Hay Tours have received some great feedback. In fact everyone who has attended a Tour has been really positive. Here are some customers comments ...
We thoroughly enjoyed the (Hay Castle) tour yesterday and found the tour guide both knowledgeable and engaging.
Just to say that our day out was a complete success! Alan Nichols was a splendid guide. All the members thought the tour was professional entertaining and educational. Thank you.

Please pass on our many thanks to Dave and his colleague for a wonderful and informative tour today. Dave truly new the subject matter thoroughly and was a mine of information on this fascinating case - probably a miscarriage of justice with devastating consequences. Both tour guides were especially patient with Jackie who is profoundly deaf and that was really appreciated.

We came from Hanover, Germany for the (Hay Festival) Winter Weekend and booked both tours - they were both great fun. We recommend them to any visitor.

Fascinating historical buildings and informative tour. We came from Suffolk for the Winter Festival and have thoroughly enjoyed it.
M. & S. Cave 28.11.15
We really enjoyed our walk, it was lovely not to have a ‘typical’ history tour and the stories were really entertaining and interesting. A huge thank you...We thoroughly enjoyed it and would book again - will definitely recommend. David is an excellent and interesting guide.
What a charming, colourful, patchwork history! Our guide was delightful (particularly loved the Norman helmet) and full of interesting stories and speculation. Great to be able to see somewhere so unpolished before it's been restored, loved it!

Could not have had a better guide. Very enthusiastic, clear and considerate.Guest from Bridgnorth, Shropshire, August 2015.We are back home in Denmark after a wonderful vacation in Wales. The Tour was one of our favourite activities.C. Frusciante, July 2015.Our tour guide was wonderful, with a succession of different props to use when he was talking about different times in the history of the castle...I learned a lot about the different phases of the building.Leslie Arrowsmith - Life in Hay blog, July 2015(The Hay Castle Tour was) very interesting. Looking forward to coming back when the restoration is underway! Excellent to have access to otherwise restricted areas - thank you.

Fascinating insight into the chequered history - I feel privileged to be here at the start of what will hopefully be an exciting journey for Hay Castle.

The guides were very knowledgable and entertaining - not a 'dry hour'. I'd like to do it again! Well done.A. Tollemarche, Marlbrough, New ZealandJust wanted to thank you for a superb day in Hay on Sunday (19 July). Both guides were superb and the Kington History Society members had a great time.

I would like to thank you on behalf of South Worcestershire Archaeological Group for an excellent visit to Hay-on-Wye on 10th May. All our members have come back full of praise. They would like you to know how much they liked your stories which very much enhanced their knowledge and appreciation of Hay. Thank you again for making the visit so enjoyable.

Good for the soul
Hay Festival customer, May 2015
A well managed tour. Started promptly. A good idea to have someone at the back of the group to mop up stragglers like ourselves! We think you have thought of everything. Also the talk covered so many aspects of Hay life. Such a good idea.
Customers from Hay Festival 2015.
Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, kind and interesting. I will recommend Hay Tours to others.
Visitor from Essex, May 2015.
An investing and informative tour. No improvements necessary!
Visitor from the Midlands, May 2015
The (Armstrong Tour) walk was fantastic! It is a credit to your delivery and your knowledge that you held the attention of that rabble for the whole walk. Many after spoke positively both about your knowledge of major armstrongs story and how well the story facilitated a walk around the town showcasing parts of hay we would not have explored without your guidance.

Both Rob and I thought the Hay Heritage Tour was brilliant. We will certainly be telling the Town Council about it next month. Thank you once again. P.S. You were right, you did tell me at least fifteen things about Hay I didn't know!
