Amazing Start to our Honeymoon!
We arrived into Bath on a Tuesday afternoon and in order to combat jet lag, we decided to kick off our honeymoon with a evening pub tour. We had a private tour with Jules who exceeded expectations with his wealth of knowledge of the area. We explored the mining culture of Bath, visiting one of the oldest pubs in the area, and discovered the stories of those who have stopped in over the years for a ... more drink. We then went to a fabulous upper-scale pub for dinner followed by another historic staple down town. Jules is passionate in everything he does, and his tours really immerse you in the local history without making you feel like a typical tourist being talked to. In fact, we spent the following day with him on the Cotswolds tour, and we left feeling like we had made a wonderful friend. If you have a least a full day in the Bath area, I highly recommend booking a tour with Jules!
