Thank you to Fred for the fantastic walking tour around Bath!! The tour was extremely interesting and informative and Fred was a friendly, enthusiastic guide with lots of knowledge and facts to share! Despite the weather it was an amazing tour that we all enjoyed! Would highly recommend this tour as a great way to explore and get to know Bath!

Peter the guide and the driver (forget his name) were both excellent! Peter kept cracking jokes and shared a lot of knowledge with us, even during the bus ride to Stonehenge. We went on other tours later and it wasn’t the same without Peter as our guide.

Our bus driver Dan and tour guide Amanda were great! We enjoyed spending the day with them and they did a great job explaining everything along the way!!

Our guide Ben is an amazing guide and provide very detailed information regarding all attractions and took us on a nice tour.

Ben was great, knowledgable with great sense of humour. Highly recommended
