Are The tours suitable for people who are ‘x’ years old?

We have made every effort to design our tours so that they can be enjoyed by as many people as possible. The terrain of the North East of England can be steep and each one of our tours differs in layout and topography. Some of the paths may be uneven and some of our tours may be unsuitable for those who are recovering from injuries or do not feel comfortable on long distance walks – this includes older and younger customers.  If you have any other questions please do contact us.

Do you provide gift vouchers?

We provide a range of gift vouchers that can be purchased by contacting us. We can provide these as physical gift vouchers or as a digital voucher.

Do you provide tours in ‘x’ language

Though our primary guide speaks English as his first language we do have access to translation and linguists  – please contact us prior to booking to discuss details.
