We visited St Ives in May and joined the tour, not having had time to book in advance. It was just as described by other reviewers; very knowledgeable, friendly and informative. Highly recommended!

This morning I did a walking tour, over 2 hours with Tony a local retired school teacher. This was the best local tour I have done anywhere. Tony was informative interesting and gave great insight into this very beautiful place. All for a tiny sum of money!!

Last week we joined Dawn on her Monday walking tour and had a wonderful time. Her enthusiasm was catching and was not dampened by a sudden shower,.After hearing Dawn's explanations about street and house names we looked on the town in a new light and investigated more than we may otherwise have done. We also particularly enjoyed seeing the paintings in the Guildhall which were terrific. As a tour guide myself I would definitely recommend this tour for an introduction to this lovely town.

We have just returned from a wild and windy walk round St Ives with Dawn which was a real treat. From the moment Dawn met us on the steps of the Guildhall you knew it was going to be a good walk. Dawn was so friendly and so informative with many anecdotes that a guide book wouldn't
Always include. We were very lucky to be in such a small group of about 8 people. Dawn's enthusiasm shone through and we learnt so many new facts about our favourite holiday place in England. We would highly recommend. If you want to find out why some doors in St Ives were painted either black, green or blue go on Dawns tour and you will learn the answer plus lots more fascinating facts. Thank you Dawn for a great tour.
