My wife and I booked Michael for a Doc Martin tour in Port Isaac, and he was, in a word, brilliant. Friendly, funny, deep knowledge of the cast and crew with lots of great stories. 5 stars, no critiques, BRAVO.

We visited here following the Doc Martin series. It’s an amazing place and easily recognisable locations. It is on a steep slope but there is a gentle coastal path.

We found the village could have been charming but has been taken over by the tourist industry and spoiled completely. The car park is extortionately expensive and at the top of a very steep hill. The roads in the village are narrow and winding with...More

This was a great way to see and appreciate the history of Port Isaac combined with the growth of the Doc Martin series. Michael Meakin, our guide, is a supporting artist on Doc Martin and he talks lovingly of the positive effect the production has...More

Hello, this tour is not wheel chair friendly. Many narrow path ways and steep steps in one area. Maybe you could tag along the parts that don't go into the old section of the village?
