“Great Siege of Chester Tour”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

A really interesting and informative tour by our guide Ed. He really knows his stuff and has a real passion for the history of Chester. As a local who regularly walks around the City its amazing how little we've ever really seen or known about the city's history but the tour was a great way to learn. We would highly recommend to others.

“Walking Chester's civil war”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

An informative and entertaining evening with our guide Viv, who knows her stuff! Having lived in Chester for more than 30 years, it is embarrassing to realise just how little of my home town I knew!

“Civil war pub tour”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Lovely evening, visited five pubs all with strong historical links to the civil war, plus many places pointed out and discussed on the walks between. I'm a Cestrian, yet Viv was able to show me places I never knew existed. Her knowledge and love of history was superb, and she was able to share her enthusiasm with us. Strongly recommend.

“Chester Civil War Pub Tour”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

A very enjoyable and informative evening in the company of Ed, our extremely knowledgeable guide who brought the wonderful history of Chester to life with some very entertaining stories of the streets, pubs, characters and buildings of the Civil War years. I have worked in Chester for many years yet had never noticed some of the historic buildings that were pointed out during the tour and was unaware of the secrets held by many of its' oldest pubs! Could have listened to Ed for much longer had time permitted and would certainly recommend to other groups like ours

“Walking in the footsteps of Charles 1st”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We discovered the tour and booked it at the information Centre in beautiful Chester. It was chilly and quite breezy.No special clothing or footwear was required and Viv our friendly guide started the tour from the information Centre.She filled in the history pre to the civil war as we walked steadily to the magnificent City walls.Once the scene was set the facts about the siege of Chester were unfolded. Fascinating and gripping history. More than worth the time and good value, We felt richer for the experience . Next visit we will try Roman History tour
