What people are saying about York Minster
Alfred The Great (tour guide)! What a super experience it was to meet such an excellent and well humoured guide. Right from the get-go, we received a helpful text message giving clear instruction on when and where to meet. We were greeted with a friendly welcome and a chance to introduce ourselves. The tour itself was so informative with a perfect humour-to-fact ratio to make it perfectly memorable. I particularly like how Alfred referred to is by name throughout the tour. I would certainly recommend this tour to all. Be sure to pick up a copy of the tour book Alfred has written too. It’s almost like taking Alfred home with you. Bravo!
Very interesting and our tour guide Alfred, was very knowledgeable! I’d recommend booking this for your first night of York so you can appreciate the history of York while exploring during the rest of your stay! We happened to bump into Alfred the next afternoon and had a nice, and again interesting and informative chat!
Alfred was the most enthusiastic, knowledgeable and, where necessary, witty guide for our walking tour around York. It was wonderful to be with someone who is so passionate about his city, we came away knowing far more about the lovely city of York than when we started. Well done Alfred!!
We really enjoyed our walking tour. It was well organised and we thought Emily, our guide, was excellent, and full of very interesting knowledge. She absolutely made our visit to York, she was really nice and made history enjoyable to listen to. Thanks Emily.
Sarah, our guide, was very knowledgeable and therefore made this walking tour very interesting. My only criticism is that in such a historical city, I’m sure walk could have been longer than 1 hour.
