Customer reviews from the Hadrian's Wall Path

“Well organised, great accommodation, everything went smoothly and good value for money.”
Mr Anderson, USA
“The two sections we walked were stunning and others who were walking the whole of Hadrian’s Wall said that these were by far the best sections.”
Mrs Beard, Australia
“Everything worked as promised; great scenery; good accommodation; interesting museums. This was our third trip with Contours.”
Mr Bregha, Canada
“The history, the countryside, the B n B hosts, baggage transfer all contributed it to a great experience. It was well organized and a perfect combination of history, activity, the outdoors, friendly people, good pub food, and comfortable accommodations.”
Mrs Mazer, USA
“We loved every minute, despite the weather not being great.”
Mrs Lewis, UK
“Very well organised and nice weather! Wanted to carry on at the end of the 3 days.”
Mrs Elkin, UK
“Great B&B's. Excellent food. Extremely helpful/friendly hosts.”
Mrs Van Muijlwijk-Zomerman, Canada
“Everything worked seamlessly. Accommodation was good to excellent.”
Mr Poole, UK
“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
