This tour leaves daily at 11 from the visitor center and was well worth it. There were under 10 in our group and the guide was knowledgeable and pleasant.

The day before we asked at the tourist office if we needed to book. "No' just turn up at 11am" was the response. As it turned out there had been a large on line booking. They should have had a record of this, it took over half the places. The tour guide is only insured for 25 people and there... More

An absolutely superb two hour stroll where our personable, knowledgeable lady guide took us into shops which hid their secret architecture, the church with its Thomas Beckett link and the various lanes. Well worth £6 ... Get to tourist info. for an 11 start

No matter how much you think you know, I have found that just about always, you are exposed to so much more on guided tours. Our guide, Cathy, lead our group of about 7 on an hour & a half tour around Salisbury which was both enjoyable & knowledgable. For 5 pounds it was well worth it! KatB, NC, USA

There is not much you can get for a fiver these days so I have no hesitation in recommending the Salisbury City Tour. The tour takes 90 minutes and you get to cover a fair bit of the city, its flat going most of the way so its easy going for young and old. This was our last bit of... More

We had nearly two hours with Kathy Quinn, on our stroll round part of the city centre. This is obviously good value, but I felt that some more facts & details about Salisbury would suit this tour. Just a little too much general chit-chat at times for me. A pleasant enough volunteer lady though.

My boyfriend and I took the city walking tour with Kathy Quinn, and even though it was raining it was a great tour. As a Salisbury local and lifelong resident, Kathy has an insight into the city and all of it's little intricacies. Filled with personal anecdotes and jokes, the tour was packed with information that you'd never know just... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Salisbury last weekend, with an interesting, knowledgeable and entertaining Blue Badge Guide. We learnt so much that we would never have known from walking the city on our own, which we have done in the past. Definitely to be recommended.
