Very clear concise narrative. Could stop and start as much as we wanted to. Interesting and not overdone facts about a lovely city. Although we'd walked around the day before this tour took us to places we wouldn't have seen or particularly noticed.

Easy to follow and interesting historical tour. It’s a lot about pubs/breweries and street art though!!

Great way of discovering the city and great information provided. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Superb! Loved it! Saw different sides of Bristol and a great choice of bars!

Easy to navigate and brilliantly explained. Insightful.
