    Insightful and entertaining. Highly recommended
    This tour achieved the perfect balance between informative and entertaining with an incredibly knowledgeable tour guide and a fascinating subject in scenic Northumberland. Kevin offered in depth information during the tour and was able to answer every question with insight and breadth. Overall one of the best history tours we’ve taken. Highly recommended!

    Friendly and knowledgeable guide, leisurely stroll
    Very picturesque location for a great delve into history, and not just roman. Kevin can elaborate on many interesting details from the daily life of people on and around the wall, to the military intricacies of such a vast frontier. The tour works great for both history nerds and people who are just a bit curious, without any knowledge requirements. The are amazing views around the spot, and the tour gives you the time to soak them in between the informative discussions. Even better, this is not a heavy walking tour, but a nice stroll along a part of the wall. Would recommend it to anyone!

    2 hour tour of Hadrians Wall - highly recommended
    We had a 4 day break in Haltwhistle as part of a 70th birthday present to my hubby. I booked this tour with Ancient Britain based on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We turned up to meet Kevin, who was in full auxiliary dress from the Brigantes tribe. It was very impressive. He spent about 30 minutes explaining about his dress attire and giving facts on the Romans. He also brought props to talk us though. He made the chat interactive which was fun. Once we had been de-briefed he changed attire and took us on the tour along the wall. He made stops every so often - which catered for the older of the group - and gave us more and more detail to soak up. We were extremely lucky with the weather which made the tour even more pleasurable. Everyone was asking questions of which Kevin answered because he has such a vast and deep knowledge....he really made the group connect and imparted information that was easily digestible (even for those like me who are NOT Roman nuts :-) and extremely interesting. Definitely recommend.....you wouldn't get half the fun or pleasure without Kevin as a tour guide.

    Best tours we could have asked for!!
    We could not have asked for a better tour of a section of Hadrian’s Wall and nearby Vindolanda Museum! Kevin is incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the Roman period in Ancient Britain. As Kevin toured us through the museum (which has an active archaeological dig April to September) I felt sad for guests who did not have the benefit of his insights and stories. My husband, who loves historical walking tours, was extremely pleased that we had been lucky enough to benefit from Kevin’s expertise. Highly recommend!!

    Fantastic Guide and great experience
    We were fortunate to have stumbled upon this 2 hour walking tour with Kevin. He is very knowledgeable about this area and Hadrian's wall. We learnt a lot about the history and kept us exploring more of this area for next two days. We travelled with two young kids and he was able to keep them engaged and entertained, even answered some of their trivial questions. The details of the Roman clothings, weapons were interesting and we had opportunity to get pictures ... Worth every penny... May be next time take a longer tour !!

    The big picture
    Kevin started out by showing us the clothing and weapons of Roman Britain, then we went for a short walk to see the wall, a milecastle and the earthworks south of the wall from various angles. Kevin is very knowledgeable about the Romans and their history in the area, and did a wonderful job of describing Hadrian's Wall not just as a boundary, but as an economic and social ecosystem, connected up with the whole Roman Empire, its trade and its people. This was reinforced by the visit to Vindolanda, which under Kevin's guidance, put the Wall into a much wider perspective. A real day to remember.

    Brilliant tour
    This is a fantastic tour given by a brilliant guide. We had half an hour of information before we set off to see Hadrians Wall. We walked up to surprisingly intact wall and the remains of a fort. The guide really brought the landscape to life and pointed out things you would never have seen without him.

    History Comes to Life!
    My two-week solo history exploration of parts of England included this fascinating section of Hadrian’s Wall. I wanted to do more than walk the wall, so I booked this tour and I’m so glad I did. Kevin, the tour guide, is a wealth of information about all things Roman Britain history. Kevin was able to answer all my questions and boy did I have a lot of questions. I was lucky enough to be the only person who booked the tour that day. I am so thankful that he did not cancel the tour, as I had come to Haltwhistle specifically for this tour. I made sure to wear sturdy but comfortable shoes as the terrain along the wall is uneven. This tour included admission to Vindolanda. This Roman archaeological site and museum is an extraordinary informative sight, where you can truly see Roman Britain come to life. If you enjoy history, I strongly encourage you to book this tour.

    Brilliant !
    Kevin is an excellent guide, such an amicable chap, so enthusiastic and engaging with a tremendous depth of knowledge. The ancient past was truly brought to life. I am fairly local to Hadrians Wall and must say I learnt more on the subject than I ever did throughout school ! Would reccommend his tours in a heartbeat. I now have a real interest into further research...Go raibh maith agat !

    Great tour experience
    Kevin was a very knowledgeable guide who gave us an excellent tour. It was a great experience, particularly his information in the Vindolanda museum which was a special site. The pace of the tour was not too strenuous for seniors like us with dodgy knees. Getting to the site really needs a car but facilities once in the carpark are good with toilets and a coffee van. Thanks Kevin. A good day.

I was so pleased to receive a voucher as a present and take the opportunity to spend such a great day this way. I live locally and have been visiting these sites for 40+ years, but my knowledge and insight has certainly expanded after the guide with Kevin today. The 4 hour guide is so worth it, and the highlight is certainly visiting Vindolanda and gaining such an extensive understanding of life on the Hadrian Wall frontier through Kevin's insight and knowledge. It's one of the best museums and sites about the Roman Occupation in England and Kevin's explanations make it 'come alive'. The start at Cawfields, one of my favourite picnic spots, 'sets the scene' and gives an overview of Hadrian's Wall, and it's significance. Opportunities for some great views too!
Going by myself, with some local knowledge to places I know well, I beforehand wondered how cheesy this might be, but it's absolutely NOT! What I came away with is an admiration for my heritage, my continued love of Northumberland and Tynedale, deep appreciation for Kevin's insight and a day (one of my favourites this year so far) well spent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our guided walk with Kevin who provided us with lots of information, but it never felt like a lecture, more like a conversation. The Vindolanda Museum was impressive and made all the better for Kevin pointing out the most fascinating finds. It was also interesting to see conservation in action at this site. Kevin brought alive the stories of Roman Britain and even got into character to make it an unforgettable day.

The tour was great. Our tour guide (didn't get his name) was so knowledgeable and attentive. My friend has dementia and he was very accepting of her non-sequetors. We had to leave half way through but I would definitely recommend this for people who want to learn a lot in a short space of time.

Excellent guided tour. Kevin is well informed, enthusiastic and approachable. Plenty of time to ask questions. Weather can be dodgy (cold & wet) in that part of the world so dress appropriately. Then you will enjoy every minute.

Kevin is a great guide. My wife & I have visited Northumberland & Hadrian’s Wall off and on for 20 years, he’s not only the most informed & informative guide but also personable and easy to engage. His knowledge and understanding of British Roman history is deep and nuanced, and he was great at fielding our American questions. I have no reservations recommending him to someone visiting Northumberland for the first time or for the 15th.

A great day! After an introductory talk, Kevin took us along stretches of the Wall, explaining the history, geography and politics of the time as we went, and then took us round the forts and surroundings of Vindulanda and Housesteads, again bringing the place to life with his knowledge and explanations. Excellent value for money.

Due to a group cancellation on the day, I was fortunate to have a solo tour with tour guide, Kevin. His deep knowledge of Roman history in Britain & his passion for Hadrian’s Wall &, in particular, Vindolanda ensured it was a memorable experience. Thoroughly recommended.
