90 minutes free education and entertainment in a beautiful and historic city, whats not to like? Although some parts of this tour touched on things I already knew there was stil plenty to learn. We visited some churches I had never seen inside before as well as going into the Catacombs for the first time. As usual on these tours... More

We have enjoyed an excellent walking tour of Exeter, lead by Tony our distinguished red coat guide. The tour was a whistlestop tour of the key points of interest. Tony combined enthusiasm and professionalism with a charming sense of humour. Thank you very much.

A rich programme conducted with enthusiasm and great ability by pleasant, passionate and experienced volunteer! They made me fall in love with Exeter and they acted like a magnet, attracting me from the countryside to Exeter many times.... just to have a new tour (I participated in 4 tours, one better than the last). Thank you!!! Silvia, Italy

Enjoyed the free 1-1/2 hour tour of "Forgotten Exeter." The guide was interesting and informative as we walked briskly around the city. I took the train round trip from Totnes to Exeter and back which was quick (under 30 min.), inexpensive, and with lovely views of the coast. The walk from the train station into the heart of Exeter was... More

Enjoyed the walking tour - but it's Exeter and you cannot go wrong. It's a lovely city. With only a few of us on the tour the guide Peter, I believe his name was, was very enthusiastic - and having to deal with non-stop gruelling often repetitive questions from another participant dominating the tour, he did very well. He was... More

We took the tour called Cathedral Close I believe. It was a tour of the churches and cathedral and ended with the catacombs. Our tour guide was excellent. You just show up for the tour. No reservations are required. I really can't say enough about this tour. A great idea!

These tours are a great way to get an overview of Exeter. There are several tours you can go on, I went on the 'introduction to Exeter' tour. The lady who lead the tour was well informed and showed us various sights, the Roman walls, the cathedral and more and told us about the history of them. There was plenty... More

We wanted to learn more about Exeter and found the Red Coat person who took us around was great. Apart from have an enormous amount of knowledge he had he also really enjoyed the opportunity to talk about his city. We had a 4 day stop in Exeter and our Red Coat tour, Exeter Old and New, on Friday 30... More

Had a personal tour with guide Dave as there was only myself and my wife on it. Its free for a start, you would pay good money in many other places for a history tour of this length. Its an ideal way to see the City and learn all about it. Would highly recommend it, and thanks Dave, it was... More
