“Birmingham Tours arranged guides to show the city at its best and even organised great weather!” – Debbie Warren – UCE Birmingham
“Dear Sue – just to let you know that our group had an excellent trip to the Jewellery Quarter yesterday. The day worked out very well – coffee on arrival, then to St. Paul’s Church and a walking tour. After lunch we were able to visit the Museum and had an excellent tour. We all learned a lot. Especially liked the Drop Forge restaurant where we had lunch. Please pass on our thanks to Diana, who was an expert and friendly guide. Now I feel I must re-visit the Quarter to see more…. With thanks for your help in organising the day” – kind regards Janet Walker, Charlbury U3A
“We all had a good time thank you, and managed to dodge the rain. Please thank both of your guides, we learned a lot about the area and about some other places to visit in the neighbourhood we didn’t even know existed!” – Gemma Rogers, Connecting Element
