What people are saying about Bath

Great day trip considering we couldn't drive there or know exactly what we've known after having experienced the expert knowledge of Ana Marie and Christoph. Our driver was superb, fast, but careful driver. He is friendly and gave us bottled waters. Our group was mostly from USA and only waited for 2 people after the meeting time was up for about 10 minutes because they got lost, which is understandable. Our guide Ana Marie was very good at what she does and not too talkative to be annoying, which was really good. She gave us tips and heads up about time constraints which is understandable. Dosed off when she talks because she spoke so softly. Overall experience seeing these historic sites is unforgettable. The fall foliage along the drive thru Cotswolds was superb, everything has its own charm. The Thai food in Bath (Thai Balcony) was the best thai I've had in my travel experience. Sweet buns in Bath must-try. Please tip your driver and guide when you can!

Ghost tour was 100% worth it. Not just a ghost tour, the historic information was brilliant. Mrs Cruncher who guided us was so entertaining. The paranormal interactive experience at the end was amazing. Me and my boyfriend are in our 20’s and wasn’t sure how good it would be, but it was brilliant. we also had recommendations for pubs at the end. 10/10

We did the tour with just two of us and a guide - Mrs Cruncher - and it was excellent. A great way to see the city and we learned all about its history as well as all of the grim stuff from the ghost tour part Was lots of fun and would highly recommend it.

Clear instructions on where to meet and guide made herself known to us. Really interesting, fun and interactive experience. Guide was really engaging and funny. Good use of props ! (You'll have to go on trip to find out more !!)

Our guide was wonderful and kept us engaged throughout the tour. She was informative, engaging, funny and very theatrical. We all loved it and made a perfect ‘work do’ very special . Thank you
