Review for another Sherpa Expeditions tour
“We took a self-guided tour in Cornwall from Marazion to Mevagissey. It was our first experience of the kind and we absolutely loved it. It was very convenient to have all the accommodations, itinerary and luggage transfer arranged for you and, in my view, it was very well worth it. The tour was easy to book, the communications with the tour consultant were very satisfactory and the overall experience was extremely positive and inspiring. It's very likely that we will book some other walking tours with Sherpa Expeditions. For overseas customers like ourselves, I recommend to tack on a day in Penzance before the tour (we went to the Minack Theatre and walked around in Penzance). St Michael's Mount is a must in Marazion (you have to arrive at Marazion early for that). Also a day or two in Fowey after the end of the tour - we went to Lanhydrock House and Gardens from there and Fowey itself is a charming little town with an amazing history.”

Review for another Sherpa Expeditions tour
“We found the trip humbling both of the mind and body. The
surrounding were awe inspiring. Having our luggage moved for us made the hiking manageable. Socialing with the members in our groups was also a added reward. It was the perfect way to celebrate our 40th anniversary.”
