I wish there was an option between average and very good. This tour is above average for sure and would not deserve 3 stars only. This is a well oiled machine. We joined the 11am tour on Saturday (26th) and there were a lot of people in our group but John our guide is clearly a skilled your guide and... More

Really enjoyed this walk. Our guide, David, really knew his stuff and we were treated to a Shakespeare Sonnet - fabulous.

Packed full to the rafters with people. We ditched the walk and went our own way. I know we missed out on a whole mess of information, but I couldn't stand the crush of people/students.

My daughter and I enjoyed this tour very much. It was very modestly priced for over two hours of information and wandering from one significant site to another. We learned a lot about Shakespeare and much more.

The walk itself is a must to introduce Stratford provided you can cope with the walking around for two hours. The guide was knowledgable and entertaining, and we could all hear her talks even though we were quite a large group of more than 25. Since our walk we have been able to use the excellent vouchers that come with... More

Our guide was Barbara. She gave us lots of information about Stratford and Shakespeare. I think she is very passionate about her home town. She wlwas very funny and she gave us a long list with discounts, for example the Shakespeare 2 for 1 ticket. So we got a 16 pounds reduction by paying only 5 pounds for the walking... More

Well worth doing. The guide made it interesting and funny. We went at a reasonable pace which appeared to suit all of the group. I've been to Stratford before and missed lots of interesting things that the guide told us about. He even introduced us to an actor from the RSC that we bumped into on the street. The guide... More

Our tour was just brilliant! Thank you so much to our guide, who had a deep knowledge of local history and entertained us with the origins behind everyday phrases, many of which were derived from Shakespeare's plays. She even gave us a sheet of fascinating facts to take away with us. A memorable, fun morning (21/22 April).
