I was born in Chester and I have seen many changes to this beautiful city. Experience Chester with me and explore the best that Chester has to offer. This will include Roman Chester, the Rows, and the River Dee, I can also show you the hidden treasures and historic pubs. I can provide walking and coach tours of Chester.
I am qualified to teach English to non-English speakers, so I am sympathetic to the needs of non-native speakers.

Tina S said following her tour:
"Just to say we had a lovely tour of Chester today led by Ann Coward. She was so knowledgeable and interesting. My husband and I learned a great deal and we wanted to pass on how very good she was. Five Stars"
