Dear Asparaguspea, Thank you so much for your very kind review. I'm delighted that your husband enjoyed coming on a "Bude Geo-Walk". Best wishes to you both from "Roger Rocks"!

This walk is simply fascinating. The imparting of information is not simply about the geology of the area, but Roger also covers a bit of local history (the canal, the lock, etc). Bude is fascinating. This short walk and Roger's in-depth knowledge of the area...More

Dr. Higgs does a very good job of informing his guests of the geological history of the area. It's edifying and paced for the audience. Not only is Dr. Higgs an excellent resource, but also a fine psychologist, who notices people's reactions right away, and...More

We absolutely loved our outing with Roger, full of fascinating information - adored by our 6 year old budding scientist / geologist (but perhaps an engineer in his spare time!!) I would thoroughly recommend booking a trip with Roger to learn more about the local...More

The guided tour is obviously more than interesting - that's why it was meant to be a Christmas present for my husband when spending our holidays in Cornwall. As advertised online and in the Bude-TIC-shopwindow, we arrived on time (that is 1:30 pm on a...More

If you think that geology is boring or 'not for you', think again! In this Geo-Tour Dr. Roger Higgs brings to life a 300 million year old mystery in an exciting and interesting way. Locals and visitors alike will never look at Bude's cliffs and...More
