Sarah, that showed us around Leeds yesterday, was very knowledgeable & made the tour very enjoyable. Gave us a great insight into the history & things to look out for & an enthusiasm to go back to explore more places visited in depth i.e. we went & had lunch in the tiled cafe at the Leeds art gallery, which is an amazing room.

Really enjoyable experience. Brilliant tour guide, knowledgable, fun and made everyone feel welcome. Would definitely recommend if you enjoy, walking, history and a good look around!

A lovely experience. Well done to our guide Sarah who was knowledgeable and given the cold weather, kept us all warm. Lots of history about this great city. Well worth the fee.
