This, in my opinion, is THE way to get a good understanding of York. We were fortunate to have an excellent tour guide (human not recorded) and we managed to hop on and off three times and each time got the same bus and guide. He recognized us each time.

Very enjoyable tour of York, we boarded at Clifford's Tower as it was 5 mins from our hotel. There was a recorded voice explaining places of interest along the way. Got off at Exhibition Square, as we wanted to visit York Minster and do some shopping. Boarded again, and there was a commentator with a microphone talking to the passengers this time. He was very knowledgeable and quite funny too. We got off again by our hotel. I would recommend this trip to see parts of York that you may miss just walking round.

Picked me up from stop just outside my hotel and dropped me at the york art gallery, york minster and museum Gardens stop. It was really convenient, comfortable, interesting commentary and I saw some of the city I might not have seen otherwise. It was very quiet when I used it and they did not stop at all the stops just those requested but you don't know where a stop is located on a street first time around. They almost went past without picking me up.
