"Really enjoyable and interesting tour, the guide clearly knew his stuff and shared lots of stories about Chester and the Stuart/Tudor period (and a few ghost stories thrown in...). Fantastic to see inside Stanley Palace, and lots of tips on other buildings to visit."


"Back in London now but thank you so much for your tour of Lancaster yesterday. Christine and I really enjoyed it. You spoke well and clearly even tho in character and linked up for me many of the buildings I had noticed as I walked to and fro. It's a really good enterprise and I wish you luck."


"The tour lasted 90 minutes and Miles was able to tell us many interesting facts about the Tudor/Stuart history in Chester. He was excellent with my daughter who is a budding historian, taking time to answer questions and gave her encouragement to learn more."
