    Totally engaging and fascinating- thank you Lillian!
    Just brilliant. Lillian was utterly engaging throughout. Immense depth of knowledge- fielded all our ad hoc questions with ease. Truly passionate about the history and community of the area. The tour was fascinating. I highly highly recommend this tour and Lillian’s expertise and general enthusiasm if you’re in the Winchester area.

    Winchester Tour
    A super tour around Winchester with Lilian who was very knowledgeable. Even though I have been to a Winchester lots of times it was nice to see and hear more of its rich history.

    A History Lesson
    The guide was so sweet, knowledgeable and passionate about history. My husband has some limited mobility and she adapted the tour to the two of us very well, allowing for sitting when needed etc. We saw the while beautiful city and really loved it!

    Superb private tour - you will learn a lot!
    Lilian was a mine of expert information and my son and I learned such lot in a short time. She was even enthusiastic when it rained throughout most of the tour! Highly recommended. Thank you 😊

    Lillian is a wonderful guide full of information and facts
    Lillian is the perfect guide - my husband has difficulty walking long distances and she helped to tailor an already great tour to make it doable and enjoyable for him. She knew places along the way he could sit and rest and there were times i went with her to see a particular detailed ruin by ourselves. It worked out very well. As others have said she is so knowledgeable that we could have talked for hours about the history of the area and it was a wonderful day. She also recommended we go to evensong at the Cathedral which was wonderful. I highly recommend her. Thank you Lillian for a wonderful day in Winchester.

    Perfect
    Everything was perfect. Our tour guide was kind, knowledgeable, and caring. It wasn’t a scripted tour, she listened to what was important to my family and tailored it to what interested us. I would have paid for a full day if the opportunity was available and if I knew Winchester was so large we would have stayed the night rather than making it a day trip from London. We will definitely be back!

    Great tour of Winchester
    Winchester is much more than the cathedral, and this was a wonderful tour that really made our short trip to Winchester worthwhile. We really appreciated our guide's deep knowledge and engaging storytelling. I'm glad we went to the cathedral before our tour.

    Expert knowledge and good company
    We loved all of it. Our tour guide Lilian brought history to life with her fascinating tales of Winchester’s past. Chatty and friendly, she made it a real treat and the two hours flew past, leaving us hungry for more. We’d definitely do it again.

    Highly recommend this tour
    Excellent tour. Lillian was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour so interesting, taking us to places that a tourist might easily bypass, pointing out things we could have missed without her expertise. Entry to the Great Hall was included. Would highly recommend this tour.

Put on your walking shoes and get ready for a trip back in history throughout Southampton. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate with her content. She shared folklore along with historical events. This was the perfect day after disembarking from our cruise. I highly recommend spending a day with Lillian in Southampton.

You were advised beforehand and it was clearly written in the terms and conditions that all our tours go ahead if the weather isn't dangerous which it wasn't. You were also given the chance to cancel the tour which you didn't do. This was reminded several times before and during the tour. Hardly fair to blame us for the weather when we still delivered the tour for you with all reassurance
