First of all the weather was great. Starting at the Salutation inn the tour guide- who is friendly and has great presence- starts a tour of Nottingham, it is informative, interesting and eye opening. I have been in Nottingham all my life and never really looked at buildings, enquired about past residents or learned the history of anywhere within this... More

Overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our tour guide the wet afternoon was quickly forgotton. David acted out the villains of Nottingham rather than just did the "guide" bit and his energy amidst the English weather did not falter! Thought you knew everything about Nottingham? The Heroes and Villains tour will captivate the tourists and locals a like. Alot of hard... More

Having live in Nottingham all my life I thought it was time to have an insight in to the history of the city. This is a very informative enjoyable tour. You cover the main sites and buildings around Nottingham City Center in 2 hours ending with a walk down in to the caves under The Salutation Inn. All in all... More

Booked this with 2 of our friends for Easter Monday. We have lived in Nottinghamshire all our lives and thought we were pretty clued up of the history of Nottingham. How wrong we were!!! David, our guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgable and this obviously made the tour really interesting and entertaining! The walk and the trip to the caves... More

Many local people who have come on the tours have said that they thought they knew a lot about the City, but that many of the stories were new to them, and that they really enjoyed it. Just emphasises what a fascinating city Nottingham is,... More

My wife booked us onto this as a surprise treat & what a surprise it was. I've lived & worked in Nottingham all my life & thought I knew most of its history quite well. Our guide was obviously very passionate about history & came across as very charismatic & not at all like an out of work actor narrating... More

Many thanks for your comments and glad you had a great time! I am indeed passionate about Nottingham's history, but also about telling it in the most entertaining way. Even after 19 years taking Nottingham tours, it's still a buzz! The tour has been carefully designed to be relaxing and entertaining, but also to pack the maximum of fascinating stories... More

Had a fantastic time on today's tour. All of the stories were really engaging and our terrific guide led us on a real journey of Nottingham's past. Would recommend to all (even if like me history isn't always your thing!) Hoping to do the ghost tour next :)

Great tour, long enough to be a "main event" without being so long that boredom set in. Really good to hear about some less well known Nottingham characters (and parts of the City) as well as Robin Hood! Finishing the tour down in some of the famous Nottingham caves was a highlight for me.
