Escorted Tours & Vacations to Cornwall, Great Britain.
Cornwall; a region where enchantment awaits you at every turn. Situated on the southwestern tip of the UK, Cornwall is a land steeped in history and myth, boasting beautiful beaches with pristine towns, ancient castles and fine modern art. Looking back, the legendary King Arthur fought passionately for this rugged far-flung land and it certainly is not difficult to see why. From smugglers to surfers, cream teas to the delicious Cornish pasty; Cornwall casts a spell on every visitor, with its unique charm, unspoiled beauty and the sense of mystery often leaving those that visit feeling as though they have gone back in time. With Dacey’s you can tour cornwall in a unique and relaxed way.
It is no great surprise that Cornwall has been used as a backdrop for both literature and television; from Daphne du Maurier setting her popular romantic novels against the brooding Cornish landscape, to TV drama Doc Martin where Port Isaac helped to create the fictional village of Portwenn. Another extremely popular television drama that recently fell for the mystique of the Cornish region is of course the unmistakable Poldark. Much of the series was filmed in Cornwall, locations including the ever- rugged Bodmin Moor, parts of the dramatic Southern coastline became Poldark’s Nampara Cove, whilst scenes featuring Tressiders Rolling Mill were captured in a breathtaking cliff side mining area of Cornwall. You might be wondering just what it is that keeps authors, producers and directors coming back for more; breathtaking scenery, friendly locals and a touch of magic – if you tour Cornwall in person you will know just what we mean. Every village that you explore, with its ancient cobbled streets and quaint Cornish drinking establishments, will offer a sense of living history right in front of you. Cornwall, is the place where old also meets new, with iconic attractions such as the Tate Museum at St Ives and the world-renowned Eden Project at St. Austell. There is sure to be something for everyone – come and tour cornwall with us, we will take you!

A stress-free adventure: our approach
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.
Escorted vs. guided tour
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 tour 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.
