    Great tour! Learned about the city's history and some of its interesting people and places. The guide also pointed out cool things I would have walked by otherwise like the "Kiss Wall," a seafront statue. Also got great recommendations on other things to do and where to eat.

    Eileen_H, Jul 2022
    Pretty good. It was hot day. Brighton was packed. We saw interesting things. Knowledgeable A little short on historical knowledge.
    Thank you Russell!
    Vidushi_A, Jun 2022
    We were in Brighton for a day and this experience was definitely worth it! We were running slightly late and our guide, Russell made a considerable effort to accommodate us so we don't miss out- we are very thankful for that. I would recommend this guided walk to anyone visiting Brighton, it's a lovely place and such rich history there. Definitely helped us move around easily after our tour, because we were made familiar with most of the places during the tour. Cheers!
    Very good

    Great orientation of Brighton, lots of laughs
    Joanna_O, Apr 2022
    Julian was very engaging and had lots of stories to tell. I had been to Brighton a couple of times but always found it a confusing place to visit. This tour helped me place places and made for a much better trip, using my time well. Highly recommended.
    All you didn't know about Brighton in an enjoyable 90 minute walking tour.
    David_G, Jan 2022
    My wife and I were joined by two gentlemen for this tour conducted by Julian, who turned out to be a font of local knowledge and a humorous raconteur. As regular visitors to Brighton we were familiar with the places and landmarks visited but fascinated by the stories about the Prinnie, Mrs Gunn and her dipping, the ghostly Chief Officer in the town hall basement, the secret passages and many other little nuggets of information that brought Brighton's' houses, former inhabitants, streets and lanes to life.
    Knowledgable, historical and contemporary, very experienced guide with a great personality.
    Nicole_W, Aug 2022
    Julian was very likeable and shared both historical knowledge and humour. I liked his style of delivery and his obvious experience of guiding walks. I especially enjoyed the history around the area of Steine. I would recommend Julian's tour.
    Pretty interesting
    Sabrina_G, Apr 2022
