I have lived in Birmingham my entire life and learned so much that we didn't know. We did tour 3 and the time flew by as we heard about history, people and places that have shaped this amazing city. New respect for Birmingham! Jonathan Berg was our guide and he was engaging,

Hi We could not face replying to reviews for a week or so - last week we had to refund pre-bookings of tour for the next few months....of course we have given everyone a full refund.....and things were going so well! Lovely comments from an amazing person - thanks so much for coming on tour with your friends. One day we will restart our tours and that will be some big party - until then keep safe and look forward to seeing you on the other side of the pandemic!

I have visited Birmingham many times, but didn't know much about it - hence the tour. It was really really interesting. Small group of six, we did have headphones sets, that were helpful in noisy areas. Lady guide was really easy to understand. It showed me areas & places I

Yes, Dawn is a fnatastic guide and along with assistant guide Maria sound like you all had a good time. The live audio helps in noisy places and is particularly helpful at present in enablings us to all keep the 'social distance' we are asking our guests to separate by of at least a metre. We have a total of 4 tours of the city centre at present - do consider coming on the others next time you are in the city - full details on the Positively Birmingham walking tour website.

We had a great 2h tour with a small group and discovered lovely places by foot. Lot of background information in best understandable English. Last Minute online booking was no problem. Thanks, keep it up!

Thanks for coming with us. Amid the turmoil of COVID-19 it is good to be able to continue to offer our tours. We have of course had cancellations this week, but people have also booked on as they see an outside walking tour as a great thing to do - especially as our audio units mean you can keep the 'social distance' between participants. We have undertaken a full risk assessment and produced new operating policies which ensure we offer some great fun experiences in the city in a safe way and comply with up to the minute guidance from the Government.

I learnt what a Birmingham toy is #its not what you think! I learnt the trains run right underneath centenary square. The trams have over head power points that fold down for out side of the library because it ruins the skyline. I thought it was great, Jonathan & Maria were

Great to have a review from one of the younger vistors on our walks. We do work to ensure that everyone has a great time on tour - as well as our public tours where adults tend to be in abundance we also do school tours for students of all ages. Yes, the name 'Birmingham Toy' is certainly something that you end up understanding by the end. Do come on another tour with us when you can - see the Positively Birmingham walking tour website for details.
