The tour was amazing, full of history. Our guide (Pete) was fenomenal, he took us through Baths history in a non boring way. What a great way to get to know Bath. It is free, which I was blown away by.

We would've paid for this walking tour, it was brilliant. Got to see all the main highlights of Bath with really good information. I know we could've walked this route on our own but this was so much better. (they won't even accept tips)
