We had a brilliant experience with the City Boat Trip and Walking Tour very welcoming and accommodating. The trip on the boat was lovely, Paul and his team are very informative and all the highlights that can be seen from the boat were pointed out to us, it was great to hear the stories and the history of the river and have all our questions answered. The selection of beverages available on board were also impressive! Annabelle who led the walking tour was fantastic she had a wealth of historical knowledge of the area and made it fun for all ages from 8 to 65. Was great to see the parts of the City that we wouldn't have necessarily seen if we had walked around ourselves. My son loved the quiz and the medal at the end. We have learned so much from this trip which will stay with us. We Would all highly recommend this as an activity when visiting Bath as a must do. Great value for money and added to the 'special' feeling of the City. Thank you.

Our tour guide was Bruce and he was excellent! Very informative and entertaining. We absolutely loved getting to visit all 3 locations and will definitely be going back to visit them individually. We had a great day!

It was an excellent and informative trip. Kudos to our guide, Bruce, for livening things up during his sharing, and his clear instructions on the meeting time and places so that we do not get lost.

This was a great experience. I went with my friend and since it was a lovely sunny day the visit was worth it.

It was an amazing experience. The guides were really friendly and funny! You should definitely book it
