Client Feedback

We had the most marvellous time and thoroughly enjoyed our walk along Hadrian’s Wall. Thank you ever so much for arranging it. Virtually everything was perfect. Thank you again for enabling us to conquer the wall.

We really enjoyed the tour. All accommodations and hosts were very nice and clean. The duration and length of the daily walks were perfect. Not too long and not too short. The luggage transport always worked as well as the transfer to the hotels. Everything worked and was perfectly organised. Thank you very much for the great experience.
