A thoroughly enjoyable experience learning so much about the history of Bristol told in an amusing way. We saw parts of central Bristol that I never knew existed. Great humour and knowledge from our entertaining host.

A great way to spend an evening, lots of really interesting facts about the local history. The length of the walk was good for the time of day too

The yup team were very helpful when I was running late to help put me in contact with the host to meet along the route. The service was fast and straight forward something I didn’t expect on a Saturday night. It’s nice to see customer service at the for front of your platform it was not unnoticed and a refreshing change in today’s market. John the host happily welcomed us to continue the tour with him and we were also allowed to bring our dog, it was an interesting evening!
