This was a wonderful day trip, it enhanced our previous 5 day tour.

Graham was an excellent host. His knowledge of the local history and ability to impart that knowledge in such an interesting manner made the day a wonderful experience.

This is a must do. Graham, our guide was funny and kept us entertained the entire day. Holy Island is amazing and Alnwick Castle is breathtaking. So worth the time.
