    Right from check in we knew we were in for a good day. Geoff and Toni were our crew and they couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly, professional and informative. Both have a great sense of humour to keep the commentary light while covering a lot of the history of the area.

    We had a spectacular day cruising up the Tamar river, gorgeous views, and commentary informative, but not intrusive. Simple food/ wine and a beer tasting. Two locals and a interstater, we all had an enjoyable time.
