Very good 2 hour tour covering the history and highlights of Bristol. Our tour guide Robert was very knowledgeable and made it interesting. Wear good shoes as there are lots of cobbles.

Robert Collin was a very friendly guide with extensive knowledge on the history of Bristol, and England in general. Within the two-hour walk, we were able to visit a lot of the historical highlights of Bristol, but without having to cover a large distance.
