Red Coat Guided tours win international recognition with award Exeter Red Coat Guided Tours

Exeter’s famous Red Coats have won a Travellers’ Choice Award from TripAdvisor.

The Red Coat Guided Tours have once again proved popular with travellers and have been given further recognition with the 2024 award.

Travellers’ Choice winners are determined based on the quality and quantity of traveller reviews and ratings posted on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period.

The free service is provided by the City Council and enables visitors to enjoy Exeter’s rich history with guided tours of the city.

Guided walking tours operate daily, covering a wide variety of subjects that chart the history of the great city of Exeter. Knowledgeable Red Coat guides bring history to life with their tours.

People can choose from a variety of tours, including Exeter Old & New, Medieval Exeter, Ghosts & Legends, and Exeter’s Historic Quayside. There’s also Tudor Exeter, Exeter’s City Wall, Forgotten Exeter, Royalty in Exeter, and many more.

Most tours last 90 minutes and set off from the Hooker statue on the Cathedral Green unless otherwise stated.

There’s no need to book in advance; just turn up on the day. Tours will only operate with a minimum of two people. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and only assistance dogs are permitted on tours.
