  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Blenheim palace was amazing, I could have spent more time there. The Cotswolds town was lovely and picturesque but busy. Downton Abbey Village a bit boring unless you are a fan.

    Wonderful half day trip down the river, made even more special because we managed to spot 5 Seals! Highly recommend booking a trip with Paddle Devon.

    This was a great experience. Ian was very professional and calm. He carefully went through the pre-flight checks and explained the controls to me throughout the flight. As it was quite windy, we didn't glide but flew instead. As I had flown briefly 40 years ago briefly, he was keen for me to try again. He gave me a really long time at the controls and encouraged me all the time showing me the impact of each control.

    Excellent views and such a feeling of calm and safety. Ian is a very genuine guy and it was a pleasure to spend an hour with him.

    Although we live only 30 mins drive away from Dartmoor, we knew very little about it. But after a day with Nigel, it's opened our eyes to this wonderful, natural parkland on our doorstep. His communication prior to the tour was first class. We started the tour with the best coffee on Dartmoor, followed by a walk around Ashburton, visiting one of the oldest pubs in the UK and the headstone of the man who inspired the title of Conan Doyle's best known novel. Lunch at Warren House, one of highest and remotest pubs in England was such a pleasant surprise - log fires (which have been burning for over 200 years) and home cooked food in this cosy pub was wonderful. En route, Nigel would stop the car and take us to places that we never knew existed. The stone circles dating back thousands of years were breath-taking. I would encourage anyone who visits Devon to book a tour with Nigel - the memories we have taken away are priceless!

    A wonderful morning's walk around Brixham with Nigel. His knowledge of and enthusiasm for the area was outstanding. I learned so much about an area I'd stayed in more than once and some English history as well.
    Thoroughly recommend the tour

    Ian the instructor was incredibly friendly and made me feel at ease the entire time. The experience was very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone. Ian navigated with confidence and took me on a beautiful scenic route. I will definitely be looking to rebook in the future. 5* and more for you Ian! Thank you again.

    A great way to see Devon! The trip was really well organised and smooth. Also a great way to get out and about and meet new people (Hi Lizzie and George!). We felt it was great value, and it got us out of the pub, seeing things I am sure we would have missed!!

    Fantastic experience from first to last, Elaine was so well organized and welcoming. Lots of fun side trips that Bob organized to perfection, great ideas and great fun. I could have stayed on much longer! Dartmoor is a magical place and Liberty Trails is a wonderful way to enjoy it.

    Tim was a fantastically knowledgeable and passionate guide. Had excellent knowledge but also didn’t push too much technical jargon onto our group, which was fantastic for half the group who were only interested in the wine tasting aspect!!

    The vineyard is in beautiful surroundings and is a very well worth visit when in/around Exeter.

    The wines (2 still white, 2 sparkling white and 1 sparkling rose) are fantastic too!

    Thoroughly enjoyed our guided walk through the woods around Okehampton. Arrangements were well communicated and Matt proved to be a knowledgable and interesting guide, was generous with his time and gave lots of interesting information about the history of the woods as well as of the flora and fauna. Really enjoyable, informative morning, visiting places and habitat that I didn’t know existed. Learned a lot thanks to Matt’s wealth of knowledge of his subject and of the area. Highly recommended.
