“Learnt a lot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

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 May was a highlight. We really enjoyed our stay overall and commend the Exeter Council for running such a great program.

“A free walking tour of Exeter - Brilliant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

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 raining but we didn't notice as you made it really interesting.
