What people are saying about York

Alfred was fantastic! Made our trip to York very memorable.

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! :)

Alfred was an excellent walking tour guide for his home town

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.

A Guided Walk Round The Walled City Of York

Really informative and very enjoyable. Our guide, Alfred, was excellent. His knowledge of the City ran far deeper that than of a guide, he clearly has a deep connection to York and provided insightful and humorous commentary as we walked. The pace was just right. There was also very good use of an electronic device (iPad) to provide additional background and supporting evidence to questions. Overall, a great experience. Thank you.

Alfred was pleasant, polite and knowledgeable with plenty of stories.

The text we received acknowledging the booking gave clear instructions where to meet our guide. We were met with a pleasant smile and welcome, and it just got better. Alfred knows a lot about York and it’s history. We enjoyed the tour, which covered a small area of the city (not too much walking) and highly recommend it as an excellent and fun way to see York’s central historical sights.

Sarah lead an excellent historic tour of York

Sarah gave our small group a warm welcome and lead us to places we would never have discovered ourselves giving us a detailed history of each place we visited . We all learnt so much about York it’s history , people , industries in the past and now a days from this exceptionally knowledgable lady . All in all it could not be faulted .
