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!

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.

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

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

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

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!

Two tours in one!
, Aug 2021
Thank you very much for two very enjoyable tours in one! It was lovely to see bits of Bath from the water (including some native wildlife!), and very informative and fun to walk around and get the flavour of Bath from a pedestrian’s point of view - thank you again!

The tour and both ride were both fun and informative, with friendly and knowledgeable hosts! We got great views of the landmarks from the water and having this tour on our first day really helped us to get our bearing in Bath. Definitely recommend for tourists and newcomers to the city!
