About The Chester Tour
A guided walking tour of Chester really is the best way to explore the highlights of the 2000 years of history that have shaped the city we enjoy today. All tours are led by fully qualified Blue and Green Badge Guides. The Chester Tour starts at 10.30am every single day of the year, plus there is an additional tour at 2pm from Easter to end October. Tours generally last for around 1.5 hours, so even if you are only in Chester for a short visit, our experienced Guides can help you make the most of your time in this beautiful city. A variety of private sightseeing tours (by foot and/or by coach) can be booked all year round for groups or individual visitors at a time to suit you. Guides need to be booked in advance

We were lucky enough to have a tour around Chester with the wonderful Liz. She was so informative and knowledgeable about Chester's history from Romans to present day and is clearly passionate about what she does. Liz was able to answer all our questions and was able to tailor the tour to our interests. Highly recommend this tour!

My husband and I were the only people on the guided tour today along with Pat our guide. It was a brilliant way to see and hear about the history of Chester. Pat was very nice, informative and enthusiastic. We learnt such a lot about Chester which was very interesting. Great value for money and would definitely recommend visitors to choose this guided walk. Thank you Pat for such an interesting and enjoyable tour.

We took a wonderful and informative walking tour with ‘Liz’-if memory serves. Despite the awful weather she kept us dry and entertained.

We’re so pleased you enjoyed your tour and could see for yourselves how we really can offer our tours all year round, whatever the weather. Our unique, historic Rows offer a wonderful covered walkway throughout the city centre, enabling us to tell the 2000 year story of the city without getting wet! What’s not to like?!

Our visit to Chester started with a walking tour and we’re now thoroughly captivated by the history of the city. Our guide, Liz, was so knowledgable and, as there was just my husband and I on the tour, she answered all of the questions we had. As we have a few days here, it was a great way to plan which parts of the city to explore. We would definitely recommend this tour!

Very good 90 minute walking tour of Chester. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. You can't see all of Chester in 90 minutes but this was a good way to start exploring the city. No booking - just meet at the Tourist Information Centre.
