    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.

  • 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.
  • Excellent tour for a great price.
  • First thing you should do in this beautiful city! The walk is great and super enjoyable. Must do
  • Spent last Monday evening in the company of Vincent "The Ghost" with two daughters 13 & 15. Very informative, charming man. Made us want to delve into the stories more. Well worth 1 1/2 hrs walk on a pleasant evening.
