What makes a good guided tour?
Good preparation is essential to ensuring my guests receive the best possible experience. Once I know more about your interests, the time you have available and your levels of fitness, I can then develop an itinerary and a guided tour that is tailor-made for you.
Learning should be fun and that is what I want you to experience during our guided tour. By gradually building up your understanding of the history, heritage and breathtaking landscapes of Hadrian’s Wall or the Lake District (both World Heritage Sites), you will feel enriched with positive memories that you can share with others.
You are not joining a group or having a set tour that is repeated on a daily or weekly basis. This is your tour, and by listening to and understanding your requirements, I can develop the optimum tour that works for you.
Anna is a Blue Badge Tourist Guide of the highest level. She specializes in Cumbria and Hadrian’s Wall. Her focus is on private customized tours for her guests. She is exceedingly organized, provided a detailed itinerary and then we spoke for 45 minutes on our likes and dislikes and how to get the most from our day as it was our first time at Hadrian’s Wall. She then compiled an updated itinerary.
We spent a fabulous day on the wall. It was informative and she is exceedingly knowledgeable. To be honest, we never would have gotten as much out of our trip without her assistance and it was worth every penny.
I could not recommend Anna more highly. You will not be disappointed.

As someone who enjoys planning trips, Anna is a joy to work with. She’s very good at pacing a trip and she is by far the best prepared guide I’ve ever known. She’s very knowledgeable about all the places she’ll take you to and matches the level of detail to what her clients want.
