It is always rewarding to go on a guided tour. You get to places you wouldn't have gotten to on your own. The guide was very good and his voice was easy to hear. My English isn't good enough to understand everything, but it was interesting enough to keep going. The guide's knowledge seemed excellent to me - as we said, it's a shame it wasn't in German.

The two hours whizzed by, sad it came to an end - lots fascinating info. It gave us a great insight into some of the treasures of Bristol that we would never of noticed without our amazing guide. Thank you!!

Great tour, despite the damp weather. We booked the tour during my BILs visit. I 've lived in Bristol for a few years and have learned quite a few things that I didn't know about the city.

Informative, interesting and made our visit to Bristol a more complete experience with regards to its history past and present

Excellent!!! Informative, interesting. Loved it!!!
