Additional Info

Confirmation will be received at time of booking

This website requires 48 hours notice to book this tour as a private group. In reality, we may sometimes be available at shorter notice, if you request viator to contact us. However, in all cases, the reason why we require so much advance notice is because unlike our other tours offered here, the Shakespeare street theatre tour requires three actor guides to deliver the tour, so we may also have to cancel and refund you for bookings, if it turns out that all of us are not available, when you wish to book. This is because it's much harder to tie down all three of us on any date we advertise availability. Essentially, this tour is intended to be booked with significant advance notice but if we can provide tickets at short notice, we will do so or refund you.
