Our tour guide was very knowledgeable & proud of her home town and made the tour interesting and entertaining. Bargain at £5 for an hour and a half. We were asked if there were any particular areas of interest so that the tour can be tailored. Worcester is the ideal size for a walking tour, lots to see in a... More

We had a fascinating tour with Miriam. We booked it through the Tourist information which was very easy. The ladies there were very helpful and organised a tour just for the five of us. The tour took an 1 1/2 and was worth great value for money. Miriam was very knowledgeable and friendly. She took us around all of the... More

We had an amazing tour with Paul. He is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Worcester history and there is a lot of it. He took us to some of the earliest buildings and pointed out some that had been "modernized" but if you looked closely you could see the very old timber frames. We learned about the different periods of... More

We were treated to 'A right Royal Tour' by Paul of Discover History last night. It was such fun and Paul has a superb way of making it exciting and interesting. Paul does many different tours of the city and it is well-worth coming along to take part.

Great value for money at only £5 pp. Thought it would be a bit geeky but was really interesting. Paul was a fantastic tour guide, keeping us moving along with the history facts and tales to keep us entertained. The time flew by.

I had read about these walks on trip Advisor and wanted to go on one but arrived in Worcester at 3 minutes to 5. We managed to get to the Tourist Information who phoned up for us but there was no answer so she left our number. As we were leaving they phoned back to confirm our booking to our... More

We were a group of 6 spanning 3 generations and all enjoyed this tour. The guide Paul was very knowledgeable and we all enjoyed his sense of humour . A great way to see worcester and decide where you would like to visit whilst there.

I saw the reviews on TA and resolved to take this tour. When I looked on their website I saw that the usual start time was 6 pm from the Guildhall. That is not a time I would choose to embark on a 90-120 minute walking tour. I sent them an e-mail explaining that I would love to do the... More

We were lucky enough to catch this tour just as it was starting. Most of it was outside, but it did include the inside of the Guildhall. It was disappointing to see what a previous generation had done to Elgar's old home. it finished at the Cathedral, and was informative and well worth the price of the ticket.

We often go on city walking tours when we're visiting somewhere new and the quality can vary hugely. This one was excellent - our guide was really enthusiastic and keen to share his interest in the city. We had booked ahead and when we arrived it turned out that the only people on the tour was our family (mum, dad... More
