Bath Abbey , Bath BA1 1LT, UK

The meeting point is by the main doors to Bath Abbey (by the entrance to Roman Baths).

This activity will end right where it started.
Book your preferred tour option, and meet your guide in central Bath. Then, set off to explore on foot, learning about the UNESCO-listed city and its architecture on route.

Founded by the Romans as a thermal spa and littered with classical treasures, Bath flourished in the 18th century with the development of its honey-stoned, Georgian architecture.

Admire Pulteney Bridge and Gothic Bath Abbey, the coronation site of England’s first king in 973, and then continue to Bath’s showpiece: the Roman Baths.

Pay the entrance fee (depending on option selected) and tour the stunning, column-lined Great Bath and changing rooms, hot pools, and other facilities, all once used for relaxation and socializing by ancient Romans.

See the hot springs, and view the main artifacts in the museum collections, including the famous Minerva’s Head and inscribed stone tablets.

Next, delve into the historical town center to admire its Georgian architecture. See the Pump Rooms and Upper Assembly Rooms, and walk to the world-famous Royal Crescent. Drink in the sumptuous sweep of this 18th-century terrace, and admire the Circus, a circular-shaped terrace formed from curving segments.

After learning about these architectural masterpieces, your tour finishes in the city center.

The Bath City walking part of our tour was cancelled as the guide tested positive for Covid . We were disappointed. Found this out on the morning of the tour. Still went to Roman Baths. Excellent and much more to learn about at that site than I had expected.

I’m not sure if it was the structure of the tour itself or the tour guide but really didn’t learn much on the tour. I thought the tour guide was very sweet but I left the experience not really feeling like it was a good use of time. I also hear that the city of Bath gives free tours.

I just buy tickets from your company but was mistake because when I buy tickets your page was change date and I was there in Bath last Sunday and your tickets was for Wednesday 2pm so I ask you about refund but you don’t want to pay me back so I’m totally not happy with your company. I’m working really hard and paying you £80 for nothing. This money means to me a lot so definitely can’t give you good point for this. So people be carful when you buy tickets because this company give you Sing conditions where is no REFUND.

Good, but awkward ending.

The travel guide (Rachel) was great, and it was her first official tour. You could tell the company trains its people well; Rachel did a fantastic job. She was knowledgeable about the city and various landmarks, and was willing to answer any questions. My only issue with the tour itself was how it ended: the last official stop on the tour was the Royal Crescent. When done there, we were told the tour was over and she would lead us back to the starting mark for those of us who also purchased tickets to the Roman Baths (definitely recommend adding - it was fabulous!) as the entrance was right next to our starting location. While our guide was still friendly and willing to carry on a conversation, there was no more tidbits or interesting buildings pointed out along the way, it felt like we were just a big group tromping through the city together. I don't fault Rachel for this, but think the tour could be rearranged, or maybe something added so it doesn't feel so awkward (i.e. "hey this is the end, but let's still walk together for another 10 minutes while I escort you back to the rendezvous point). Overall, a great tour of city and enjoyed learning more about Bath that I doubt I could have learned on my own.
