Our guide John was very informative and very knowledgable. He had a great sense of humour too. This should be the first thing you do in Stratford to get your bearings and familiarise yourself with the layout and its history. You get discount vouchers to use in about 30 establishments and 2 for 1 up the RSC tower as at... More

On a cold winter morning we joined this Town walk and the two hours flew past as our guide Barbara, showed us highlights of her lovely home-town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Not only did Barbara entertain and educate us, but she found places to take us indoors for a warm-up at strategic points in the tour and took the time to find... More

Our tour guide David gave a very interesting and informative talk which we thoroughly enjoyed. It cost £6 and lasted a good two hours. Would definitely recommend.

We joined the town walk this weekend and spent a very interesting couple of hours. Our guide John, was both erudite and humorous giving his walkers a great deal of knowledge and lots of quirky facts. Well worth the £5 charged (Senior rate- otherwise £6) Thank you John for a great couple of hours . Highly recommended.

We had a great evenings entertainment with Vincent. The walk started as the evening was to continue, Vicent captivated the young and the old during the walk, he enthralled us all with his ghost stories and the mist rolling in off the Avon really made it atmospheric and added to the evening. It's the second time we've been on this... More

We had a most enjoyable evening with Vincent as our host for the Stratford Ghost Walk. It was a dark, misty, dank evening when we met at The Swan fountain on Waterside. From the start Vincent captivated us with his storytelling as we walked round Old Town listening to his tales of witchcraft and hauntings in the various buildings and... More

Had Barbara as a guide and she was great! Very informative and friendly! She knew lots about the city and even told us a great place to have a coffee or tea, and what we should visit afterwards.

My OH and I completed the walking tour today and had a thoroughly brilliant time! Barbara (the tour guide) is perhaps one of the nicest ladies you could ever meet and no matter what questions were thrown at her, she always knew the answers in detail! Apart from learning a great deal about the town, buildings and history, Barbara kept... More
