Just a handful of recent reviews:

"I organised a walking tour for 18 people, including Finnish visitors. Although I was unable to attend the event myself, I have received great feedback. Everyone found the tour extremely interesting and Chris is a fountain of knowledge about the area. A great time was had by all and I would thoroughly recommend the tour."

"A friend and I went on a Derbyshire Dales tour and a Nottinghamshire tour recently and we thought it was great. The tour guide was really friendly and informative and both tours covered a large area. We went to several places in a car which was very comfy and spacious. We'll definately use The Nottinghamshire Experience next time. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!"

"Our American visitors very much enjoyed hearing all about the history of Nottingham. Your warm and friendly attitude Chris made the tour very interesting and welcoming to our guests. Many thanks once again."
