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.

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.

On our recent holiday to Northumberland and Durham we were lucky enough to have the services and the company of your guide Tom Keating and I am writing to congratulate you on having the services of such an excellent guide. Throughout our tours he was most informative, interesting and fluent, never at a loss for answering questions and a great enthusiast for his subject. He was also a man of sentiment and he held our attention from beginning to end.

After our recent tour and trip to Newcastle I wanted to tell you that our U3A Group found your City tour so enjoyable and full of interest. The beautiful architecture in the buildings of Grey Street was an eye opener to the City. They particularly loved their visits to Trinity House and The Mining Institute, both such a part of Newcastle’s famous history. Thanks so much for working on the itinerary for me as I wanted to do so much. It all went so well.

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.

I am being inundated with Emails & thank you cards from our Group. All with one theme "Congratulations, Well Done" & "when can we go again?" As you say, they fell in love with North East England. You did say they would! Thank you for your contribution to a very successful holiday.
