Excellent guide & drver, Dean, made the tour.
Only 10 in our group yet split into 3 different places each night. There was a huge difference in the quality of the accommodation- from very poor guest houses to hotels and far apart, making it hard to join up for dinner or evenings. Plus we didn’t have the locations nor names of the other places. Maybe that was so we couldn’t compare our accommodations! Do not use Telstar ‘hotel’ Exeter again for your patrons. Annoying for the 3 of us to walk 20min. to city centre that was basically closed on a cold sprinkling Monday evening. Then to learn next morning that 6 (3 separate couples) stayed in a hotel with a dining room & bar open in evening. And we were stuck there for a second evening. In Falmouth, we were all separated again! Some had a hotel with dining room open at night again. My husband & I were in the excellent Westcott Guest House - but just us 2 so not possible to mix with the other 8 people. Only good thing all 4 nights, was the strong free wifi.
Be prepared to know some or if only a little, the history in the places go to with Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury. Oh an make sure you take some wet weather gear in case it rains and dont forgot it, cause i certainly forgot mine lol. However this, i will say. Tony our guide was more than happy to lend his umbrella. He was fantastic, friendly, open/honest and a great sense of humor mixed in with being very knowledgeable of the history on places went to see. He did a great job getting around despite the major delays getting out of London at first which was really unfortunate. I highly recommend going on this trip and seek out Tony if you can!
It's a long drive to Glastonbury but the tour guide kept providing us information along the way so when we got to the place we understood the culture of the place, the essence so well captured during the journey. For a day trip it takes long to get to the place but it's really enjoyable. Also cheddar Gorge was a surprise and absolutely loved the experience and later buying cheese from where it's originally made.
Very nice tour where you can have an overwiew on Devon and Cornwall. Tour members were nice and we can feel the passion of the tour guide, Dave, for the countryside, he gaves a lot of details and stories while driving, very entertaing. Tour well organised, and the bed&breakfeasts where we stayed were very nice. I can only recommend it
