COVERING ALL YOUR TRANSPORT NEEDS

TAXIS from 4 to 8 seats — COACHES/BUSES from 9 to 53 seats

Tyne Idols' newly restored vintage Atlantean, the one we all went to school on, is now available for special events and functions, hospitality, birthdays and tour jaunts (you can even arrange for one of our very knowledgeable tour guides on board if you want).

With our new on-board rock 'n' roll sound system and a capacity of 70 passengers this is the ideal special occasion transport — you can even have live entertainment through our 2,000 watt PA inside or out — this beautifully restored double decker can take you on a night out to all of your favourite places and haunts without having to stop the celebrations!

An Audacious Alan Accepts Another Awesome Accolade!

Just in case anyone has been living under a rock recently and hasn't watched local news or perused the press, our esteemed Tours Co-ordinator Alan Fidler has picked up a national award for his services.

Alan has won the national Visit England and Daily Mirror Tourism Superstar Award, recognition for the years of effort he has put into development of the Tours side of our business. Working with our partners at DFDS Seaways he has put in many hours 'behind the scenes' to develop the highly praised tours to Alnwick — now being expanded to Cragside and Hadrian's Wall.

Alan's boundless enthusiasm for all things Northumbrian (regrettably this extends to the skirl and drone of the Northumbrian pipes) has now been recognised by Visit England, the national tourism promotion agency for England.

Visitors from around the world have testified to his devotion and total commitment to ensuring that any tour Alan guides is lively and thought-provoking, bringing to the attention of those new to the area the fantastic history and heritage of a region which has played a crucial but for many an unrecognised part in the history of our country.
