Today I walked the North Terrace with Graeme and was really interested in his knowledge of the area. Even though I’d walked down this street a number of times I was surprised about how much I’d missed. Graeme is an excellent communicator and tour companion. The pace was just right and the two hours passed so quickly. I’m very glad I did this tour. Definitely a worthwhile addition to my holiday itinerary.

I had a cracking time, so much information, I learned a lot from you. I guess you can say, I was very lucky, as I was the only one there. So you had plenty of time, to give to me. So anyone thinking of going on the tour, don’t, just go 😊. Mike.
