What people are saying about St Ives
Only 10 in our group yet split into 3 different places each night. There was a huge difference in the quality of the accommodation- from very poor guest houses to hotels and far apart, making it hard to join up for dinner or evenings. Plus we didn’t have the locations nor names of the other places. Maybe that was so we couldn’t compare our accommodations! Do not use Telstar ‘hotel’ Exeter again for your patrons. Annoying for the 3 of us to walk 20min. to city centre that was basically closed on a cold sprinkling Monday evening. Then to learn next morning that 6 (3 separate couples) stayed in a hotel with a dining room & bar open in evening. And we were stuck there for a second evening. In Falmouth, we were all separated again! Some had a hotel with dining room open at night again. My husband & I were in the excellent Westcott Guest House - but just us 2 so not possible to mix with the other 8 people. Only good thing all 4 nights, was the strong free wifi.
I have always wanted to see the spectacular scenery at Cornwall and we were extremely fortunate to get a last minute booking. Right from the moment that we started Glenn made us feel comfortable and relaxed. His knowledge of the area is amazing and he continually went the extra mile for us and did extra research to give us details relating to the relationship between Cornwall and our home of Tasmania. As we made up the tour group, Glenn was great and altered the itinerary to include Jamaica Inn, an absolute thrill for me. His tour included some well known and historical areas but there are some great lesser known gems that were a real highlight. This tour has been the best experience we have had while we have explored England. I know that we will be talking about it for years to come. I happily recommend this tour for all ages - I guarantee that you will not be disappointed! Thank you Glenn for the best 5 days possible. :)
Tour and tour guide were spectacular!! They even accomodatedbabrequatSharing of knowledge vs. quiet times was perfect. Transport extremely comfortable and accommodations neat, warm and welcoming. Based on this tour we would definitely book with Get Your Guide again.
Our driver/guide was a pleasant person and let us visit places that were not on the programm. We appreciared very much our stay in Falmouth, the Hotel was very good.
Everything was fine. The guide and driver Was polite and knowledgeable. I only expect some improvement in hotel quality. The locations however were very good.
