the tour was amazing! I thought my favourite part would be the doughnut's, don't get me wrong they were amazing, but the tour itself was so interesting and in-depth. we definitely got more doughnuts then either of us expected on the tour and the stop for tea was the perfect palate cleanser. amazing day out and well worth the money.

We loved being able to walk around the city with some direction and learn some facts about the place too along the way. Plus if we saw something interesting or a shop we wanted to check out we could do so without delaying a group tour :) Would reccommend and would do again in another city.

The tour was a great way to start the Christmas season! The local doughnuts were incredible and we really enjoyed the tea sampling experience. Joe (the guide) shared so much knowledge about Brighton history, Christmas time in Brighton and the doughnuts.

Had a fantastic time with our guide Joe. Learning all about the history of the area we were walking through and eating donuts was surprisingly fun. The tea at Bird and Blend was the cherry on the top!

Magnificent and ultra atypical palace. It's a little expensive but it's worth it!
