Absolutely great! Lead by extremely professional and knowledgeable volunteers. Definitely do this and the Roman Baths on a day in Bath. It is also completely free -- they won't even accept tips!

It's free and it's friendly, welcoming and professional. What a great way to be introduced to Bath and to understand the highlights of this compact, historical city. A two hour investment with unlimited dividends.
