A Recent Review of this tour

Just a great tour. I have used Toursbylocals maybe 20 times and never had a bad experience but Keith's tour was certainly the best. He's down to earth. Right away I felt like I was going around with a friend. A friend with an encyclopedic knowledge of his subject. Which can be the entirety of England and Wales and I know he guides at least as far as Edinburgh. Amazing.
