    Although a cold and somewhat wet afternoon on Monday 27th Nov '23, myself and my brother & sister-in-law really enjoyed the 2-hour walk around Winchester and felt it captured all the main sights and points of interest. Brian - our guide - was very well informed and tailored the content and information to his audience (5 of us). At the end of the walk (near the Wykeham Arms) we were lucky as we were able to have a look around the unusually quiet Xmas market next to the Cathedral. I now feel suitably motivated to consider booking the 'Secrets of Titanic' walk with Brian in Southampton in 1Q 2024, when I will next be in that City.

    Had a fab tour. Bryan had so much knowledge of Winchester and it's past. He kept the tour entertaining and enjoyable and we saw many parts of Winchester we otherwise would not have known existed. We would recommend for all ages.

    We were lucky enough to choose Bryan as our tour guide on our tour of Winchester today. His historical knowledge and his enthusiasm for Winchester made the tour so much more interesting. We did not realise how important Winchester was in English history and he made this beautiful City come alive with his knowledge. Would highly recommend this tour
