Thoroughly enjoyed the tour round a bath with our guide Michael. Friendly and knowledgable. Didn't feel like two hours. Was interesting to have things that you see everyday explained to you. Would thoroughly recommend to visitors and locals. Thank you

This is a review of the FREE Mayors guides. Not part of the professional City of Bath Guides providing tours of Bath where fees are payable be it walking , car or coach. I hope this is clear.
