The tour was great and I really enjoyed it. Our tour guide Leon was fantastic, super funny and presented a lot of facts in an interactive way and made us all laugh. Recommend this tour 100%. Time was spread out equally and you had plenty of free time in Bath, however, by the time I was in Bath was a bit tired. Forgot the name of the driver but he was super friendly too ❤️

Our guide, Phil was very knowledgeable and allowed everyone an opportunity to ask questions throughout the trip. Our driver was excellent! Our time to enjoy each location on the tour was limited, but enough to see all the important things.

The guides are extremely knowledgeable and provide an excellent way to see London. I also liked being able to follow everything with my smartphone.

Perfect activity for children. We loved every second of it!

Very interesting tour. Covered a lot of facts and details
