It ended up being a private tour as I was the only person to show up at 3pm on a cold Monday afternoon. Titus was both informative and entertaining and kept spirits high even though he must have been freezing cold!

Marcus - our Roman guide was excellent. He was knowledgable and entertaining. Discovering the secrets that lie underneath the floorboards of the local Pret was a joy! Would highly reccomend for locals and visitors from afar alike.

The Chester Visitor information center is at Town Hall Northgate Street Chester CH1 2HJ. Just walk in and tell them when you would like to book. You meet your soldier right in front.
