Been on two occasions with school groups and found Findlay and colleagues very helpful and accommodating in organising our visits. Kids thoroughly enjoyed their experience and keen to return!

It may of rained, but it was a great tour of the castle. Felt the segways were easy to learn but difficult to master at some points. Pot holes were a nightmare. Stacked it once. 🙂
