I booked this tour as part of a girls' weekend in Bath, and we all had so much fun! Be advised that this is NOT a rowdy pub crawl of the sort you might book through a youth hostel but rather an educational, historic walking tour with an option to sample a drink or two along the way. That was exactly the low-key activity we were looking for to kick off our evening, so we really enjoyed it. Olly was funny, full of interesting facts and extremely laid back -- and we really got a kick out of the pub quiz format. I would absolutely book again if I ever returned to Bath.

This trip is really nice! The guide on our tour was excellent, and the trip around pubs in Bath is highly recommended. Nice quiz and great pubs.

At our annual business conference revisiting Bath, we wanted to ensure we actually got to see Bath rather than just the meeting room at the hotel. After searching for walking tours of Bath I came across The Bath Pub Tour, which sounded like the perfect way to see Bath but with a beverage or two on the way! I initially contacted Olly and discussed our requirements and due to the large numbers, he gave me ideas of what the tour could look like, suggested 2 tour guides and adapted it to suit our needs. He was completely accommodating and planned the tour around us, by changing his usual starting point of the tour to a pub opposite our hotel and ended the tour at the restaurant we had booked for dinner. On the night we had 2 tour guides, Olly and Amy, both of them equally fantastic. They staggered the start time which worked perfectly and both of them were very knowledgeable, entertaining, funny and could keep control of the crowd! The work they had put into it was outstanding, well-structured and most of all made it fun!! Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the quiz, and it was a great way to see Bath and learn the history of the pubs which was truly fascinating! Highly recommend Olly and The Bath Pub tour to anyone, be it individuals or large groups like ours, for a fun evening and great value for money.

My husband and I as well as three college age kids booked Oliver (Olly) for this Pub Tour. We all LOVED it. Olly was such a fun and interesting guide. The tour included a Pub tour of Bath, which means we walked all over Bath while Olly filled us with tons of interesting information on the history of pubs in BATH. We even stopped into one pub for a nice sample of local brew. Olly kept us on our toes with a quiz game, in which we were very competitive with each other. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants an interesting take on Bath from the perspective of its past and current pubs.

A very interesting and fun evening. A lovely balance between an evening of culture and socialising. The quiz element is light-hearted and engaging. I will definitely be going along with more friends in the future.
