We visited St Ives in May and joined the tour, not having had time to book in advance. It was just as described by other reviewers; very knowledgeable, friendly and informative. Highly recommended!

This morning I did a walking tour, over 2 hours with Tony a local retired school teacher. This was the best local tour I have done anywhere. Tony was informative interesting and gave great insight into this very beautiful place. All for a tiny sum of money!!

Last week we joined Dawn on her Monday walking tour and had a wonderful time. Her enthusiasm was catching and was not dampened by a sudden shower,.After hearing Dawn's explanations about street and house names we looked on the town in a new light and investigated more than we may otherwise have done. We also particularly enjoyed seeing the paintings... More

We have just returned from a wild and windy walk round St Ives with Dawn which was a real treat. From the moment Dawn met us on the steps of the Guildhall you knew it was going to be a good walk. Dawn was so friendly and so informative with many anecdotes that a guide book wouldn't Always include. We... More

A friend and I joined Dawn Bright for one of her walks around St Ives on Monday, 2nd September. It was our first visit to the resort and Dawn brought the history of the place alive by her well-informed, enthusiastic and humorous talk. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and did not mind in the least that the walk overran its... More

We unknowingly happened to be in St Ives for the weekend Food and Drink Festival in early May and accidentally came across an advertisement for Dawn's Guided Tour of St Ives (£5 for a 75 minute tour), linking it with the Festival, and including 3 'tastings' on our way round. These added even more interest to the fantastic tour. As... More

A thoroughly enjoyable 1.5 hour walking guided tour of St Ives covering briefly some of the history focusing on fishing, mining and art and linking it together. Our guide was called Dawn Bright and we think her obvious knowledge and enthusiasm added enormously to the experience. At £5 per person great value. Thoroughly recommended.

I live locally and have been to St Ives many times, However I did not know how much I did not know. Walking with Dawn, our tour guide, through St Ives was a real gem of an experience for me. Dawn has a very pleasant manner and a vast amount of knowledge of this town and it seems cornwall and... More

We joined Dawn ona cold Thursday morning for a fabulous walking tour of St Ives. Although we had visited many times before her 75 minute walk around the back streets really filled out our knowledge of the Towns history and evolution. Dawn is particularlly informed on the art community and the tour starts with two magnificent work hidden inside the... More
