We were on one of your free walks on Sunday with Andy who was very nice and informative. We had just over two hours of learning about the history of Bath which was very good and interesting. This was a very enjoyable experience.

Michael was our guide for this tour and he was excellent! He shared his passion, knowledge and enthusiasm for Bath, bringing the many different periods in Bath's history to life for us. He made us chuckle, he educated us about the architecture and reinforced that what you see may just be an illusion (all those Georgian facades on one side,... More

Best walking tour ever. You learn more in 2 hours with Jeremy our guide than in a week by your self. So much interesting information about such a beautiful city, and it's completely free.

My B&B hostess told me not to miss this - so glad she did! Such knowledge, such enthusiasm - Terry said he had been doing this for 25 years - he kept up a good pace verbally and physically - ended with a suggestion that I go to the Fashion Museum and get a dual ticket for the Roman Baths... More

I have been on many walking tours in many cities, but this is the only free walking tour where it is completely and utterly free with no strings or catches. Most "free" walking tours are run by guides who expect tips based on their performance, and I have no problem with that at all, but these tours are by guides... More

My girlfriend and I took the Bath tour last Wednesday and arrived promptly at 10:30am. There was already a decent size group of people waiting for the guides. Once the guides arrived we were split into two manageable groups, Ken was our guide. Ken was brilliant and clearly has a passion for Bath's long history. We started off with the... More

Joined the free walking tour around Bath today with our guide Richard. Can't recommend this activity highly enough. Several guides made themselves available so that the larger group could be split into smaller groups of around 10 people. The wealth of information was conveyed at the perfect level and in such a captivating manner as to engage the interest of... More

One of the best things in Bath- free tours by well-informed guides. The 2 hour tour near the entrance to Roman Bath and show you the whole city on foot. They talk about the history, answer your questions, guides are always cordial and smiling. Since people of all ages come for this tour, the pace is moderate and not at... More
