For our Northumbria Holiday Group Visit we were so pleased to be accompanied by our “excellent, informative and entertaining Blue Badge Guide Tom Keating”. The tours included Newcastle, Hadrian’s Wall and Hexham, Lindisfarne and the Farne Islands. Our group voted for Beamish as the highlight attraction of their tour, along with Tom of course.

I'm certain this group are really hooked on the area now. Weardale, Stanhope and Upper Teesdale were wonderful to discover with you. We will come back again and I will really look forward to that. Thank you for everything.

Your input with the tour Itinerary for our holiday in Northumbria made it so much easier for us to plan and promote. We knew with your presence we could relax in the knowledge our day tours are feasible and achievable. Everything was perfect. If anyone can show off the Durham Dales to its best it’s you Tom.


The Group Organiser was very happy with everything. The passengers were complimentary of the whole two days and said the coastline of South Shields to Sunderland was stunning. They never realised it was like that. Thank you for putting the Itinerary together.

Thank you for your excellent days with our U3A Travel Group in Northumbria. You made the area so special to us on our visit. Hadrian’s Wall was amazing, even in the rain, and you brought everything to life for us including Durham Cathedral and Castle.
We hope to meet again soon.

Hi Tom, I so appreciate everything from you – thank you.  You have been amazing to deal with and you did so much preliminary work to ensure the smooth running of the groups time with you and for them to have the best possible experience. I am so pleased everything went according to plan. My Group Leaders have said the tour of the Roman Fort site was excellent with lots of questions and lunching arrangements were perfect. Thank you also for putting them on the quickest route North. We will be in touch to work with you again.
