Really worthwhile booking this walking tour. Its an easy paced walk with lots of interesting information told in a friendly way. Gives a great overview of the importance of Winchester through the ages and the famous people from history. We really enjoyed it. Bryan , our guide, was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. I'd highly recommend this tour . We're very pleased we booked it.

It was like a private tour. We were the only two people on Bryan’s tour. He did an exceptional job. He is very experienced leading tours and very knowledgeable about the history of Winchester (and Britain). We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience Winchester through the eyes of a local expert

Bryan, the guide, told us many details, very funny. The walk is very pleasant and you can see the whole city. It does not include the entrance to any place, everything is seen from the outside.

Bryan our guide was very knowledgeable about Winchester and took us on a lovely, well paced walk around the city. Thoroughly recommend this guided walk

Very knowledgeable, friendly guide. Gave so much information we could do with crib sheet to remember! He really shouldn’t sing though
