Overview

All tours are led by fully qualified Blue and Green Badge Guides. A guided tour of Chester is the best way of seeing the city and there is a tour at 10.30am every day of the year (and again at 2pm from Easter to end October). Tours generally last for approx 1.5 hrs so even if you are only in Chester for a few hours, make the most of your time here and let one of our experienced guides show you all the highlights of this beautiful city. A variety of sightseeing tours (by foot and by coach) and themed walks is also available all year round for both groups and individual visitors and at a time to suit you. Guides need to be booked in advance for these.

Liz lead our walk which was fun, informative and a really good way to see Chester. I was really impressed with her knowledge and how she involved the whole group. I would recommend this walk as a great way to begin to see the city.
