Even in the pouring rain and one the worst thunderstorms in many years, this was quite fun and a different experience alltogether. Highly recommended to see Bath in a different light and with a twist. Even if you dont enjoy slapstick humour and brave attempts at magic tricks

This tour makes a change from the usual historical tour of Bath. There was quite a bit of audience participation, the funniest bit was the cyclist (can't say any more, coz it'll spoil it). A welcome change really.

This looked like fun, and for only £8 we thought it was worth an hour or so of our time. It is in no way a cultural tour, and this is made quite clear before parting with any cash. We laughed loads and had a good post dinner walk at the same time. I think there will be more than... More

Stewart was a highlight and I liked the walk. In a way I would have preferred to explore more of Bath (we stayed very central) but I already knew in advance that this is NOT a historical walking tour of Bath. More a walk around some streets with a man in purple who's pretty funny. Truly bizarre and recommended.

I had seen the start of the tour from a nearby pub on previous visits and thought it worth a go. I was not disappointed. The guide worked the audience brilliantly and was really entertaining. Don't expect a cultural guide to the history of Bath, just a great night which will make you laugh( and occasionally groan!)

This highly recommended tour failed to meet expectations. The attempts at humour were contrived, lame, predictable and not at all funny. The first 20 minutes was spent by the one man collecting money from each person . Where was the support team , or pre paid tickets at the bar.? Once underway we kept waiting for something unexpected, some comedy... More

Having read the reviews, I found this tour very disappointing. I can only assume there's more than one guide, and that some are better than others.

We went on this tour after reading all the great reviews. We really enjoyed it. Not too much walking - no history - basically making fun of some of the silly things in Bath plus magic tricks along the way. We also got a discount when we ate at the pub where tour starts. It's a great way to spend... More

Thought this sounded interesting as I enjoy stand up comedy, started off slow..why not make sure everyone buys their ticket at the bar first instead of individually going round 70+ people? but did pick up. It all seemed very scripted and I would have liked to have seen more interaction with audience and passers by other than the stereotypical comments.... More

Silly gags which may be funny to children or tourists who don't really understand and laugh politely. Most of the audience whilst walking didn't understand what the "joke" was. A couple of entertaining bits in two hours. I even waited to the very end, incase it got better. It didn't. It was that bad the guide offered money back.......
