The tour is excellent , with lots of interesting information on Shakespeare and his times. Stratford is a really lovely town. I did the tour twice , using the second time to hop off at the Shakespeare houses. The buses were only every hour on 14/15 Sept but it was easy enough to time them and fill the gaps.

This was one of our favourite activities in Stratford on Avon and a great way to get to know where everything was at the start of our time there. The audio was really good and very informative. Would certainly recommend.

Easy way to get to the main sights in one day. Earphones provided for narration about sights along the route while you travel too.

Beautiful places to visit and that certainly deserve another visit with a little more time

Very good guidens that gives a review to interesting places
