The walking tour exceeded our expectations! Our guide, Ellen, a student at the University of Bath, was waiting for us at the meeting point and she made sure to start the tour on time. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic and answered all of our questions. We visited the most important parts of the city and even though my partner and I had already spent a couple of days walking around the city before the day of the tour, we felt that the walk added value to our trip as we learned many new things and discovered hidden city gems. We had added entry to Roman Baths to our tour, so Ellen made sure to take us there on time so that we wouldn't miss our slot. We highly recommend this experience for tourists visiting Bath!

We were guided by Ellen for an hour and a half and then finished with entry to the Roman Baths. You could spend the same time again going through the baths. Ellen was excellent. Great information and enthusiasm.

Ali is a very affable lad who knows his subject well….flexible in his approach to the tour when we fancied spending a little longer somewhere, he tried to accommodate us where he could.
