Engaging and enthusiastic

Engaging Charlotte knows her stuff and guided us with enthusiasm and super interesting historical knowledge. Loved our photos thanks to her knowledge of great spots. Engaged with my 13 year old too and we were delighted when 3 days later we were walking past The Admiral pub and could call out Hiya Charlotte! And she remembered us!

Walking tour was great. Knowing the history and stories behind the places you see was really great. We were quite lucky about our tour guide. He had great knowledge and gave us valuable information all along the tour. The boat tour however was very short :(
