Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet at Bath Quays on the riverside in central Bath. Be greeted by your skipper and guide to start this unique land and water tour of the World Heritage city.

    Cruise for 30 minutes along the Avon River, taking in sights such as the Half Penny Bridge, St. John's Church, Bath Abbey, Parade Gardens, Pulteney Bridge, the Weir and the Mill.

    The short walking tour will take under an hour, designed to give you an overview of Bath's rich history and orientate you with the city. The tour includes the main sights of the Roman Baths, The Abbey, Guildhall, the Ancient City Wall, the Theatre Royal, and Queens Square.

    This tour is ideal for those who are looking for an informed, leisurely overview of the city. The total combined tour is approximately 80/90 minutes in duration and will provide plenty of signposting to allow you to explore the city on your own and make the most effective use of your time.

    Being short this is ideal for families with children and there is a kids quiz to help keep them interested on the walking tour.

    We have a licenced bar on our small 12 person all weather traditional cruiser, so during this part you can relax with a prosecco or another drink from our hot and cold drinks collection.

    What a lovey way to see Bath. Firstly by boat on the river and then walking around the pretty town. Jacob was our fantastic guide and was very engaging and knowledgeable about Bath. He had a real passion for Bath and was happy to answer any questions we had. Highly recommend

    Good split trip, we were late for the boat part of the trip so did that the next day (thank you). The walking tour is only about an hour, short easy walk around the city, interesting and well presented. The boat trip is up from Avon car park to Pulteney Bridge and back, about 30

    Poor Lady Pamela ! As the reviews reflect most people like the trip and her originality. She's class and classic. Stylish 60's cut, pure teak, lovingly looked after by her thoughly modern guides and hosts. Lady Pam if booked privately, can play the latest music, and serves a cool range of drinks. Everyone has different tastes which is why we provide accurate photos and information at booking. Its the package we are offering !

    This was the perfect way to see Bath in one day! We stopped over in Bath for just a few hours, after waking up in London and ending the night in Cardiff, and in that time we took this tour. It was just me and my wife, and it started off on a pleasant river cruise on a little

    This is described as a qùck 50min tour to orientate you around Bath, get a taste of history and recomendations.So, you can then explore later. It sounds like you should have chosen a longer tour as ypur wondering did cause a challenge for the tour guide but you told us you enjoyed it which is great !
