Our guide, Jonathan, was knowledgeable but still entertaining. He kept time well. With his comments and visuals he brought the city of Birmingham close to us. We enjoyed every minute of the tour.

HI - Thanks for taking the time to feedback to us - viatl as we ensure we offer great fun tours of the city through the important year of 2022 in Birmingham. Do come again soon on one of other tours - the Sunday tour; 'Discovering Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter' restarts on March 6th and is full of surprises.

私たちが日本人であることに気を使ってもらった。ゆっくりとはっきりとした英語で解説してもらった。少人数(6人)のツアーだったこともあり親切に丁寧に案内してもらい楽しい2時間が過ごせた。歩くスピードも速すぎず遅すぎず適度で心地よかった。
