What an amazing tour. From the very beginning, Jules made me feel so welcome and it honestly felt like spending the day with some old friends. The trip was full of stories and knowledge, entertainment, surprises, amazing places, awesome food, beautiful landscapes... Jules transmits a lot of love for his land and its people, both with his words and with his way of planning and designing the tour. It doesn't follow the mainstream thing and that makes it much more special and authentic. If you're looking for a unique experience, Around and About Bath will definitely provide it!
Everything was perfect !! even the weather ! More seriously, when I travel, I always avoid the big touristy parts because I really want to understand the history of the area, and get lost in it. Jules created exactly that kind of tour ! You will discover the real Costwolds. I will not tell you where we went (secret secret), but I can tell you that every stop was better than the previous one. All locals that we met on that day welcomed us: that the best proof that everything was planed with so much respect for the villages... Cherry on top, any question you have, Jules will be able to answer! He is also a foody, so don't worry about lunch, I basically had the best fish and chip ever. 300% recommended !!!!
I did the hidden Cotswolds tour on a wet grey day. I have lived in the area for some years and never knew there was so much history n my doorstep. I highly recommend this tour and without revealing too much, you will experience authentic, local knowledge, sight seeing, history taking you back over 1000 years and all seamlessly delivered by Jules and his encyclopaedic historical knowledge! The rain didn't affect this trip at all and we had a blast with another lovely family from the USA. An experience cocktail not to miss when visiting Bath, Bristol or the South West of England.
Best part of our trip to Bath
I hesitated to take this tour because of the money. We were trying to be budget conscious. We really wanted to see Stonehenge though and to get out of the city and away from the crowds and all the stores with the same souvenirs, so we took the leap and booked it. This day turned out to be the best part of our trip and worth every penny. Jules is so knowledgeable and the visual aids really did help make the past come alive for us. It was so great to have a live guide at Stonehenge and not just an audio guide like everyone else. The places we went for coffee and lunch were lovely and Jules answered every question our granddaughter asked with total patience. The trip was made so much richer by this tour. Don't hesitate. Go.

Fantastic and very personable small group tour to Stonehenge and the surrounding Bath areas, taking in some of the less known sights in the area. This was an absolutely fantastic tour, which included a thoroughly enjoyable lunch (including drinks) at a very charming pub. Jules is very engaging and his knowledge of the area and its history is phenomenal, keeping all participants engaged for the duration of the full day tour, which is commendable. Jules then also gave us a gift bag which included a personalised post card of the days trip, which was a lovely touch. I've been on many full day tours throughout Europe and this was by far the most personable and fascinating. Highly recommended.
The friendliest, most informative, most interesting tour I have ever done. I loved the day and am going to return to do more tours. Thanks Jules.
