The voucher will explain that there is a goodie bag included and that they need to contact Bristol Hoppers with their chosen date to collect from a venue along the tour route. (If they'd like to take their tour while hospitality is closed, they will need to arrange collection seperatly, or can always take the tour again - once downloaded it stays on your phone forever!)

The tour description:
All you could want from an audio tour! At your own pace, explore and learn about Bristol's Old City, discover fabulous independent food and drink venues, see some awesome street art (including two Banksy's) and discover interesting facts about the city.
With me (Heather) as your audio tour guide, locals can see our city from a different perspective, and hopefully discover somewhere new, and visitors can learn what Bristol is all about and get tips on places to stop at and come back to. The tour takes you through the oldest parts of the city at your own pace. Using your location, the app plays audio automatically, at exactly the right time and place.
Discover where Bristol all began, what happened to our castle, why we have our own time, why we were such a busy port and why so many things are being renamed. Explore markets, relax in a park, pass through the last remaining city gate, see the city's oldest pubs, marvel at the street art, see our cathedral and historic docks.
As it's all about you enjoying it at your own speed, you can stop as often as you like. To assist with this, I'll give you loads of ideas of places to eat and drink, show you a street which is a craft beer lovers paradise, point out a couple of breweries and tell you the story behind them.
The actual walking bit takes around 70-80 minutes. If you think you might want to explore the markets in detail, look inside the cathedral or stop for refreshments at one of the many recommended independent venues along the way, then allow much longer. It's a super way to spend a whole dry afternoon.
