    Even though it was pouring the entire time, Tom made it fun and interesting and went out of his way to make it an awesome experience. A fabulous guide with a genuine passion for his city. Informative and entertaining. Thoroughly recommend it. Cheers Tom.

    Was in Durham for two days but no walking tours running on a Friday so took up the self guided option. It was actually really informative easy to follow the directions and we would never of found our way around with out it. Took just over an hour, a pleasant walk with history details but at a nice pace. Well done would recommend. (You do have to go down steps to the river)

    We really enjoyed this tour. Peter was friendly and knowledgeable. The hour and half flew by! I would highly recommend this for an overview of the city’s history.

    Wonderful half day tour of Durham with Alex. Started off near the train station which has a lovely view of the city and worked our way into and through the town. Alex was a great source of information about the area and the city itself including the cathedral.

    Wonderful guide: knowledgeable, witty and generally a nice bloke. Also volunteers at the cathedral. Definitely worth booking.

    You cannot fail to be impressed by this imposing cathedral and the history behind it. The welcome is warm and the stewards informative and chatty. There is so much to see and process. Memorials, tombs and the huge architecture. Do spend some time at the shrines of Beds and St Cuthbert, as well as appreciating the stained glass.

    To complement our visit we called into the cafe where we were served a lovely latte and a huge jam and cream scone, delicious and every bit homemade.

    A voluntary donation is requested and we were happy to donate, it was such a wonderful experience for a small amount of money.

    Fabulous tour! Lots of great food and drink, and information about the city along the way. It was actually excellent value for me, with so much food of good portions, and also plenty of drinks (alcohol offered, non- alcoholic available). Great day out and highly recommend

    This was my first visit to Durham so I was keen to see all the city had to offer. Peter was a great guide, very knowledgeable and his love for his city shone throughout. He showed me many hidden gems that I would otherwise have missed had I opted to wander aimlessly around on my own. The tour was great value for money and of course the historic pub stops were a bonus. I would recommend Peters’ tour without hesitation to anyone with an interest of this fine City.

    Excellent tour with Peter. Really brought the city and its history to life. Have used guided tours abroad but this was the first time we did it in the UK and it was certainly worthwhile. Would not have got as much out of our trip without the tour. Would highly recommend.

    I did two tours, one of Hadrian's Wall, and one specially created for me, which followed the life story of a 19th century serial killer (for a book I'm working on). I kept congratulating myself on being smart enough to pick this tour company. The trips werebeautifully researched, fun, and incredibly knowledgeable. The guide, Anna Unger, was thoughtful, smart and just good company. Beautiful country, terrific guide, great experience start to finish.
