Knowledgeable and entertaining way to discover Bristol past and present. Great guide—a credit to your company—who was passionate about a city that was new to us but we hope to get to know even better after this wonderful introduction.

Simon is a great tour guide who entertained us with the history of Bristol, together with his quick wit and humorous anecdotes. The tour took in all the interesting aspects of the city and showed us those sites which we should explore by ourselves such as the interior of the cathedral. The tour length was just right, it was a mostly flat walk that anyone could undertake. I highly recommend this tour

Neither me nor my mum had ever been to Bristol so we decided to do a walking tour for our weekend there. It was amazing! Our guide was very interesting and informative, even though it was raining during our tour, he found places that were covered for us! (11:30am Saturday 2nd of July).

Informative Tour

Lucas did a fantastic job of showing our group of about 20 people historic sites, street art, and places of interest as we walked around the current cultural center of Bristol. He projects his voice very well so is easy to hear. He showed us the pub where Blackbeard used to drink, which is still in operation. He showed us the tavern where a man walked outside and told his true story of being shipwrecked for four years and how a man in the crowd (Daniel Defoe) ran home to write Robinson Crusoe. He showed us the house where Robert Louis Stevenson wrote Treasure Island. He showed us where John Cabot set sail on the Matthew in 1497 to discover Newfoundland, part of modern day Canada. A replica of the Matthew floats nearby and is open to the public. Very enjoyable and informative tour.

I have lived in Bristol for 62 years and I was surprised that there were so many things I didn't know. The tour guide, Simon, was knowledgeable and amusing.
