Interested in learning more about the area than reading or googling could have yielded, my daughter and I decided to tour the Avebury circle with Daniel, of Bath Insider Tours. In conferring with him, we decided to add some nearby landmarks, including interesting archeological sites, such as an ancient multi-inhabited tomb, unique mound, and an iconic chalk horse - fascinating places we never would have known to visit on our own. We enjoyed every minute. Our experience was greatly enriched by Daniel's local knowledge. Get Outlook for Android

Daniel is an excellent guide, being a local, and took us on a very interesting, informative and enjoyable tour of bath as well as a fun and informative visit to a bird of prey conservation center, where we were able to "fly a hawk" as well as an owl. Highly recommend this tour to anyone lucky enough to visit Bath.

Just finished a fantastic tour by Daniel. Daniel is an absolute expert on everything and we have learned so much and really enjoyed our trip with him. He went above and beyond time after time. Many laughs and smiles were had, thank you Daniel. Would recommend to all. The hawk experience is unlike anything else and you will learn a lot. This is a MUST do experience in my opinion.

If you don't have this on your bucket list put it there. An amazing experience, having a large bird of prey come right to your outstretched hand and landing on your arm. It just cant be described fully enough. You will be so happy you tried this if you are any kind of animal lover.

When my boyfriend said he had booked a walking tour around Bath for us I was a little hesitant; worried that it might be perhaps a little boring and/or an overload of information. I needn't have worried. Dan is a fantastic tour guide. His knowledge is amazing and the way he conveys it is even more impressive. He totally gets the balance right. He quickly picks up on what you will find interesting and tells stories with humour and passion. The time flew by!! Then to get out of the city and do the hawk flying was the perfect end to the day. Something totally different and as it had been booked for me as a surprise, something totally unexpected which I also think is what makes the tour so memorable. I can't recommend Dan highly enough. We'll definitely be booking another one of his tours in the future.
