Jules Mittra - Our Founder/Driver Guide

"I have taken many guided tours all around the world, but I can easily say that the tour with Around & About Bath stands out as one of the best experiences. My hat off to Jules for creating such a personal and genuine experience and for finding a way to share so much knowledge in a simple, accessible manner. As a history buff, it was a true pleasure to be able to ask any question and get a knowledgeable answer, to view hidden gems and to literally not bump into a single tourist group throughout the whole day." - Frodo B, 2018, Tripadvisor
Nigel Fryatt - Head of Marketing/Driver Guide

"The day I spent exploring Stonehenge and Somerset was the absolute highlight of my time in England. Nigel paid exceptional and kind attention, making sure I got everything I needed from the tour. His knowledge of the area and its history was vast, and he presented the information in a fun and engaging manner. Loved the lunch at Wells. Cannot say enough good things!" - Jayne K, 2019, Tripadvisor
Leah Brine - Head of Guest Relations

"Our morning spent with Leah was unlike any tour we've ever been on. Leah knew so, so much about Bath but the best bit was hearing a locals real perspective on the area. Leah told us about her time at university and what it has been like moving on to living in the area. We had such a relaxed time exchanging stories from our lives. We'll be back again soon." - S, Thomas 2019, email.
