Cannot recommend highly enough, if you are staying in the area it is a must do.

My guide Deborah lives overlooking the garrison and knew so much about the area from way back when the soldiers lived in tents on the now race course right up until todays date. Most knowledgeable and she made the stories come to life, making what might have been boring history most interesting. Nice touch having the bag with water and some snacks to keep you going. Even though there was just the two of us, to make this a covid secure tour she used a microphone and I had an audio receiver,. Cannot recommend highly enough, if you are staying in the area it is a must do.

GOING BACK TO THE DISTANT PAST & CELEBRATING PRESENT DAY INDEPENDENCE

We had passed this area several times before and assumed it was just about horse racing. It is actually part & parcel of British military history as well as the existence of Roundheads and Royalists and why there was the emigration to this colony as it was then.. History from a knowledgeable Guide. Cromwell may not have come here but others did. We toured the Garrison area and ended up in the Museum. Water and snacks, stops in the shade by our considerate Guide,made this a rather enjoyable Tour.

Great Historic Tour

My tour guide was new and in training and he did an excellent job. This tour is packed full of information and took about 2.5 hours. I am really glad I chose this tour. You even get a little snack pack and a bottle of water in a draw string backpack. You can choose to listen on headphones or listen to your guide. I chose to listen to my guide.
