“Private Tour of Bath”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

I found Trevor on the Bath tourism website. We were a group of architects and engineers and we wanted a private tour that gave us a feel for the town character and a history of the city. Like some of the reviewers we wanted a guide who would give us a real understanding of the history and development of the city, rather than dressing up in costumes.

Trevor created a tour for us based on exactly our needs, and we had quite a few emails to and fro beforehand as he wanted to be sure we had a tour that was exactly what we wanted. He even gave some good recommendations on where we should go for dinner the night before (he is a restaurant critic in his spare time).

Trevor also took us to quite a few areas of the city that seemed much less visited, and gave a good feel for the place away from other tourists.

Trevor met us at our hotel and took us back afterwards. Everyone in the group was really pleased. We were all entertained and also came away feeling like we understood the city a bit more.

“Trevor Jones made our tour of the Cotswold's!”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Trevor Jones was such a fantastic tour guide for our group, so knowledgeable, personable, interesting and delightful in every way!! He planned a wonderful and varied itinerary for our group and it was evident that he loved being able to show the Cotswold's to visitors so that they came away with a "love" for the region and that is exactly how each of us felt after our 5 days with Trevor. We were a group with many questions and he never tired from answering our many questions. His knowledge of the history, architecture, historic homes and gardens was all very impressive. We were a group that especially enjoyed the lovely gardens even in the rain. Trevor always had the very best restaurant suggestions as well and I "know" we had the very best fish and chips in all of England at one of the pubs he suggested. If you are looking for an extraordinary guide in the Cotswold's, Trevor is your man! I recommend him highly and you will feel you have a friend in the Cotswold's after you spend time letting him guide and teach you about this lovely part of England. Hope to go back!

“Visitors from Canada”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We met Trevor for a leisurely day of walking and touring Bath. Trevor was well prepared and provided us with lots of historic information and insight into the architecture and construction in the area. It was a very pleasant day - very casual. We walked and chatted and learned so much about Bath and the surrounding area. Through this experience, we gained valuable insights into British history and custom. The canal system was interesting and the visit to Cotswolds was beautiful. Trevor recommended lunch in a local French restaurant which was a great culinary delight! The tour that Trevor provided to us was a highlight of our first trip to England. We highly recommended Trevor as a tour guide. This was an experience well worth our time!

“Enriching and Informative - This Guy Knows His Stuff”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

I found Trevor on the Bath tourism website. I was put in charge by an architecture group I'm involved with of organizing a walking tour for a group of about 30 architects. Being architects and building industry professionals, we were very keen to find someone who could actually tell us about the architecture of Bath in a knowledgeable way, rather than the canned, cheesy walking tours led by people in costumes.

Trevor worked with us and created a custom tour that suited our needs and time frame. He even suggested local places to get coffee and food for the group along our tour route that we were able to arrange ahead of time.

As a retired Chartered Surveyor who worked for years in Bath and the surrounding areas, he has in incredible depth of knowledge about the local architecture, it's history, and local construction methods. It was exactly what we were looking for and the group was very pleased. He kept us engaged the entire time and fielded all sorts of questions. A very accommodating and pleasant tour guide.

Highly recommended.
