PlanetAs advocates for sustainable tourism, we're constantly expanding our selection of public transport vacations for environmentally conscious travellers. We make it easy for guests to reach even the most secluded areas without relying on cars. By promoting greener modes of transportation, our aim is to minimize the carbon footprint of our tours, which is why we prioritise train travel for the majority of our itinerary.
This thoughtfully-crafted guided tour takes you on a memorable journey through the charming towns and picturesque landscapes of southern England. Starting from the historic city of Bath, you'll embark on a scenic rail journey through Somerset and Devon, eventually arriving at the stunning coastal destination of Cornwall.
During this tour, we'll treat you to delicious meals at locally-owned hotel restaurants that strive to serve authentic, regional cuisine. Your knowledgeable local guide will lead you to discover the area's best-kept secrets while promoting sustainable travel practices, including group walking tours in St Ives and group coaches in Somerset and Cornwall.

PeopleFor us, true sustainability means promoting and helping to maintain a way of life, where the economic benefit from tourism can make a genuine difference. That’s why we work almost exclusively with local, family-run businesses, not with large corporate organisations. We build close and lasting relationships with our business partners, based on mutual trust and an unerring commitment to customer satisfaction. We carefully select these partners to ensure that they share our values of sustainable and responsible travel.
One of our featured hotels in St Ives takes pride in sourcing its fish from local fishing boats that can be seen from the hotel restaurant, ensuring that guests enjoy the freshest catch.
During this holiday, you'll have the chance to visit historic sites managed by the National Trust, such as St. Michael's Mount. As an organization, the National Trust is dedicated to the preservation of historical landmarks, striving to protect them for future generations.
At our company, we're discerning when it comes to selecting business partners, as we prioritise those who align with our principles of sustainable and responsible travel.
