Visiting Hadrian’s Wall has always been a personal dream. Being in England and Scotland for over a month with my family I was convinced that this dream would be easily fulfilled. However, after weeks of contacting a number of tour operators “specializing” in tours along Hadrian’s Wall, many of them not even having the common courtesy to respond back to me, and others quoting outrages sums of monies for a day tour, I was quickly discouraged. Fortunately, I took a tour along Antonine’s Wall last with Real Roman Tours last week, although being quite satisfied with the outing, I did express my disappointed with being unable to visit Hadrian’s Wall. Upon hearing this, Real Roman Tours developed a customized tour for my son and me and provided us with a fantastic experiential experience featuring visits to the Roman Army Museum and the Vindolanda Roman Fort and Museum (an active archeological site) and then a walk along the wall, this past weekend. Providing insights and interpretation into daily Roman life in Britain, the guides also engaged and enthralled my son with tales of living along the Roman frontier. Keeping an 8 year old interested in ancient history is a gift, and I cannot emphasize how much I appreciated the attention and efforts of Quintus and Rufus. Having done my research and having experienced two amazing tours with this company, I would suggest that future travelers forget the rest and simply contact the best (and most reasonable) - Real Roman Tours.
