Had the pleasure of going on a guided tour with Richard, and did not regret it for a second, even though the wind and occasional rain hit us from all directions.

It was just ten people on the tour, so there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions. There’s is a bit of walking, but we three king-sized brothers in our 50s managed this without any problems, so it shouldn’t be any problems for most people. A great way of getting to know the city, highly recommended!
Very enjoyable tour with Stuart Usher. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining, and the whole group thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Highly recommended!
