As expected, to do so many places in a single day, what you get would be just a "flavour" but it was a good "flavour" due to the wonderful timing of Clive, our guide and Moe, our driver!! We were always nearly the first group in the queues and that bought us precious time to see more, to enjoy more, to take more photographs. Lunch at the pub was also well organised. We arrived at Bath at 5pm and the Roman Baths were closed by then so do be prepared for some dissapointment if you wanna enter the place.

This was an excellent tour! I would highly recommend investing the time to be part of this experience. Our tour guide Eugene was extremely knowledgeable about all areas we explored, and gave us the historic significance at each stop, and also pointed out interesting landmarks along the way. Our driver Jermaine was great as well. Our meal was good with plenty of variety for everyone. Definitely take this tour. It was worth it.

The tour was very good! Highly recommend!!! As you need to know, the tour is considered a fast paced tour. So, don’t expect to stay in each place for a long time, but you will have enough time to see everything. Our guide Leon was very knowledgeable and friendly. I really enjoyed and had a good time.

Zozo (our fuide) made it great!! Must have guide for the tour - unbelievable knowledge and kept everyone engaged as it’s a long day but great. All the sights were great and Bath was great town.

Our guide Leon and our bus driver Carlos were amazing. Carlos got us everywhere quickly and safely and Leon was extremely knowledgeable.
