Great day

My wife was kind enough to book me in for a bush crafting experience day which I decided to take our son with me too. Kevin who was our host for the day was friendly, polite and very professional. It was a fun packed day with a lovely bit of relaxing next to the fire at lunch while tucking into our lunch and a hot cuppa. Well worth the money and both my son and I had a great day .

Fascinating and really enjoyable day


Sophie R,
Kevin picked us up from Hexham and took us a really scenic route to explore three of Cumbria's stone circles. He is very personable, knowledgeable and engaging. Would highly recommend one of his tours.

A fantastic day with Kevin!

Kevin picked us up at the train station, took us to our B &B and then spent the rest of the day helping us explore Hadrian’s Wall. He is knowlegeable, engaging, informative and has a great sense of humor. He has traveled the world and come back home to share his special part of the earth with folks like us. We had a marvelous day with him!

Excellent tours of Hadrian’s Wall and castles of the coast


Inspiration756628,
Our tours with Kevin were exceptional! He was a fount of knowledge both about the tour topics and whatever questions we threw at him. I recommend him and his company as a tour guide to anyone who wants to explore Northumbria and learn about it’s history and beauty. Our time with him was easy, fun, and informative. Thanks so much, Kevin!
