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. Jessica, Nord University

Just to say how much we enjoyed our tour with Peter this afternoon. He was very informative and the two hour plus tour past all too quickly. Will highly recommend your free tour to friends. Thank you.

We joined the walking tour with Keith as our guide yesterday. His knowledge of the history of York and its many historic buildings, people and places whether in Roman Medieval or Victorian times was so impressive. By walking with him he was able to point out and we were able to appreciate places buildings and signs that would otherwise have been meaningless. He made the tour a pleasure to go on.
We were so enthused by his way of bringing the past to life that in the afternoon we joined him for a tour of York’s historic pubs.

I would like to say a big thanks to our guide last Monday (14th August). He was wonderful, and amazing. The job of this organisation is huge, and I recommend the walking tour with these volunteers.
