    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!

    An absolute must if you visit Bath. Our guy Ellen was simply SUPERB in the way she guided us all around and the enthusiasm that she showed throughout the tour blew us away. A brilliant job done, it was interesting to hear other guides talking in a somewhat boring way and we both agreed that we were lucky to have had Ellen. We then undertook the tour of the bath complex which was simply amazing. Use the hand held audio guides for the best experience.

    Easy to find guide who was knowledgable interesting and good humoured. The walk was varied and took in most of the interesting places. It took a full 90 minutes to get back to the start. This was perfect timing for the entry to the Roman Baths. This was an excellent experience helped by the electronic guides.
