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

We spent a wonderful morning with Caroline our guide showing us round the beautiful city of Bath. She was extremely knowledgeable and made the stories of this fascinating area come to life. We had a lot of laughs, especially when drinking the special Bath water and getting caught up with the Jane Austen Guinness World Record attempt and spent a... More

I found Sue's walk recommended on the Bath website and contacted her fairly late in the evening on Sunday night. She immediately accepted to walk us around the city the next day. She gave my husband, my daughter and I a lovely guided tour of gorgeous Bath. The tour lasted for 2 hours and since we had only a day... More

Thank you for the great review. It was a real pleasure to guide you and also to discuss History and Literature. It was wonderful that you already knew Jane Austen's books and I was able to show you the city she knew. More

My husband and I took Sue's Bath City Highlights walk in July and had a wonderful time. Sue is a great storyteller and sets the perfect pace for exploring this fascinating city. She tailored her tour to fit our interests, answered all our questions, and was a lot of fun. We learned a lot, too! She also had great suggestions... More

This is a definite must! Very interesting and informative and our guide Val was a font of knowledge. We have been to Bath before, but only wandered and saw some sights, the tour gives you a deeper insight into the history of Bath. Brilliant!

During our two week visit to England we planned a three night stay in bath and wanted to make the most of our time there. We decided that a walking tour on our first day would afford us the opportunity to get a feel for the town and then determine which points of interest we wanted to go back and... More

We were celebrating a friends 50th birthday in bath. We had a great time on a 2 hour trip around bath. Dickon was a superb guide. Informative, a mine of information and funny. He took command of the tour and ran a little over time he was so keen to share his knowledge both factual and 'word of moth' passed... More

Sue, thanks for taking us on a tour of your city and for sharing your local knowledge. We had travelled down on the Northern Belle from Manchester and to spend a couple of hours on your tour was an excellent way of walking off the excesses of the journey down. You are clearly passionate about your city and eager to... More
