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.

A fascinating guided walk around the historic centre of Salisbury. Our guide, David, was lovely and extremely knowledgeable, pointing out so much that we would never have noticed or even known about otherwise. A really well spent hour and half(ish). I would recommend this walking tour to anyone, even those who live in Salisbury.

Thank you for your kind comments about David's tour around the City. We like to think a Blue Badge Guide makes visits much more enjoyable. It seems that David proved that to be true.

This is a great tour! I've been living in Salisbury for a while but I just didn't know anything about its history and never really taken the time to explore the buildings. Our guide (John) was so knowledgeable. He took us right back to the beginning of the Salisbury story and then we walked round and he explained the history of some of the old buildings interspersed with lots of anecdotes and stories. A very interesting, informative tour - I'd highly recommend to locals and tourists alike.

We would really recommend starting your exploration by joining one of the Blue Badge guided tours of the city area - book at the Information Centre. This is the best way to get a feel for the place, and to decide what buildings or organisations to visit. Our guide (Georgina) was friendly and helpful and provided just the right amount of information to want us to find out more.

Great walking tour of the main section of the city. Glad we did it. I forget that these tours are always interesting and simple, well guided and you get so many interesting bits you'd never get otherwise. Would recommend. We booked ours the day of in the City Info office at the 'fish market' square.

Sue was very professional, knowledgeable and adaptable to any background noises that occurred ad hoc along the way. She told many interesting and humerus stories combined with facts, and answered any questions easily.
