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.

On a midweek overcast day in early April I was very fortunate to have a 1-to-1 tour with Sue who had an encyclopaedic knowledge of Winchester & English history through the centuries. But more importantly Sue’s enthusiasm for the subject matter & her ability to communicate it shone through. Would thoroughly recommend !

The Winchester Guided Walking Tours were the highlight of our visit to England. The manager, Gail, was flexible and assisted with our ticket changes due to train issues. She was v. warm and friendly when we met. We took the Lower & Upper Winchester Guided Walking Tours which were very worthwhile. Both guides, Erica and Sue, were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They not only explained the history or the area but integrated both tours to put all in context. It was a delightful day we will cherish. These tours enhanced my historical understanding of the area and are a must do for Jane Austen fans.

Judith was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and she made the history come alive. Her afternoon tour was different than morning. I wish I could have done both of them. Highly recommend.

Had an amazing day tour with Sue - absolutely wonderful experience. As a guide, she was extremely knowledgeable. She was also a lot of fun to spend the day with. She did a great job mixing the ancient history of the city and its sites with modern culture. Highly recommended tour, and highly recommend asking for Sue. I would definitely do so again.

Very enjoyable tour of Winchester given by Valerie. Very interesting learning about the history of the city. Well paced and a small amount of people in the tour which was nice. Will certainly visit again and do another tour.

We started our tour of Winchester with Claire Dickson. She is an amazing guide; extremely Knowledgeable and perfectly timed with her explanations. We had the time to think on what she said and join in.
Our visitors were completely enthralled and we, as a couple who have lived in Winchester for three decades, were finding out more and more interesting facts about and aspects of the city. Well worth the time and money. This will be our go to entertainment with every visitor we have staying over.
Well done Claire and well done Tourist Guides.

Fascinating introduction to Winchester (Upper Winchester Tour). Patrick was extremely knowledgeable, both of Winchester (obviously a proud "Winchestonian") and more generally, which made for a most interesting and enjoyable hour and a half. We always enjoy a walking tour of places we visit and Winchester was no different. Great for orientation and an introduction to a place - and in this case, definitely leaving us wanting to know more. Thank you Patrick.

Guide Sue was excellent, balanced the odd light hearted anecdote with weighty historical knowledge, communicated very well. Did not seem phased by very cold temps - brill.

We popped into Winchester Tourist Information for a map and were met by a Guide who was so informative and friendly. The information centre is full of beautiful things made by local artists, that alone is well worth a visit along with the friendly staff. The lady gave us a very comprehensive map and explained where we were in relation to the Christmas market and the Cathedral, together with the best places to eat and where the restrooms were. The market was very crowded with lots of stalls selling unusual things, and as the restaurants were also very full, we went to Marks & Spencer for a light lunch. We also visited the Cathedral and the stalls around it. Thank you historic Winchester for a lovely visit and we will be back when the weather warms up and we can explore more.

A group of 4 of us braved rain and s possible Rail strike to enjoy this walk.
Clmm In order to avoid the surging crowds visiting the Christmas, Claire our guide took us via the beautifully busily surging River Itchen and showed us many treats including the old flint Roman walls. Later we braved some puddles to see the atmospheric ruins of the old Bishops Palace.

Very highly recommended!
