I am Anthea founder of Ginger Bird Explores. I run a variety of foodie walking tours in Bath including the Bath Food Tour, Bath Food & Footsteps and the 1.5hr Tour & Taste.
After spending many years travelling I have returned to my roots in Bath, and as a tour guide. I set up Ginger Bird Explores as I love Bath, I love food, and this city has so many amazing artisans and independent eateries, and I wanted to share them with others!
From doing many tours myself I know what you want..a unique experience, a fun engaging tour, a local who is passionate about their city and to experience and taste things you were not expecting!
If you choose to book any of my tours you will go on an experience of Bath, one that you will fondly remember in taste bud memories, pictures and stories that bring this city alive.

Often food tours are centered solely around what will be eaten. Put that aside for now and consider a tour guide that gives you a tour like they have not done it x1000 for others , that’s Anthea. Bath with a local ? Okay. Bath with a local + meet independent businesses along the way - yes! Anthea has a heart , an easy manner and patience. Leave your snobbery at home , indulge in the history. On this tour we had tasty bites , but history was also served . Covid safe! ;)

Anthea was brilliant, she has so much knowledge of Bath and it’s history and of course the best places to eat and drink. We enjoyed the tour and can’t wait to Come back to Bath and try some of the other places Anthea recommended.
