The tour offers more sights than some other tours of the beautiful city of Newcastle. On it you will hear about the history of the city from the Iron Age to present day, and also about some of the city's more interesting characters.

I would highly recommend this tour. Even as a regular visitor to Newcastle I learned so much. Rob is an excellent guide. Evening time makes the tour even more atmospheric.

Rob was a fantastic tour...

Rob was a fantastic tour guide. He was full of enthusiasm as he showed us around Newcastle. The hours flew by and we were so engaged in his stories that we totally forgot that we were cold before the tour! He is incredibly knowledgeable, friendly
