Take a tour
Cornwall is, of course, a wonderful place to visit. But have you ever considered taking a private guided tour for a true Cornish experience?
After working in the Duchy’s hospitality and tourism industry for more than 20 years, Louise West had a dream to set up her very own tour guide business. Drawing on her local knowledge and love for her county, ‘Experience Cornwall Tours’ was created to share, with visitors, Cornwall’s unique combination of beauty, heritage, culture and hospitality.
“When I visit somewhere new, I want to really experience the place, meet its people, discover its secrets, find the most scenic spots off the main tourist routes, and eat the local cuisine,” explains Louise. “So on all my tours, I offer guests just that. Not just a scenic tour, but a true Cornish experience.”
On a tour with Louise, not only will you visit must-see attractions and hidden gems, but you will also have the opportunity to walk a stretch of the South West Coast Path, which is renowned as being one of the most spectacular coastal trails in the country. You’ll also explore Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, of which Cornwall has 12, delve into Cornwall’s mining heritage which has UNESCO status, and enjoy a traditional Cornish cream tea picnic to top off the whole experience.
A guided tour means that Louise and the team take care of all the driving, and if you have been lucky enough to visit Cornwall before, you will know that our narrow, high, dry stone walled lanes can be challenging to navigate. Not only will you have a safe outing while being driven by a certified advanced driver, you can even be collected from your Cornish accommodation’s front door, which, of course, means no designated driver! You are on holiday after all, and there are plenty of award-winning beverages to enjoy with your lunch, which Experience Cornwall Tours can also make recommendations for.
Put simply, with Louise’s friendly demeanour, professional attitude and expert local knowledge, a tour with Experience Cornwall Tours promises to be the highlight of your holiday.
