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.

Booked the Dark Side tour as I was looking for something to do with a friend visiting from America, and it sounded like something we'd both be interested in. Al was a great tour guide and storyteller, and he took us to places that I was unaware of, even as a local. Would 100% recommend it!

The walking trip was great fun, Al was very engaging and had a wealth of knowledge on the darker side of Brum. Would recommend this for anyone who wants to learn about some of Birmingham's darker side.

Absolutely brilliant. Learnt so much. Birmingham came alive as we walked through the streets learning the history, how Birmingham started, got its name, evolved. I love Birmingham anyway. Came here 50 years ago from Australia as a young lad. First time back. How it has changed. To do this tour and be shown all of the little fascinating places and hear all of the wonderful stories was pure magic. Thank you so much. I loved it. Completely recommend this tour.

Al took us round the city and the tour was fascinating. The route covered a lot! Social, military, craft & manufacturing, transport histories. Al is super enthusiastic and very knowledgeable and friendly. If you want to learn a lot from a local, book Al.

Joining Al's tour was definitely the best way to discover Birmingham in the short amount of time I had in the city. Al is a superb storyteller who will take you through centuries of history and show you how Birmingham grew from a small, landlocked city to the ‘workshop of the world’. Bostin bab !
