Good fun for adults, I would suggest that this activity is not for children as it's a bit dry. More architecture and history, unless of course your children are into that! But it was good fun, the clues are accurate and you see parts of the city you would never even think to look! For a new visitor this was great. We stopped for lunch halfway and popped in a few shops on our way and the whole thing took a little over 3 hours. Very good value for money and a good way to explore the city for a new visitor. I would recommend it for couples or small groups.

We arrived in Bath without much planning and to spend only a few hours. Our guide Victoria allowed us to understand the history of the city in a clear and entertaining way and took us to emblematic areas of Bath that we would not have discovered on our own. A 10!!

Many thanks to Tony - our guide around Bath yesterday afternoon! A fascinating couple of hours, full of history and architectural interest. We gained such insight into this lovely city centre without going very far - worth every penny!

Really fun experience. Very interesting tour of Bath around places you may not have actually visited with out this adventure. The clues are fun and get the mind working lol Would totally recommend
