Informative and entertaining without being an information overload, Guide very committed to his subject matter and little bursts of Shakespeare in situ appreciated. Thank you

This was a really interesting and informative talk, delivered really well. The leader's passion for the subject came through really strongly. Would definitely recommend.

It was amazing to spend these two hours with Declan who is dedicated to sharing his enthusiasm about the life path of Shakespeare - including a literal path through London, which is mostly unmarked and therefore invisible. This is the point Declan is trying to make - the places associated with Shakespeare could be better signposted and celebrated in London. At present, you can see them only with your imagination if kindly aided by Declan - with quotes and storytelling that make you travel through time. Plenty of time to ask questions on this tour, and a knowledgeable guide to answer them all!
