    This trip was truly special. Our guide Alex met us in the pouring rain but his phenomenal knowledge just melted away the weather as we were treated to 4 hours of amazing facts and stories. Well done 👏 A remarkable day!

    We spent a great afternoon with Alex, who gave us a great deal of information about the construction ofHadrian's wall as well as the living and working conditions of the Roman soldiers in the forts. He is extremely knowledgeable and his enthusiasm helped make history come alive for us.

    Thank you for this review. We really enjoy showing visitors the Roman heritage of the North East and it was a pleasure showing you both around. Have a brilliant rest of your trip around Britain. Alex Iles
