I live 5 miles from Stratford and work in the town every day. We had some friends to stay and decided to take them on the walk. We all were fascinated and we learnt loads about our home town. Would highly recommend.

I booked the ghost walk for my sales team and we had a really enjoyable hour and half wandering round Stratford and it's haunted buildings listening and "taking part" in the ghost stories told brilliantly by our guide Vincent. I would certainly recommend

We had a great tour of the city with Barbara. In addition to all the sites involving William Shakespeare, she shared many other interesting facts about Stratford Upon Avon. Well worth it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our town walk with Barbara our guide. She is passionate and knowledgeable about Stratford upon Avon, hence made the tour interesting and humorous with her anecdotes. Can't recommend tour highly enough, thank you Barbara, on this cold damp day.

This is definitely a must do. We met Barbara near the fountain at 11am. The walk took approximately two hours but we did not rush around. It was a very leisurely stroll to see all the attractions (Shakespeare's birthplace, grave, school, theatres etc). Barbara was...More
