A guided tour of North Cornwall.

Leave the car behind, come with Gorgeous Glenys and Chris to explore some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK.

It's not just pretty, it's an incredibly old landscape and it's history goes back beyond the dawn of civilisation.
Cornwall is littered with stone circles and ancient burial mounds, some of which we visit.

It's your holiday, your tour, your pace.

To visit all the locations on the tour in a leisurely fashion we need two days.

If you allow only one day for the tour it will be less leisurely, lunch will be taken "on the go" and don't book an early dinner!

You can also take part of this tour on a single half day.

A group of 6 people sharing the cost of this single half day tour would pay £39 per head.
