What people are saying about Leeds

We were only 2 on the tour so got plenty of attention, interaction and information from tour guide. She was a student (sorry can't remember your name) and was very knowledgeable about Leeds and the buildings, arcades, places to visit and places to eat. I would recommend this tour to give you information about the history of Leeds and get your bearings of where places of interest are

Annabella was lovely & very knowledgeable. Visiting our family but never properly walked around. Went to places we have never seen. Wonderful experience.
