My children were full of laughter, lightness, and joy throughout the walk. Rose is so lovely, so likable and so wise! She throws these little seeds in her walks, the kids have tons of fun and learn without knowing.

Rose is a charismatic storyteller with enthralling stories. The stories are so rich and full of wonder, they nourish a very human part of us as in our modern lives we are often so cut off from the magic of nature.

A tour of Whitby with this lady is an unique experience. She's able to travel with you in time in a marvelous city with lots of magic stories. She's a great actress. I feel honoured that I had the occasion to met her.
