Demi Rocks!
Jul 2021
Demi made the tour interesting with her knowledge on the stories. I enjoyed her friendly way, sense of humor and she made the group feel comfortable. I loved wondering around the streets and hearing about the history and crimes of Newcastle. The walk near the ocean was gorgeous too, listening to the crashing waves on route.

I really enjoyed the tour and was very surprised about the horrible and twisted crimes that were committed in Newcastle. Remi was a great tour guide. She wasn’t in a rush to tell the stories and she had a lot of information.

This True Crime walking tour was an absolutely fantastic experience. The tour guide Yasmin maintained the difficult balance between enthusiasm and respect perfectly and with ease. It was a great opportunity to learn about the lesser known history of Newcastle and altogether a very pleasant evening.
