    Had the best experience ever. I’ve been at a lot of the stadiums since I’m a big Chelsea supporter, but only Athletic history made me book a tour even without the game itself. It was absolutely amazing and I can’t thank both of our tour guides enough. They were incredible & it was really interesting talking to someone who’s travelling away as well & knows their club 100%. Unfortunately I didn’t ask their name but the tour was on 26.01.20 and I would recommend this to everyone. My friend she’s not a football fan, but she enjoyed it a lot!
