Our full-day tour with Barry, in a comfortable Land Rover Discovery, was a highlight of our stay. taking in numerous places around the coasts, including Boscastle, St Ives, Lands End and the Mimac Theatre, and the Geevor Tin Mine. It was informative, engaging and insightful. It was a pleasure to let Barry navigate the narrow, twisty roads and to enjoy the locations. Thoroughly recommended.

My friend and I traveled to Cornwall for three days. We had decided to book a tour since we did not want to rent a car nor drive the narrow roads. We booked with Barry and had such a fabulous time!! Barry was very knowledgable about the area, being a born and bred Cornishman. I was feeling ill the first day so we had to cut our tour short but he was able to accommodate us on our second day by coming two hours early. I had emailed him before our trip to let him know what we were looking for in a tour and he more than delivered! He knew all the wonderful out of the way places, absolutely stunning scenery and we were very comfortable in his Land Rover. He is a careful driver and had so many stories regarding Cornwall. He was professional yet lighthearted and joyful, and it seemed as if we had a good friend showing us the sights. We can't recommend him enough! It was the best way to see this beautiful part of the world, thank you Barry!

Barry Pengelly is a terrific guide. Four of us had three different guides during our week long stay in Cornwall and Barry was the best by far. Wish he was the only guide we had. Barry was knowledgeable and was sensitive to our needs. We toured around in his Land Rover comfortably. He is a very careful driver which we all appreciated especially on these narrow Cornwall lanes. Barry did a west Cornwall tour and a Lizard Peninsula tour with us over two days. Barry knew which tourist trap to avoid and where the hidden gems are. We saw some beautiful sceneries and heard some funny stories. We would recommend Barry’s services to our friends unreservedly. And he is a great photographer!

I spent a month in England and the bank holiday weekend in Cornwall was the highlight of my trip. My niece and I took a train to Falmouth and booked Cornwall Discovery to take us around to see more of the area. Our day with Barry was wonderful and I highly recommend his tours. He arrived at our hotel on time in the morning and took us all around Cornwall. Tintagel, Bodmin Moor, Port Isaac, and the surrounding areas were all beautiful and our day with Barry was worth every cent. I highly recommend Cornwall Discovery's services and will use again when I travel to the area with my family.

5 day tour with Barry was an absolute delight. Barry knows the hidden gems of Cornwall. I'm a confident driver but there were a couple of really narrow streets I would have been scared to take a hire car through. Barry was extremely knowledgeable and has a love of his home county. He was very helpful and accommodating and highly recommend him for any of his tours.
