A must for Austen fans

Friendly guide showed us much of Lyne that we had not managed to find for ourselves. Great info regarding the visits and novel settings of Jane Austen. Very worthwhile.

I'm American and when I emailed to enquire about a private tour because of my limited time in country, she contacted me back right away and was very accommodating. We met at the appointed time and had a very, very lovely walk around Lyme. She brought pictures and photographs to help supplement the history she taught - we learned not... More

The time of our walk had to be changed, but we were very glad Natalie was able to reschedule as we learnt much of interest about the history of Lyme Regis and Mary Anning. We booked the walk through the Museum, which also includes entry to the museum, a tour of which complimented this walk. Natalie communicated her knowledge of... More

We walked with this guide on two walks (Jane Austen and Mary Anning) in May 2015. One date was moved at short notice and we were coming a long way, but were able to accomodate this. I know these things happen, but the guide arrived on Friday night for the re-arranged tour, dressed to go out and it was clear... More

Natalie's tour was very enjoyable and informative. When she read passages from Jane Austen's 'Persuasion', it made the book come alive. We particularly enjoyed the historical references and how Natalie's research has led to some very interesting conclusions. Thank you, Natalie, for guiding us back in time.

It turned out I was the only one to book this tour. So Natalie gave me and my husband a choice of several venues, and we had a lovely hike to an interesting place mentioned in Persuasion (Pinhay), and a great tour of Jane Austen sites in Lyme with many insights I would not have known on my own. We... More

Natalie provided a well-prepared walking tour throughout Lyme. She knows her Austen as well as other literary figures. Janeites and Austen beginners alike would enjoy the tour. I am convinced that hers is the right argument on which are the steps Louisa Musgrove foolishly jumped from!

The day was fantastic. Natalie was interesting and knowledgeable. All the major locations were covered and we got to see some truly staggering scenery which was a huge plus. The length of the tour was good and Natalie made us feel like we were a group of friends walking with each other. It was so relaxed. My only negative is... More
