While we were in Penzance in September my wife and I booked a private “Mysterious Penwith Tour” with Rory Goodall. Rory took us on a very informative tour of Cornwall Celtic Bronze and Iron Age sacred, burial and village sites. Rory provided a well informed and professional introduction to Cornwall’s ancient Celtic history and legends. His love for the land,... More

Excellent very informative rib tour by Rory. Gave plenty of natural history commentary and humorous local stories. Although we unfortunately didn't see any whales or basking sharks on this occasion, we were lucky enough to see some porpoises and many different sea birds. We had a wonderful 3hr trip and would thoroughly recommend this afternoon out.

We went on an ocean trip both in 2012 and again recently in August 2013. We booked again because of Rory's knowledge and upmost respect for nature and conservation issues. This year we were not disappointed seeing a sunfish, small pod of porpoises and about 4-5 basking sharks, we were able to turn the boat engine off and watch a... More

I can thoroughly recommend a trip with Elemental Tours. We had a great trip out from Penzance with Rory and 8 other people. Rory is an excellent guide (who also sounds like Bricktop :-)) and its easy to see his passion for the marine life. He is also very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about the marine life and...

We highly recommend a boat trip with Elemental Tours. You couldn't find a better guide than Rory, he knows this part of the coast and the ocean like its his back garden and cares passionately about the local environment & wildlife. The boat itself is pretty fast & my teenage sons thought the trip was amazing, really exciting, and that... More

We had an amazing day with Rory Goodall from Elemental Tours visiting ancient sites in the Penzance area. We visited ancient sacred springs, ruins of an ancient village, King Arthur's Table, ancient grave sites, a stone circle and saw the beautiful Lands End views. The wonderful thing was that Rory avoided the crowded tourist locations and showed us sites that... More

We had a great day with Rory Goodall who showed us a lot of beautifull and interesting places in West Penwith in Cornwall. We visited Carn Euny, an ancient village near Sancreed , Boscawen-UN a stone circle close to St Buryan, Cape Cornwall , St.Just and many more. We learned a lot from Rory and had a lovely day.

Took a 3hour trip with Elemental Tours on the 21st September after seeing them mentioned in BBC Wildlife Magazine. We took the trip in the hope to see Basking Sharks! We were also out at sea for longer than the three hours! I was very apprehensive about taking a trip on the boat as I have never been on a... More

Went out with Rory on 8 September 2012 with two friends and had a great afternoon with lots to see, basking sharks galore, bottle nose dolphins and porpoises. Been coming to Porthcurno for years but first time out on a boat. Really enjoyed the generous sharing of local and conservation knowledge that Rory was happy to provide. We had good... More
