Some of my reviews...

Amanda was amazing. I came to Newcastle from Chile as a solo traveler and this tour was absolutely brilliant in terms of culture... If you don’t know much about the city and its highlights, I truly recommend this tour as part of your visit.

“We were in Durham as part of a historical tour to do with Lindisfarne, St Cuthbert, St Bede and the Lindisfarne Gospels. Our guide Amanda was a serious expert in all our areas of interest and really brought Durham and the Cathedral alive for us. We highly recommend using Amanda.”
