What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning! An excellent walking tour with the lovely Barbara, a superb guide. She was informative and entertaining. A great introduction to Stratford Upon Avon. This tour is good value and lots of discount vouchers too! Many thanks.

Customer service via telephone was very good, no complaints there. However, the tour guide himself seemed rude, condescending and patronising before the walk had even begun. Definitely wouldn't recommend however, customer service was the only positive point.

During my time in the UK, I took a total of five different walks/tours. This was the BEST tour I took. I learned so much and was encouraged to ask questions and participate in the tour. Barbara was fantastic. She was endearing, sharing stories about her likes of her own town. Her love for Straford upon Avon is obvious in... More

Marilyn and I went on the tour Tuesday 21 October led by Barbara. It was a very interesting two hours, done with knowledge and humour which made for an enjoyable tour. I can recommend the tour to anyone visiting Stratford-upon-Avon, which is a beautiful and charismatic town.

We had an entertaining and informative walk with John, our guide. It was peppered with Shakespeare-isms and loads of drama amidst the facts of his life. John also had a lot of facts to share about other aspects of Stratford that I found interesting.

Loved the ghost walk round Stratford town. Vincent was very entertaining up to the point he made us sing! Loved the stories and even though we had a big group Vincent handled it all very well. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the Stratford area.

We enjoyed this excellent walking tour with Barbara, a friendly and informative guide who clearly is very proud and enthusiastic about her home town. The tour took just over 2 hours and we enjoyed every minute. Great value for money and we received discount vouchers for various attractions. We would definitely recommend this tour.

We had a great walk in Stratford with our lovely guide Barbara. She introduced us into all the secrets of Stratford and Shakespeare with stunning stories, insights and aphorisms. It was a great introduction into Stratford!
