What people are saying about Halfpenny Bridge

Caiti & Paul could not have done any better - they were fantastic tour hosts - informative & funny. They both seemed to have a genuine passion for the history & culture of Bath and took pride in sharing their knowledge with us. We were comfortable throughout the trip and enjoyed the Prosecco! Such a treat! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone and in fact, despite already doing it once would book again in a heartbeat! Thank you both!! Katie & Hayley

Small boat but enough room for the eight travelers. The crew were friendly and informative without the usual recorded tannoy type recorded commentry that you get on some guided tours. Lovely to see the city from a different perspective on the water. I'd recommend the tour for visitors and local residents. Thank you.

We had a wonderful trip thanks to Kaiti and her well timed and well pitched enthusiasm for the history and surrounding areas of the canal. Thank you for a superb experience and memorable trip.

Despite the rain we had a lovely time. The boat was warm and cosy. Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was a lovely way to see Bath.

Absolutely fantastic hosts on the boat. Knowledgable, relaxed. A beautiful trip
