Lots of customers had a brilliant time on their Solway Adventure. Check out what they had to say:
“I think we all came away with a feeling for the lifestyle of Solway residents, the history and geography of a rather hidden area, which should so rightly be treasured.” – D. Hasted, Lancashire, UK
“Monday’s tour was brilliant. I didn’t think you could fill a day along the coast with so much interest.” – Millie, Carlisle, UK
“I totally enjoyed the tour, as someone from Canada who knew nothing about the Solway coast. I liked the excellent diversity of cultural and natural heritage stops that we made during the day. Fiona is well-versed in knowledge of the area. It was a fascinating day!” – Paula, Ontario, Canada
“The landscape, history and nature of the Solway coast is amazing. We learned about the Romans, early Christianity, the Reivers, the death of King Edward I, all the way through to the world wars and the Cold War. It was a wonderful day. Fiona’s passion and knowledge made this a really special and memorable day out.” – Ted, Penrith, UK
