Our guide John was brilliant at bringing the town to life and sharing his knowledge with us. This 2 hour walking tour is well worth the money - and you get vouchers to use elsewhere in the town. You get the chance to view Shakespeare's grave on this tour at a reduced price.

Our guide David took us on a fun and informal tour around Stratford, his enthusiasm and passion for his home town and Shakespere were obvious making the tour really enjoyable! If like us you only have a few hours in Stratford this is a great way to see the town and all the major tourist spots.

Very informative walking tour - our friendly guide Margot was full of interesting facts, giving many historical and humorous anecdotes as we toured the town. It was an enjoyable tour, despite the cold and rain! The town's historical past was pointed out, as well as (usefully) where various eateries and attractions were.

Our guide David G made this into one of the highlights of our visit to the UK. His professionalism shone through with his enthusiasm and personal contact with each guest showing how it should be done. This was no ordinary history walk & talk but nearly a show in itself as, with great knowledge and insight David was able to... More

We really enjoyed an informative walk around Stratford-Upon-Avon. A large group assembled at the Swan Fountain and Helen and John swiftly divided us into two groups. Helen expertly steered us around other tour groups to give us the best opportunity to view the historic buildings. She told stories and pointed out places worth re-visiting as we walked. We were given... More

This 2 hour walking tour was both interesting and fun. DAVID GUNNELL was our guide and we found him very well informed and had a great sense of humour. His stories and anecdotes made Stratford come alive. His mastery of poetry could have led us to believe he was from the RSC! Scott and Toni from Reading

Thoroughly enjoyed our entertaining and informative Saturday morning 2-hour town tour led by our guide, David. Learnt and saw so much more about Stratford than if we'd just guided ourselves and all done in the company of an affable group and an extremely effective guide. Well worth the £6pp fee. Full marks!

We decided to do the ghost walk for valentine for something different. Vincent was our tour guide. He was very good. Entertaining. I was nervous that it would be far too scary for me, but it was brilliant. I would recommend this to everyone.
