What an informative evening! Violet our hostess was amazing. Her delivery of the stories was wonderful. She encouraged and contributed to discussion and answered all questions and if she didn't know the answer she found out for us.

Truely a fascinating tour! I didn't know this side of Newcastle's history and it's really interesting! Violet was an excellent guide and very knowledgable, and her sense of humour was quite grand indeed! All around, quite an awesome tour, with an awesome guide, and fascinating history

A lovely experience, Violet was a friendly, accurate and witty guide who captivated myself and the rest of the company, as well as made me feel like I walked away with just a bit more knowledge.

Demi made the tour interesting with her knowledge on the stories. I enjoyed her friendly way, sense of humor and she made the group feel comfortable. I loved wondering around the streets and hearing about the history and crimes of Newcastle. The walk near the ocean was gorgeous too, listening to the crashing waves on route.
