Overview

A very relaxed way of seeing Fowey. We will take you places you probably would miss and tell you things you certainly would not have known to give you a real flavour of the ancient port of Fowey. One of the nicest things to do in Fowey. Our tour takes 25 minutes during which time we tell you tales of of the past, snippets of today, and all the time you will see some magnificent views We start from Town Quay and operate everyday at 11.00am (Sunday start 12.00)from 1st May to 30th Sept (weather permitting!!).

An excellent start to our visit to Fowey and good value. It gave us the opportunity to see an extensive area of the town in 30 minutes, before deciding where to explore on foot. Toured from quayside to high vantage points looking over the estuary....More

It seems silly but we really enjoyed the ride. The friendly guide told us everything we should learn about Fowey. Only half an hour for 5 pounds but a good start for a Fowey visit.

Les drove and Shirley commented on this excellent trip around Fowey. Shirley was very informative and entertaining and we were taken to parts of Fowey that we probably would not have discovered on a day trip. Very good value.

Really enjoyed this visit. Well worthwhile to get some local history. The tour leaves more or less when it’s full or when they think no more clients will appear
