guide and very knowledgable, and her sense of humour was quite grand indeed! All around,

Night Tour of the City!

Highly recommend a tour of the city in the night with Dark Stories. I saw Newcastle in a different way.
Historical, factual and quite remarkable. Our guide was EXCEPTIONAL going above and beyond
and so full of knowledge. I had a very enjoyable time. Thank you.

Terrific Tour

A friend and I had a wonderful tour with our guide. She was so warm,friendly and knowledgeable. The
stories were so fascinating and left us wanting more. One story in particular was the stuff of a Stephen King novel!
I can’t wait to revisit Newy to do the tour again! Highly recommended!
