The tour with Bryan was a great educational experience, especially for a person like me who's a literary buff. He captured the magic of the beautiful city of Winchester beautifully. I would highly recommend him to everyone who is a tourist in Winchester.

Highly recommended for a proper insight into the City and its history!
