We only run private day tours. Every tour is run exclusively for you, your friends or family. No other guests/strangers will be included on your individual tour. You will only be accompanied by your guide and/or driver.

Generally, you can add as many people as you like to your tour, however, some tours will have restrictions. For example, for safety reasons, we only allow a restrictive number of guests on walking or cycling tours.

Sure! We love solo travelers! Be aware though that most costs are per tour, not per person.

All day tours include the services of an expert & engaging tour guide. Tours that cover longer distances will include transportation (this can be private vehicles or public transport). Some tours will include food & entrance fees. You can find out all inclusions on each tour page before you book.

This depends on the group size – we generally use Mercedes E-Class saloons or similar and for larger groups we use Mercedes V-Class, Ford Tourneo Custom or similar. Sometimes we may also use a 16-seat vehicle. On our eco tours we use public transport exclusively.

Very Easy: Paths with an even surface.

Easy: Similar to “Very Easy” but can involve more walking in general during the tour.

Moderate: Paths less well-surfaced and uneven in places. Other activities may be involved (e.g. easy cycling).

Challenging: Some open walking, scrambling over rocks and hands-and-feet work, particularly if wet. Longer distances covered. Cycling off-road.

Many tours depart from a easy central location such as the Adelphi Hotel near Lime Street Station but, often, we offer bespoke pick-up locations such as your hotel or cruise terminal. Speak to us before you arrive and we can usually accommodate easily & happily.

We are never far away from restrooms & we can usually accommodate you with an easy solution. Everywhere we stop for a longer period of time will have WC provided.

If you’ve had a great experience and you feel your driver/guide deserves a gratuity it will be accepted with thanks.

Never forget that you are in Britain – we have 4 seasons in one day sometimes… Generally though, we recommend you bring suitable clothing for changing weather and footwear (flat shoes that are comfortable to walk/cycle in) for your tour. Bring layers…

We can provide our tours for you in several languages – let us know at booking and we should be able to accommodate you in the following: English, German & French. We may also have other options for you. After visiting our FAQ page, simply get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.

During all day tours we provide a flexible cancellation policy in that you can cancel or reschedule up to 24h before departure of your tour. Our full Terms & Conditions can be found here.

Absolutely! No question – and if the ship did leave without you and it was our fault, we will provide transport to your next port of call. We can assure you though that this has never been required!
