We went on the tour with an international group of students and everyone had a great time. Although some had never heard of Robin Hood and were quite clueless about English history, the tale came to life, thanks to the charismatic tourguide, who really interacts with his audience. The whole tour was a thrill, not comparable to regular city tours.
I recommend it to anybody.

'The tour was a thrill'! That is just too kind! Nice to hear that the international group, with little knowledge, shared a great time as they enjoyed the City and the legend. The hybrid nature of the tour, the interaction and the spirit which drives it, means that it does stand put from other tours. And I've only just begun... Cheers!

'Ezekial's' depth of historical knowledge is phenomenal, he really knows his stuff and you can tell he has a passion about getting the details correct. But this isn't a dry, yawn-inducing tour! Not many people can combine that knowledge with a fun, charismatic style that keeps you hooked all the way along like Ade can. A true entertainer, with a depth of knowledge - great combination! Thank you!!

No. Thank you! My words, your minds. It has taken years of research to pull it together and it makes it worth-while when intelligent folk like your goodselves soak up the knowledge and enjoy the experience. It's all for a good cause - putting a bit of soul back into the world. Believe in better!

Not your average tour. Your guide is very charismatic and engaging in his way of "telling the tale". While passing another tour we heard a woman exclaim, "we chose the wrong tour!". Highly reccomendable

Simply put, this is one of, if not THE, best tour I've ever taken! I came to Nottingham in search of cheesy Robin Hood tales, but I left as a knowledgeable historian of a figure that has inspired imaginations for centuries (and received the correct dosage of cheesiness!).
Our tour guide, Ade, showed us around Nottingham and was able to perfectly blend history with jokes and little-known facts. His enthusiasm for Robin Hood and Nottingham was evident, and by the end of the tour our group couldn't help but be inspired as well!
I would HIGHLY recommend that any visitors to Nottingham, England, or the UK take this tour; it's well worth every penny (even on a student's budget like mine) and is definitely a must-do. Robin Hood lives!

Thank you my friend! Great in-depth review. Glad you were inspired by the City and its famous son. That is my aim. No cheap shots here to try pull in the punters seeking Robin Hood, just truth and passion. As my word hoard is crafted, even more little known facts and intelligent humour will overflow from this ongoing cultural endeavour. Nottingham rules and Robin Hood lives!

Aye! We definitely believe, as the legend of Robin Hood lives on through Ade... He is as enthusiastic as he is knowledgeable making this tour the highlight of our stay in Nottingham.

Having visited Sherwood Forest and Nottingham Castle previously, Ade consolidated and furthered the knowledge we had already acquired. The depth of information was vast and covered various aspects of history to suit everyone, but was by no means overwhelming. It was delivered with a good level of humour and physical references throughout the city making the experience light-hearted and well worthwhile.

Whilst the well researched tour lasts only a couple of hours, it not only covers both the history and evolution of Nottingham and Robin Hood, it also poses the relevance of Robin Hood and his message in the 21st Century.

If there is one thing you have to do in Nottingham, it has to be this tour!

Aye! Aye!! The words will echo around Nottingham town. Thanks for taking the trouble to write an in depth review. It is an art form others can only attempt to copy - cramming in alot of information and intelligent ideas but making it palatable with a healthy garnish of humour and light-heartedness. Glad you picked up on the meassge of Robin Hood for the C21st. Food for thought isn't it?!
