Welcome to the Durham website. No matter how long or short your stay, please let me enhance your tours in North East England with friendly, local professional Blue Badge Guiding Services, which include Durham City and County Durham. By sharing my in-depth knowledge and passion for this area I aim to provide you with an enjoyable and memorable experience.
In addition to the delights of Durham City with its World Heritage Site of Cathedral & Castle we can also offer scenic tours of the beautiful Durham Dales of Weardale and Teesdale.
New Opportunity for Groups - Bespoke guided coach tours exploring the Northern Saints Trails, including World Heritage Sites of Durham and Hadrian's Wall, with Hexham and other locations on the trails.
For individuals, small or large groups, whether your visit is on foot, by car, minibus or coach please contact me and I will do everything possible to ensure your visit is memorable with a professional guide and member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding and British Guild of Tourist Guides.
I also provide personalised guiding services for tours of North East England with opportunities to enjoy the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland coastline and castles including Alnwick and Bamburgh, Holy Island and South Tyneside to Sunderland Coastline which inlcudes Catherine Cookson Country. Newcastle is a speciality, and we can provide Newcastle walking tours or Newcastle coach tours, or a combination, which will bring to life exactly what this exciting destination has to offer, its history, heritage and thriving cultural life.
I have great pride and passion for these areas and am privileged to be able to guide visitors around places I love so much personally.
Groups visiting the area can take advantage of welcome talks to introduce the area, or talks on a range of specialist subjects in line with their visit
Our time with you has been so precious, rare and golden. You could not have been more kind and considerate to our needs and desire to learn about your beautiful region, not to mention that it was a joy to just be with you. Sally and I agree our highlight was visiting Durham Cathedral. It was awesome! We can’t thank you enough and we shall never forget you. – B&S B. Ohio.
Tom Keating was the most informative, fluent and entertaining guide, an excellent ambassador for your region. He held our attention on the tours from beginning to end. Our party all agreed he is the best guide we have ever encountered. North East England is so lucky to have the services of such an excellent guide. - RD. West Sussex.
