One of the best tours we have done anywhere. Sue made the most of our day trip to Bath. Knowledgeable friendly and informative. Good advise on trains etc. Lots of detail and references to where streets and buildings appear in the books. Highly recommended.

Date: Jul 11/19

Susan was very knowledgeable, personable, and articulate. She personalized my tour according to requests I had sent her. I learned a huge amount and got a good feel for what late 18-century life in Bath was like. Susan had done original research and informed me about things I was unaware of. Highly Recommended!

Susan was very pleasant. We found her very easily at our train station once we arrived and she gave us a very thorough overview of Bath. We had our 4 boys with us and she was very engaging to each of them. We truly enjoyed it.

Susan was a very nice person with lots of knowledge about the area. We were on a four hour tour and we covered a lot of territory. My only regret was not taking the time to go into a few spots to see them more thoroughly. After our tour we did the Baths and that I don't think was worth the time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the review and I enjoyed showing you round. As you say, we covered a lot in our 2 and a half hour tour. I hope the rest of your holiday went well.

Our Jane Austen tour of Bath with guide Susan last week was all that we hoped for and more. We were shown the highlights of Jane Austen's stay in Bath and thus we got to know more about her plus seeing the beautiful attractions of Bath! Sue herself was highly knowledgeable and very amiable and we got on very well with her. We'd recommend this tour and Sue herself to anyone interested in Jane Austen and Bath itself!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It makes my job particularly worthwhile when I hear how much you appreciated the tour. It was really good to meet you too. Thanks

Our Bath City Tour was great! Susan is very knowledgeable and also very pleasant to spend time with... She knows the city well and can answer any questions you may have. Additionally, Susan had great advice in regards to The Roman Baths, where to eat (or drink) and also on the Design Museum. And, we were also able to get many beautiful pictures on this private tour in Bath. Thanks -- Susan for our very memorable tour! Barry and Gayle Wenn

I signed up for the tour of Jane Austen's Bath to learn more about Jane Austen's life in Bath. I was very impressed with Sue's prompt email replies when I arranged my tour. She was also accommodating to our needs, and she even agreed to meet us at our apartment. Sue was delightful in person, and we learned a lot from her. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Bath. Thanks, Sue.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am delighted my tour helped you with your research into the period Jane Austen lived in. Thanks for recommending me.

The Best Jane Austen Tour Guide! My daughters and I are unembarrassed Jane Austen fans and our cup was full by the end of the tour. We walked, saw and experienced things I did not see in a previous guided tour of Bath. She also showed us other things not related to Austen and was very informative and approachable. Excellent guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great that we were able to change the City and Country walk into a Jane Austen in Bath/City Highlights walk and you are all so knowledgeable about the books! I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed our time together.

Tour: Half a Day in Bath., Bath, England, United Kingdom
Date: Jun 23/17

For me this packed half day with Sue was very special as it combined places associated with my own family history as well as some of the sites for which Bath is famous and their historical significance. Sue thoughtfully built in some rest stops and adjusted the pace to my plus seventy five years. She also made suggestions of other places I personally might find interesting. Her enthusiasm and love for this lovely old city is evident in everything she pointed out or explained.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary. I thoroughly enjoyed our special afternoon looking at the places where your family had lived and thinking about the sort of lives they may have had. They certainly had good views. Good luck with the project.

Susan was a terrific guide -- very knowledgeable, flexible in her approach, friendly and a great sense of humor. She knew Bath and its history and architecture extremely well and was able to make great recommendations about places to eat and must see spots outside of town and the scope of her tour. We have taken several tours using Tours by Locals, all but one have been really good, but this was probably the best. We highly recommend Susan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your generous praise. It gives me great pleasure to hear that I played a part in helping you to have such a good stay in Bath and I really enjoyed your company.
