Our tour guide James was really good. He walked us through the city and told us many tales about the city, it's historical significance and key sites. It's one of the best walking tour we have had in entire Europe. James gave great advice for the restaurant to try in Plymouth.
Walk tour was highlight of our trip.
I will highly recommend anyone who wish to see the city with a new perspective to take the walking tour and learn about Plymouth.

Nigel, our guide gave us a fantastic tour of historic Plymouth. We were the only 2 adults booked in, and he went above and beyond to give us a great experience which lasted nearly 3 hours. His knowledge of the city and its history was extensive and we learned so much! Very good value for money.

I had heard of the tour from searches before we came, but hadn’t booked 😱. When we knew we had a free morning, I booked the tour in the evening before, so was surprised that it was confirmed quickly, with payment taken smoothly.
The next morning the guide arrived on time & we were delighted to find we were the only participants !
The guide was enormously knowledgable & he tailored the tour to our interests, covering all aspects of the city’s history & current ‘challenges’.

For the price we couldn’t have asked for more & would recommend to groups of any size or age.
