What people are saying about Northumberland

Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian’s Wall Day Tour

I was particularly interested in Hadrian’s Wall; I found the old fortress and the details provided, very interesting. Rosslyn Chapel is a nice little chapel, and obviously it has many mysteries surrounding it. I went down to the castle as well (not much left of it) which was a nice walk and could have gone further to the caves where William Wallace once went into hiding. Between Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian’s Wall we also stopped in Melrose; I did not see much of the village but I had lunch in the gorgeous Priorwood Garden, overlooking Melrose Abbey (sun was out on this September day). Our guide Alan was very entertaining and has a lot of knowledge on the historical facts of the locations that we visited.

Lovely, stunning day tour with exceptional guide

(FEBRUARY) First of all, our tour guide Martin was beyond exciting and overall a very pleasant man to have a chat with - knowledgeable, interesting and friendly. Since we were with about 8 people in total, we had plenty of time to make our stops as long as we wanted and were able to enjoy every aspect of the tour. The guide was also eager to take pictures (even when not asked). There was witty information not only about the places we visited, but also about the country itself. His personal, energetic input made the whole day so much brighter than it already was! I am definitely booking more tours with this fantastic organisation!

It was an interesting journey filled with intriguing history

I would had preferred to have had the entry tickets for Alnwick included in the total price instead of having to pay more upon arrival. The Lindisfarne visit was a bit shorter then what i would had liked but still offered a brief insight into the history of the island. The tide might have been the the cause for that though. Alnwick offered nice scenic views and interesting objects on display in the Fusilier museum and the stateroom. All in all, a good day.

Tour guide was great! Attractions better suited for the fully-abled.

Niel was wonderful. I found Alnwick very cheesy and hype-centered; I wish I'd done the gardens instead of the castle. As a mildly disabled person, I found parts of this tour too lengthy to complete within the time given, and I did not attempt the lengthy walks to/around the castles either on the Holy Island or the last castle of the day. I took my photos from a distance. Alnwick also involved a large amount of walking.

Charming tour that we highly recommend, especially Harry Potter fans!

We went on a larger tour the day before and much prefer this tour. Large van, great driver, Allan, learned history, saw historical sites, and kids loved Alnwick! They had broom flying lessons and more:).
