Our tour set off promptly and we were treated to a two hour discussion on the architectural and social history of the city. We saw many places we wouldn't have seen on our own and... More

We only had a day in Bath and wanted an overview. Sue was knowledgeable, personable and the tour was just right to give us what we needed. She pointed out some unusual spots "behind the scenes" and put things in historical context. I highly recommend this tour.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write the lovely review. I am glad I helped you to make the most of your short time in Bath. In the 2 hours you did see the main attractions as well as some off the beaten track. More

My grandchildren enjoyed the tour and Sue was engaging and friendly. We did the quiz afterwards and Emily remembered loads while Alice enjoyed chatting to Sue and taking the yellow balloon home. We were pleased to be able to contribute to MS at the end.

I am so pleased the children enjoyed my first Bath Tour for Children during Half Term, which was free with donations to Multiple Sclerosis. I hope to repeat this tour during future school holidays. The children were fantastic! Thank you so much for writing a review. More

I did a tour with Moira when I visited Bath alone. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and Moira as a person. She was so in depth with her information and was a wonderful tour guide. I would totally recommend this tour to anyone thinking about going to Bath.

This free walking tour is a must. We had a brilliant guide, Chris. However, why not make a charge and the money raised could be used to restore the facade of The Royal Mineral Hospital. This building looks awful compared to all the other fabulous buildings in Bath. A walking tour is the perfect way to see the city. Also... More

We went on a guided tour of Bath with Moria, very insightful and learnt lots about the City. She also does a Jane Austen specific tour which I would have liked to go on. Definitely make sure you do this tour if it's your first time exploring Bath.

I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the City Highlights tour with Moira. She is a great guide and as you say also a Jane Austen expert. We are both happy to do more specific tours, such as Jane Austen, Foodie, City and Country to cater for people's interests.Thanks for the review. Sue More

Our guide was knowledgeable and well versed in history and architecture (as he was a retired engineer). The town itself, having experienced so many different iterations, cries out for someone to sort it all through. Highly recommended way to really "get" this ancient place.

Reconnected with Sue Swainbank again this year. Having toured Bath with Sue last year we asked Sue if she could take us on a tour of sites outside of Bath. We ended up visiting Bradford on Avon, a small, quaint village about 15 minutes from Bath. Given the small, very walkable size, Bradford on Avon is loaded with historical buildings... More

It was wonderful to meet you again and have the opportunity to show you more of Bath and of the surrounding area. As you did, it is possible to book me for a whole day. During your day we saw the less obvious sights in Bath, drove out to see some fantastic views, ate at a farm restaurant and later... More
