EXCELLENT TOUR
Read More
We (A group of International Students) had a great tour around the North East Uk, our first stop was at the Angel of the North and we ended with a boat trip around the Farne Islands. Our tour guide Alex did an excellent job he was very knowledgeable and provided us with some interesting facts. Menu choices was booked in advance so there wasn't a long wait for food for our large group, all was very well organised.

EINFACH EINE SUPER TOUR!

Wir waren im Rahmen einer Städtereise mit einer Gruppe in Newcastle und alle waren begeistert. Unser Guide Alex hat uns super betreut und hat uns "seine" Stadt mit viel Begeisterung und Herz näher gebracht. Wir haben uns nichts vorstellen können und haben gesagt wir kommen wieder, da die Stadt so vielfältig ist. Traditionelle Bauten und viel Modernes - einfach super!

UNVERGESSLICHE STUNDEN
Read More
Seit 2009 besuchen wir regelmäßig Newcastle und sind immer wieder von der Stadt und ihrem Umland begeistert. Dieses Jahr wollten wir einfach mehr von Newcastle wissen und buchten die Tour mit Alexander. Sie war etwas ganz Besonderes. Newcastle als aufstrebenden Wirtschaftsstandort kennenzulernen und gleichzeitig die geschichtliche Entwicklung zu verstehen war genauso reizvoll wie die Entdeckung vieler kleiner versteckter Ecken. So haben wir dank Alexander Newcastle in einem neuen Licht gesehen. Vielen Dank an ihn für drei unvergessliche Stunden!

PHENOMENAL GUIDE
Read More
Our guide was phenomenal - perfect blend of history, cultural information and humour. His passion for the region was clear, especially for Newcastle. I don't think I would have properly appreciated Newcastle or been as enthusiastic about it as I now am without the commentary on the evolution of the city.

CASTLES, GARDENS & FILM LOCATIONS

The North East is home to more castles & fortified buildings than any other region in England. Explore medieval strongholds such as Barnard Castle or Raby Castle, discover Pele towers built during the times of the Border Reivers or experience romantic ruins such as Dunstanburgh or Tynemouth Castle.

Our gardens are hidden wonders… From the highly contemporary at The Alnwick Garden to the ultimate luxury (in Victorian times) at Cragside Estate. Find your favourite in hidden corners such as Lindisfarne, Durham or along Hadrian’s Wall…

And then there are great locations seen in movies & TV! Discover the coastal might of Bamburgh Castle, used in part of the Transformers franchise or immerse yourself in history, intrigue & magic at Alnwick Castle, home to a famous wizard and also the set for Brancaster Castle in Downton Abbey (plus home to the Percy family of Alnwick!). Take a look at our half-day Alnwick Castle tour.

There is so much to be discovered – our guided tours of Newcastle & North East England will take you to the highlights but will always find time for the hidden secrets… Take a look at one of our regions in more depth, such as Northumberland and the tours we offer that include grand castles, magnificent gardens & blockbuster locations!

EXPERIENCE THE WILD SIDE

Whether you are in the wild landscapes of the Durham Dales or Northumberland National Park, you can easily spot black grouse, falcons, adders or lizards.

Bird enthusiasts will fall in love during a tour of our very own Galapagos Islands, the Farne Islands – 50,000 puffins, 20,000 guillemots and countless others… The mudflats along the coast are great places to spot migrating wading birds and wild fowl such as pale-bellied Brent geese or peregrines during the autumn and winter seasons.

Along the Northumberland coast you’ll come across several colonies of seals, orcas, smaller whales & porpoise…

On a tour of Kielder Forest & Reservoir you’ll discover the homes of the endangered native red squirrel, roe deer, otters, bats or ospreys. You’ll also find the largest salmon hatchery in England and Wales.
