“Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend”

Great tour and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. We had some Dutch visitors over and decided this would be a fun and informative introduction to Chester.

Our guide, Tiberius, is a great guy with a natural affinity with people and lots of knowledge about Roman Chester. His costume is amazing and we also listened with interest about his custom tattoos winch look awesome. Tiberius took us to some places we had never been in Chester and which the general public can’t get into.

We had a really enjoyable time and the tour is well worth the money. Also worth noting that last year, when we had to cancel the tour due to personal reasons the company refunded the money and were so helpful and understanding. A lesson for the big `coriaorates’ out there!,
