The fact that it was free was a huge plus when you are travelling with a family. Bath is a beautiful place and Jeff... More

2 / 2.5 hour tour of all the main sights of central Bath. Our tour guide also took us by some less well known sites that even most Bath residents most likely dont know about, such as the old east gate. Interesting for both residents and visitors. The guides are all volunteers, and it is obvious that they are doing... More

We had a really interesting, informative and entertaining walking tour with Paul today. It was about two and a half hours and all for free - he wouldn't accept tips. Highly recommended
