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

I booked a Wartime Worcester tour with Paul for today, to help me with my master's dissertation. He arrived early, and was really easy to get on with. The tour was fantastic. Paul is incredibly knowledgable, and was easy to listen to. He could answer any question I had, and took the time to make sure I had full understanding... More

Paul Harding's 'Tour of Worcester' was areal insight into this marvellous City of Worcester. This was my first time there and I simply could not have chosen a better way to understand and interact and appreciate this city than with Discover History. I know that Paul cannot respond to this. Yet I would like to assure him of my sincere... More

My partner booked The Secrets of the Old Town Tour for his parents and me. We met Paul and Helen outside The Guildhall on a Saturday afternoon. We soon found out that Paul was an extremely knowledgeable guide about Worcester and also very passionate about history in general. Paul had an excellent way of imparting his knowledge with humour and... More
