An excellent tour…
We had a fantastic tour with Barry at 10:15 on April 5. Barry mentioned that he had been a history teacher and he must have been an excellent one. He combined interesting stories, personal connections, and a wonderfully dry sense of humour to make the argument that York has been the location for a variety of turning points in history. We appreciated his enthusiasm – he is an excellent tour leader and we were so glad we were able to do this. Thank you, AVG, for this remarkable (and free) service. And thank you, too, Barry!
Thank you very much for the walking tour last Friday with Martin our guide – he was amazing!! We (6 Dutch people with one wheelchair) enjoyed York.
The weather was very cold, and that was a little bit sad, but The Blue Bell was a very good (warm) tip!!!
Thank You very much Martin!!! Kind regards, the Dutch friends from Arnhem.
Our walk around York yesterday was fantastic! Neal combined much knowledge with humor and energy. Visiting from the States again, we wanted to do something in the North. We weren’t disappointed! Thank you! Greg Carlson
I want to express my sincere appreciation for the guided walk my students and I received yesterday, led by guide John May. Our group of 22 university students is from Norway, and it was their first time in York. Although it was cold and damp outside, and my students didn’t all show up at the meeting point as planned, John led the tour with considerable skill and humour. He was well-informed about local history, and his enthusiasm carried the students through the afternoon. Generous with his time, he changed the usual order of the tour to meet my “lost” students midway, which was really appreciated.
I know I speak for my whole group in thanking the association and John especially for a lovely afternoon yesterday.
