If your interested in seeing the historic port city of Falmouth, it's unique architecture and social history to gain an understanding how it began in the mid 1700's, the emancipation, and the transition to independence you should take the Falmouth Heritage Walking Tour!

We spent a wonderful couple of hours walking around Falmouth -- getting off the beaten path. There are quite a few historical buildings, ranging from derelict to well restored. Our guide was knowledgeable about all of them.

Many thanks to Simone for guiding us on this fun and informative walking tour. We hadn't seen this much Georgian architecture in one place before. With Simone's help, we'll be able to spot this much more easily in future. A fantastic trip around the highlights of Falmouth, without any time pressures, as there was only the two of us. We...
