This tour was excellent - I've lived in Bristol for my whole life and I learned loads of new stuff about familiar areas. Luke was a fun and friendly guide and the distance/timings were spot on. It was a really good balance of funny stories and key bits of Bristol's history. Highly recommended!

James was a really dynamic guide, engaging and interacting with the group. The stories and facts that were shared were interesting and very well delivered. A really unique and fun way to get a real flavour of the city and visit some lesser know spots.
