Booked a tour for my Guides only to find they didn't turn up to take us despite telephone calls to the company. It left 12 very disappointed young girls who were looking forward to a new experience. Would not recommend the company to anyone.

Fabulous hour relaxing even with our children, taking in the beautiful surroundings of Norwich. Perfect mix of historical facts and a lazy Sunday afternoon. Will definitely recommend it.
