Northern Secrets which won a coveted award at this year’s Group Travel Awards has been operating for 8 years bringing thousands of people to the region every year as it provides quality bespoke group holidays.

Now, individual travellers will be able to benefit from Northern Secrets expertise and passion.  The launch of a new website promoting Northern Secrets Guided Tours enables individual travellers to indulge their passion be it for city culture, history and heritage, adventure or the great outdoors, with a tailor-made trip in Northern Britain.

The founder of Northern Secrets, Alex Jacobs was the youngest person in the UK to gain the Blue Badge, the UK’s highest guiding qualification for tourism professionals, before starting out at as a guide and a tourist guide provider.

Alex Jacobs, managing director of Northern Secrets said:

“Our award-winning service will now tailor-make a trip for any tourists specific needs. We already operate a corporate service hosting media, VIPs and important customers for companies in the region, helping them to ‘seal the deal’ as it were, so this new step is an expansion of our core service but to a new market.”

“With a huge range of accommodation and itineraries, to suit all budgets, our tours are all specially designed with the individual in mind. Our team are passionate and enjoy creating authentic holidays to North East England, Yorkshire, Scotland and Wales, where you can really experience everything about this amazing region.”

New customers could be people from the region enjoying a special day or the recipient of a gift; coming here from other parts of the country attracted by the great things this region has to offer or international travellers.

“Where they are from is not important,” says Alex. “All customers will receive the highest possible levels of service. We don’t sub-contract like some bigger companies. We have our own highly trained – all Blue Badge qualified – guides who are all very passionate about North East England.”

Alex already works with all tourism bodies across the North East including Visit Northumberland, NewcastleGateshead Initiative and Visit County Durham as well as Port of Tyne, Port of Sunderland and many of the major attractions, and with his dual British and German nationality is a proud ambassador for the region.
