    Missed the meet-up location
    Geoffrey_T, Nov 2022
    Not blaming the tour operator, but the instructions had the taxi driver drop us off completely at the wrong part of town. I tried to get directions from the guide, but we couldn’t get to the group in time. Please give better meet up directions. The Titanic tragedy has long been so important to me. Very upset. The text I received from the guide giving details of another meet-up location were written so tiny that in the mad rush and rain, I never saw that he even responded.
    Response from Host, Nov 2022
    Thanks for the review and comments. It is most unfortunate that you missed the Tour. All guests receive a booking confirmation with clear information about the start point. This guest was a no show. Tour Operator out of courtesy rang this group and was informed they had gone to the wrong area of the town. Directions were given over the phone how best to find the start point. The Tour started late to give the group the best opportunity to arrive at the starting point. Out of fairness to all others, who were on time, and had no issue finding the start point, the Tour had to commence. Out of further courtesy another phone call was attempted to contact the lost group. There was no response. A voicemail was left instructing the group to check their email for detailed instructions about how to find the late meeting point. This is an email which is clearly written, with detailed address, and for added benefit a photo of the late meeting point. All due consideration and fairness was offered to this group. If you would like to discuss further please feel free to get in touch info@walshtours.com. Hope to see you in Southampton in the future. Cheers. Bryan.
    Take this tour!

    Brian Walsh is a witty, personable, very informative guide! He gave us a moving, empathetic view of the history of the Titanic (and great dinner recommendations!). Highly recommended - thanks, Brian!

    Memorable and Interesting Tour
    Randolph_H, Sept 2022
    This was an extremely interesting walking tour. Bryan, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the Titanic and its many connections to Southampton. We not only learned about the sinking of the Titanic and its impact on this city but also about the sailing of the Mayflower and Speedwell. For the price, it can't be beat and made our stay here memorable.

    Thanks so much for your most kind review. It was more than pleasure. Wishing you all the best. Cheers. Bryan.
    Most Amazing Exploration with Bryan
    Terry_M, Sept 2022
    We had a terrific tour with Bryan as our guide. His knowledge was astonishing, not only of the Titanic scenario, but of the history of Southampton in general. He wove his narratives into stories easily understood as well as fascinating to hear. I would not hesitate to recommend him strongly to my family and closest friends.
    Response from Host, Sept 2022
    What a kind and lovely review. I am so glad you enjoyed ouir Exploration of all the Deep History of Southampton! Wishing you all the best. Cheers. Bryan.
    Titanic - Southampton Story Reveled
    James_D, Aug 2022
    Historically informative. A good, comprehensive, insightful, 2 hr. walk around Southampton old town. The focus of course was the Titanic, its crew and passengers. A lot of information was also provided about the role that Southampton played in the deployment of allied troops during WWII, "D Day" and until VE.
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    Thanks for the review. It is appreciated. I am glad you heard hearing Southampton's story. Whishing you all the best. Cheers. Bryan.

    Whether a Titanic lover or not, this tour with Bryan is exceptional! Well worth your time and money. Hes educational, funny, and personable. Gives a good overview of the Titanic and how it all fits in to the history of Southampton.
    Great tour to explore Southampton
    Michael_N, Apr 2022
    Bryan took us on a great walking tour unravelling the history of the Titanic in Southampton. It was a great way to explore the town and find your bearings - especially if you've never been here before. Bryan was extremely knowledgeable, would highly recommend this tour.
    Southampton’s Historic Nautical Past
    Carolyn_Y, Nov 2021
    Walk the Secrets of the Titanic Walking Tour surpassed our expectations! The tour encompasses the many nautical and historical events that have occurred in Southampton through the ages. We were particularly excited to see and hear about the people of this area particularly the launching area of the Mayflower ship to the new world, and Plymouth colony. These Separatists who radically left England for the freedom of their religion must have been brave and hearty men and women. Bryan was an amazing guide! His knowledge of this entire area and its people made this tour very pleasurable! He included so many details about the Titanic’s design and her building, in addition to her staffing and the varied classes of guests aboard the maiden and final voyage. During the tour we viewed every memorial on the streets and buildings of the over 500 working staff that lost their lives that night. This tour will be a wonderful two hours spent if you love history and want to know the back story of Southampton’s historic nautical past.
    Great tour
    Jo_T, Oct 2021
    Bryan was an excellent tour guide informative and knowledgeable with humour thrown in. Also sharing other areas of history knowledge where appropriate. Took his time to chat to members of the group and make everyone feel included.
    An insightful Tour.
    Sarah_K, Oct 2021
