What people are saying about York Minster

Great night with our tour guide, Ellie who was knowledgeable, friendly and created a great atmosphere on the tour. It was a nice sized group, compared to other tours we passed, and the smaller setting allowed it to be more personal and interesting! Good contrast of humour, seriousness and facts! Would definitely recommend.

Brilliant tour! We all really enjoyed it including our teenage kids. Our guide Finn was really knowledgeable, very engaging and good fun. It was my birthday present and I’d definitely recommend it. Everyone on the tour had a great time!

The guide, Finn, was ever so engaging, charismatic and he managed to keep a fairly large group with children curious until the very end. Not to mention it was a wet and cold night! He's a great story teller! Thank you so much, Finn!

Interesting tour guide Fin, made the experience enjoyable, the group interacted too. I would recommend this as a fun way to spend a few hours
