“Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We came across the Wonder of the Peaks on leaving the Pavilion Gardens and thought it would be a good idea to do the tour to find out a bit more about Buxton. What a delight! The guide was excellent (I'm afraid I can't remember his name, but he had a lovely Tyneside accent), very knowledgeable and humourous.

We were able to go into St Anne's church and the Devonshire Dome, which we would no doubt have missed if we'd just wandered aimlessly.

Excellent value for money.

“Great trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

I booked this tour as a Fathers day present for my 93 year old father. Not only did they offer to pick us up from our hotel (Lee Wood) but they gave us a great trip. We were very impressed by the tour guide's knowledge, and the stops were just right. Thank you Netta for your email communications, we can heartily recommend the tour.

“What a lovely way to spend a delightful hour in Buxton!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Thank you so much for a wonderful experience! I was so excited when I saw the little red tram I just had to have a ride on her :) We saw parts of Buxton that we wouldn't have discovered on our own, like the university dome which we were able to view inside, which was awesome and an unexpected treat.The whole experience was a real joy and made so especially because of the 'quirky' driver (in a sweet way) who was so incredibly knowledgeable about the town. He was lovely! I would thoroughly recommend a trip on the tram (a converted milk float) to anyone visiting Buxton, which is a pretty town just like a miniature Bath. It was only £6 each for an hour and well worth the money. I would thoroughly recommend.

“Great entertainment”

If you visit Buxton please take time to go on the Buxton Tram the drivers are informative and very entertaining and it was a great experience. I hope in future that Buxton have more of these trams available in the summer months.
