    Departing from London in the morning, you’ll head straight for one of England’s most history-rich cities, Winchester. Ambling the paths and lanes of the ancient city, you’ll have free time to stop by the glorious cathedral, the ancient mill, a bevy of cute cafes, and more than enough museums.

Our driver Jeff was marvellous, he told loads of fun and interesting stories, kept the spirits up when we got in a traffic jam on our way back to London, had tons of fun surprises for us along the way and was the perfect man to guide us through the wonderful landscape and charming villages in Cornwall and Devon. The tour gives you a great first insight and an overview of this region, the chosen BnBs were lovely, clean, and always just a quick walk from the town.

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.
