"Jo is a highly knowledgable, very entertaining guide and one of the very best story tellers I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. She really brings history to life and makes it real, like you were there all along. we have just come back from the Hideous History tour and we brought along our 11 year old. He does love his history, but he hung on her every word! the talk was tailored to the group, timed to perfection and thoroughly enjoyable. would definitely recommend these walking tours to everyone. especially locals who are cov born and bread...you will be amazed at the little jewels of history and stories right under your nose! thank you for having us Jo, and we look forward to the next one" ❤

æJo came to give her talk on Mary Ball to the residents where I work. They absolutely lived it and insisted I book her again soon (which I have done) next talk is going to be on the forgotten air raid complete with slide show! Brilliant activity for any care home".

"Jo provided an in-depth enthusiastic tour of Coventry. I was fortunate to be the only person on the tour that day so I had a personalized tour. Jo went out of her way to let me see medieval underground vaults and a watch worker quarters in a crumbling house. All very fun and highly recommended. The destroyed cathedral for me is awe inspiring and worth the visit".
