“Great Team Evening Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Great team evening out! A few members had never been to Chester before and Ed provided a fun and informative tour. I particularly enjoyed 300 years in one row and the pub stops :-) Ed is a great tour guide and tailored the tour to the time we had available, making sure we saw and heard about the key parts of Chester's colourful history.

“Chester Civil War Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I've visited Chester many times but when you take part in a tour like this you realise that most of the time you wander around not really taking in your surroundings. Ed makes sure that you don't miss anything. He is hugely enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history of his city and will get you looking at Chester in a way you haven't done before. Always dressing the part, his Civil War pub tour is much to be recommended as is his tour of the site of Chester's Civil War battle at Rowton Moor. He will certainly leave you in no doubt that there is more to Chester than its Roman heritage.

“Chester Civil War Tour - 23/11/13”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Chester Sea Cadets (adults only) enjoyed a fantastic pub crawl with a difference - the Chester Civil War Pub Tour/Crawl. Who would have thought history on a Saturday night could have been so interesting & enjoyable. Chester, brought to life, in the expert, knowledgeable and friendly hands of Ed & Viv. We all had a thoroughly fantastic time. Would advise everyone to take the opportunity to try it.

“Informative, Great Fun and Tremendous Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

With a colleague, I went on the Rowton Moor visit and the Civil War city tour, and they were really very good. Wholeheartedly recommended - the guides are personable and passionate about their subject - if you are a student of the English Civil War you will learn a lot, and if you are new to the period then there is no finer way to fire up your interest than touring with enthusiasts. We weren't able to do the pub tour, but hope to do so in the future. Thanks, Ed and Viv!
