What people are saying about York
Starting at 9.00am across from the Minster,this was one of the best days out that my wife and I have had.Travelling through York,with a bit o social history was very interesting.Once into the countryside,the views were superb( and we are Scottish....used to great views!).Our guide,Chris,was constantly giving interesting facts but in a very informal and user friendly fashion.We visited a variety of villages and interesting hamlets with 2 hours in Haworth,plenty of time for a visit to the Bronte Parsonage and a lovely lunch in one of the many and varied cafes,pubs and restaurants.Great day out and even allow we had travelled often in Yorkshire,it was much better being a passenger!! Thank you for a great day out.Regards Jim and Cath Greenock.
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.
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.
It was a great experience overall. Interesting stories about Yorkshire and beautiful photo stops along the way. Everything went smoothly and we had enough time at every stop. The North York Moors are very beautiful and have a rich history. This trip is definitely worth it!
