No matter how much you think you know, I have found that just about always, you are exposed to so much more on guided tours. Our guide, Cathy, lead our group of about 7 on an hour & a half tour around Salisbury which was both enjoyable & knowledgable. For 5 pounds it was well worth it! KatB, NC, USA

There is not much you can get for a fiver these days so I have no hesitation in recommending the Salisbury City Tour. The tour takes 90 minutes and you get to cover a fair bit of the city, its flat going most of the way so its easy going for young and old. This was our last bit of... More

We had nearly two hours with Kathy Quinn, on our stroll round part of the city centre. This is obviously good value, but I felt that some more facts & details about Salisbury would suit this tour. Just a little too much general chit-chat at times for me. A pleasant enough volunteer lady though.

My boyfriend and I took the city walking tour with Kathy Quinn, and even though it was raining it was a great tour. As a Salisbury local and lifelong resident, Kathy has an insight into the city and all of it's little intricacies. Filled with personal anecdotes and jokes, the tour was packed with information that you'd never know just... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Salisbury last weekend, with an interesting, knowledgeable and entertaining Blue Badge Guide. We learnt so much that we would never have known from walking the city on our own, which we have done in the past. Definitely to be recommended.

Last Saturday (7th Mar 15) we visited Salisbury and took an official tour with a guide around the city. Besides the usual information, when it was founded and why; we were also subjected to a talk on architectural fashion, things are not what they seem, the plague, medieval church practices and more. A thoroughly entertaining 90 mins by David (the... More

We just did this city walk with a very knowledgeable man called David. It only costs £5 per person and i am delighted to tell you that it definitely was worth it. Does not matter how many times you visit a place or even live you don't normally notice some of very peculiar and interesting facts that are shown to... More

Had a wonderful 90 minutes in the company of David, a most knowledgeable guide for a walk around Salisbury or New Sarum to give it it's proper title. Learnt all about the history and making of both Old and New Sarum, visited the old Courthouse and St Thomas' Church, before finishing at the Cathedral.

This is run daily from the Tourist information Office. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining as he walked us around the streets, showing us details on buildings and telling us the stories they held.Well worth the £5
