          A let down
          Apart from the cathedral we found Peterborough a let down with not much to do. The saving grace was that we stayed in the Dragonfly hotel which sat on the Peterborough city rowing lake. It had lovely walks in the evening’s. Staff at the hotel were lovely.

          Airpower Development in World War I
          James took my wife and I on a facinating tour of the WWI aircraft in Hanger 2. He was able to explain how aircraft developed throughout the Great War in an easy to understand way. I particularly liked how he tied the loose ends together and answered all our questions. We enjoyed our tour with James immensely and would unreservedly recommend his tour.

          Nice experience to a well know University town
          Another trip we took not knowing exactly what to expect. We knew the city was famous for 'the' University but actually there are about 39 colleges here all technically under the umbrella of Oxford University. The 'university' layout was not as I thought based on a map of the city. The buildings are very old each with a fascinating story of their own. The area is a working campus and we happened to visit on examination day (or diploma day, hard to tell by the way the students were dressed). There were lots of students celebrating all over town. It isn't clear that this type of information is publicly available so you could adjust your visit day. You might hope to visit something but suddenly it is closed for student purposes. For you Harry Potter fans, though there are several filming locations around the area, you need separate tickets for each one or you need a local Harry Potter tour and hope it can get you into what you hoped to see (again things could be closed at the last minute). It is a relatively easy day trip from London.

          Thoroughly enjoyable
          Thoroughly enjoyable, a great 1/2 day out being informative and entertaining. The courtroom, the gaol, the cells and convicts stories all very good, however the court case is definitely the star attraction

          Amazing house shown by friendly and knowledgeable guide
          We were lucky enough to have a private tour of Hatfield this week. The house is filled with incredible original paintings and treasures, all shown to us by Dermot, a charming and knowledgeable tour guide who took us through the spectacular rooms pointing out the features. The gardens are beautiful and the house, although splendid, has a family feel.

          Highlight of our London trip
          This was indeed the highlight of our trip. Lovely gardens and our guide Stephen told us much of the fascinating history and traditions of the City of London. Our mouths were hanging open in amazement much of the time. We encountered hardly any other tourists on this guided walk. Wonderful!

          Our tour guide Kevin was wonderful. His knowledge and stories about Winston Churchill were fascinating. We went to many special places frequented by Mr Churchill. Kevin was amazing and very friendly.

          Wonderful Tour and Guide
          We had a wonderful walking tour with Kevin! From the Anti-aircraft guns to the St Paul's area, to the Churchill War rooms, Kevin was a fountain of knowledge about everything in London. He knows every nook and cranny and has so much knowledge, that for us, this was not just a Blitz tour, but a fabulous tour of London. Adding to his knowledge is his warm and friendly personality. We would recommend Kevin for any London tour.

          Historical Excellence
          Came to Peterborough with friends and visited the Cathedral. ENTRY IS FREE but in lieu can leave a donation in the box provided on your way out. Steeped in history and if you walk to the back section of the church this is an addition to the original building...took our breath away. The ceilings, architecture is amazing. The inner peace felt was awesome. So worth a visit

          Fiction and Facts Made an Unforgettable Tour
          The option to meet at our hotel is why we chose the longer tour. Steven arrived early and took good care of us all morning. My husband is not a Dickens enthusiast and in hindsight it would have been safe for him to entrust me to Steven. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and saw places that Dickens wrote about: Marshalsea Prison and Little Dorrit’s Church were the most emotional for me but seeing where the young Charles Dickens lived while working in the shoe blacking factory brought me to tears.

          History Simply Explained
          Stephen Liddell of Ye Olde England Tours was my guide and took me through Nottingham streets, including St Mary’s Church where Robin Hood would visit and was spotted by a monk who reported the sighting to the Sheriff of Nottingham. The sheriff had him captured until Little John rescued him. This and many other snippets of history makes this a great tour. The walk through the City of Caves was amazing and the visit to the remains of Nottingham Castle very interesting. Stephen makes English history enjoyable and fun! Definitely recommend this tour.Ends with an ale at Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem pub - one of the oldest pubs in England.

          Fantastic Pub Tour!!!
          What an incredible tour!!! Our guide Stephen took us to five pubs that were fantastic with each one having a very unique history (and the beers were great too!). My favorite was the Mayflower, the oldest pub on the River Thames! Stephen is incredibly knowledgeable on London's history and shared many interesting stories about the pubs and the surrounding area. I would recommend this tour to anyone and we look forward to booking another tour with him next year!

        You'll need more then a day to tour the Historic Area but lucky the ticket last for a full year, great value for cash.
        It would be wonderful if the Chatham Naval Dockyard and HMS Belfast joined up as one or offering a 50% discount on each other's ticket entrance fee. Despite that it's a great place to visit. The food halls are also good value for you cash.

        Thanks for your great review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your tour so much; even though the weather is less good you get to see the amazing ships with hardly any tourists. Mark was so glad to know you had a good time as he has only recently joined the company so thank-you again.
