We booked a two person tour as I had a mobility scooter and thought it would be easier, and we were not sure what to expect, WOW what a great tour Larry was our tour guide and how lucky were we. Larry Bowden has so much knowledge, experience about horses makes him perfect for this role, and he also has great understanding of my mobility requirements. He came across as someone who has so much passion about this industry. He should be really proud of how he handles the customers and the company should be so grateful that Larry and his passion is explained to us in great detail. Thank you Larry you are amazing and a legend. Keep doing what you do. Brian & Helen 9/5/22

Very enjoyable morning. Great guides who were very informative. Transport was good but felt a bit full. Warren Hill visit wasn’t timed the best in all honesty as we didn’t see that many horses. Stable visit was ok but at a very small trainer. National stud visit was good. We witnessed a covering and saw 3 stallions.

Dear Neild529 Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you didn't see as many horses on the Gallops as you would have liked but as you can imagine numbers do vary. However, we are pleased you enjoyed your guided tour of the National Stud and thank you for your high praise of our guides.

We brought our granddaughters here yesterday who are horse mad The tour at the stud was ok but as teenagers they found they didn’t relate well to the guide . We thought he was good but as he was probably around 60-70 a number of the younger ones also struggled That said we saw plenty and I think the girls enjoyed

We visited the Jockey Club in Newmarket with Discover Newmarket - the tour included afternoon tea. The Jockey Club is fascinating, tour guide was very good, tour extensive and well organised and the tea excellent - what more can I add. (Given the very high quality of the afternoon tea in beautiful surrounds, we felt the overall price was reasonable)

Our Private Ultimate Newmarket Experience was awesome. Just the 4 of us made it ultimately private which was great. Larry our tour guide was amazing. Full of incredible Newmarket knowledge! We were so well cared for. He was considerate and went over and beyond with attention to detail even to the point of realising we had got a bit cold in the wintertime showers so suggesting a detour to Tattersalls for a bit of indoor activity which was so fantastic to witness. We had the best day EVER! Thank you Larry 💙
