Kevin opened up the booking site so we can book a tour during half term. It was a fascinating 2 hours of history and walking and my children rated it the best activity of our holiday. I would thoroughly recommend it.

My dad and I were fortunate enough to be the only guests on this tour, which meant that our guide was able to give us a very personal experience. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly and very courteous and accommodating of my dad’s mobility limits. I would heartily recommend this tour. Thank you for making our trip extra special.

Excellent guide. Excellent tour. Located at a beautiful but less crowded part of the wall. Without people the wall and area are amazingly peaceful. Great way to see the wall by train in/out of Newcastle.

Kevin is an excellent guide. A very nice chap and extremely knowledgable. He really brought to life what it was like during the Roman occupation. It was only a two hour tour but we learnt so much about Hadrian’s wall and the history surrounding it. Would highly recommend doing this as part of your visit to the area.
