Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and charming tour guide made all the difference on a blowy, blustery day. Something for every interest, as well as bringing the history of St Ives over the centuries alive.

Thank you so much to Dawn, our walking tour guide. Her enthusiasm for and love of St Ives shone through on this tour. We found out so much about the history of St Ives as well as interesting local information. The best five pounds you can spend in St Ives.

A walking tour around 90 minutes long offering a good insight to the history of the town. The speaker spoke with good knowledge and clarity. An enjoyable tour for adults.

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

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.
