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!!
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.
Graham Kerr was our guide, recommended by the Tourist Information Office. He led us on a 3-hour narrated walk in Torquay. We enjoyed it very much and learned a lot... read more of interesting stories of local people (mainly women!) that we will remember. Graham was knowledgeable and also warm and friendly, making the experience a highlight of our visit to South Devon. We highly recommend him!

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.
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.
We spent two nights in Babbacombe and did this walking tour on our first day -- but it was so good we booked a second tour for our final day.... read more The second one was the Agatha Christie themed tour and it was utterly fascinating - we learnt about every element of her life whilst seeing the beautiful sights of Torquay. The guide, Graham, was extremely friendly, informative and was full of stories that were the perfect balance of entertaining and informative. Highly recommended, whatever your fitness level.
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.
I have just been on a walking tour called ‘Beauty of the Bay’ and what an appropriate name for it, it wasn’t a sunny day but don’t let that put... read more you off the scenery is amazing.
We met Graham (the tour guide) in Torquay Harbour for what turned out to be a very enjoyable few hours. He is very knowledgable and has an obvious passion for Torquay and the surrounding area and is full of fun facts and stories
The walk itself took us out of Torquay and along part of the coastal path, it is not quite 4 miles with a number of steps and some rough ground - my Mum who was with me is 73 and managed easily but would definitely recommend a walking pole
I am very familiar with Torquay but doing this walk definitely opened my eyes to its charm and beauty
I believe this is one of a number of tours and would 100% recommend it, I will be making a return trip to try the others
