  • A superb way to find about the history of the town and its most famous son! Learned more in the two and a quarter hour gentle walk through the town with our guide John, about the "other side of Shakes...  more »
  • More than visiting the Interior modernised of more or less famous houses, what really deserves is walking around the town: clean, organized, which flourished, the houses are stupendously beautiful features, outdoor bar, if it is sunny now, even better! Beautiful really. The cost of tickets to visit the places real or imagined by Shakespeare, are exaggerated, in my opinion.

  • Lovely atmosphere and great story telling. Great price too! Had a lovely hot chocolate at the end of the walk and also got to hold. Beautiful barn owl 😊 well worth the visit!
  • I like to do walking tours wherever I travel, so I've done quite a few! This was a great example of the right walking tour - the right amount of interesting history, an easy pace for the group, a fantastic price (too cheap I think!), and an absolutely lovely tour guide. Can't recommend highly enough!
  • Third time I do this tour. +2h full of stories, laughter and knowledge. Best attraction of SUA.
  • Ok in general, but a lot of useless information, more focus could be made on Shakespeare life and works.
  • Informative, great guides
