We had such an amazing time! Definitely recommend, the boat + walking trip was beautiful! We learnt a lot about the History of Bath and had some lovely chats with the Boat Driver. The walking tour was really great to do as we learnt more about all the places we had walked 2 days prior. Would definitely recommend for all ages, families and couples.

Cruise was fine and informative. Paul was skipper and Ivan was explaining what we saw. The walking tour with Billie was great. Just the right length for an overview of the highlights of Bath. Billie was lovely and very informative about her hometown
