  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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 great way to spend the afternoon with friends learning about Colchester. Tour guide Di was very informative and her tour was enjoyable. Would recommend this trip. Choose a good weather day as you want to spend time looking at the different buildings and understanding their impact upon history.

    An outragously entertaining and fasciniating journey through the history of Colchester and Roman life, and how the Roman Empire still influences our lives today.
    Ray's enthusiasm and knowledge carried us back two millennia to discover the reality and harshness of daily life.....unless ofcourse you were a Roman or someone of importance! The tour transports you from before the arrivial of the Romans, the changes following their occupation and eventual departure, the arrival of the Normans, then onward to the English Civil War, eventually bringing you back to the present day and how the Romans had an influence on the Space Shuttle.
    This tour is highly recommended for all ages.

    Loved the storyline and challenges at each stop but most of all I enjoyed learning about Roman Colchester. The game ended right at the castle so we were able to go in and see more finds!

    This is a fantastic tour! I really recommend it. Our tour guide, Sophie, took my wife and I around Colchester castle, neighbouring areas, the Dutch quarter, and around the Jumbo water tower. Sophie provided really clear explanations that combined a nice balance of facts and anecdotes. Sophie is passionate and enthusiastic, which made the history really engaging. Sophie is also friendly and approachable and was really happy to answer questions and chat. We're looking forward to taking one of her other tours.

    A lovely way to explore the city and its links to the past. The Roman connections are fascinating especially as so much time has passed.
    Sharing the adventure with family or friends is an excellent way to spend a lovely day. The quiz element of the game makes it fun to see who can get it right first and if you go wrong as we did, then retracing your steps becomes a challenge, all in all a different and fun filled day.
