When on holiday we always take a tour or walk to familiarise us with a new place. So left it far too long to do so in the Town we have called home for 40 years. 2 hours plus of an enthralling experience for £5 or £6, beat that!. Make it the first thing you do on arrival. As an... More

We enjoyed our 2 hour walking tour. The host was knowledgeable and most friendly. Our group was approx 15 people who were also friendly! Money well spent!

Very cute old town. Lots of adorable shops. This is a tourist town so it can be very busy. You can allow as much or as little time to visit depending on how much walking and shopping you want to do.

Very reasonably priced town walk and Jan our guide was perfect - enough information to keep you interested but not so much that you became bored! Really added to our understanding of the Shakespeare story and to what we were seeing in buildings around the town. She managed the group subtly (about 18 of us) not an easy task as... More

A very knowledgeable insight of Shakespeare's life and family. Worth the £6 fee, it takes two hours and covers everything you need to know, just head to the river at around 10.45 and you will see the queue forming by the water feature.

Wonderfully knowledgeable & easy to listen to guide Barbara entertained us with stories of fact regarding William Shakespeare, his family & his surrounds. Set in beautiful Stratford Upon Avon at an easy walking pace & taking around 2 hours.

We had a blast! We knew very little about Stratford, and we were amazed at how big the town was, so this tour was just thing thing to tell us the history. Joyce was our guide and she was a hoot! She knew so much about the town and the history of Shakespeare. I loved all her stories and quirky... More

We had yesterday, 22nd July 2016 a town tour with Ms Joyce, ex councilor for over two hours in a most interesting enjoyable informative tour. I was with my family and two children who were the right thermometer of a fun or boring time. However, I find this review a bit tooo long for filling that defeats its purpose. I... More

I live very locally to the Stratford-upon-Avon and I still had a lovely time and learnt lots of things about Shakespeare and the local area. I actually have been on several of the tours because of research for a dissertation, and I can say that the individual tour guides are very friendly and welcoming for everyone that they show around....
