“An amazing trip to the city past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I have recently visited Stratford-upon-avon and i wanted to know as much as i could about the city and Shakespeare life so I went on this tour. And it exceeded my expectations.
Barbara was our tour guide and she was wonderful. The visit was full of intrigues and curiosities, stuff that i would never knew if i had not done it.
Plus, if you do the trip you have discounts in many places such as Shakespeare houses, butterfly farm and a lot of restaurants and shops.

It is a easy 2 hours walk with plenty of time to take pictures.

Thank you for your lovely review about your guided walk with Stratford Town Walk and Barbara. It is great that Barbara exceeded your expectations, as I am sure you can imagine it is quite a skill to get the balance right. Barbara does this so well and is lovely too. Please come back to Stratford soon, it is a magical place and we look forward to seeing you again. Perhaps you could try our Supper Cruise or Ghost Walk next time.

“Stratford Town Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

My husband and I went on this delightful walk with our guide Barbara and it was just excellent. Barbara was entertaining and had a great deal of knowledge about the city and Shakespeare. I have to say it was the best guided tour I have been on and I have been on lots all over the world. I think it was Barbara's lovely personal touches that made it so wonderful but the content was also very interesting. We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting Stratford. There are two companies offering walks. This is the one that meets by the Swan Fountain.

“Excellent value tour to start your visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

John our guide provided a wide ranging and humorous walk and talk of the town's history with some magic tricks thrown in when sheltering from the British summer showers. The vouchers were an added bonus and we are making use of them tonight for dinner. Gives you a chance to decide what to see and do for the rest of your visit.

Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your walk, despite the challenging weather. It sounds as though the rain also provided you with a little extra entertainment in the form of magic. It's great that you were able to use your vouchers for dinner, and we hope you enjoyed your meal. Hope you come back to Stratford soon - in the sunshine....

“Great introduction - do this first for the vouchers!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Good walk and intro in itself, Barbara was very entertaining and clearly does it because she enjoys it! If you are spending a weekend in Stratford - do this first, you get a book of vouchers, best deal is 2 for 1 or 50% off the Shakespeare Houses saving you either £15 (the three in the town) or £23 (all five) if a couple. There's also a lot of places offering 10% off. Walk was very interesting, 2 hours long, you see pretty much the whole of Stratford, very personal tour.
