A step back in time

The Hadrian's wall tour was wonderful. Knowledgeable guide and plenty of opportunities to both learn about and experience 'the Wall'. The Roman Army Museum was very informative and the visit to Vindolanda was not unlike visiting Pompeii. Great scenery throughout!

A great day, saw and learned such a lot about UK’s Roman past.

Excellent driver, so knowledgeable about the Lakes area as well as Hadrian’s Wall and the history associated with Britain’s Roman past.
