Hidden Harbour Tour.
My family did this tour with Graham - it was the hidden harbour tour. I have lived in Torquay for 6 years, and I learnt an... read more enormous amount of local history from Graham today. This was a great tour and thoroughly enjoyed by us all.
This tour is great for families.
Graham who is the walking guide was absolutely brilliant. Cannot praise him highly enough. My friend and I went for three walks with him, and I have to say that... read more Graham was wonderful. Caring,friendly, thoughtful and knowledgeable. FULLY RECOMMEND this to everyone who enjoys walking and learning.
When I initially considered doing the English Rivera walking tours I was unsure what the day would be like as the last time I visited Torquay it was a fleeting... read more visit and was not somewhere I would have considered to go to for a holiday. I can honestly say from the walking tour my opinion on Torquay has completed changed. Seeing and hearing about the history of Torquay changed my perspective on this beautiful place. Not only would I come back from another incredible walking touring but I have booked to come back and stay at one of the spa hotels for a holiday. I would recommend anyone coming to Torquay to take part in a walking tour!
Torbay at War tour
Love walking and Ive always been interested in the Second World War so Grahams' "Torbay at War" tour ticked both those boxes for myself and a... read more pal of mine. I always judge a tour by how many times you hear "wow i didn't now that" (or words to that effect) and Mark and myself uttered them on numerous occasions. Graham genuinely took us back in time and surprised us as to the high profile roll that Torquay in particular took in the war. We'll be booking another of Grahams' tours as soon as its safe to do so. Thank you Nigel
Graham gave us a fantastic walking tour around Torquay. As others have mentioned a historical adventure not just about Agatha Christie, but insights about the culture and how... read more Torquay was architected. We did tour at the start of our holiday and Graham went out of his way to give us ideas of things to do and places to eat. It is a must for visitors to Torquay and I would highly recommend.
I really enjoyed the walk "Hidden Harbour".
I have been living in Torquay for many years and I haven't realised there was so much history in it.
Graham explanation... read more of Torquay history is very interesting and full of details. I definitely recommend and I will join again soon for another walking tour!!
We have lived in the South Hams area for over 20 years and never really looked to Torbay. Decided to take the Babbacombe tour and so glad we did. Graham... read more is a fantastic host. He has an easy manner, his knowledge of the area is exemplary being both informative and interesting. As well as the more well known facts he has a wealth of little nuggets to share which set him apart from others. Time in his company flies by and we recommend booking with him at any time of year, you certainly won't be disappointed. Five stars Mr Kerr and we’ll be back for the Agatha Christie your and the War Walk tour with friends
Took the Agatha Christie tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. An avid Christie reader, it was interesting to learn about how she lived her life and the importance of places... read more in Torquay. Just the right amount of talking with the added bonus of digital pictures on his tablet to support his knowledge. Great couple of hours spent in a beautiful place. Would definitely recommend.
