Mike (guide) was a wealth of information. The 90 minutes went very quickly. The tour included areas not open to the public. The information was delivered in a very interesting way with humour. Highly recommended.

Our guide, Rob, made the tour about ‘Exeter old and new’ very interesting, explaining historic sites, place names and showing us photos of old Exeter. Even though I’ve been to the city several times I learnt a lot of new facts. Highly recommended.

We were on a short family break in a chilly April weekend. We got a nice retired gentleman as a guide and it really opened up bits of the city you’d never know or see by yourself. It was a great way to spend 90...More

sorry I only just saw this. They do Halloween tours for free. I hope you didn't miss it. If not I'm sure they will be running next year!
