Ever wanted to visit the enchanting place they call Cornwall? Situated on the southwestern tip of England, Cornwall is a land steeped in history and myth, boasting beautiful beaches and pristine port towns, ancient castles and modern art. The legendary King Arthur fought passionately for this rugged far-flung land. Daphne du Maurier set her haunting, romantic novels against this brooding backdrop. More recently the British TV series Doc Martin showcases Cornwall’s scenic attractions and quirky customs. From smugglers to surfers, from pirates to “pasties”—Cornwall casts a spell on every visitor, with its unique charms and unspoiled beauty. A few days in this gorgeous region will take you back in time. Each village you explore, with its ancient cobbled streets and quaint Cornish drinking establishments (otherwise known as the great British Pub!), will offer a sense of living history. In Cornwall, the old also meets the new, with iconic attractions such as the Tate Museum at St Ives and the world-renowned Eden Project. With Dacey’s Tours, you can mix manmade marvels with nature walks, according to your own agenda.
Dacey’s Cornish Tours offers you an escorted tour of the best of Cornwall, inclusive of hotels and round trip transportation from London. ( See Itinerary.) Hotels: The hotels that we use have been handpicked not only for their quality but also their Cornish flavor. (All hotels used on the tour have been thoroughly vetted by tour company owner, David “Dacey” Warner, and are a minimum of 3*.) Transportation: The owner of Dacey’s Cornish Tours, Dacey himself, will be with you on the tour (see about Dacey). Dacey’s Cornish Tours has partnered with quality local transport company Bio Transport who offer comfortable coaches and knowledgeable local drivers.
Dacey’s Cornish Tours is a little bit different from what you might expect: the agenda is yours, not ours. While we offer group transport and an organized itinerary, we also offer flexibility and the opportunity to customize your trip. Dacey’s Cornish Tours is a unique hybrid travel experience that involves group transportation but never feels like a package tour. We are not about a “one size fits all” formula. Instead, we’re hands-on when it comes to the logistics of travel but we’re hands-off when you need us to be, allowing each traveler an authentic, personal connection with the place they’ve come to see. The adventure is yours. We’re just here to make sure nothing gets in the way.
In his capacity as tour escort, Dacey draws on his diverse professional management career, his years spent travelling the world, and his love of people. His goal is to facilitate a carefully curated, fuss-free, and truly immersive experience for visitors looking to explore Cornwall. As itinerary coordinator, transport planner, and concierge, Dacey tailors each trip to suit each individual traveler. He is available to make dinner reservations; arrange outdoor activities and excursions; and book theater and museum tickets. Dacey manages the details but recedes into the background when you’re off the bus, to enable a sense of freedom, independence, and spontaneity in your Cornish adventure.
