I made a day trip from northern England during a recent stay. I found this tour online and found it to be a great way to see the city and country in a few hours. There are stops along the way and it’s a great balance of country and city sites. Peter and Mike were very helpful and accommodating with bike fitting. Mike was a great tour guide and very personable. The bike ride is hilly and it was windy and I found it difficult at times but did not take away from the experience. Highly recommend the tour to see the sites throughout the city.
Excellent use of time so that the driving did not dominate the day. The driver's almost non-stop patter was irritating at times but I appreciated that he gave honour to the history and events that caused Lindisfarne to be named Holy Island. The priory was inspiring and the Alnwick gardens were beautiful and well worth the fee, even more so with the 10% reduction for being on a Heart of Scotland tour (which actually toured places in England :)
Wonderful day trip over the border. This is a very good tour as there is plenty of time to walk around Alnwick Castle. George is the man.... he is an encyclopaedia of relevant information with a smattering “tasteful” humour. Highly recommend to anyone thinking of taking this one.
Linda our guide was exceptionally knowledgable and this showed through with her enthusiasm brushing up on us. I would advice that although this trip is guided at 2.15 hours that you allow longer to have a good look around the palace at the end.
Angela was an amazing guide. She was very funny and knowlegable about the places we went and the places we passed along the way. She had so much personality and really made our tour exceptional.
