I enjoyed the historic tour of Durham with Alexander Iles (Iles Tours). He provided a whole raft of information about the city, its buildings, the river..... And even more about the people in history who affected the city, the area, the country. Sadly the rain prevented me taking photos of interesting items, they are all in my memory. The tour finished outside Durham Cathedral, so I was in exactly the right place to go in and have a good look round!

Thanks Alex we had a great time on your Newcastle tour, I hadn't realised just how much I didn't know about my home town and the views from the top of Grey's Monument were amazing. And Lord Grey was so much more than just the tea bloke... who knew! Lovely informative tour, relaxed and friendly

I recently did a tour of Northumberland Street and Grey's Monument led by Alex. He is such a gentleman and so full of knowledge. I really enjoyed the tour and to climb to the top of Grey's Monument was a rare and fantastic opportunity. Many thanks Alex!
