Fantastic views throughout. Authentic steam train with lovely old carriages. Dartmouth harbour was lovely with plenty of shops and places to eat. It was lovely seeing lots of people enjoying the harbour and the lovely weather and watching people painting the views.

£19 for a good day out-upgrade on train to observation carriage-one way ony £1.50extra.
River cruise is excellent and if its hot will cool you down with bar on board
Falmouth is more expensive than surrounding areas so do be careful if on a budget

We went on the round robin ticket - train, ferry, boat cruise up to Totnes and an open top bus journey back to Paignton. The weather was glorious and we thoroughly enjoyed our day, leaving Paignton at 10-30 gave us almost three hours in Dartmouth before our river trip and we returned to Paignton at 5-45. Excellent day out.

We were so lucky to take this trip; we saw things that we would never have seen without this ride. Agatha Cristie's home was lovely. This was a unique way to see the countryside.
