This is an excellent Free service for visitors. The tour guides are so well informed and a delight to listen to. It was a two hour walk through the highlights (the guides are a lighlight too!). What a friendly thing for a city to do.

We were pleased to participate in this highly informative two hour plus tour. The plus bit refers to an additional piece of Bath I had enquired about which our guide Paul was happy to expand on. We particularly liked the architectural and social history insights .

It was educational, informative and delivered with humour and totally free which may stagger readers of this site. As such this could be viewed as the ultimate in touristic altruism!

Highly recommended.

Run everyday except Christmas Day. Really nice thing to do and it is hosted by volunteers who will not accept tips or payment, though you really want to give them something. Guide was very informative and knowledgeable and guided us around Bath. About 2 hours long and after that it was time for a pint

We went on a fabulous walking tour and learned so much. Our guide was very amusing and had some fantastic stories to share with us. I gladly would have paid for the tour as it was one of the best city walking tours I have been on. A great introduction to the city and it's sights.

If you want to see and learn about Bath (for free!) then please take one of the Mayor's Guides tours. This is a great, fun way to orient yourself to Bath and plan the rest of your stay.
