We had a great tour of Cathedral to Quay with Robert. It was highly informative, well paced and still enthusiastic despite the awful weather! There were a number of great looking tours on different themes - highly recommended!

Local folks walk you through different aspects of Exeter. The haunted place tour in October is a real treat. The people are friendly, know what they are talking about, and create a very welcoming event. And it's free!

76th anniversary of the Exeter blitz and so important to reflect and remember. Our knowledgeable guide gave lots of information and stories that brought the history alive. We hope to do all of the tours so far all excellent.
