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!
Thoroughly enjoyed this walk as it was really interesting to find out the detailed history of the area from our fantastic host Graham. Secrets of Torquay and the surrounding... read more area were revealed that we would never have uncovered without taking this tour. Meadfoot beach is beautiful and following the coastal path to the harbour was stunning - thank you Graham for making this such a fantastic tour.
As every reviewer has written Graham is an outstanding guide. My wife and I took the Agatha Christie tour on Sept 23rd and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although we have read... read more a few of her novels the majority of our knowledge of her works comes from TV and film. However, as a result of Graham's tour we have both promised to rectify that. We found Graham to be extremely informative but also presented the information as if we were friends out for an afternoon walk in a very relaxed, small group. Graham took us around a number of locations which we had already seen during out stay but had no idea what they actually were which was an added bonus for us. At the end of the tour he was also kind enough to spend some time with us discussing the best places to eat and visit for the remainder of our stay. Therefore, I would recommend Graham as being an essential part of anyone's stay in Torquay and will be going on another tour with him when we return. His tour was definitely a highlight of our stay. Thank you!!
I went on a tour of Babbacombe with some friends while we were on holiday and it was absolutely amazing! Not only was the scenery fantastic but our tour guide,... read more Graham, was really knowledgeable and friendly. We really recommend his tours and can’t wait to do more in the future!
We had an absolutely fabulous walking tour with Graham during our recent visit to Torquay. It was great fun, enjoyed by me - a huge Agatha fan! - and my... read more husband and daughter. Graham is friendly and very knowledgeable about Agatha, as well as Torquay, which made the tour really interesting. What better day to recommend this fabulous walk - on Agatha's birthday! Definitely book if you are visiting, such an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours, you won't regret it. Thanks Graham.
Our mid-August stay in Torquay developed into a far greater experience than we had anticipated, and this is in part thanks to this comprehensive tour. In addition to the beautiful... read more views and best fish and chips we’ve had - our 3 hour tour of Agatha Christie’s relationship with Torquay by our very knowledgable and enthusiastic guide Graham, was the icing on the cake of our trip.
Enjoying a beautiful walk along the harbour and up at greater heights, we enjoyed anecdotes not just about Christie’s life but about Torquay’s history as well.
My family and I all agreed that this was the highlight of our trip, and we’d recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy a surprisingly fun-filled, coastline tour of Christie’s long and incredible life, alongside insights into Torquay’s history we had not anticipated.
An absolute must for both visitors and locals. Graham is a fascinating and knowledgeable guy who clearly loves what he does. Informative and entertaining for everyone, young or old, wanting... read more a really nice way to spend a few hours in great company. Thanks Graham.
Excellent walk. As the guide was free the following day, we arranged a private tour. Fascinating, full of interesting facts about Agatha Christie and Torquay area too. V engaging and... read more knowledgable. We were so interested the tour lasted longer than expected but time flew by. Would highly recommend this company
Graham’s Agatha Christie tour was utterly fantastic.
My husband and I didn’t know too much about Agatha Christie’s life beforehand, but it really didn’t matter. Graham was engaging... read more and enthusiastic throughout the tour which was so enjoyable. Even from the time of booking Graham’s communication was excellent and we felt reassured that we had picked an excellent guide.
We discovered during the tour that Agatha Christie was buried very close to where we live, so we stopped by on our way home to finish off our trip, pay our respects and say thanks to Agatha Christie for the service she provided to the world.
Thank you for a really great day, we look forward to seeing you again on future tours around Torquay!
