Entertaining and Interesting Tour
Oct 2021
We enjoyed a private walking tour with Bryan. We were able to absorb so much more than we would have in a larger group. Bryan's presentation style is interesting and entertaining. He also has a wide depth of international experiences, so he can relate to us at our level of understanding. Excellent experience!

What a brilliant way to round off our trip to Winchester!

Bryan is a superb guide. We had a fascinating tour of Winchester peppered with historical and literary tales brought to life by Winchester's beautiful surroundings and Bryan's rich storytelling. You will go on journey that incorporates everything from Arthurian legend, Jane Austen to 1960s No1 hits! Well judged and well paced.
We have done a lot of walking tours and this was among the best we have experienced, Bryan is such a personable, knowledgeable and professional guide. It would be of interest to most people and Bryan was able to answer so many questions and adapt to his audience. Highly recommended!
