Phoebe our guide had great local knowledge. If you only have limited time in Bath this 50 minute tour is ideal.

Great way to learn a bit about Bath
Great tour of the city to learn about the history of the streets , buildings and see the first round street in England. Great way to start your exploring.

Inaudible with mask on - such a shame
Our guide seemed informed and was interesting when we could hear him. Sadly the transparent full length face mask he was wearing muffled his speaking and so we only caught about a third it - despite telling him early on that this was a problem. Not sure if this was because it was the first busy day post-Covid reopening but this needs to be rethought otherwise there’s no point. Guides for other companies weren’t wearing masks and we could hear them better. It’s a shame for the guide and this company but I really wish we had gone elsewhere :(

Thanks for your feedback, we are sorry. Other reputable organisations in Bath such as the Mayors Tour Guides, do wear masks or visors in line with the current guidance for tour guiding. In our opinion visors have very little impact on projection of sound while being an effective safety measure. The guide has a loud voice and we will try and make things better while keeping visitors and staff safe.

Interesting tour
Aug 2020 • Couples
Tour guide was very informative of the history of bath. We really enjoyed seeing all the builds and architecture. However the tour was rushed and as I’m visually impaired I struggled to keep up due to the uneven pavement and I felt like I kept losing the group. In future if they have tours close together they need to ensure staff don’t need to rush customers around.

So glad you enjoyed the tour! Our tours are well spread apart but we do have a lot of amazing attractions to see on our short walking tours. Our guide would have been more than happy to slow down though, if you had mentioned this to her.

The perfect length and way to acclimate to Bath. Lots of fun stories. It covered most of the city, excepting the Royal Crescent and Pulteney Bridge. Nola, our guide, was informative and funny.

Informative and interesting
Oct 2019
This walk may only be 50 minutes long but it gives a good overview to the city of Bath. Starting at the Avon Street car park, the guide, a lovely lady named Georgina, took us through main streets and some back streets of the city, pointing out things my husband and I had missed on our walk through the city and filling us in on some things we had been curious about.
Always the best way to see a city and for only £7 per person this was value for money and a tour I would recommend.
