This was an excellent two hour tour, jam packed with information. A great mixture of history and quirky trivia. Probably the best tour of its kind I have been on.

... this is fantastic, I cannot rate it high enough. The tour guide was exceptional, his knowledge was outstanding not only of the contents of the tour but also of all things Bristol. With a good voice, presence and manner, not to mention some humour it really is the Ultimate in tours. Thank you.

It was a magical tour about the history of Bristol, pirates, first navigators and artists, of course. You can't miss Bristol's artistic flavour on the streets, walls and train stations. The stories about the building of the Cathedral and harbour, and the eighteenth-century slavery are fascinating. Highly recommend taking the tour.
