I had read about these walks on trip Advisor and wanted to go on one but arrived in Worcester at 3 minutes to 5. We managed to get to the Tourist Information who phoned up for us but there was no answer so she left our number. As we were leaving they phoned back to confirm our booking to our pleasure. At six we arrived and Paul introduced himself and told us he would try and answer any questions that we asked. We started our walk and Paul just brought everything to life. He is so enthusiastic! The walk overran because we had got so much to see and ask. It was a couple of hours well spent. We have been able to tell friends that live in Worcester all about things that they didn't know about. Brilliant
