We had a lovely time! We were running late and despite that Julian had his phone on so we were able to catch up with the tour after it had started, which was very kind of him. I live in Brighton and I learned tons of things about my home town that I never knew. I'll definitely do other tours... More

Julian did an excellent job at not just introducing today's Brighton to a Canadian student, but really going into depth regarding the city's history and underlying culture. It was at the perfect place, that is without too many gaps while keeping everything easy to understand. Furthermore, he made sure we were exposed to the best parts of Brighton to ensure... More

Having done quite a few walking tours throughout Europe - Big ones like Sandeman's and small ones, I have always preferred small ones because the guides are generally better at story telling, have more historical knowledge, etc. Unfortunately this particular tour was a disappointment for the 10 pounds per person price for an hour 10 minutes. There was barely any... More

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy my tour. I'm even more sorry that you didn't make your concerns known at the end of the tour when you appeared happy enough? Looking through your other walking tour reviews it seem other guides fail to meet your demanding standards so I'm not alone. I won't lower myself to argue about... More

We met with Julian on a chilly but dry day at the entrance to Brighton Pier. We covered a lot of ground and gleaned a lot of interesting information on the history, culture and architecture of Brighton. Julian was friendly and helpful. Well worth the time and money!

Julian is a very knowledge, excellent, and experienced guide. As a non-native speak, I found it very easy to understand what he says. His introduction of Brighton's history and sharing of interesting stories turned the walk into a voyage of time. Attending the walk is a very good way to get to know the past and present of Brighton in... More

We have recently started to book something 'a little different' once a week (such as talks, and shows, and theatre etc.) - And despite living in Brighton for 7 years we thought this sounded like a nice lunchtime activity.
