  • Chance to hear secret stories about Bath that you might not uncover alone
  • Tour combines famous sights with insights into notorious crimes
  • No getting lost—explore the city on foot with a guide to navigate

Fabulous! Completely gripping and informative tour. Our tour guide was friendly, lively, extremely knowledgeable, interactive and generally an all round Nice guy. The time just flew by yet we fit so much in. We won't spoil it for others but be prepared for some of the most amazing sights and interesting information about the beautiful City that is Bath. We cannot thank you enough for your knowledge and recommendations for local eateries. Many thanks The King/Clements group.

It was a great tour and included all about things in Bath that you want to hear rather than all the standard tourist bits. Simon was very knowledgeable and fun for everyone, clarifying things for the kids if they were not sure.
