This tour was great, David was an amazing guide. Our ride was filled with interesting facts and stories about the places we were passing and visiting! The only downside was due to the tide, we only had about 30-40 minutes at the Holy Island, but it was worth the visit! Alnwick Castle was beautiful!

This was a great tour to Holy Island and Alnwick Castle. Both sites were great to see but it would have been nice to spend more time on Holy Island to go through the castle. It was a lager bus but still well organized and the driver was really nice.

Rose did an excellent job driving the bus and narrating the tour.even though zeal wick castle was closed she took us to several other places that were very interesting. Her knowledge of the area and its history and folklore was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend this tour . R. Carlson

I found the trip to Holy Island and Alnwick Castle excellent and the driver, David, was full of energy and personality, coupled with an excellent commentary. The day seemed to fly by. I would have liked more time on Holy Island as early Christianity is an interest of mine, but perhaps others would rather the castle which I did find interesting. All in all, a wonderful tour, full of interesting tidbits of history and enjoyment.

The tour was great and I highly recommend it. The tour started promptly and our guide/driver was excellent. I would have liked to have arrived earlier to Alnwick Castle in order to take one of the guided tours of the castle. Our arrival time there did not allow this, so we did a selfguided tour. Overall the trip was excellent experience!
