Meet at Bath Quays on the riverside in central Bath. Be greeted by your skipper and guide to start this unique land and water tour of the World Heritage city.

Cruise for 30 minutes along the Avon River, taking in sights such as the Half Penny Bridge, St. John's Church, Bath Abbey, Parade Gardens, Pulteney Bridge, the Weir and the Mill.

The short walking tour will take under an hour, designed to give you an overview of Bath's rich history and orientate you with the city. The tour includes the main sights of the Roman Baths, The Abbey, Guildhall, the Ancient City Wall, the Theatre Royal, and Queens Square.

This tour is ideal for those who are looking for an informed, leisurely overview of the city. The total combined tour is approximately 80/90 minutes in duration and will provide plenty of signposting to allow you to explore the city on your own and make the most effective use of your time.

Being short this is ideal for families with children and there is a kids quiz to help keep them interested on the walking tour.

We have a licenced bar on our small 12 person all weather traditional cruiser, so during this part you can relax with a prosecco or another drink from our hot and cold drinks collection.

Great to see bath from another angle

30 minute fund boat trip - knowledgable guide happy to answer any questions. Brief walking tour around Bath centre but certainly enough to start your own explorations further afield.

Good overview

Had a fun and informative walking tour with Diane, a young Parisien lady who is also an Anglophile. She loves her job and it showed in her commentary and answers to questions. Then a pleasant cruise up the Avon to Poulteney Bridge and Weir.
