As a first time visitor to Birmingham this tour, led by Arthur, was an excellent introduction to the city. Hearing about the history set the scene followed by seeing, and hearing about, the fascinating sights all around the city. Arthur was an excellent guide sharing his enthusiasm about the city in a lively, informative and interesting way. A great introduction to our weekend in Birmingham.

I do a lot of city walking tours when I travel, but this one was just ok. Maybe it was the city itself, but I didn't love it unfortunately
