Reviews

  • Superb - Just loved the steam train from Paignton and boat trip in Dartmouth. A real old fashioned journey, social distancing in place. Great scenery and v.friendly helpful crew.
  • Scenic excursion - The journey from Paignton to Kingswear was a beautiful mixture of country and coast. The trains are vintage carriages and passengers are spaced out for safety. Lovely.
  • All lovely - All done very well. Everything clean (train/boats), staff friendly and commentary on the river cruise added a bit of fun. Really good day out, lots of families. Take hats, drinks and dogs! If you have one.
