What people are saying about Winchester

It was like a private tour. We were the only two people on Bryan’s tour. He did an exceptional job. He is very experienced leading tours and very knowledgeable about the history of Winchester (and Britain). We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience Winchester through the eyes of a local expert

We had an absolutely awesome experience. Bryan made it very entertaining, animated and fun, despite the complexity and versatility of the information. He made it feel and sound like a time travel, bringing to life the historical and literary characters.

Best way to start a holiday, To see and hear about the city that you might miss out on otherwise. I will definitely do it again for other city’s. Paul
