Get to see all of the hidden gems Bath has to offer, the only thing is the poor quality of the commentary which kept on cutting out.

Quite a nice look around Bath - but a terrible commentary - I'm sure the bosses haven't listened to it in years. PLEASE UPDATE IT.

I feel bad giving this a 3 but I can't justify 4 as the tour guide audio over the headphones was of such poor quality I couldn't understand a single sentence-and English is my first language! The driver was lovely and journey smooth. The guide...More

This was great value. We did s skyline tour in the morning and a city tour in the afternoon and our tickets were valid for 24 hours. The bus driver negotiated the narrow winding streets with aplomb. The taped commentary in the morning was informative...More

Easy to locate bus-stops in all the most-requested sightseeing spots will save you some shoe leather! Bath's a hilly city, with old stone pavements/sidewalks that aren't a level as they used to be. If you're wanting a quick overview to get your bearings, this is...More
