Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Thank you Ed for a fun, informative and most importantly delicious tour of bath. We did the guilty pleasures tour as a couple, we have recently moved to bath and wanted to get to know the city a bit more and find some great places to eat and take friends too.

I really enjoyed the mix of sweet and savoury. As bath centre is quite small there was normally a street or two between each destination with a bit of information around some of the historical buildings and statues on the way. We stopped at 7 different eateries and each one was great. Ed was very knowledgeable, knew the owners and their stories and clearly has lived the food scene in bath his whole life. He gave a number of recommendations for other things like brunch, coffee or seafood in the city.

We both really enjoyed the afternoon. Thank you and would recommend

This was a birthday treat for my daughter aged 20 - and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.
Sam our guide was knowledgeable about the architecture of Bath, its history and all the places we visited.
All of the cafe owners, and farmers on their market stalls were enthusiastic and happy to tell us all about themselves. They were passionate about keeping everything ‘local’ and clearly cared deeply about their animals and crops.
This was a vegetarian food tour for my daughter, and we were both overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of everything we were offered.
I would recommend this tour to everyone - the walking was easy enough (even for Bath!) It’s a great way to spend a few hours and get to know a city.

Wonderful food tour with Sam & her assistant, Ed(?). We are traveling with friends from US & all agreed & liked the variety of foods we tasted during our tour. We Loved the food hall/ Farmers Mkt & the generosity of samples given. We decided to do this Savouring Bath tour from the reviews read before coming & it did not disappoint by any means! Highly recommend this tour!

We really enjoyed all the different food experiences offered during the tour. Ed was an excellent guide and most of the businesses had an owner/employee stop by and chat with us about their specialty. We did this on our third day in Bath and had walked by some of these places without knowing the history or delicious food inside.

Ed was a great guide and really brought Bath and its culinary delights to life. Not only did he demonstrate in-depth knowledge of the places we visited, but he was also able to talk in detail about others places we'd heard of and wanted to know more about. Had a great time and tasted some great food!

We booked on the public Local Flavours tour as part of my partner's 70th birthday celebrations.

Having never been on anything like this we didn't know what to expect. However, Mike gave us a fantastic tour around many of the foodie places in Bath, and in particular in the Market. Everyone was very welcoming and very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their products. The samples were very tasty. The places visited are independents with only up to 3 outlets.

The 2 hightlights were Lulu coffee (where the young barista was so very knowledgeable about coffee, who knew there were qualifications in brewing coffee.....) and Swoon Gelato - so thick, creamy and tasty.

An added bonus for us what because we were a party of 4 we ending up with a private tour, as the maximum on the tour is 6.

All in all it was a fantastic morning and I can't recommend it enough.

Our very pleasant guide was extremely knowledgeable and shared many fascinating facts and myths about the history of Bath which he did in an engaging manner. He introduced us to a number of small authentic food outlets and specialist tea and coffee purist cafes where we learned a wealth of interesting facts. We thoroughly recommend this most enjoyable tour.

Ed was a brilliant guide with many historical as well as fun food facts to share. Extremely personalized and for exactly what we hoped for…. Small group, informational guide, and magnificent food. Our food limitations were honored completely and yet we learned much about things outside our palate. Great meeting place and informative business owners who spent loads of time answering questions and offering samples. 10/10!

Our tour guide was Ed and he was absolutely fantastic! Right from the start he made us feel really comfortable and exuded enthusiasm about local history and culture. We were lucky enough to be the only two people on the tour, which made it feel all the more special. We were thoroughly treated throughout and would recommend the tour to anyone visiting Bath.

We had the lovely Ed who took us around the food heroes tour. He was very knowledgeable not just about food, but the history of bath and we thoroughly enjoyed this tour! The venues were a good mix of food and drink, old and new and was such a fun and interesting way to discover a city - I would highly recommend!!
