This is an excellent experience, the tour guide Jonathan is super thoughtful, funny, polite, engaging, and considerate (especially with ppl that are a little bit or expressively late, but he is truly respectful with ppl that match the walk time schedule), and informative throughout. The civil purpose of saving money for homeless people is another great cause to support. The experience was enriching and funny, providing very good insights into Birmingham's history. The price and the walk totally worth it, my husband and I recommend it.

Thanks so much for your feedback. Great to have you with us on tour. Yes, when people come late we do try very hard to help them but also ensure everyone else has a good experience as well. Humour and interesting content that is 'real' about Birmingham is what we are about and so glad you enjoyed it so much. Check out all our tours on the Positively Birmingham walking tour website.

Jonathan was engaging, considerate and informative throughout. His knowledge and passion was good yet not boring. Excellent way to find out plenty about Birmingham and relatively good value for money as he throws in a walking guide and another gift (won’t spoil the surprise!). The only downside was that he did try to promote the books he has written about the city. That was funny ( ha ha) more than anything!

Hey - thanks for great feedback. The tours are based on the best-selling book of the city - Positively Birmingham - so yes it does come up a bit sometimes on tour. Other times it does not even get a mention. Do come on our very special Sunday tour when you can takes the secret canal to the Jewellery Quarter. See dates and book on Positively Birmingham walking tour website.

The tour was very informative it showed a lot if things we would have walked past and known nothing about without our guide ,Jonathan who is a very well educated man and made the tour fun and he also raises money for the homeless people of Birmingham. My wife and I both enjoyed this tour and bought one of Jonathan's books which are very good too,if going to Birmingham give one of his tours a go it was worth every penny Thank you Jonathan, keep up the good work !.
