Discover the legend of King Arthur and his wife Guinevere on a 2-day sightseeing tour of Cornwall, visiting the historic castle of Tintagel, source of the fabled Arthur’s Stone. Enjoy hikes across Dartmoor and along the banks of the wild Dart River, and imagine pixies, faeries, and wizards lurking among the woodland. Day 1: Drive from Glastonbury to Dartmoor to visit 2 parts of the wild Dart River in the remains of the ancient Dartmoor Forest. At Dartmeet there is a very old bridge made of large slabs of local stone that look megalithic. Stop off at an old hunting lodge for lunch. Then, visit Wistmans Woods to walk among miniature oak trees and large boulders, where it’s not hard to imagine pixies and faeries hiding. Next, visit the small church of Brentor, situated on a rocky hill dedicated to St. Michael, and connected to the Michael ley line. Day 2:
This was the best decision I have ever made to book with Tor"s tours.. I was lucky enough to get Tor himself as my guide.. He took me to the most beautiful places I have ever seen or felt.. they have changed me and will forever be apart of my heart. I would have never found these place on my own. He knows every crack and crevice of the land and the best places to eat. Tintagel and Merlin's cave are the places where you can feel and see why these lands inspired the legends and myths. St. Nectans Glen was truly the most beautiful place I have ever seen in my life, it WILL touch your soul. It's the place all the fairies have gone to hide safely and dance free thru the forest. The waterfall is a sight to behold as it gentlt cleanses your spirit. Dartmoor's forest was full of amazing energy like I have never felt. Mystical and beautiful.. Then when you step inside the St. Michael de Rupert church not only is the view amazing but the energy from the ley lines can be felt by all. GO!!!!

Port Isaac is stunning and yes you can experience the Village by yourself but this tour offers so much more, we were taken around by someone who’s not only a local but an actor who’s been in Doc Martin, his knowledge is excellent, and explains not only the locations used, which characters lived or work where but also the history of the village through the ages, there are so many extra hidden secrets that on your own you would definitely miss. Thanks so much was excellent
This was an excellent mix of Doc Martin stories and local history. Our guide is part of the “extras” cast on the show so we got super insider information! It lasts an hour and a half, has some steep steps but the pace was slow so even a 85 year old man on our tour managed ok.
The guided tour was very interesting and covered not only facts about the making of Doc Martin and the places used in filming, but also historical facts about Port Isaac. Well worth the ticket price.
Really enjoyed the tour...not only the Doc Martin elements but the local history as well.
Lots of fun facts. Great tour guide. Adorable town. Recommend for any Doc Martin fans.
