This is the best way to arrive at Greenways from Dartmouth. The ferry leaves at regular intervals and takes about 30 mins to reach the house. On the return journey we saw a seal resting on a pontoon. Thank you

Staff seem extremely rude and unhelpful. Don't try to offer any help of any sort and should train their staff better on how to be polite when serving paying customers. Need a better company to provide a ferry to greenway.More

We spent a very pleasant hour aboard the paddle steamer. Tour was informative and captain knowledgeable and funny at the same time. Well worth doing would recommend.

It was a great way to see more of Dartmouth. It was very wet as in the middle, the heavens opened but lucky had a cover. No commentary which was a big shame

Did the round robin from Dartmouth. Ferry, bus, rail and ferry back to Dartmouth. Agree with people that Paignton is a place to avoid. Commentary on first ferry was funny and informative. Steam rail was very good. All worked out well and would recommend.
