My husband and I visited Salisbury for the day and having looked on line before decided to do the walking tour. We arrived at the information centre and bought our ticket (excellent value at £12) and then met with our tour guide (Sue) along with 3 other people who were taking part in the tour. Sue was outstanding. Very informative,... More

I was very impressed with our guide, Margaret, who was extremely knowledgeable about the old city. We were able to enter various buildings along the way, including the Guildhall, which has a very attractive courtroom modeled on the Old Bailey. Our tour lasted well over two hours, and I came away feeling that I had a deeper understanding of Salisbury... More

Nice friendly guide BUT she was soo. ... slow and sometimes forgot her story. Such a great city for a potentially interesting tour but she wad such a boring tour guide-who just couldn't keep people engaged. We did not think this tour was value for money and 2 hours was just tooo long. No wonder one man disappeared/escaped before the... More

I can thoroughly recommend this guided city walk. We have been to Salisbury a number of times, but learned so much that was totally new to us. Thank you, Chiara.

We had a guided tour around Salisbury for the modest cost of £8 and worth every penny. You meet and start at tourist office and finish at the Cathedral and are shown the sites and history of this amazing city spanning hundred of years.

This tour leaves daily at 11 from the visitor center and was well worth it. There were under 10 in our group and the guide was knowledgeable and pleasant.

The day before we asked at the tourist office if we needed to book. "No' just turn up at 11am" was the response. As it turned out there had been a large on line booking. They should have had a record of this, it took over half the places. The tour guide is only insured for 25 people and there... More

An absolutely superb two hour stroll where our personable, knowledgeable lady guide took us into shops which hid their secret architecture, the church with its Thomas Beckett link and the various lanes. Well worth £6 ... Get to tourist info. for an 11 start
