    The tour was really good and informative. Violet was a very nice guide. The walk wasn’t too difficult and had lots of stops. Would definitely recommend

    Although the host was very kind and was doing a good job, we did not enjoy our experience. We thought it would be more thrilling and exciting. It is more of a history tour.

    A great evening walk through the lit streets of Newcastle led by an engaging knowledgeable guide. We would definitely recommend for your next visit to Newcastle.

    I had a great time. East End Newcastle is a bit hilly however the tour is an easy pace to enjoy the walk and the tour guide's tales of darkness. I had a torch with me as its very dark and the ground was unstable in places.

    Had a great night on the Newcastle’s true crime tour. Learnt so much from Aiden, he was very knowledgeable of the area and happy to clarify information when needed.

    Went on the Newcastle walking tour last night..such a great experience, we learnt so much and our guide, Aiden, was super knowledgeable and great fun! Would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the area or for locals to learn the history of the city.

    Had a great time. I booked this tour for my husband's birthday knowing that he would really like this but it turned out we both had a great time. Our guide Violet was very entertaining and informative. All the stories were very interesting and we enjoyed the walk around Newcastle and found areas we had never been before (we've lived here for just over a year). I would definitely recommend this to anyone who would like to do a little something different. A great night out!!
