Marcus - our Roman guide was excellent. He was knowledgable and entertaining. Discovering the secrets that lie underneath the floorboards of the local Pret was a joy! Would highly reccomend for locals and visitors from afar alike.

Tiberius took our group on a very interesting tour of Chester! He was so entertaining in his delivery of some very interesting facts. He is obviously very knowledgable and therefore kept the whole group's attention for the tour. It was well worth booking!

Fun, informative Chester tour with a real Roman Tiberius. Spellbound 11 - 72 year old audience, a couple hours that flew by on a cold sunny Christmas eve. Thank you, an incredible way to see beautiful Chester! Highly recommended.

It might be a little too adult and too long for a 5 year old. Of course, all 5 year olds have different levels of maturity.

The Chester Visitor information center is at Town Hall Northgate Street Chester CH1 2HJ. Just walk in and tell them when you would like to book. You meet your soldier right in front.
