Full description

Travel to all the Shakespearean Houses: Shakespeare's Birthplace, Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Mary Arden's House, New Place, Nash's House, and Hall's Croft. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre where the Bard's plays are performed for the majority of the year. The Holy Trinity Church where Shakespeare is buried, protected by a cursed tombstone.

Interesting tour visiting historic places. BUT the firm has not invested in the audio technology and many of the audio sockets did not work, neither was it obvious which language setting to choose as the numerals were not visible in the sun. So we missed the first ten minutes while searching for a seat where the audio worked. But then it was magical.

We got a family ticket for 5, which was great value. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour which was interesting for the kids and the adults. We then used the service as. Hop on, hop off, all day, multiple times to get to different tourist places. Drivers were both very helpful and friendly, buses were clean with working equipment. Just be careful of the low hanging tree branches of you are on the top deck, although the virtual tour guide will warn you of this too. Looking forward to our next visit! Thankyou :)

This was an excellent way to get an overall view of Stratford, especially since it was a beautiful day and I was on my own without transport. The commentary was very entertaining and being on the top outside deck meant that one could see over the walls into the gardens, a view not available to the walker. I highly recommend this activity. One note, the meeting point is NOT at the Swans Nest Boat house, but at the tourist office.
