Customer reviews from the Hadrian's Wall Path

“Fabulous scenery coupled with incredible history.”
Ms Conley, USA
“I have dreamed of walking Hadrian's wall for 45 years. Doing so was a dream come true. The walk from Chollerford to Steel Rigg was a real physical and mental challenge compounded by the fact that it was very windy and there was horizontal rain. At the end of that day I felt fortunate to have done it. I highly recommend the walk plus I recommend booking with Contours.”
Mrs Wright, UK
“Thoroughly enjoyed our trek!”
Mr Winward, USA
“Amazing experience, very well organised.”
Mr Wilford, UK
“Our party of 8 Aussies thoroughly enjoyed the 6 day walk. We would recommend.”
