Our guide John was very informative and funny. The two hour walk went by in a flash and we learnt that there is so much more to the town other than just being Shakespeare's home town. I would recommend this tour for sure. The discount offers provided for other town businesses are great and it's obvious that John loves the... More

We had a lovely time on the walk on Saturday 18th Feb and our guide was Joyce. She was a fantastic guide who shared her wealth of information on the local area and Shakespeare. The pace of the walk was just right and Joyce interacted and engaged the group with her enthusiasm and sense of humour. Pleased to say that... More

Went on a family walk with the knowledgeable guide. When in various places I like to do walking tours as you get to see various places you probably wouldn't find as a tourist. This trip was good and the guide a font of all knowledge about Stratford. Enjoyed it but still my favourite is the York walking tour!

Our guide was Joyce; she was absolutely brilliant!!! She covered all the major sights without overlapping really with the houses' tours. Your tickets also includes some valuable discounts that we used straight after the tour. Please note that the church asks £2pp (kids free) to enter the chapel where Shakespeare was buried.

On Valentines Day we met Wendy at the Swan Sculpture for a guided tour that was a bit longer than 2 hours. That was due to all her attentive patrons asking questions! Her expertise and interesting facts about Stratford Upon Avon to Stratford ON Avon and all in between made our time go by too fast. Though we self guided... More

Very nice tour of the town and impressive that do it every day of the year! Tour guides were lovely and chatty. I enjoyed the walk but would have liked a bit more background on how Stratford was before Shakespeare made his mark. You get vouchers for various places independent shops around Stratford which is a lovely way to encourage... More

Our walk guide was Margot…. who knows the town and the Bard well. It was a lovely cold Sunday morning in February and the two hour tour was really excellent and very informative. We visited the church and we was fascinated and shown how Shakespeare “fitted” into Psalm 64. This is a great way of seeing and learning about a... More

A great 90 minute walk through town past many of the important buildings concerning William Shakespeare and his family. John was able to summarize the life and times of the bard as well as the origins and history of Stratford in an entertaining and educational manner. Absolutely worth doing, as you get an understanding about the town and Shakespeare which... More

The walk was in the main very good but I felt we were at each place of interest quite... More
