its most spectacular cliff tops and discover some of its hidden delights.
Within reason and region we can cover most requests or we can show you some of our favourite sights and things to do in Cornwall.
Open Tour Details
Open tours are run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from April to November. Private tours are available from mid March and can be scheduled for any day of the week.
Lasting just over 4 hours, the open tours take up a whole morning and get you back in time for a late lunch. There are 8 passenger seats in the minibus and as mentioned above, itineraries are open.
The cost is £35 per person and £20 for under 12s (please note that this does not include entrance into any attractions).
We like to get in a bit of walking if its nice weather, but this also depends on everyone else on a tour, so bring a coat and some sun protection just in case. Many of the more interesting sites require climbing over rough granite steps or walking over uneven ground but we usually find something to keep everyone happy if this is a problem.
Sticking to the Lands End Peninsula, or Penwith as we call it (west of St Ives and Marazion), we typically visit half a dozen sites (plus the scenic miles in between) and stop off to enjoy a coffee half way round.
We concentrate on spots away from the crowds but if you really really want to, we can include some of the crowd pullers such as Lands End. Unfortunately 4 hours isn't long enough for us to include many of the more famous things to do in Cornwall such as the Eden Project, Newquay, Falmouth, Padstow, Tintagel and Port Isaac. But we do go this far up on full day private tours.
Where and When
Call 01736 362763 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for details and availability. Please don't just turn up as the details can and do change.
We require a minimum of two people for each tour, but if you are on your own we can usually get a group (or at least another person) for you to join.
