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.
Loved the walking tour. I recommend it for any Agatha Christie fan. I thought I knew so much about her already but I did not. :) Graham was so well... read more informed and full of stories about Agatha’s life and about the history of Torquay in general.
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
My wife and I chose to do the Beauty of the Bay walk with Graham. It was a great introduction to the Bay. It is hilly in some places but... read more certainly manageable for most. The views were amazing but more importantly, Graham was fantastic. Highly knowledgeable including Agatha Christie and the second world war. It was so interesting that straight after the walk, we went to Torquay museum.
At £10 per person, it is great value for money and Graham also offers various other walks.
I cannot recommend Graham highly enough. He was a complete professional but also relaxed. My wife and I learnt a lot and really did discover the beauty of the Bay with some incredible views. It was worth every single penny!
Thank you Graham and five stars!
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).
My husband and I went on this tour in early September Graham was really lovely, didn't rush it was just us that day which was great, so informative and whilst... read more am a fan learnt loads. Graham very understanding about my issues with heights and very accommodating in changing his route slightly. We had to a wonderful time
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!
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.
