About Sightseeing Tour of Olde Norwich
The iconic Sightseeing Tour of Olde Norwich takes you on a 5 mile tour of Norwich's medieval narrow lanes and streets in a 1920's Charabanc. This gives you a perfect vantage point to sit back and take in all the sights of the Lanes which are inaccessible to larger buses. Over the years the tour guide has won over many visitors with his extensive knowledge, wit, charm and humour and many have returned years later for a second tour! The tours start each day from the bus stop on Castle Meadow directly outside Waterstones book shop at 2pm each day in Sprint Summer and Autumn. We look forward to seeing you aboard!

John Humphreys was our guide for a tour of Norwich city wall / gates. He could not have been more knowledgeable, entertaining, warm or generous with his time. A wonderfully inspiring tailor-made tour which was fantastic value for money. Comes highly recommended.

Fred was a proper gentleman, he picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off at the Castle, for our next piece of culture. The tour did take 2 hours and he still only charged us £7.50/each. His all electic car took us to places you would not be able to get to in a bus. Highly recommended and excellent value for money. Call him on 07917 664472 or e-mail tour@oldenorwich.co.uk

Our two-hour walking tour of Norwich was one of the highlights of our trip. John Humphreys, our guide, was a marvelous storyteller, making history come alive at every turn. Medieval churches and cobblestone roads make for great photo ops, but John’s passionate tales of the Anglo Saxon and Norman inhabitants of the city had all 12 in our group captivated. Not to be missed if you plan a trip to this historic area of England.

We wanted something for the whole family to enjoy on a wet November day. This was perfect. We were a group of locals entertaining an overseas family member and we all enjoyed ourselves and learned things that we hadn’t know about Norwich. Fred is a font of knowledge, friendly and a local treasure. We are all so pleased that we took this trip through the lanes and hidden parts of Norwich. I had seen his lovely old vehicle in the past and never took the trip. Initially, I was quite disappointed when I realised that we were going to be traveling in an ordinary passenger van, but Fred’s knowledge and enthusiasm made up for any disappointment. I highly recommend the Sightseeing Tour of Olde Norwich.

Easy to book, just call the mobile number. There isn"t much Fred doesn"t know about Norwich, (which incidentallly in my opinion is more interesting than York or Bath) but the tour is packed with information, great value, & a lovely, lovely chappie. When we left the bus, we accidentally bumped into Fred, who then showed us into the beautiful St . Peter Mancroft Church to show us the lovely paintings, - he is so- o-o enthusiastic it is refreshing to hear.............Wonderful! In my humble opinion Norwich is undersold by the Tourist Information, \council, etc.We were incidentally on a Baker Dolphin holiday ,Fred was recommended by our driver ,a great tour of the city and well worth the money.
