Daniel exceeded our expectations. He took us to all the places we requested as well as others we had no idea we wanted to see. I travel with a rollator walker and he was very helpful our entire trip. We did 3 different tours with Daniel. The day we went to Glastonbury we also went to Wells where we visited the Cathedral. We were staying in Bath and on the return from Wells we traveled through Cheddar and Cheddar Gorge which was magnificent to see. I will do Bath and Stonehenge as separate reviews so I can post pictures of all.

Dan made it really easy to arrange a tour. I sent an email and he responded quickly. He sent a confirmation email with details about when and where he would pick us up. He came right to the door of our hotel on time and off we went. His car was spotless and comfortable and on the way he shared the history of the area and pointed out interesting sights. He was fun and engaging during our tour and had loads of knowledge of the history, myths, legends and the culture of the area. After a walk through town and a tour of the ruins of the abbey, Dan gave us the option of continuing to walk through the town or climb of the Glastonbury Tor (what I like to think of as the hill of despair). We chose the hill and it did not disappoint. It was an absolutely gorgeous view of the surrounding area. He's great at what he does, is clearly a people person and is attentive and accommodating. As a side note, Dan's traveled the world and is a super interesting fellow.

We were very lucky to book this tour with Daniel, such a great and knowledgeable guide. Before the tour he gave us plenty of information and good tips on how to make the most of our stay in Bath and Glastonbury. During the tour he was exceptionally friendly, available and attentive to our last minute requests. The tour pace was just perfect and his car comfortable and spotlessy clean, the perfect choice to wander around narrow countryside roads. We highly recommend Bath Insider Tours! Couldn’t have had a better experience!
