Owner description: Heritage tour company showcasing the history and architecture of this magnificent spa town. Tours can be taken aboard the newly converted Victorian "tram" called The Wonder of the Peak. The tram is very special and can only carry 8 people so pre booking is recommended. We also offer guided walking tours,geology tours and Mary Queen of Scots tours. Featured on TV and radio. Please note the tram tours only operate regularly March to October and are weather affected. Seasonal opening times apply.

We had a wonderful trip on board of this little tram last Saturday, listening to the history and folklore about the places in Buxton. It has been like travelling across the time and having a tea with Mary Queen in the Old Hall Hotel or looking at times when Georgiana was there…

A truly worthy experience that will let you completely falling in love with Buxton! We are already planning our next trip there and maybe our next tour on this tram :)

We had a tour with Michael and it was brilliant. His knowledge and humourous telling of the history of Buxton combine well to give you an enjoyable and memorable, non-guidebook tour. We got to see inside the dome and the church that used to be a barn (can't remember the name - sorry).

He also recommended some places to visit, which we did.

Great job, hope to see you again.

Had a fantastic hour with Nick on the "Electric Cow" .

Many thanks to both Nick on the bus and Netta at the booking office / outside the Opera house. Real characters and so friendly and informative.
Make sure you give the bus a go ... well worth the money and you will discover some real gems along the way.
All the best for your continued success... you deserve it.
Will be back !!!!

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.

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.
