What people are saying about York
We felt so fortunate to have Alfred take us on a private tour. He is very knowledgeable and was so kind to allow time for our queries. Our tour actually went over the allotted time (because we wanted to know more, and asked a lot of questions, etc.) Alfred was very gracious and didn't seem to mind this. We can't express enough how special it is to have an expert tour guide take you around the marvelous city of York. There are very few places that exist where one can stand in one spot and learn about 2000 years worth of history just by turning around in a circle and noting every thing around you. But you need an expert to point all those special things out. *Ask for Alfred, you will be so pleased! :)
We went on an evening walking tour in York with Alfred and his wife Sarah in July 2018. Alfred was extremely well informed about the history and architecture of York, and is passionate about his town. He took us on a relaxed but fascinating tour through the highways, byways and snickleways of the historical centre of the town, with a multitude of stories that brought that history to life. The two hours seemed to pass very quickly and we were left with a much more comprehensive view of York's 2000 year history.
Really enjoyed the tour, our guide was engaging and fun and you get to taste your way through it. I really loved how interactive it is and it suits all ages. My daughter went there on a school trip and enjoyed it so much she wanted to go again on our visit to York. Don't miss out on the history of chocolate that is part of York's past and present.
We only got off the bus twice as the two stops had six of the things we wanted to see or tour. While we enjoyed, and learned a lot from, the commentary, we were disappointed that it was a canned voice speaking. The brochure we got said there would be a live person giving the commentary, which we prefer.
We went on the bus twice, once with the recorded voice for our tour guide and then a great young man. Both tours were interesting and had a fun element to them and they give us different information.
