Reviews

  • Stunning views - The views from the boat were stunning and the handy (and hilarious) commentary by the crew helped point out things of local interest. Loved it :)
  • Amazing - Best day out of our holiday. I would recommend this trip to anyone. It’s such great value for money and honestly such a special day out for all. We will definitely be back!
  • Agatha Christie country - The ride on the train is beautiful right along the coast & Dart valley. You can also take your well behaved dog. I would highly recommend this excursion, we go every time that we are in Devon, it is not to be missed.
