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.

The walking tour was very informative, and I loved the integration with the GPS guiding you the entire way. I didn't have to look at my phone for directions. I will use this service again. money well spent.

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

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

Easy to navigate and brilliantly explained. Insightful.
