Discover some of the 44 Dartmoor pubs on the Dartmoor Real Ale Trail without the worry of driving, let Tich be your designated driver and tour guide in his luxury 4X4 Land Rover for the day.

Tich has lived, farmed and worked in the area for his whole life, he loves to share his vast wealth of knowledge with you. Not only does he pretty much know every family and pub landlord on the moor (including dog names!) he is an award winning local dialect speaker, so you may well be glad of his company when you meet some of the locals.

Travel around at a leisurely pace enjoying, amongst others, ales locally brewed at The Dartmoor Brewery in Princetown and hear from your guide how it is made. Ghost stories are a big part of Dartmoor, The Hairy Hands, The White Bird of the Oxenhams and Lady Howard to name but a few.

“We went on a tour with Titch for a surprise birthday present yesterday. We all had an amazing time with Tich who showed us parts of the Moor we have never and probably would never of seen although we are all residents of Dartmoor ourselves!!!! Tich was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we had a fantastic day and I cannot wait to go on another one (apparently the "Pub" version is also very good.  :-). I really cannot recommend you rake a tour with him enough.”  Steve Gosnay

“Absolutely amazing!!!! Tich took 4 of us on a tour of a lifetime! I've been to Dartmoor twice before coming over from the U.S. and it's honestly my favourite place on earth. Now more so than ever. One in our party has lived here for 74 years and learned new things. We all thought he was just brilliant and had a great knack to tell history and have a good laugh along the way. Thank you so much Tich! It really was the highlight of our adventure!” Sarah Reed
