    George was a wonderful guide! We were on the last leg of a 10-day journey around England and went on a guided walking tour nearly every day - George was the best guide we had the whole trip! He was informative and enthusiastic without being overbearing with endless facts - the stories and histories he shared were fascinating! And he really did tell it like a story. Highly recommend this tour!

    This was a great tour, our guide was interesting and very knowledgeable. The only problem we had was trying to get to the meeting point on time, we drove into the city but didn’t allow ourselves enough time for traffic, then to find a parkade for the car, and then didn’t have the app to pay for it. Had to run down to the meeting point then panicked when we couldn’t find him. We had forgotten that the tour was being facilitated by a third party so nearly missed out. Thankfully our guide found us! We were in a small group of about 6 so it was easy to stay together and hear everything our guide was saying. It felt incredible to walk all around the baths. Need to wear comfortable shoes and watch your step!

    This is a good introductory tour that helped us with general orientation. After the tour we were better able to navigate around Bath without wasting our time on places we we're not interested in. Rachel was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable and enthusiastic with good background stories about the characters who have shaped Bath.
