Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great little gem of a place for a few days visit. Everything is within walking distance and the cobbled streets, castle and cathedral are a joy to visit and amble around.
The castle was a guided tour which I would recommend.
Also had a 2.5 hour river walk which was very pleasant.
All the restaurants and pubs we visited were excellent.
We stayed at the Radisson hotel which proved convenient for access to town.
Great little trip and would definitely go back again.

Really enjoyed the Self guided walk. Nice to take my time and listen again when I wanted to. Also able to linger and look at the view as long as I wanted to. I will use again when I visit other cities.

Excellent self guided tour with very easy to use technology. The Durham commentator was clear in both walking directions and information. Just the right mix of history, legend and anecdotes.
Highly recommend and will be looking for more guides in other cities.

Technology worked well and gave good structure to our walk around Durham. I found the delivery lacked dynamism and for me the structure was a bit confusing, leaping about between centuries. It is good value for money however.

Solo today while husband was working. The audio tour was great and easy to follow. Loved the historical information to explain the beauty I was seeing. Durham is a gem and the interior of the cathedral was incredible. It is a massive building.

Very interesting tour. Able to to it at your own pace and to stop longer at certain places if wanted. Slight downside: There were 4 of us, but the audio didn’t always sync at the same time, but not a big problem.

VoiceMap worked really well, so we enjoyed a great tour of Durham with a very knowledgeable local guide. We will definitely use Voicemaps for future city tours and are already recommending it.

Couldn’t log on to site so missed the tour. Really disappointed and cost £6.70 too. No one to call to tell me what to do. Such a shame.

Glitchy. Constantly stopped working, resetting. Had to jump between things manually and it would still mess up. Can't really recommend.

Hi James We're sorry that you had problems with the app. Would you mind providing us with more information? If you manually skipped ahead from one location to the next, this can disrupt the automatic playback. Keep well, Alicia
