My husband and I got a really great tour of Stratford from Jackie -- an enthusiastic and talented guide. Her descriptions made life in Stratford during Shakespeare's day come alive. I especially enjoyed her explanations of word origins. Jackie offered lots of suggestions about places to eat and other fun activities. This tour was a great way to start our... More

Stratford was really enjoyable when we went last Saturday to see a play at the RSC ("The Roaring Girl" which was great fun - excellent as usual). The small town was very neat and well kept, with an excellent range of restaurants and bars, shops, parks by the river and canal. The market was particularly good with a wide choice... More

Firstly, David our host was absolutely brilliant and i cant imagine anyone doing a better job on any tour let alone this one. his knowledge was vast and his manner was very friendly and professional. All the spots on the tour are interesting and very picturesque. 6 Pounds for this tour is a steal! i cant recommended it highly enough!

I always try to go on a walking tour when I visit somewhere new. I went on the Town walk with Barbara as our guide. Really enjoyed it . it was a large group but everyone was included. Barbara obviously knew her stuff but also slipped in her own fave bits of information. We got to see and hear about... More

We love to do the walks in England and once again were not disappointed. Our guide David gave us a lively, informative tour of Stratford-upon-Avon, complete with intriguing tidbits (watch for the bottle containing an suspicious looking liquid) and animated recitals. Loved it, one of the best we have experienced.

Great tour and guide. Got a 2 for 1 with the railway deal so was good value too. Takes you past all the main attractions in the town so I feel is the best way to experience the town.

We first went to Shakespere's home. It was a lot larger home then what we expected for that time in history. Rooms were bigger then expected for that era. The surrounding gardens were gorgeous. Lots and lots of flowers and the whole place hose and garden were really kept up. There is a walkway as your coming in with the... More
