What people are saying about Whitby
It was worth spending. Helen our guide was flexible and provided insightful information about the whole trip. Paul was a very polite and considerate driver. The van was comfy. Highly recommended!
If you are staying in York and want to get onto the moors and visit Whitby this is the trip for you. Whitby is v difficult to reach by public transport. Learned a lot from Lee our friendly driver. Interesting stops en route. Stops at Goathland if you are a Heartbeat fan. We loved Helmsley and Pickering and views from the beacon on top of the moors.
Has to be done what a wonderful day we had and saw so much in the time we had could not have done this on our own amazing countryside and superb little villages. Peter our guide was exceptional and so informative. Will do this again when in York. First class.
The minibus was a bit early, so we made a good start, first stop was Helmsley where we had about 40 minutes, just time to have a good look round and buy some Curd tarts (which we both love!), then on to Whitby with a photo stop on the moors. Fish & Chips and Ice cream lunch and some photos of the harbour. The on to Goathland for the Steam train and a look round the Heartbeat sites. On to Pickering by Steam train and then back to York with a short photo stop at an old ruined Abbey. Back by 5.00pm - great value day.
Lovely day out on the moors with visit to Goathland and Whitby in the morning. Brilliant drive across the top of the moors with extremely pretty views and we stopped off at two abbeys. Fantastic day with JJ our tour guide and driver.
