We had the best day with Doug!!! We arrived on a cruise ship and were promptly picked up. Our tour was informative and fun. Back on board, it was apparent that we saw more than anyone else. I would highly recommend this tour!

What a great experience! We couldn't have been happier, except we should have planned to stay longer. Phil was a great guide, highly entertaining, and a great host. We experienced Cornwall as never anticipated. Thank you for a great experience.

Loved this tour. Communication with the tour provider was outstanding. Phil met us at our hotel on time and was very courteous. He listened to our wishes, and even though we didn't have specific places we wanted to visit, Phil recommended a tour which was outstanding. Even though the weather was fairly typical for this time of year, cool and wet, we pushed through and visited many mines, Penzance, St Ives, Lands End, Mousehole, and several Poldark locations used for filming. He allowed us ample time for walking and hiking and brought along a large umbrella for our use. He was very well versed on the history of the area, and we stopped at a country side pub for a lovely lunch of pasties and English roast sirloin of beef with yorkshire pudding, potatoes and fresh vegetables! 😋 yum! Phil showed us the out of the way historical markers, such as a historical field of prehistoric markers in a farmers field which could be visited by the public, similar to Stonehenge. Of course, we did visit the field, albeit the mud, wet and cool weather! I also got a lot of pictures of the lovely daffodils in bloom around Cornwall! It was a bit muddy that day, but we had a great time! My husband and I highly recommend this tour and really really appreciated Phil as our tour guide!

Doug is an amazing tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Cornwall & surrounding area & about many of the Poldark filming locations. He made the tour unforgettable. I highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful time spending two days with Doug seeing so many amazing places in Cornwall. We did his "Lizard Peninsula" and "Poldark & West Cornwall" tours across the two days, with a few tweaks here and there to accommodate our specific interests. Before the trip, he was very responsive to all of my questions, and during the tour he did a wonderful job driving us through and to places we never could have found or navigated on our own. He is very knowledgable about the area and all the places we visited. It was our first trip to Cornwall, and we couldn't have asked for a better introduction to all of the beautiful places it has to offer!
