Do not visit Bath without spending time with Sue. Our family of six including 16, 15, 13 and 11 year olds spent the most wonderful afternoon with Sue on a private walking tour around Bath. Sue has vast knowledge and genuine passion for this gorgeous city and its history. She knows how to keep teens interested and it was wonderful... More

The Free Walking Tour of Bath is provided by volunteers appointed by the mayor of Bath city, and it would be a great value even if they charged $20! It's a 2 hour walk through the historic streets and sights of Bath, the guides are very knowledgeable and fun. The walk provides orientation and historical context that makes any visit... More

Absolutely great! Lead by extremely professional and knowledgeable volunteers. Definitely do this and the Roman Baths on a day in Bath. It is also completely free -- they won't even accept tips!

Our stroll with Sue proved perfect way to get a powerful feel for this beautiful, complex city. We had less than a day there, and limited budget. Sue is very obviously a lovely person, has great breadth and depth of knowledge, didn't talk at us. Her advice helped us make the best of the rest of our brief time in... More

We had a great 2 hour walking tour with Sue on April 18. She was highly knowledgeable and showed us all the highlights of this incredibly beautiful city. We only had one day in Bath and were very glad we picked this way to see the sites.

We found Sue from a walking guide search which led us to www.bathtours.org.uk. A quick email led to everything falling into place with excellent pre-tour communication, simple meeting arrangements and a punctual start to a fantastic tour. Somehow we had never been to Bath before and wanted to see all the highlights in the short space of time allowed on... More

Had a super walk around the centre of Bath last weekend with our guide Sue. She showed us the key Georgian developments that Bath is famous for. Fantastic knowledge of the city's history mixed with snippets about the rich and famous, both past and present! Fiona
