He answered all my questions and on request found me a great pub to have a drink at the tours end. Thanks

Very interesting tour of Newcastle, the guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a fantastic insight into the history, culture and industry of Newcastle. We were very lucky as my wife and I were the only people booked on the tour which enabled us to ask numerous questions, which were all answered in an informative manner and never once was the guide flummoxed in any way. All in all a very enjoyable tour and one that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Newcastle.

This tour was both informative and interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable and shared all the facts in lively and interesting way. I would recommend this highly. There are so many parts of Newcastle that you don't see by browsing alone.
