South Devon guided tours
If exploring the backwaters of South Devon with no hassle and with the promise of good food and fine wine along the way appeals then you’re the natural candidate for our new gastronomic tours. We have developed authentic cultural South Devon guided tours for adults who want real food, made from local artisan producers and day-boat caught fish. We have paired the tastings with local refreshments and fine wines to enhance the flavours and the atmosphere. Places are limited to preserve the exclusivity of the tours and personal experiences. However, we can tailor make any adventure for individuals or groups.
It is an all-inclusive tour and throughout we use food as a prism into the local culture, traditions and heritage, on a journey not possible without a driver, a skipper, a tractor and several boats. Our executive vehicle lifts you up above the hedgerows so that you can see the stunning landscape and the air-con keep you cool. While the Gourmet Guides cooler preserves any local produce souvenirs until the end of the tour. In the late afternoon, we take a stroll around the spectacular Sharpham Vineyard and enjoy a wine tasting and in the evening, we meander down the River Dart on a private cruise with a luxury hamper of Artisan cheese, wine, and local home-made cakes.
Along the way we provide binoculars for your enjoyment of the landscape and any nature we observe from migrating birds to seals. We also provide umbrellas and waterproofs so you don’t have to and blankets for our evening cruise or your afternoon siesta.
We will always meet you the evening prior at our recommended accommodators or at your chosen location for a bubbles reception. This is your opportunity to meet the other guests and personalise your Safari from your refreshments, preferred drinks for the river cruise, tastings, and content from culture, heritage, and level of banter. Tours are currently departing from Salcombe, Dartmouth, Totnes and Torbay and are organised to utilize the ebb and flow of the tides.
We can cater for corporate away days and these tours provide the perfect opportunity and location to develop your team-building away from the busy office environment. We will collect you at the train station in Totnes or Torbay and return you in time to get back to the city. Tours will differ depending on the size of your group and the boats, vehicles we utilize.
