We thoroughly enjoyed our Vera tour today. Anna was delightful as a guide - full of interesting anecdotes and info about the area and about Vera. The sunshine was a bonus! We’re from North Yorkshire and have been to Newcastle a few times but don’t know it well; and have not been to the coastal areas we visited today. It’s inspired us to go back to Northumberland for some short breaks.

Had a wonderful afternoon with Anna as our guide. She is very knowledgeable about Vera and the areas we toured. As people who have never visited this part of the UK before it was great to see these places and their points of interest especially as each location was introduced with a short clip from the Vera episode in question. Would definitely recommend the tour to everyone with an interest in the program.

Having successfully negotiated the Metro we arrived at the pick up point for the Vera tour . We were greeted by our guide and were able to get the front seats. My wife and i thought the tour was wonderful as we had never been to Newcastle before and were very impressed.We visited various locations and during the tour our guide Anna Unger gave us a vast amount of history and facts about the city and the filming locations. Anna was brilliant, very informative with a sense of humour, everything a tour guide should be. The tour at 4hrs seems long but it is not we had 3 breaks and the time flies when you are enjoying yourself. Would strongly recommend this tour

this was a trip for a half a day for four hours. the tour guide was really good told you good facts around the locations. but we didnt go anywhere near the nortumberland areas it was mostly newcastle and visit down to coastal areas eg tynemouth whitley bay she did mention that cause the coach was to big they decided not to go to northumberland arears. well if i knew this i wont have gone but the trip was good got see places i wont have gone to. the only thing i thought we were sitting on coach to long we were allowed off in a couple of loactions but think it could hve been more. i think more locations we could have visit and maybe a visit just one location in northumberland. but was a good day out. thanks

Partner and I had done some initial "Vera touring" on our own prior to this tour. Our guide for the day (Anna U) provided an informative commentary throughout our 4 hour tour. The coach on which we travelled was brand new and the most comfortable either of us have experienced. The coach driver (Walter) negotiated some tight spaces calmly and professionally. Would recommend this not only for the Vera onformation but for the other insights into Newcastle.
