"Our group has had two superb holidays organised by Northern Secrets to North East England and North Wales. The accommodation and itineraries were excellent.  We were kept fully informed during the planning process and were accompanied by excellent and knowledgeable guides.  With regard to the future, we are looking to organise further holidays with Northern Secrets."
Wynn Morris, Bearsted Active Retirement Association

"Alex from Northern Secrets is phenomenal -- perfect blend of history and cultural information and humour. His passion for the region was clear, especially for Newcastle. I don't think I would have properly appreciated Newcastle or been as enthusiastic about it as I now am without Alex's commentary on the evolution of the city."
US-UK Fulbright Commission

"Thank you for all that you did for us in Newcastle during the past week.
You brought humour, knowledge, kindness and organisation, and you were a key part in the way that the group so greatly enjoyed the week.
I will happily recommend you and Northern Secrets to others, and do feel free to give my details if anyone is seeking a commendation for you. I will also share your details within the Diocese here, as and when other priests ask me about the pilgrimage.
All in all, though, it is very evident that it has been an excellent week, and I am sure I will be in touch again when the time comes to take another pilgrimage North."

Father Dominic, Basildon

Just a note to thank you most sincerely for all the organisation Northern Secrets delivered!  We all enjoyed our trip, the hotel you chose, the weather and of course your mine of information.  Our driver Mike was a star bringing us home on the scenic route. Overall thank you for a great tour of North East England!
