My wife and I were looking for something to do on our first wedding anniversary. We found the ticket office for greenway tours in torquay marina, and we are so glad we did. We decided on "the fairmile" full day gold tour. Just one word, amazing!! RML 497 is an amazing piece of living history, lovingly restored by the two... More

Bought tickets for The Fairmile cruise from an abrasive seller and was told (as were it seems many other passengers) they were the last seats. Made our way to catch the 10:45 sailing and waited and waited. Another person arrived and told us the boat was going to be at least 20 mins late as the boat was blocked in... More

Firstly, the Torquay - Brixham ferry is a bargain. It's only £1 each way per adult. Fantastic value. It takes about 30 minutes per journey and the boat is sufficient. It's not cramped and you get great views across the whole of Torbay. There is plenty of outside seating on the ferry both at the front and the back of... More

We had a great trip with Greenway on their WW2 Fairmile from Torquay to the house where Agatha Christie spent her summers on the river Dart. The crew were fantastic with plenty of local knowledge and some good humour. They were very attentive to the needs of the passengers and everything was done with a smile on their faces. We... More

Spent a great 6 hours. This trip is great value for money. This is the second time we have done the trip to Slapton Sands, and we have loved it both times. The boat adds to the whole experience, as it is a piece of history. It is very appropriate for the Gold trip. The retelling of Operation Tiger is... More

Took the ferry from Torquay to Brixham. At £2 return, and a half hour ride each way this could not be beaten!

The vintage bus tour from Torquay to Greenway, the summer residence of Agatha Christie, was extremely enjoyable. The Bus Driver is very knowledgeable, not only about Agatha Christie, but also the history of the whole area and keeps you entertained for the whole trip. Excellent.
