It was so good to be in the company of someone who shared my own enthusiasm for Shakespeare. Declan had great enthusiasm for his subject, yet was amusing too. Great guide. It was also interesting to discover different parts of the city,a part from those related to Shakespeare.

I felt that the tour guide was very rehearsed and though what he was saying was interesting, I didn't feel like he was talking to me. Overall, I loved the walk. It was worth my investment.
