  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This was a really enjoyable tour! Our guide was both knowledgeable and funny, and able to answer the questions we asked. There was lots of history, a bit of myth and stuff in between. Not only did we cover the big things like the cathedral but also many smaller points if interests you'd never find by yourself. I booked this last minute as a spontaneous day trip from york and wasn't disappointed - recommended!

    Peter, our guide, was excellent and enthusiastic, he was very knowledgeable and a good raconteur. The pace was just right with many pause points. It whetted our appetite to see more of Durham.

    A Christmas present for my wife and what a fascinating wander around Durham. Our guide Julie was very knowledgeable and a very professional friendly guide.
    The first stop delivered an excellent breakfast butty in sourdough bread. The wine shop in the market provided great wine and an interesting conversation about wines. The restaurant that we had not come across before was the Barrio Comida and what an amazing find. Great food and a fantastic view of the cathedral. With 2 more stops on our tour, we were absolutely stuffed by the time we had finished and didn't eat again until the following day. We even had to take a doggy bag away with us from our dessert stop. Julie also shared some interesting facts and stories about Durham during the tour.
    If you are in Durham and looking for a gentle wander around the city with regular stops for food and drink then this is the tour for you. The great news is that there are also food tours in Newcastle which are now on our to do list

    Was in Durham for two days but no walking tours running on a Friday so took up the self guided option. It was actually really informative easy to follow the directions and we would never of found our way around with out it. Took just over an hour, a pleasant walk with history details but at a nice pace. Well done would recommend. (You do have to go down steps to the river)

    I did two tours, one of Hadrian's Wall, and one specially created for me, which followed the life story of a 19th century serial killer (for a book I'm working on). I kept congratulating myself on being smart enough to pick this tour company. The trips werebeautifully researched, fun, and incredibly knowledgeable. The guide, Anna Unger, was thoughtful, smart and just good company. Beautiful country, terrific guide, great experience start to finish.

    You cannot fail to be impressed by this imposing cathedral and the history behind it. The welcome is warm and the stewards informative and chatty. There is so much to see and process. Memorials, tombs and the huge architecture. Do spend some time at the shrines of Beds and St Cuthbert, as well as appreciating the stained glass.

    To complement our visit we called into the cafe where we were served a lovely latte and a huge jam and cream scone, delicious and every bit homemade.

    A voluntary donation is requested and we were happy to donate, it was such a wonderful experience for a small amount of money.

    We ended up with a private tour since nobody else happened to be booked on the day we'd gone for, and the guide was very engaging and had lots of interesting information to pass on about the city and the region. Would definitely recommend, though if you're unable to make it up and down hills this probably isn't for you.
