James is a terrific guide. The tour, including pub stop, lasted for around 3 hours and was very interesting from start to finish. My son, who is a student at Bath University, learnt a lot about his new 'home' city. Thanks James.

Our tour guide James grew up and lives in Bath. His love for history and travel was apparent from the start. There’s a lot of walking but we didn’t mind because there was so much to see and learn about Bath.
