Can only endorse previous comments on the excellence of our tour which took us from the Cathedral to the Quay. Our guide Lindsay was very informative and knowledgeable. Our first time in Exeter and a very good introduction to the City

We had an excellent tour yesterday with a very enthusiastic and informative guide. We saw and learnt many things we would not have discovered for ourselves. Highly recommend this tour.

I went on the Medieval and City Walls tours. Both were excellent, very interesting, with both historic overviews and lots of specific detail. The guides were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I discovered little places I hadn't noticed before, and learned the origins of some of sayings like 'piss poor' and 'living on a shoe string' (go on a tour and find out!).
Highly recommended.
Well done Exeter Council for providing these free.

Had an enjoyable tour on Friday morning taking in the old and new sites of Exeter. We met by the German Christmas market in the Cathedral Yard and after a 15 minute introductory history of the city our guide took us around the town pointing out various points of interest over the course of the 90 minutes. Unfortunately the weather was wet and horrible but our guide was cheery and interesting throughout. The group was a mix of various nationalities and ages and if you have a spare couple of hours in Exeter I highly recommend.

I had enjoyed other free tours taken in previous years, this time I went on the Medieval Tour. Although it was a breezy day there were about 20 of us on the tour. The guide obviously enjoyed talking about Exeter and kept the large group entertained throughout. We ran slightly over 90 minutes and a fair bit of walking was involved. It was time well spent.
