Short and sweet family break
, Aug. 2022
Took my daughter out for a day and where else if not to the fantastic Bath, boat trip and team was amazing- thank you :)
Nice Bath tour
, Jul. 2022
Nice cool river boat ride on a hot day. With an informative walking tour. The staff were all excellent and very welcoming.
Cracking start to a weekend in Bath
, Jul. 2022
We booked this trip as our first activity for our weekend in Bath and it didn’t disappoint- in fact it set us up for our stay. The experience began with a gentle, relaxing 30 minute river cruise with a cocktail in hand, listening to our guide share knowledge of what we were passing. After disembarking we were met by a second guide - Ivan- who took us through the streets of Bath sharing historical facts while helping to navigate our way - this proved super useful when exploring the rest of the weekend. Ivan was particularly knowledgeable and enthusiastic and was able to shape the tour to our group.
Fun on foot and by river.
, Jul. 2022
Seeing Bath from both perspectives with both Billie and Charlotte was a lot of fun. Both were unique in their styles but equally knowledgeable and enjoyable.
Better to do it on the first day
, Jun. 2022
A quick tour to see the town and get some ideas for what to do for the next few days. Oli, the tour guide of the walking tour, speaks loud and clearly enough, always choosing a suitable place to stop for the explanation. The boat tour was short, which was mainly to see the Pulteney Bridge. Overall, the tour was good and worth doing.
Wonderful experience
, Jun. 2022
Very informative and wonderful experience. Enjoyed the tour ver much. The guides are friendly. Billy is a entertaining guide. Ollie is very helpful with the informations.
Fun & informative

Lovely trip on the water. Friendly crew. Easy breezy! Only complaint is the cost of a bottle of M & S 500ml water £2.50 is a tad steep!
Go for it

Lovely tour. Really enjoyed the boat trip, the guides on the boat were fantastic, making the tour worthwhile! The walking tour which was also part of the trip we booked, was also good. Highly recommend the tour.

Paul and Billy our very knowledgeable guides made the trip interesting and fun. Then take a walking tour of Bath with a local guide ,ours was Katie superb tour her clear and informative guide was great. See thing you would probably miss if you walked around on your own. Total tour length 80 minutes and excellent value for money. Thank you to all concerned. Sheila & Wally Link

Excellent value
, May 2022
The boat trip was very informative and scenic and the hosts were knowledgeable friendly and helpful. The walking guide was similarly very friendly and informative. This was ideal for a tourist guide to all the main parts and brief historic facts and best locations to visit and we would have not found ourselves. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone and was good value for money.

Relaxing ride along the river and a walk full of interesting stuff. Both guides were easy to talk to, helpful and cheerful. Lovely way to spend an afternoon.
Nice tour!

Paul and Ivan on the boat were very personable and were interesting. Billie on the walking tour was Lovely and very informative. Thanks
Fantastic tour and guides.
, Oct. 2021
The boat trip was very insightful and the lady who was guiding the tour was very lovely and informative. We then had the walking tour and the guide Ivo was very friendly, he was extremely informative and really gave us a lot of details. He was a lovely young man and would recommend this tour and both of those guides to future tourists. Regrettably we were unable to offer gratuities as we didn’t have any cash on us. Hopefully we will see them on our next trip to Bath. Fernandes family.
Very informative, very entertaining
, Sep. 2021
billie was a lovely guide, friendly, informative, interesting, knowledgeable and very entertaining. Having misread the info we ended up waiting to meet at the wrong place, completely my fault. The owner met us and took us to catch up with the tour. Really outstanding service
Don’t do it
, Sep. 2021
This was not worth the time or money. I would not suggest or do this tour again! The guy only had one ticket, although my confirmation said for two adults, which is what I paid for.
Great trip
, Sep. 2021
Great boat trip and walking tour. Very knowledgeable guides. Worth doing for a quick insight into Bath especially if you’re only there for a night or two!
Brilliant Trip
, Sep. 2021
