Liz, was excellent! She was so thorough in her explanation of what we were seeing, as well as the historical context. She has a wealth of knowledge and made our time with her extremely enjoyable. We would recommend the package with her to anyone that is interested. You will not regret it.

Liz was very good but value for money very poor £235 for tour and then £82 for the entrance into cathedral
Response from Host, Dec 2022
I'm sorry that you feel this way about the cost of the tour, but glad that you enjoyed it nonetheless. However, it is made clear in the information that the entrance fee is extra. My fee is in line with those recommended for Blue Badge Guides by the Guild of Guides and includes the commission paid to Viator.
