Having never been on a ghost walking tour before we did not know what to expect. We had 'Jim Reaper' as our tour guide - the spritely 67 year old, undertaker & friend of the dead. He kept us fully entertained for the full two hours. Jim is a real character who certainly knows his way around Bath and all the (spooky) history it has to offer. It rained for the whole two hours so my advice would be to wrap up warm and take hand warmers for your pockets - don't let the weather forecast put you off, just dress accordingly. Thanks again Jim, we shall always try and include a ghost walking tour with every holiday moving forward because of you 😀 ps....we did actually see some very spooky stuff when we looked back at our pictures!!!

Absolutely loved my guide - Miss S something ( I can’t remember her name, an older lady with a lovely English accent who did the Saturday night tour on Saturday 30th March in Bath). The tour was filled with amazing stories and history and a few paranormal tales. Well worth doing!!

The Bath Ghost tour was exceptional. I’ve taken many ghost tours around the world, and this is a crowing jewel. While in Bath, I had a ticket waiting at Stonehenge. I did not go, as a ticket with transportation was 700 pounds. No other venue could accommodate me.

Bath is absolutely a place I can recommend - and get hold of Jamie to show you around. Jamie has great knowledge and tonnes of humor🤣 We enjoyed two hours with Jamie and not even the rain could spoil the trip🙏

This was a fabulous tour interactive and fun. Your guide was brilliant
