This was a Christmas present from last year which we were worried we wouldn't be able to use because of lockdown and local restrictions. Luckily we managed to get booked in with Gareth just before the second lockdown - and what a great experience to have had just before even more restrictions! Gareth was a great guide, giving just the right amount of interesting and accessible history about Chester. He's such a bubbly guide, and so perfect for the job. He took us to some great little eateries, introducing us to places which we didn't know about but will definitely go back too. He has a great relationship with all of the places he took us to which really makes you feel so welcome. We can't wait to come out of lockdown now so we can go back and visit some of the gems which Gareth took us to! A very well worth Christmas present - can I have it again next year?!!

Well! What can we say! In one word, AMAZING! If you are considering doing this tour, DO IT! Gareth is the nicest friendly man, you feel completely at ease immediately and what he doesn’t know about chester isn’t worth knowing! We are locals and yet we learnt so much we simply didn’t know and visited places we had walked past but never noticed (even a street we had never walked up!) the food was delicious at each stop (you won’t want to eat again!) and the big thing that surprised us, is how engaging all the independent food retailers were with us! They knew we were coming and they stopped and welcomed us and really wanted to tell us their story, it was so informative as well as gluttonous! We will now go back and say hi to these places and support the independent retailer One tip! Look out for Linda!!! 😂😂 Seriously, Gareth, thank you, you make this so special, keep up the great work! Alex and Steve xx

Still buzzing just having finished our tour with Gareth – thank you very much Gareth. All very interesting as others have described in their reviews but the highlights included sampling various unusual and interesting wines alongside what must be the best pizza I’ve ever tasted – a meal that would normally be a little over stodgy for me was amazing and light thanks to its 48 hours of fermentation. Must try the accompanying Italian restaurant that is on Watergate Street. Gorgeous scotch pancakes with all sorts of accompanying mischief;) Historical snippets were great entertainment also and lovely to get a reminder of how wonderful the city walls are to walk around. Highly recommended. Also fantastic value.

Pierogi (Polish dumplings) was very good, tasty and good service, nothing too much trouble, but other stops were also well chosen and equally good to give an all round experience. We have walked past Pierogi many times but never gone in. You should go in! Gareth the guide is friendly and knowledgeable about Chester but didn't over load with facts. Had to cancel due to increased C19 restrictions but Gareth was very accommodating and the couple with us were very good company, adding to the experience. This was given to us as a gift for our Ruby Wedding anniversary but we would pay, very good value. It was conducted safely and with good humour given the times. Gareth packs a lot in. The visit to the market was an unexpected foodie stop. Well worth a visit. The tour celebrates small business, long may the tour and businesses continue.
