We thought we knew Buxton, having visited it so many times, yet we still learnt an awful lot on this fun tour. Very enjoyable and highly recommended.

We are so glad we did this tour! Michael was informative and fun. We went into St Anne's church and The Dome which we'd never have known about or visited without this tour.

Michael gave us a friendly and informative tour of Buxton in the converted milk float. Some little gems such as the 17th century church/barn/school.

Our guide was amusing and informative. The tour bus was delightful with plenty of blankets to either keep you warm or soften the seat. Great fun way to see the town .

We thought Fred the driver was very good and we enjoyed seeing inside the dome and the small church. The tour is good value and very informative.

We had a brilliant time. Saw parts of Buxton we would never have seen otherwise. Michael (the guide), was really enthusiastic and a wealth of local knowledge. Can't recommend this experience enough. The most fun you can have on a milk float.
