“A fantastic day to remember with Vintage Adventure Tours!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

My husband and I have just returned home to Derby after touring round some of the beautiful sights in Derbyshire with our wonderful chauffeur Steven White. Steven picked us up from Winster and were driven, feeling rather like royalty and waving to walkers and cyclists, with the hood down in the 1929 model A Ford. Steven is passionate about both his car, which is kept in tip top condition, and the gorgeous Derbyshire countryside, and he was happy to stop and let my husband take photographs. We stopped for afternoon tea at one of the most perfect spots we have been to in Over Haddon, near beautiful Lathkill Dale, and the memories of the gorgeous views, and the huge portion of coconut cake we each had (!!!) will last for a long time.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Vintage Adventure Tours to anyone who loves old cars and the countryside...you certainly get a great view from a vintage car!!

“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

What a fabulous surprise by my wife for myself and two friends (plus Molly the dog) a truly wonderful day that will stay in my memory for ever. We arrived at Winster to be greeted by our chauffeur for the day Steven White in his model A 1929 Ford .We then set off to see the fantastic scenery of the peak district on the Dovedale and Manifold tour. The weather was hot and sunny so the hood was down all adding to the experience. Steven is a great chauffeur with so much local knowledge of the area to share with us. Steven stopped regularly to allow us to either visit the shops in the villages, walk along the river or to take many photos.
I would thoroughly recommend Vintage Adventure Tours to anyone wishing to spend a day in Derbyshire.

“Beautiful Derbyshire in a stunning car”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We spent the morning on the Dovedale and Manifold tour. It was thrilling to be sitting in a vintage car driving through spectacular scenery including at one point through a ford. The sun was shining and the top was down. We had stops along the way and our driver Stephen told us lots of interesting facts about places we passed. Thanks Stephen we enjoyed your company and your wonderful car - a great way to spend a few hours in Derbyshire.

“A perfect anniversary”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This was a really lovely day out for our wedding anniversary. Steven is a great chauffeur, both knowledgeable and very friendly. We opted for the Dovedale & Manifold tour and we're glad we did - the scenery is simply amazing and we were on lovely small roads for the vast majority of the time. We stopped off in a few places, including a vintage sweet shop and the lovely Casterne Hall and Steven was only too happy to offer suggestions or give interesting information about where we were. This was a very memorable afternoon and a perfect way to spend our special day.

“This is the way to go.”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

What a fabulous day. Classic vintage car, top down and a driver who knows how to make the most of it. This is motoring the way it should be. No motorways, no traffic jams, just quiet open roads and mile upon mile of fantastic scenery. We felt like royalty. This is the best possible way to enjoy the Peak District.

Thanks John for your great review. We had a fabulous day, feeding the ducks at Tissington, the stepping stones at Dovedale, picnic in the Manifold Valley..... You should try our other tours - you really do see a lot more from the old Ford - I guess it's because you are sat much higher looking over the stone walls.
