Our guide, Phil was very knowledgeable and allowed everyone an opportunity to ask questions throughout the trip. Our driver was excellent! Our time to enjoy each location on the tour was limited, but enough to see all the important things.

The Dockyard is just a very interesting place to visit and this was my third visit. We are fortunate to have in the UK such places to visit and it is of interests to a range of ages.

Great deal. The eye was shut down but they were able to give us tickets for the next day without any issues at all. So glad that I bought them together.

Allow plenty of time for taking photos. And don't wear yellow shirt as it don't show on the green screen photos

Very interesting tour. Covered a lot of facts and details
