Having done a little research on the interweb we came across Bad of Bath which looked just the ticket for us.
This was a very short notice booking but we were very pleased that we were able to secure a spot at 10 am on the day that we were due to leave - perfect!
Booking online was easy in the extreme and confirmation was provided almost immediately - that's one box ticked.
We met with Simon the guide at the allotted time and at the allotted place. Another couple were booked too and they arrived shortly. Introductions and pleasantries exchanged all round we left on tour.
This was exactly the sort of tour that we were after, as was written on the tin, although light-hearted it was fact filled and fun all revolving around the plentiful goings on of the Georgian period, covering all from stupidly rich (greedy and corrupt) to desperately poor (and just as corrupt but probably for a different reason) .....
Throughout, Simon was engaging and very pleasant. Apparently, he'd even arranged the glorious sunshine at no charge! Sadly the tour, although just over 90 mins was over too soon - I could've easily done another hour .
We'll probably book again when we next travel to Bath as I'm certain to have forgotten most of the facts anyway.
Would strongly recommend this tour as extremely enjoyable and very good value.
