Excellent tour 29 May 2019

The two hour tour starts at Bristol Tourist Information Centre in the city centre. We were surprised by the brilliant weather so it was a great day for our tour. Wrap up when by the harbour though!

We were met promptly by Robert Collin our Blue Badge Guide who is not only knowledgeable but his recall for names dates and places is amazing. The tour itself is not far reaching covering the city centre about 1.7mile radius but the information about the history of Bristol, its people, the river Avon and its connection to the transatlantic slave trade was very interesting. Robert covered the topic sensitively explaining facts openly and honestly, providing a balanced view on many emotive subjects.

I would recommend this tour for all interested in understanding how Port cities like Bristol became wealthy at the expense of enslaved Africans. Also learning about connections still relevant to all of us today like how the Great Western railway came into existence.
Sundays only March to November.’

‘What a fun tour. Our guide Robert Collin showed and told us about the good and not so good history of Bristol which makes it the wonderful city it is today. At the end of the tour Robert left at the perfect spot, the St. Nicholas market. Just in time for a tasty lunch and a little shopping.’

Excellent tour November 2018

‘At only 6 GBP, this might be the best bargain in the UK. Bristol has a fascinating and our Blue Badge guide Robert was just as fascinating. He very ably led us around the city, filling the time with interesting stories and historical anecdotes. Although the tour was scheduled for two hours, we were all very interested in what Robert had to say, and he was interested in showing us his city, so it ran considerably longer. From his demeanor, I thought Robert was perhaps a former history professor, it turns out that the is a retired police officer, who spent time in Hong Kong among other places. He is a genuinely nice human being and he led a terrific walk. It was the perfect way to learn about Bristol.’
