I had the pleasure of a 4 Hour + Walking Tour of Newcastle Yesterday covering all the sites from Grainger Town to Newcastle Castle! Alex was amazing and really accomodating with my specific needs being Autistic. His In-depth knowledge is impeccable and I had an amazing time on Tour. I highly recommend Alex and his Tours .... I could go on but I don't need to ... Just experience his Tours for yourself 😃.

Alex met us promptly at our ship and we immediately got started by seeing a close by portion of Hadrian's Wall. This was followed by an amazing tour of the City and seeing the castle itself. He made the tour exciting for my kids (ages 10 and 13) and they really got a sense of the City and its incredible history! If you are going to Newcastle I highly recommend giving Alex a call!

Alex has an incredible knowledge of Newcastle and its history. His commentary itself was outstanding, but I was blown away when I'd ask him a follow-up question and get another deep, thoughtful response.

We covered a lot of ground in the half-day tour, and my group of 5 loved every minute. Alex has an excellent speaking voice, and he made sure to position himself so everyone could hear what he was saying.

A terrific day, thanks to Alex. I highly recommend his guiding services if you are in the Newcastle area.
