Keith provided an excellent tour of the Lake District and Hadrian's wall for my wife, son and I. He was prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. We could not have asked for anyone more well informed of the history and geography of the areas of interest. He is a friendly, engaging man with many interests and hobbies and could not have been more patient and helpful. We were able to enjoy views and locations that we could not have gotten to in any other way. Quite satisfied with his service.
