Went on the Torbay at war walk and had a great time. Graham was knowledgeable and passionate about the subject and gave us an insight into what life was like... read more to the Torwinians during war time. Definitely do one or more of Graham’s tour if you’re in town.
We did the "Best of Babbacombe" tour and found Graham to be really upbeat and personable, full of really engaging and informative stories which gave us a more in-depth insight... read more into some of the amazing history and places of interest. The tour lasted for nearly 3 hours and Graham's passion made it fly by (with the help of a delicious authentic ice-cream stop along the way).
Graham didn’t just take us on a walk but rather a historical adventure around Babbacombe. From the first step he related interesting information about the people and places that lived... read more or visited this delightful coastal town through the ages. Featuring Oscar Wilde, John Lee and Queen Victoria’s lady in waiting, to name but a few; Graham told fascinating stories whilst we walked down to and along Oddicombe Beach. The funicular railway brought us back to Babbacombe and the end of our tour. It was fun and informative and for that we highly recommend and thank Graham.
Did the Bay tour away from torquay itself but came back to do a bit of torquay on the way back though. This is great for checking out the hidden... read more delights of Torquay such as the Osborne Hotel, Cove Beaches away from the town and the castal path towards the end is a treat but be prepared to climb some steps to enjoy the view from up high - it's worth the effort though and take your camera for some great views to snap.
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.
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
I took the Timeless Torquay tour with Graham today. Any expectations I had were exceeded by the wonderful tour experience he provided (even organising perfect weather..!).
I work in... read more tourism and can say with confidence that Graham is a top-notch guide. He was pleasant company, and shared lots of fun, interesting, and unusual facts as well as giving great tips for places to eat etc.
The tour was comprehensive, but unhurried, and has whetted my appetite for more.
I'd been to Torquay several times before but really saw it in a new light this time. I hope the tourism authorities will utilise his knowledge and passion for the place and its history to help promote it to new markets.
In the meantime, if you're in Torquay - do take one of his tours. It will be a couple of hours well spent..!
