We are on a two day self-guided walking tour of Newcastle and went on the Tunnel tour on with volunteer guides John and Phil. It was superb and the lads really made the stories come alive! Strongly recommend the experience!

Something a little different to the usual tourist attraction, and very interesting. Our guides Phil & John describe the reasons for its creation, how it was constructed and its different uses extremely well. Making the time to visit was very worth while

Fantastic experience. Trevor was our guide. He did a fantastic job with the storytelling, and history of the tunnel. Trevor was very knowledgeable and took care of everyone very well. Everyone that comes to Newcastle should do this tour. Very cool.

Brilliant experience - our volunteer tour guide Phil was fantastic, very knowledgeable, funny and brought all of the stories to life.

Also very reasonably priced for a must-do experience in Newcastle for everyone.

A fantastic experience - the guides are very knowledgable and the tunnel floor is flat and easy to walk.
I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested history.

Great morning spent with my family. Would certainly recommend to other families with older children or adults. I had no idea this tunnel existed, and have lived there most of my life! I was fascinated by the history. Our guides John and Phil were extremely informative, and made the tour really entertaining. I felt terrible as didn't have money to leave in their tip jar, as hadn't realised that the guides were all volunteers so please take a little cash for your tunnel exit.
