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

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

What a delightful little port town with lots of history and beautiful views that you see on the tour. Our guide was fun and informative and the tour was short (about 30 minutes) and we just loved what we got for the very inexpensive price....More

I really recommend taking this adorable tour before wandering through the town. They point out lots of little curios that you will want to go back and take a closer look at. The tour goes around steep parts otherwise you may never see.

Good value tour for the family starting at the harbour and going all the way around the inner town then outer edges and overlooking the town. Tour guide was a local giving lovely insight, anecdotes and funny comments throughout the tour.

what they say on the board is true, if you dont do this tour, you are likely to see only a fraction of Fowey. the tour guide knew her stuff, the driver had the banter. nice and relaxing way to spend a little time

Full of humour and very entertaining. Great way to see Fowey and its history. The lady doing the talking was great and the driver was great too. We asked if the kids could eat their picnic in the trailer, which we were told was fine....More
