Enjoyed the trip, i went by myself for a day out on holiday. Andrew T was a great guide with a good mix of interesting commentary, music, but not talking too much so we could just enjoy the view. I went to the attractions (tickets are extra so you choose which to go to) though next time id probably just go to Alnwick Gardens if a nice day and skip the other two as whilst the stops were at least an hour for each it’s still a rush to see everything you want to.
The weather was really nice when we went, so we had a really good time just wandering the castles and the priory taking pictures and exploring. Also the guide, Andrew T, is very informative, from the history and stories of the places we’re visiting to the things we see on the way to the attractions to the most random facts about Scotland.
Our tour guide was lovely. So informative and enthusiastic. You could tell this wasn’t just a job for him, he had genuine love and fascination for all aspects of the history he explored with us. He also dealt with a more challenging guest smoothly and respectfully.
Our guide was amazing. He is incredibly knowledgeable, therefore able to answer in details all the equations we had. he was also very generous with his time and polite. We would absolutely recommend this tour of Hadrian's wall. Thank you!
We had a great day. Andrew J was a fantastic guide.
