Tailored walking tours

In addition to our off-the-shelf tours, we can also arrange tailormade walking tours to match your requirements. If you’re a company, a society, club, or a group of friends, why not join us for a tour?

Maybe you’d like a walk which finishes with a wine tasting session, or a picnic at one of the many beaches in The Bay. How about a sunrise or sunset stroll along stunningly beautiful English Riviera? Or for the more adventurous, go for a walk followed by a ride around the coast on a rib!

The walks can be adapted to your preference, either as a one-off event, or something we arrange on a regular basis. To talk through the options, contact: guide@englishrivierawalkingtours.co.uk or call 07414 777 606
