Mad Alice was brilliant! Despite having quite a large group she made a point to interact with everyone in the group and amazingly remembered everyone's names (she is magic!). The tour itself was fabulous with so much information delivered in such a fun way, definitely worth going on this tour!

Highly recommend this tour. Mad Alice delivers a great tour in a hugely entertaining and informative manner. She interacts with the audience throughout the tour and is always willing to answer any questions posed. We enjoyed it so much that we booked another tour when visiting the city a few months later to bring along a couple of our family. Even enjoyed being selected by Mad Alice to play the part of Dick Turpin during one of her narratives. Great choice for walking tour

The whole tour from start to finish was amazing. Mad Alice really kept us entertained and she was so friendly. She spoke to everyone in the large group and made everyone feel included. She had us hooked from the beginning.
