An excellent way to spend 90 minutes. I came away with lots of new knowledge about Gloucester in particular and history in general all delivered in a professional but not too serious style. Thanks Christine

Was easy to book and quick response regarding availability. Was friendly, interesting and very well presented with lots of stops at hidden history we would have missed if wandering round on our own. Definitely recommended,.

Christine is an expert on all things Gloucester and showed us aspects of the town we would certainly have missed on our own. She kept our family of four including two teenage girls fully engaged throughout this very informative and absorbing tour. Do make time for Christine’s walk if you find yourself in Gloucester

Great tour around the hidden historical aspects of Gloucester- and my god! They are hidden. Love the fact we were going to unexpected places like shoe shops and furniture shops to see some absolutely jaw dropping historical architecture and interiors. Book this - you won’t be disappointed - and we’ll worth the money too. Thanks Christine!
