Declan was a true delight and a wonderful find. We were essentially on a private tour as the other persons did not show up, Lucky us! Although he doesn't take us to the Globe Theater on the other side of the Thames; Declan takes us on a fascinating walking tour of unknown gems

Declan, our guide, was excellent. We had a terrific time following him around little alleys and small corners of the City as he showed us monuments and places connected to Shakespeare while answering to all the questions we had. It was a highly informative tour and we found out

Declan was a knowledgable and entertaining guide. His tour visited a number of historical sites, and each stop was accompanied by little-known facts and great stories. If you have any interest in Shakespeare and the world he lived in, I highly recommend his tour.

Today was a great day! I saw so many hidden-away pockets within the Blackfriars area where I now know Shakespeare spent much of his time living and writing (near the Globe Theatre). These little treasures I would have never discovered on my own. Declan, literally an expert on

Thanks Sydney! So glad it was good enough for you to want to secretly record (although in reality I don't allow recording of the Tour, in the same way that people aren't allowed to record plays or films). Don't forget, and this is for other people reading this too, that once you have done my 'Shakespeare in the City Walk' just come to me direct (in other words don't book it online) and you can come on my OTHER tour, 'The Blood and Tears walk' for £5 cash only. I reward loyalty....
