5.0
Wild Dog Outdoors runs historical tours suitable for all ages. You'll explore with a guide dressed in authentic clothing, matching the period of your tour.

  • We had a great bushcraft session with our kids which was fun and interesting for the adults as well. Kev is very knowledgeable on all sorts of topics and we learnt a lot. Thanks!
  • My mom and I booked this last minute and were thrilled he was available. From the moment we met him he was so friendly. From the car ride there through the tour and on the way back to hotel he was incredibly informative and charismatic. Before the tour we didn't know a lot about Hadrian's Wall and were so glad we decided to hire a tour guide. I would not go to the wall without a guide and Kevin is your guy!! Kevin was fantastic!! I highly, highly recommend him!!!
  • Thank you Kevin for a brilliant tour of Cawfields, Housesteads and Vindolanda. Learned a lot, from the Celtic origin of chain mail to the brutal "reconditioning" of left-handed Roman soldiers to the advertisement value of Roman footwear, delivered in the best story telling fashion, despite the wintry weather.
  • What a fantastic experience. When ever I researched these kind of things I've always been worried they were going to be managed by ex SAS types who would sneer at my pathetic attempt to start a fire and make me do press ups every time I stood on a twig! Having read the reviews I plumped for Wild Dog Outdoors and I'm so glad I did. Kevin is such an affable guy. Mild mannered and charming with a stunning knowledge of the outdoors you can't help but be infected by his enthusiasm. By Kevin's side, his wife Sara. I think that famous quote "behind every great man is a great woman" springs to mind. A brilliant partnership and together they make the whole day an unforgettable experience. I wish I was a professional reviewer so I could do them more justice. All I can say is; Go, have a great day then come back here and tell everyone else.
  • We had an amazing day with Wilddogoutdoors. The kids absolutely loved it!
