We have been on similar tours in other cities so wanted to do this tour. We did both tours available. The commentary as we were going round involved listening through earphones to a recording which I felt didn't effectively replace a real tour guide. This...More

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that you did not find our tours worth the price that was paid for them. We alternate live guides and the pre-recorded multi-lingual commentaries aboard buses. This means more people can travel with us to see...More

I was really pleased with the value of this tour along with the knowledge of the tour guides. For the price of one tour you can go on a second so not only do you see the city itself, but also the outskirts and countryside.

Took the city tour first of all. Easy to get on and off and enjoyed the commentary. Took the second tour out of town on the next day and again this was very interesting. Excellent value for money.

Quick way to get overview of Bath, especially if you are here for short time and would like to cover as much as possible.

It is a great chance to go around Bath and have the necessary information about the city, history, architecture. Unfortunately I already walked around Bath all day long when finally the bus caught my eyes. As I still had a little time of parking which...More

This is a good way to see the city, but the recording was not in sync with the stops which is so annoying when you are looking around to see something that is behind you. I prefer an actual tour guide and Bath is a...More
