I would definitely recommend this tour for tourists, first time visitors and even locals who already know much of what Stratford has to offer. I can guarantee that after this walk you will learn something new or discover something that you had not previously appreciated. Not being someone who is particularly keen on guided tours, I was extremely surprised by... More

Our guide Jan gave us a great tour of the centre with plenty of history along the way. It helped us understand Stratford and identify places we might like to spend more time visiting, and those we may not. Helps you to orientate yourselves to a town with so much to see. Try it and you will not be disappointed

A very knowledgeable guide wth a lovely friendly approach and a fund of stories and anecdotes about the town and its link to Shakespeare. The ideal start to our stay - it helped us orientate ourselves, identify the places we wanted to visit and the restaurants we wanted to try.

Tour guide Margot was first class! She was the best we have ever had during a tour. She was all one could wish for in tour guide, witty, funny, informative, bright and knew so much about William Shakespeare and Stratford Upon Avon. We could have easily spend a whole day with her. She was definitely our kind of lady and... More

John, our guide was very good and did his best to entertain our small group on a very cold, wet New Year's Day. He was full of interesting anecdotes and if the weather hadn't been so miserable it would have been an excellent 2 hours.
