David was a most entertaining, very knowledgable, very kind and confident guide. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this guided tour walk and learned a lot about Shakespeare, the various types of archetecture, many historical facts. This is a must do tour for anyone.

This 2-hour walking tour was one of the highlights of our visit to Stratford. Barbara was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and full of great stories and trivia about the town. Two thumbs up - worth every penny!

Vincent our tour guide was full of the banter! This guy was a total gent! The tour lasted about an hour and a half. We met at the Swan fountain and were guided down Street Sheep. We felt like he really understood the meaning of a ghost tour and we know our stuff as this was our 3rd ghost tour!... More

We took part in the Stratford Town Walk yesterday which was Good Friday. David led the walk. He was very knowledgable about Stratford, language and general history. He was courteous and made it great fun for everyone. Definitely would recommend. The vouchers also made it great value for money.

This is well worth the entrance fee...John, our guide, was entertaining and erudite. We visited a range of places and learned not just about the Bard (although there was lots about him) but also about the early days of the town and the context in which Shakespeare was writing. Engaging and witty with a real charm - if the other... More

joined this tour as part of a trip to Stratford for my husband's birthday this weekend. Met by the sign for the walking tour in the pouring rain which could have made this a miserable experience but luckily we were with the most delightful guide, Barbara, who brightened everyone's morning! The rain stopped soon after we started, and thanks to... More

As members of a local Operatic Society, we are used to the 'theatricals', and we are all agreed we enjoyed an absolutely brilliant and fun filled evening, on this Guided Ghost Walk of Stratford-upon-Avon, learning the many tales about and surrounding the Town and its bygone days and characters. This was presented so well by our Guide, VINCENT, he certainly... More

My friend and I had the great fortune of being shown around Stratford by David. His tour was very informative and entertaining at the same time. He is very knowledgable about the area and obviously took great pride in showing people around the town. As others have mentioned, the discounts provided for activities after the tour are fantastic, but the... More
