Three of us rated the 4 hour Roman tour, the top event of our 3 days around the countryside near Hadrians wall. Great historical content, entertaining and pitched just right for us. Really enjoyed the Vindolanda fort also with our guide it was fascinating and so much better than a self guided trip would have been.

What a wonderful experience! The beauty of the countryside is beyond compare and, being a place full of history, every stone, every tree, the very grass one walks on, is almost a surreal presence that takes you back in time. Our tour guide, Kevin, enthralled us with stories of battles and accounts of everyday life in Roman times. He’s erudite, full of enthusiasm and could answer all our questions. We truly enjoyed our time in his company…and learnt so much!

We had Kevin show us around Hadrians Wall and the nearby sights and museums, which was great! Kevin has a great wealth of knowledge and is very friendly. He is particularly good at pointing out interesting facts about things in museums that you may normally skip past. We highly recommend this tour!
