A fantastic way to see the sights and hear the history of Buxton. Our tour guide, and driver, was Mike. So entertaining, friendly and knowledgeable. We had hot water bottles, blankets and could have had hot chocolate for the trip. Definitely recommend this tour.

Our trip on this Victorian tram ( converted from a milk float) was informative and fun. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we stopped at the Dome which was amazing and also at St Anne's church in Higher Buxton. I would definitely recommend this tour.

The converted milk float is an experience not to be missed, it may not be the fastest but it gives you plenty of time to take in the sites.
