Fabulous trip along the river dart, many trips available with very informative commentary. A lot of History including views of Dartmouth Castle and much more along the way.

Taking the ferry from Dartmouth on a lovely trip up the Dart to Agatha Christie's holiday home is the best way to do it. Saves all the hassle of the traffic and parking (you can only drive and park there if you book it). The house is very interesting and full of different collections of china etc. Apparently they have... More

I have done this trip twice now. The ferry takes you towards the holiday home of Agatha Christie and then it turns around and heads out to Dartmouth castle. It's a lovely view to take in and is made even better if it is a sunny and warm day. Definitely worth the visit when in Dartmouth.

We cancelled the sat nav and I reminisced my childhood journey from 1960s and was pleasantly surprised it still ran. It really is a hop on hop off with just enough time to pay . It cuts off a good hour from the forever queues around the Torquay area. Give it a try you wont be sorry.

Lovely to cruise along the river to get to Agatha Christie's summer holiday home on the banks of the River Dart. Best way to get there, although be warned of a steep hill to walk up to the house, however the NT do provide a car to drive the rest of us up to the entrance.

Great value at £7.50 return journey from Torquay to Dartmouth - departs at set times just once per day but the times were ideal and it gave us three hours in Dartmouth, arriving at lunchtime. The commentary both ways from staff on the boat was funny and entertaining. Brilliant trip... Thanks very much indeed.

It is a short trip up the river but there are glimpses of the house and views of the boat house from the river. The commentary on the return journey was very informative and humorous.

Booked a trip to Greenway online. The website was easy to follow and the whole process straightforward. Finding the pier and the boat was easy and the trip enjoyable. We were very fortunate with the weather which certainly helps, when you sail beyond Berry Head it is a very different experience than being in the Bay!! The crew were very... More

A pleasant trip up the beautiful River Dart to Agatha Christie's summer home 'Greenways' on a sunny, warm afternoon. A steep walk up to the house [not recommended for the less-agile] from the quay. A very interesting house although perhaps a little less grand than one first expects. A walk through the gardens down to the water's edge is very... More
