Joined the walking tour of Bath during a weekend break. Our guide, Roy , was excellent. Provided a lot of history of Bath as well as pointing out points of interest. Would highly recommend this free walking tour on a visit to this lovely city.

We joined one of these tours last week. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk because the tour guide, Alan, was a fountain of interesting information, very knowledgable and even provided some supplementary pictures and other material. A big thank you to Alan and the other guides.

Well done Bath for offering this free activity. Other cities would do well to replicate what you do. We had a two and a half hour gentle stroll around Bath with our guide Austen who certainly knew his stuff and brought the history to life....More

Two hours of free, well-informed and enjoyable tour of the city including all the places you would expect to see. Really knowledgeable and entertaining and a great way to start a weekend of sightseeing. The passion the guides have for this beautiful city is joyful.

A wonderful (free) walking tour with knowledgeable & entertaining guides. The full tour lasts for 2 hours but you can join or leave at any time. The tour goes at a leisurely pace but Bath is rather hilly so may not be suitable for everyone.

Joined the free walking tour today. Richard our guide was excellent, he was knowledgeable and obviously passionate about Bath. Saw the main sites and all for free. Would love to see this happening in other cities. Thank you.

They didn't stop near anywhere to sit down. It is two hours of gentle walking but quite a lot of standing and listening too. A couple carrying a baby had to step out half way through - you can leave the tour at any point... More
